Susan Cain: The power of introverts

Susan Cain: The power of introverts | Developing Creativity | Scoop.it

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.

Susan Cain notes Bill Gates is an introvert, but not shy, and Barbra Streisand, who famously suffers from stage fright, is a shy extrovert. Cain notes, “Shyness and introversion are not the same thing. Shyness is the fear of negative judgment, and introversion is a preference for quiet, minimally stimulating environments. - From my post Creative Introverts

In her NYTimes article, Cain writes, "Solitude is out of fashion. Our companies, our schools and our culture are in thrall to an idea I call the New Groupthink, which holds that creativity and achievement come from an oddly gregarious place…But there’s a problem with this view. Research strongly suggests that people are more creative when they enjoy privacy and freedom from interruption." -From my post Developing Creativity in Solitude

Quietness and Introversion

Quietness and Introversion | Developing Creativity | Scoop.it

It’s not unusual for me to hear from my coaching clients that one of their problems is that they need to speak up more and to think on their feet. ...I ask my clients how they benefit from being quiet in meetings and the advantage of not being so outgoing. When they reply easily and with energy (and usually with a look of relief on their faces) it reveals that their quietness is their strength. They don’t have a problem; the people around them do.
