We are thrilled to announce that we had the opportunity to speak with the lovely Susan Cain, the author of Quiet: The Power of Introverts this past week. Susan provided some very insightful answers into the differences between extroverts and introverts, and how this dynamic is affecting the way we work, communicate, and live. The conversation will be released today, August 24, at 3 p.m. EST. Susan gave a TED talk this March, speaking about some of her personal experiences of being an introvert and how people respond to it. In our culture, a lot of people do not realize that a third to a half of people are introverts. Furthermore, it is greatly misunderstood. Introversion is largely about how people respond to stimulation and specifically, social stimulation. Extroverts obviously generate a lot of "noise" and stimulation in response to social situations, while introverts digest and observe. In a very aggressive and dominant American culture, you can see how it is easy for there to be a bias towards introverts.
