susan cain

all the times i got the message that might introvert behavior was not normal

i made these self-negating choices so reflexively..

it's our loss...
we need people doing what they do best

key to maximize... put yourself in your best zone of stimulation..
schools are geared to extroverts..

many have a serious streak of introversion..

3 calls for action:
1. stop the madness for constant group work (much more freedom, autonomy..)
2. go to the wilderness (be like buddha, have your own revelations, get inside your own head)
3. take a good look at what's inside your suitcase and why it's there (take the things out and grace people with them)

the courage to speak softly..
