Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking

Susan Cain’s book has the power to permanently change how we see introverts and, equally important, how introverts see themselves.
At least one-third of the people we know are introverts. They are the ones who prefer listening to speaking, reading to partying; who innovate and create but dislike self-promotion; who favor working on their own over brainstorming in teams. Although they are often labeled "quiet," it is to introverts that we owe many of the great contributions to society--from van Gogh’s sunflowers to the invention of the personal computer.

Some guiding questions for our discussion:
- As an introvert, can you relate to the findings and ideas presented?
- As an extravert, what new insights did you have about your introvert friends or colleagues?
- How can we use the power of introverts in the business world?
- What differences regarding introverts and extraverts do we experience from an intercultural perspective?
