Did you know that introverted leaders often deliver better results than extroverts? That the most spectacularly creative people tend to be introverts? That the most innovative thinking happens alone, and not in teams? One of the central challenges of any business is to bring out the best in its employees. Yet when it comes to introverts--who make up a third to a half of the workforce--our leadership strategy mainly consists of asking them to act like extroverts. This is a serious waste of talent and energy. In an enlightening, relatable, and practical talk, Susan Cain shows us that introverts think and work in ways that are crucial to the survival of today's organizations.

We made this difficult decision for the TED Archive because we believe that a well-moderated conversation allows for better commentary from more people and more viewpoints. Studies show that aggressive and hateful comments silence other commenters and drive them away; unfortunately, YouTube's comment moderation tools are simply not up to the task of allowing us to monitor comments on so many videos at once.

GHC 16 - Susan Cain, Quiet Revolution, and the Power of Introverts

Susan Cain, author of New York Times bestseller Quiet and co-founder of Quiet Revolution shares her story and discusses her efforts to create a world where introverts are celebrated just as much as extroverts. Every personality type and everyone's quiet strength is valid. She also has the funniest joke from the entire celebration!

Quiet | Susan Cain | Talks at Google

At least one-third of the people we know are introverts. They are the ones who prefer listening to speaking, reading to partying; who innovate and create but dislike self-promotion; who favor working on their own over brainstorming in teams. Although they are often labeled quiet, it is to introverts that we owe many of the great contributions to society--from van Gogh's sunflowers to the invention of the personal computer.
Passionately argued, impressively researched, and filled with indelible stories of real people, Quiet shows how dramatically we undervalue introverts, and how much we lose in doing so. Taking the reader on a journey from Dale Carnegie's birthplace to Harvard Business School, from a Tony Robbins seminar to an evangelical megachurch, Susan Cain charts the rise of the Extrovert Ideal in the twentieth century and explores its far-reaching effects. She talks to Asian-American students who feel alienated from the brash, backslapping atmosphere of American schools. She questions the dominant values of American business culture, where forced collaboration can stand in the way of innovation, and where the leadership potential of introverts is often overlooked. And she draws on cutting-edge research in psychology and neuroscience to reveal the surprising differences between extroverts and introverts.
Perhaps most inspiring, she 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. Finally, she offers invaluable advice on everything from how to better negotiate differences in introvert-extrovert relationships to how to empower an introverted child to when it makes sense to be a pretend extrovert.
This extraordinary book has the power to permanently change how we see introverts and, equally important, how introverts see themselves.

Quiet: The Power of Introverts Summary | 5 Practical Ideas | Susan Cain

Quiet: The Power of Introverts Summary | Susan Cain In this book I summarize the difference between being an introvert and extrovert (or ambivert), and how to best utilize your strengths as either an introvert or extravert in modern society.


Quit The Power of Introverts Book:

Determine If You're An Introvert Or An Extrovert

So the best way to tell if you're an introvert or an extrovert is to ask yourself what re-charges you and what drains you.

Don't Confuse Being Introverted With Being Shy

People who are extroverted, but shy are out there. Being shy just mean being afraid of negative judgement. So you can be an extrovert and thrive on interacting with others, and crave that stimulation and not be too drawn to being alone. But if you're afraid of what people might think that could make you shy and inhibit your expression. A great example of this is Barbara Streisand, who is extremely outgoing but suffered from a severe case of strage fright. If you're a true introvert, you will gravitate towards solitude, quiet, alone, and little stimulation. You literally want to just think by yourself.

Play To Your Strengths

So if you're an extrovert, you're going to most likely have no problems thriving in a career, or a hobby that involves people. You want to involve yourself in situations where you will shine. Theatre, politics, speaking, conselling, You can deal with interruptions and a very noisy, bustling environment, you would do well working on wall street, or in sales.

If you're an introvert, you would do well in fields that require focus and concentration. Acedemic, research, scholar, IT, jobs where you are working alone. 90% percent of olympic athletes identify themselves as introverted. Some famous introverts include Bill Gats, Winston Churchill J.K. Rowling. Modern workplaces favour extroverts, but if you're an introvert you are best to seek out a job where you are alone.

Be Aware Of Your Weaknesses

Extroverts are very good at motivating people, injecting that intial energy and push, but they're not very good at getting good performance levels out of the people they are motivating. But they weren't that good at responding to their team member's suggestions.

Introverts are the total opposite, they are not that good at motivating others. They were open the hearing the suggestions of their team members and tweaking their strategy so it was as efficient as possible. Extroverts are rash, they make split decisions that aren't always logical. Emotionally driver. Introverts are logical, thorough, methodical, and they amass a lot of information before making a decision.

So depending on the situation, if a quick decision making is required, extroverts are best. Best if you need careful consideration, introverts are best.

Learn How To Identify What Others Are

So now that you know the main traits of introverts and extroverts, you should be able to observe what others are. You can use this knowledge to your advantage. If you know how someone operates you will be able to better cooperate with them, and get more done. So for example let's say you're in a relationship with an extrovert, knowing that these people thrive on interactions with others, going out, new experiences, stimulation. You'll suggest doing these types of things with them in order to have a successful relationship, because you'll understand that this is what give them energy. Suggest going out to dinner, spending time with them,

Susan Cain on Introversion

The world is full of noise and those that are the loudest are the ones we tend to follow but what about the quiet ones?

Author Susan Cain shines a spotlight on introverts and reveals how over time our society has come to look to extroverts as leaders. Not suggesting that one is better than the other, Susan argues that the world needs an equal space between introverts and extroverts; that an innovative, creative world wouldn't be the same without the two coming together.
