“Now that you are an adult, you might still feel a pang of guilt when you decline a dinner invitation in favor of a good book.  Or maybe you like to eat alone in restaurants and could do without the pitying looks from fellow diners.  Or you’re told that you’re ‘in your head too much,’ a phrase that’s often deployed against the quiet and cerebral.

Of course, there’s another word for such people: thinkers.”

– Quiet by Susan Cain
