Book Description

March 15 2007
The Innie and Outie Guide to a Great Relationship

We use the words everyday, but what does it really mean to be an introvert or an extrovert? And what does it mean to be an introvert in a romantic relationship with an extrovert? Can it work? Surprisingly, psychologists tell us that despite their obvious differences, introverts and extroverts can enjoy a strong, stable-and fun-relationship. The key to introvert/extrovert bliss lies in understanding what makes the other person tick and using your differences to help balance and enrich the relationship.

This book offers advice for making it happen:

- Learn how innies and outies process information and communicate differently
- Discover ways to create a fulfilling social life for yourself and your partner
- Find creative ways to blend decision-making and future-planning styles
- Get past the dangerous question, why can't you be more like me?
- Turn up the heat in the introvert/extrovert bedroom

The book is based on current scientific research and innie/outie interviews. It is also based upon the authors' personal experiences as a mixed couple-introvert Marti Olsen Laney and extrovert Michael Laney have been happily married for more than forty-two years. They must be doing something right!

This book really explains why my introverted husband and extroverted me fight so much, we are both reading it and we are understanding each other better. Less arguments and when we do have one, they don't last very long or get out of control!. Recomemded!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's already helping my marriage immensely!! :) Nov. 11 2008
By Calicath - Published on
I am only about 100 pages in with this book, and it has already changed the way I think about myself (100% Outie), AND about my husband (about an 85% Innie). I was starting to go down that dangerous path of 'Why can't he be a bit more like me at times?', and was not appreciating him for the differences that make "US" work. I now see that it's the way we think about our differences that counts.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who is at that 'hmmmmmm....' stage in their introvert/extrovert relationship.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent followup to the first book, The Introvert Advantage. March 3 2008
By Book Lover - Published on
This book is a great complement to the first book as it goes into the different types of relationships between introverts and extroverts. It includes the information that was in the first book but has the added dimension of exploring relationships.

I found it very insightful and helpful! Introverts and extroverts can have a good relationship if they understand the dynamics as explained in this book. Instead of resenting or feeling uncomfortable with a partner that is of the opposite type, understanding and appreciating differences can work in a great way!

5.0 out of 5 stars Introverts Dream Information Oct. 14 2010
By Angelique - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
There is so little information out there on Introverts. This book sheds light on the love relationship between introverts and extroverts. I am an introvert and have felt misunderstood all 52 years of my life. Not only should introverts read this but extroverts should too!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected July 26 2013
By Sarah - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book touches on some of the basics of introvert/extrovert relationships, but if you're looking for something with more depth and greater detail, I'd suggest Susan Cain's "Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking". "The Introvert & Extrovert in Love" didn't really do it for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this book! Jan. 2 2013
By Marti Mendenhall - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am an extrovert in a relationship with an introvert. This book is right on target, with the difference in between introverts/extroverts and men/women and how they process feelings, reason, and re-energize. This book has solidified the tools I need to help us thrive. Thank you!
