In this passionate talk, Susan Cain argues that introverts bring extraordinary talents and abilities to the world, and should be encouraged and celebrated. A third to a half of the population are introverts, and we are all better off when introverts, extroverts, and everyone in between are prized for being who they are and doing what they do best.
.Susan Cain is the "Chief Revolutionary" of the Quiet Revolution -- a growing movement championing introversion, spurred on by her viral 2012 TED Talk which has been viewed more than 20 million times, making it one of the most popular of all time.
Cain is the author of the bestsellers Quiet Power: The Secret Strengths of Introverted Kids, and Quiet: The Power of Introverts in A World That Can't Stop Talking, which is in its seventh year on the New York Times bestseller list, and was named the best book of 2012 by Fast Company.
