For anyone who loved Susan Cain's Quiet, comes this practical manifesto sharing the joys of introversion. . . This clever and pithy audiobook challenges introverts to take ownership of their personalities. . . with quiet strength.

You're not shy; rather, you appreciate the joys of quiet. You're not antisocial; instead, you enjoy recharging through time alone. You're not unfriendly, but you do find more meaning in one-on-one connections than large gatherings. By honoring what makes them unique, this astute and inspiring audiobook challenges introverts to "own" their introversion, igniting a quiet revolution that will change how they see themselves and how they engage with the world.

The Introverted Leader

by Jennifer Kahnweiler

Ask Bill Gates or Warren Buffett, leaders she cites as shy introspectives who have developed ways to thrive in a challenging environment.

Intruder

by Louis Charbonneau

The only link between these seemingly random occurrences is the Regional Data Center.Former FBI agent Michael Egan, the RDC's new security director, knows something more than coincidence is involved in these events. The RDC computers certainly aren't foolproof, but the incidents of the last week have grown in such frequency and intensity, it can only mean one thing. It's not a computer malfunction. The system has an intruder. Someone is in the RDC network, someone who does not belong there. The intruder is cruel, drunk with power, and his games with the RDC have already resulted in a man's death. If Egan and his colleagues can't stop him, many more will die. Hollister is under attack, and the only chance for survival may lie within the very machines where the crisis began.

The Intruders (Jake Grafton #6)

by Stephen Coonts

1973. The Vietnam War is finally over, but for Lieutenant Jake Grafton, U.S.N., freshly returned from two harrowing combat cruises, his own country seems almost as hostile. When his fists get him into trouble, he lands an excruciating eight-month cruise on the aircraft carrier COLUMBIA teaching Jarheads--Marines--the nuances of carrier aviation. As a Navy man working beside Marines without carrier aviation experience, Grafton's about to discover another world of fresh hell. Taking off and landing from a slippery flight deck, on a choppy sea in a pitch-black night, there is no room for error--or for animosity. And while these Marines have Jake wishing he was back fighting the VC, he'll have to learn to live with them. For they must fly together in the same cockpit, must lock into each other and into their million-dollar machines, and make the split-second decisions that hurtle them toward their common goals: excellence and survival.

Intrusion

If only he would let me in. I think I can make him feel something good. And for the first time in forever, I want to.He's made a labyrinth of himself. Now all I need to do is dare to find my way through.

Intuición

by Osho Osho

La intuición es la percepción directa de la realidad sin que haya ninguna interferencia de los prejuicios y la ideología de la mente. Es un «conocimiento que trasciende la lógica»; solo aquellos que son capaces de trascender las limitaciones de la lógica y el análisis son también capaces de responder creativamente a las situaciones nuevas y cambiantes que encuentran cada día. En este libro, Osho muestra el camino para eliminar los obstáculos que han sido colocados en el recorrido de nuestra intuición, de modo que esta pueda florecer y proporcionar así un nuevo tipo de inteligencia y plenitud a nuestras vidas.

Intuición y razón

by Mario Bunge

Hay muchas formas de intuición o comprensión súbita de algo: hecho, idea o símbolo. Pero, por no resultar de la observación ni del estricto raciocinio, toda intuición es altamente riesgosa. Por consiguiente, lejos de aceptarla a ciegas, debiéramos examinarla en forma crítica.El intuicionismo filosófico, como el de Bergson y de Husserl, afirma dogmáticamente la superioridad de la intuición sobre la observación y la razón: es anti intelectualista y, por lo tanto, enemigo de la ciencia. En cambio, el mal llamado intuicionismo matemático es rigurosamente racionalista, aunque estrecho. El científico y el técnico hacen uso constante de la intuición pero, en todos los casos, consideran sus frutos como provisorios y sujetos a confirmación o refutación.Sin intuición no arrancamos, y con ella sola nos desbarrancamos. No se trata, pues, de optar por la intuición o por la razón, sino de combinarlas. Debemos disciplinar racionalmente la intuición y permitir que ésta movilice a la razón. Por otro lado debemos evitar la tentación facilista del intuicionismo, por ser dogmático y estéril.En Intuición y razón Mario Bunge vuelca su saber filosófico y científico para contribuir al esclarecimiento de conceptos del conoci miento contemporáneo que, si bien gozan de gran difusión, casi nunca son estudiados con la profundidad que merecen.
