Susan Cain Presents The Power Of Introverts [TED Talk]

TED

This really is a fascinating talk. Society has changed so much thank to technology and now what was seen as geeky or nerdy 15 years ago is now completely mainstream.

I still remember in a past role one of my bosses (who was only in her early 30s) bemoaning new-fangled Facebook’s popularity “the f-ing geeks are taking over!” and just a few months later this self-professed anti geek became its biggest fan. Like I said society and our roles and our perceptions are all changing.

In a culture where being social and outgoing are prized above all else, it can be difficult, even shameful, to be an introvert. But, as Susan Cain argues in this passionate talk, introverts bring extraordinary talents and abilities to the world, and should be encouraged and celebrated.
