What Makes Us Extroverts and Introverts?

What Makes Us Extroverts and Introverts? | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

Will you spend Saturday night in a crowded bar, or curled up with a good book? Is your ideal holiday adventure sports with a large group of mates and, or anywhere more sedate destination with a few good friends? Maybe your answers to these questions are clear – you'd love one option and hate another – or maybe you find yourself somewhere between the two extremes. Whatever your answers, the origin of your feelings may lie in how your brain responds to rewards.


We all exist somewhere on the spectrum between extroverts and introverts, and different circumstances can make us feel more one way or the other. Extraverts, a term popularised by psychologist Carl Jung at the beginning of the 20th Century, seem to dominate our world, either because they really are more common, or because they just make most of the noise. (The original spelling of “extravert” is now rarely used generally, but is still used in psychology.) This is so much the case that some have even written guides on how to care for introverts, and nurture their special talents.

The Learning Factor's insight:

Why do some people prefer adventure and the company of others, while others favour being alone? It’s all to do with how your brain processes rewards.

What You Can Learn From the Strategies of Amazon, Apple, and Lego

What You Can Learn From the Strategies of Amazon, Apple, and Lego | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

Position yourself for the future by looking at what stays constant.  

That's how star companies like Amazon, Apple, and Lego consistently leap ahead of competitors, say strategy experts Paul Leinwand and Cesare Mainardi in their new book, Strategy That Works.

The authors say that Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos' November 2012 fireside chat (watch it on YouTube) perfectly explains this strategy. Here's what Bezos said:

I very frequently get the question 'What's gonna change in the next 10 years?'...I almost never get the question 'What's not going to change in the next 10 years?' And I submit to you that that second question is actually the more important of the two. Because you can build a business strategy around the things that are stable in time.

The Learning Factor's insight:

Too many leaders think about what's going to change in the next 10 years, instead of what's not.
