Carl Jung knew about the prejudice of Western culture against the introverted. He could tolerate it when it came from the extroverted. But he felt that the introverted who undervalue themselves are truly doing the world a disservice.
[Introverts] are living evidence that this rich and varied world with all of its overflowing and intoxicating life is not purely external, but also exists within…their life teaches more than words…their lives teach with other possibility, the interior life which is so painfully wanting in our civilisation.Carl Jung on Introversion. Quoted in ‘The Highly Sensitive Person’ by Elaine Aron
Read my review: The Highly Sensitive Person by Elaine Aron
For some of you, reading this book may be like holding a mirror up to yourself and really seeing yourself for the first time. This was most definitely the case for me.
