Bittersweet

release date: May 03, 2022
Bittersweet
The author of the bestselling phenomenon Quiet reveals the power of a bittersweet, melancholic outlook on life, and why our culture has been so blind to its value. With her mega-bestseller Quiet, Susan Cain urged our society to cultivate space for the undervalued, indispensable introverts among us, thereby revealing an untapped power hidden in plain sight. Now, she employs the same mix of research, storytelling, and memoir to explore why we experience sorrow and longing, and the surprising lessons these states of mind teach us about creativity, compassion, leadership, spirituality, mortality and love. Bittersweetness is a tendency to states of longing, poignancy, and sorrow; an acute awareness of passing time; and a curiously piercing joy when beholding beauty. It recognizes that light and dark, birth and death--bitter and sweet--are forever paired. A song in a minor key, an elegiac poem, or even a touching television commercial all can bring us to this sublime, even holy, state of mind--and, ultimately, to greater kinship with our fellow humans. But bittersweetness is not, as we tend to think, just a momentary feeling or event. It''s also a way of being, a storied heritage. Our artistic and spiritual traditions--amplified by recent scientific and management research--teach us its power. Cain shows how a bittersweet state of mind is the quiet force that helps us transcend our personal and collective pain. If we don''t acknowledge our own sorrows and longings, she says, we can end up inflicting them on others via abuse, domination, or neglect. But if we realize that all humans know--or will know--loss and suffering, we can turn toward each other. And we can learn to transform our own pain into creativity, transcendence, and connection. At a time of profound discord and personal anxiety, Bittersweet brings us together in deep and unexpected ways.

Quiet : the Power of Introverts in a World that Can't Stop Talking

release date: Jan 01, 2012
Quiet : the Power of Introverts in a World that Can't Stop Talking
At least one-third of the people we know are introverts. They are the ones who prefer listening to speaking, reading to partying; who invent and create but prefer not to pitch their own ideas; who favor working on their own over brainstorming in teams. Although they are often labeled quiet, it is to introverts we owe many of the great contributions to society--from Van Gogh''s sunflowers to the invention of the personal computer. Passionately argued, impressively researched, and filled with the indelible stories of real people, Quiet shows how dramatically we undervalue introverts, and how much we lose in doing so. Susan Cain charts the rise of the extrovert ideal over the twentieth century and explores its far-reaching effects--how it helps to determine everything from how parishioners worship to who excels at Harvard Business School. And she draws on cutting-edge research on the biology and psychology of temperament to reveal how introverts can modulate their personalities according to circumstance, how to empower an introverted child, and how companies can harness the natural talents of introverts. This extraordinary book has the power to permanently change how we see introverts and, equally important, how they see themselves. The north and south of temperament Pt. 1: The extrovert ideal. The rise of the mighty likeable fellow : how extroversion became the cultural ideal The myth of charismatic leadership: the culture of personality, a hundred years later When collaboration kills creativity: the rise of the new Groupthink and the power of working alone Pt. 2: Your biology, your self? Is temperament destiny?: nature, nurture, and the Orchid Hypothesis Beyond temperament: the role of free will (and the secret of public speaking for introverts) Franklin was a politician, but Eleanor spoke out of conscience : why cool is overrated Why did Wall Street cash and Warren Buffett prosper?: how introverts and extroverts think (and process dopamine) differently Pt. 3: Do all cultures have an extrovert ideal? Soft power: Asian-Americans and the extrovert ideal Pt. 7: How to love, how to work. When should you act more extroverted than you really are? The communication gap: how to talk to members of the opposite type On cobblers and generals: how to cultivate quiet kids in a world that can''t hear them Wonderland A note on the words Introvert and Extrovert.
