Susan Cain: "Introverted or shy children: giving them support they need"
Susan Cain is a U.S writer and author of the best seller, ‘Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking.’ Her work revolutionized our concept about personality, that argues that modern, Western culture misinterprets and undervalues the skills and traits of introverts.
Introverts are men and women who prefer to listen before talking, work better alone than in teams, and tend to be modest about their strengths and accomplishments. In a world that pays credence to the ideal of the extrovert, the time has come to proclaim the virtues of introverts, virtues that are essential for society to move forward. With this insightful work, Susan Cain expunges numerous biases and sets forth a legitimate and documented tribute to introverts, who tend to be more creative and determined and enjoy a richer, more relaxed inner world.
