內容簡介


害羞不再是負面性格,讓害羞成為你最偉大的天賦與力量
透過歷史與文化的角度,解析害羞性格者在政治、文學、心理學上的重大影響

害羞是人類一種獨特的情緒特徵,縱使是個性外向的人也能理解害羞的感受。害羞是一種很普遍的現象,在尷尬或畏縮的情況下,甚至在一大群陌生人前說話及臉紅,都是害羞的感受。本書將透過文化歷史探討隱藏在世界各地的各種有害羞性格的人物與軼事。書中分享許的知名人物,例如達爾文、史努比作者查爾斯‧舒茲、謀殺天后阿加莎‧克莉絲蒂、芬蘭插畫家楊笙等,透過這些心碎及引人省思的故事,探討害羞所隱藏的偉大力量。不要讓害羞性格成為你人生的負擔,這是一項天賦,讓我們從不同的角度看世界,且啟發和豐富我們的心靈。

Our success as a species is built on sociability, so shyness in humans should be an anomaly. But it's actually remarkably common - we all know what it's like to cringe in embarrassment, stand tongue-tied at the fringe of an unfamiliar group, or flush with humiliation if we suddenly become the unwelcome centre of attention.

In Shrinking Violets, Joe Moran explores the hidden world of shyness, providing insights on everything from timidity in lemon sharks to the role of texting in Finnish love affairs. As he seeks answers to the questions that shyness poses - Why are we shy? Can we overcome it? Does it define us? - he uncovers the fascinating stories of the men and women who were 'of the violet persuasion', from Charles Darwin to Agatha Christie, and from Tove Jansson to Nick Drake.

In their stories - often both heart-breaking and inspiring - and through the myriad ways scientists and thinkers have tried to explain and cure shyness, Moran finds a hopeful conclusion. To be shy, he decides, is not simply a burden - it is also a gift, a different way of seeing the world that can be both enriching and inspiring.
