Book Title: The I's Have It: Reflections on Introversion in Student Affairs
Publisher: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform
Author: Amma Marfo
Between 1/3 and 1/2 of individuals are considered introverted, a nebulous and often misunderstood label that can summon images of silent, antisocial misfits. In reality, the introverted temperament has a great deal of value in society- and can have particular value in the field of student affairs, where it can often be ignored as a viable way of being. Featuring the stories of nearly twenty higher education professionals and considerable research on introversion, THE I'S HAVE IT strives to demystify several elements of introversion, call attention to how it is masked in our daily dealings with one another, and how to best manage it in a variety of roles that one may encounter in the field of student affairs. This book is perfect for those who are navigating the field as introverts, those who understand themselves but want a way to explain their style to others, and even the extrovert seeking understanding on how to work with an introverted employee, coworker, or student.
