This is an intriguing talk by Susan Cain. Collaboration, team brain storm sessions and the power of groupthink are all important parts of the creative environment, but I know that without time to process, reflect and quiet time to think, they don’t work in the same way for me.

The best description I have heard is that introverts gather their energy by being alone while extroverts gather energy by being around others.

“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. Our world prizes extroverts – but Susan Cain makes a case for the quiet and contemplative.”

i LOVE this ad/mini-doc…Check out the full story over Adweek HERE!
