Susan Cain on “The Power of Introverts”


“The Power of Introverts” is among the most popular of all TED programs. Thus far, it has been viewed 26,291,847 times and I highly recommend it to you.

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.

This talk was presented at an official TED conference, and featured by TED editors on the home page.

Susan Cain is a “quiet revolutionary.”

Our world prizes extroverts, but she makes a case for the contemplative. She’s leading a social revolution that’s showing people that looking inward is a virtue, not a problem.

Here’s a direct link to her thoughtful and thought-provoking program.

I also highly recommend her bestseller, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking, published by Crown (2012). It is available in various versions.
