Susan Cain, author of Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking, explains that solitude and a quiet mind are fertile ground for creative thought and inspiration. Yet today’s schools, workplaces and other institutions uphold a bias for extraversion and groupthink. Wherever you fall on the introversion-extroversion continuum, getAbstract suggests that you’ll find Cain’s well-researched, often personal lecture thought provoking.
In this summary, you will learn
- What cultural biases introverts face,
- How these biases throttle innovation and productivity in schools and businesses, and
- What steps will help create a more balanced and functional culture.
