Susan Cain: The power of introverts

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. [TED.com]

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
http://blogs.psychcentral.com/creative-mind/2011/07/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

The differnce between shyness, introversion, and being an extrovert. A fascinating talk. As an introvert (who isn't shy) I certianly enjoyed Ms. Cain's insight into the differnces. Spoiler alert: Barbra Streisand, says Ms. Cain, is a shy extrovert. Watch and see where you fit into the introversion/extroversion continuium.

Posted this not because they are 'celebrities' but because it demonstrates the uniqueness of the condition and the mindset behind each individual's experience of stage fright.

 

In each case, there are clear signals for why they each experience stage fright and potential avenues that if explored, would help them overcome it.
