Exactly. The way written discussions work they allow off time for digesting, making conclusions and thoughtfully composition of answers. content matters. In contrary to that in RL you are repeatedly forced to listen to speedomoronian; or even worse: read its written form: powerpointese.

My husband is as introverted as I am extroverted, and he has found that it is a problem in US business culture to be quiet and reserved for sure. I am interested in this book and will have to keep an eye on it.
As far as I can see the book is balm for your hubbies nerves.
