The Irresistible Introvert: Harness the Power of Quiet Charisma in a Loud World Read Online Free - Learn the tools to shed your mask of extroversion, develop your own magnetism, and reveal the true you.
One third to one half of Americans are introverts in a culture that celebrates—even enforces—an ideal of extroversion and a cult of personality. Political leaders are charismatic, celebrities bask in the spotlight, and authority figures are assertive. It is no surprise that a “quiet revolution” has begun to emerge among the “invisible” half of the population, asserting that they are just as powerful in their own unique ways.
The Irresistible Introvert embodies the spirit of this revival and breaks down the myth that charisma is reserved for extroverts only. This mini manifesto shows introverts how to master the art of quiet magnetism in a noisy world—no gregariousness required! Within these pages, you’ll discover how to shed the mask of extroversion and reveal a more compelling (and authentic) you. You’ll also learn how to:
• Master the inner game of intrigue
• Manage your energy for optimal engagement
• Create an emotional ecosystem for charisma
• Establish introverted intimacy
• Cultivate communication skills for quiet types
As a “professional” charismatic introvert, author Michaela Chung demonstrates that you no longer have to forcefully push yourself outward into the world against your nature, but can rather magnetize people inward toward the true you. In the process, you’ll learn to embrace your “innie life” and discover potential you never knew you had.

This book is more pop psychology than psychology and more memoir than academic. I was hoping for a book more along the lines of "Dyslexic Advantage" and "Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World that Can't Stop Talking", but this book felt more like a rant against a world that doesn't treat intr...

I took the official Myers-Briggs test (the one you pay for and mail in for assessment) and scored an 8/100 on the extrovertion scale. Or, I'm 92% introverted, if you like. Either way, I've spent my whole life retreating to a fortress of solitude to recharge and recover from people-overload. Yes,...

I'm going to practice my resting bitch face.

My fellow book lovers, does any of the following sound familiar?
“You need to participate more in class.”
“You’re too quiet. Speak up!”
“Get out more! Socialize! Stop being such a hermit.”
“What do you mean you’re leaving early? The fun is just beginning!”
If you’ve heard these phrases countless times...

Wish I'd read this in my twenties!
I rarely give five stars, but just the introduction to this book had me screaming (internally, of course) "Yes! That is SO me!" Finally, information that explains much of my behavior (hating to talk on the phone for one) that others don't get and that even I neve...

She was too negative about introversion for my taste.

TLDR: The book felt confused in genre and left me wanting more outside help with her claims and ideas, but I did glean plenty of notes for myself as an introvert who hadn't read any introvert books yet.
I'm an introvert who hasn't read any books on introversion before. I hadn't read the auth...

Two things first: the title will make you expect a more traditional self-help book. And it was helpful, just not in the way I expected. Reviews criticize Chung for using too many anecdotes, but they served to illustrate thought processes I felt alone in. Secondly, look elsewhere (like Susan Cain'...

I'm finding the word "irresistible" a tricky word to spell. Being an "irresistible introvert" though is much easier and even more enjoyable since reading Michaela Chung's book. Everything about being an introvert is affirmed and applauded.
"The most basic definition of an introvert is someone who...

A mini-manifesto for introverts. Introversion has become a bit of a "thing" lately. It's okay to want to spend time by yourself or not want to go to that party or need some downtime after hanging out with friends. Author Michaela Chung is presenting a "mini-manifesto" (as it says on the back cove...
