  22. In my previous job, we had a new computer system that we had to be trained in, and one of my trainers gave my a book called "Quiet!" about how introverts fit into an extroverted world as I was an introverted team leader in a department of extroverts. It's been a good read to grasp an understanding of the differences between people in this world. Has given me a few things to think about! :)
