It has taken me years to embrace the fact that I am an introvert—through and through.
It’s a surprisingly hard thing to come to terms with—mainly because society values, rewards, and acknowledges extroverts more willingly.
Those who aren’t introverts have a tough time understanding our solitude, our need for quiet, our dedication to our relationship with ourselves. But it’s about time we acknowledge the value that introverts offer to society—and that’s exactly what Susan Cain argues in her wildly popular TED Talk.
Cain points out the undeniable benefits of introversion when it comes to creativity and innovation. She reminds us that we need to find more ways of accommodating and encouraging the introverts of the world.
Cain’s TED Talk can help us to more fully understand—and even embrace—our introverted identity.
