“Quiet” is having a moment. The Internet brought together the cozy, homebody types for a big party that we all have alone, in our own homes. Susan Cain’s book is still the number one best seller in behavioral psychology on Amazon. It’s not as though all of this quiet burst on to the scene recently. But for some reason, we are all finally declaring it. We’re saying without any timidity that it feels pretty damn good to be quiet.
And it feels pretty damn good to be kind, too. Not to be confused with in-your-face niceness or being overly sweet, kindness is sincere empathy and doing things for others without asking for recognition. Kindness and honesty are not mutually exclusive. Kindness can have a dirty mouth but a warm smile.
The Quiet Kind is a name that honors both traits, but comes together to mean something greater. It is also about finding your niche as the Quiet Kind of person.
Being quiet doesn’t have to mean that you are always silent. You may be the chattiest friend in your circle, but you love hiking alone. You may have an eye for subtle details in design. You may prefer simple, classic clothing to any trends at the mall. You may be the kind of person who can boil down a whole, lengthy debate into one simple sentence.
However you find your quiet, I hope you can find your kind here. Welcome to The Quiet Kind.
