The novel Quite, written by Susan Cain, topic strained on people either being extroverts, introverts or embitters. The book discuses what the advantages and disadvantages are to to having that certain type of personality. In the Novel The Glass Castle Jennet, the main character was an ambient. She always spoke what was on her mind and was very outgoing. Although she was outgoing and unafraid to speak her mind she was also quite and observant until she was aware of the people and area he was surrounded by.
Through out Jennet’s life her family was constantly moving from place to place. Her father claiming that the federal government was after him. Therefore she was regularly changing her surrounding and the people who she interacted with. Because Jennet was an ambient she often played with her younger brother or older sister instead of other children, unless they showed interest in her or vise-versa. This was both an advantage and disadvantage. If Jennet was more extroverted she would robbery would have had a larger and close group of friends.
By making a larger and closer group of friends it would have made it difficult for her to move to another place. As Jennet grew older she realized her father was taking advantage of her and her Brother and sisters. He was stole that the children themselves earned and used for his serious drinking problem. He would take the children to the bar with him as a distraction so he could win a sufficient amount Of money by gambling. Since Jennet was an imbiber she would at times try to address her father about these issues, but never pushing it too far.
This was a disadvantage to her personality trait of an ambient. If Jennet had been more extroverted she could have really shown her father that what he was doing was wrong and it had to stop. But because of the fact that she ambient she was able to tell him but not really come out and saw I hate this and what you are doing to me, your child and your other children as well. The Glass Castle was a very dramatic story.
