The Introvert and Extrovert in Love
Making It Work When Opposites AttractBook - 2007
The Innie and Outie Guide to a Great Relationship
We use the words everyday, but what does it really mean to be an introvert or an extrovert? And what does it mean to be an introvert in a romantic relationship with an extrovert? Can it work? Surprisingly, psychologists tell us that despite their obvious differences, introverts and extroverts can enjoy a strong, stable-and fun-relationship. The key to introvert/extrovert bliss lies in understanding what makes the other person tick and using your differences to help balance and enrich the relationship.
This book offers advice for making it happen:Learn how innies and outies process information and communicate differently Discover ways to create a fulfilling social life for yourself and your partner Find creative ways to blend decision-making and future-planning styles Get past the dangerous question, why can't you be more like me? Turn up the heat in the introvert/extrovert bedroom
The book is based on current scientific research and innie/outie interviews. It is also based upon the authors' personal experiences as a mixed couple--introvert Marti Olsen Laney and extrovert Michael Laney have been happily married for more than forty-two years. They must be doing something right!
From the critics
QuotesAdd a Quote
Adler and Jung had a falling out with Freud . . . Knowing Adler and Jung were both introverts, Freud, being angry at both of them, from that time forward wrote about introversion in a negative light. He described introverts as neurotic and self-absorbed, and he portrayed only extroverts as healthy.
Marti’s career requires her to travel frequently to promote her books. As a doctor once jokingly told Marti, “Publishers try to kill authors on book tours so their work will become more valuable.”
