Susan Cain asks the question, "What is it that Rosa Parks, Gandhi, and Eleanor Roosevelt all had in common?" Her response is, all three were introverts.
Ms. Cain makes the case that being an introvert is good and while we seem to cherish the extrovert in our society, it is actually the introvert who is "capable of great love and great achievement..."
We, thoroughly, enjoyed this "TED - Ideas worth spreading" talk and know you will, as well. Ms. Cain states her case with stories, humor and warmth.
