Are you familiar with Susan Cain’s book, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World that Can’t Stop Talking?  I highly recommend it.  The book prompted a recent article in TIME Magazine titled, Shy.  Susan Cain’s book shows how we undervalue introverts in our society.  The the traditional school setting  is not ideal for this personality type.  While there are many varieties of education that are better suited for introverts, Waldorf Education is one type I’d recommend looking into.  Waldorf teachers are trained on the Four Temperaments and how children of each temperament learn best.  It is worth a look for anyone who thinks their introverted child is in a mismatched school situation.  Introverts are valuable to our society.  Their talent should not be wasted by placing them in an environment that does not suit their needs.
