Susan Cain: The power of introverts

Let’s just pretend for a moment that I’m an introvert instead of a person who just don’t like stupid people. I can relate with some of the things Susan Cain says in her talk: I really feel the pressure to be in groups, and socialize, and connect and share with others as much as possible.

I don’t like all her talk, and I think she simplifies some things, for example I don’t believe that something like “freedom from the distortion of group dynamics” exists, but I like her praise of solitude:

”[…] we have known for centuries about the transcendent power of solitude, it’s only recently that we’ve strangely begun tof orget it.”
