Diversity's Gifts

The Mystery within...

The importance of accepting the diversity of different personality types is being brought home for me in a new way as I begin reading “Quiet—The Power of Introverts in a World that Can’t Stop Talking” by Susan Cain.  Societies’ growing preference for the out-going and gregarious personality is disquieting in that it discriminates against the gifts of the more quiet and reflective introverts.  I now see, in a new way, how important it is to respect, revere and promote the gifts of both extroverts and introverts non-judgmentally.

What if in accepting the gifts of the other more often, we highlight the gift that we are?
