The power of introverts | Susan Cain

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.

InnoTown®2012
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.

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.

Susan Cain: Networking For Introverts

Susan Cain, author of QUIET: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking, believes the power of introverts lies in what many consider their weaknesses. In this video you'll learn key ways from Susan Cain to use introverted traits to your benefit in business and life, and discover how to be fully yourself when networking.

1. Choose Your Business Or Career Wisely. Ask yourself if a job or career will be a good fit for your introverted temperament. Susan Cain suggests choosing a line of work that fits and that you're also passionate about.

2. Make A Quota. Instead of battling with yourself over every social invitation, create a quota system for how often you'll go out and socialize. Once you meet your quota, you can comfortably turn down additional invitations.

3. The Power Of One And Rule Of Thumb For Networking. If you're introverted, reframe networking in a way that works for you. Instead of worrying about working an entire room at a networking event, focus on finding just one kindred spirit you can connect with.

4. The Power Of Partnerships. Find a partner who is a complement to your temperament and skill-set.

5. When It's Time To Fly, Don't Deny. When you're out in the world being social, you'll eventually reach your breaking point where you're reading to go home. Train yourself in graceful ways to exit social events when you're ready to leave.

C'mon over to where the main discussion happens after the episode!

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.

Susan Cain The Power of Introverts

Susan Cain: The Power Of Introverts (via 'Keen On...' on TechCrunch TV)

Susan Cain's book has already, ironically due to the nature of the book, gone viral. It's already hit 17 foreign markets in the world - even after only its first week's release in the U.S.

It was, of course, inevitable. After book after book explaining the importance of being forward, of aggressively networking and noisily self-promoting ourselves, the correction has finally arrived. And it comes in the shape of a stimulating new book by Susan Cain entitled Quiet: The Power of Introverts. So enough with the extroverted ideologues of self-promotion like Gary V, Chris Brogan and Seth Godin. It's Susan Cain time now. Quiet. The hour of the introvert has finally arrived.

We need to restore solitude, Cain told me yesterday when she came into our New York City studio. That's what has been lost in what she calls our culture of personality. There's a bias in our culture against introverts, she told me, and it's playing out in schools and workplaces where everyone is expected to sit and work together. This enforced collectivism, she explained, in which nobody has a room of their own any longer, is creating a socialized, groupthink culture in which we are no longer thinking for ourselves.

So where does the Internet fit into all this? Cain told me that the Internet is both the problem and the solution to the groupthink culture of contemporary life. Online, she says, we are all alone together. And while that is a problem for critics like Sherry Turkle, being alone together on the Internet is, for Susan Cain, a solution to the noisy collectivism of the offline world. Bur rather than Facebook or Twitter, Cain seems to be relying on intimate networks of friends like Path to rebuild the primacy of quiet in our lives.

So is Cain right -- do we need to be saved by the power of introverts?
