I saw "The Power of Quiet" video on High Snobette & was moved by the thought of a society that placed balanced responsibility and notoriety on extroverted, charismatic leaders with their quiet, introverted counterparts. Author Susan Cain talks us through the common scenario of sitting in a brainstorming meeting, and going with the opinions of the loudest person in the room. Is that always the right route to take? Cain uses Apple's Steves (Jobs & Wozniak) as a prime example of why we need extroverts and introverts to make the best ideas come to fruition.
