I have just today been introduced to the work of author Susan Cain, surrounding her 2012 New York Times bestselling book titled Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking. And I find myself keenly and inevitably drawn to it, as I identify so completely with the type of person she describes.
You may well already know of her work, but in any event let me draw your attention to two things (in addition to her book itself). First, there’s her 19-minute TED talk, which is well worth the time, and which was included in Bill Gates’ list of his favorite TED talks:
And then after hearing that, I suggest you’d find Manifesto (subtitled “16 Things I Believe”) a thought-provoking follow up: Manifesto: The Power of Introverts
Introverts of the World, Unite!
No, wait… that won’t work.
Okay, I’m going back to my books now.
