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.

Susan Cain: Educating Introverts

Susan Cain, author of Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking and 2017 NAIS Annual Conference speaker, discusses thinking differently about temperament in a classroom setting and making space for introverts as well as extroverts.

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.

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.

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,
