"Everyone shines, given the right lighting." - Susan Cain, award-winning author of Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking.
In a world that seems to reward big talkers over deep thinkers, introversion is often thought of as a negative trait. Introverts are often perceived to be shy or anxious people, which is a misconception. Introverts process new information more thoughtfully than extroverts do, are better listeners and more compassionate leaders, and make genuine connections with others. When harnessed the right way, introversion can be a formidable source of strength that propels one forward in their career.
