RSA Shorts – The Power of Quiet

A great little video narrated by Susan Cain, and featuring whimsical illustrations by Molly Crabapple, which extols the often overlooked value of introverts, and the importance of partnerships between them and their louder cousins the extroverts.

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.

As an introvert myself, I love that we’re finally getting some recognition for what we bring to the table. Moreover, that people like me are realizing that it’s okay to yourself.
