I've updated the psychological movies section of the All About Psychology website which was created following a vote by over 2000 people. See following link.
At least one-third of the people we know are introverts. They are the ones who prefer listening to speaking; who innovate and create but dislike self-promotion; who favor working on their own over working in teams. It is to introverts - Rosa Parks, Chopin, Dr. Seuss, Steve Wozniak - that we owe many of the great contributions to society.
In Quiet, Susan Cain argues that we dramatically undervalue introverts and shows how much we lose in doing so. She charts the rise of the Extrovert Ideal throughout the twentieth century and explores how deeply it has come to permeate our culture. She also introduces us to successful introverts - from a witty, high-octane public speaker who recharges in solitude after his talks, to a record-breaking salesman who quietly taps into the power of questions.
Passionately argued, superbly researched, and filled with indelible stories of real people, Quiet has the power to permanently change how we see introverts and, equally important, how they see themselves.

See following link to read a comprehensive full-text, open-access journal article by Aldert Vrij, Par Anders Granhag & Stephen Porter which discusses some of the common misconceptions about lying (for example, the belief that people telling lies are more nervous), reviews the shortcomings of commonly used lie-detection techniques, and presents new empirically supported methods for recognizing lies with greater accuracy.
The initiative to make historically important psychology publications widely available on Kindle is going from strength to strength. Recent additions to the collection include:
"Transmission of Aggression Through Imitation of Aggressive Models." More commonly known as "The Bobo Doll Experiment," was the first study to explore the impact of televised violence on children. This groundbreaking study by Albert Bandura is one of the most famous psychology studies of all time.
