In a culture where being social and outgoing are prized above all else, it can be difficult, even shameful, to be an introvert. But, as Susan Cain argues in this passionate talk, introverts bring extraordinary talents and abilities to the world, and should be encouraged and celebrated.

The TED Talks channel features the best talks and performances from the TED Conference, where the world's leading thinkers and doers give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes (or less).

    As an introvert I can't really connect to the hive mind mentality of extroverts, my solution to this is to get creative, when I am creative I lead or fit in naturally without having to tap into the hive mind.

    My wife is an introvert and I'm an extrovert. I've counseled many couples about to marry, using the Myers-Briggs test, and all were different in their temperament except one couple who were the same. They eventually decided not to marry. Is your partner the same or different from your regarding introversion/extroversion?

    When I was a child, I thought I was stupid because I didn't understand when a teacher was standing before me and worst when I was being taught by other students but I also realized that wasn't true when I found out it was 1000 times easier to understand when I read the notes or books without a teacher explaining to me. I guess that's part of what introversion is.

    There is a lot of prejudice that you need to be outgoing in order to adapt and live better in society as a member of society. The speaker explains that such prejudice is wrong and that being "shameful" and "introverted" is different, and introverts also show off their talents with extraordinary abilities in society, and make great contributions to society. Society needs an unbiased look to show one's maximum abilities according to individual tendencies, rather than pressuring introverts to be active.

    I'm an introvert and was a teacher. The kogan method being pushed is all about group work and socialising the kids. It is important but yea You need individual work also and yes I've seen the annoyance of dominant but poorly thought out studentd ideas on the group. I used to just stay quiet, though I knew they were wrong and I was right. They take our quietness to mean we know nothing and the shy persona means even when I'm right on the money they don't believe me till they hear it somewhere else.

    I love that her inner thought, belief and character naturally came out through her talk, and the speaker and each audience seem to be more connected deeply and heartfully one by one not just between the group of audience and the speaker, because of introverted trait of herself. Her humour is also natural, and genuinly touches audience‘ hearts!😃

    I don't know if extroverts love to be alone listening to their thoughts, feeling their body and grasping visions that are reflected in the mind, likewise I don't know if introverts like to communicate their ideas, their inner world and their creativity in public .

    Less effort for teachers if they grade fewer works and assign projects to groups instead of individuals. Group projects are needed to cultivate teamwork, leadership and responsibility. But individual work is just as important for each one to shine and develop one’s unique abilities.

    I feel special and seen. Thank you so much for making me, and everyone else watching this, feel needed, and teaching us that there is no wrong in being ourselves!
    Extroverts work best with others, thru beautiful conversations and interaction. But introverts are just as efficient and creative, we just do it in a different way, thru solitude and peace of mind.
    And anyway, why the labels? We're all humans after all. Love yourself, love myself, peace 💜💛💗

    Like how she talked about introverts (I’m one of them) without having to resort to putting down extroverts… only throwing some subtle shade here and there. And while she states that ambiverts have “the best of all worlds,” never does she say that extroverts need to quiet down or that introverts need to be more gregarious so that everyone can meet in the middle.
    For her, it’s all about cultivating a more empathetic and inclusive culture that acknowledges and accepts both the strengths and weaknesses of each individual. Yes, she’s mostly being an advocate for introverts, but at the very end she also urges and empowers them to open up once in a while.

    I JUST >LOVE< BEING BY MYSELF. And yes I had the best grades of my school :V
    But jokes aside, being alone on my own, and quite when aorund people, gave me the hability to REALLY LISTEN. I used to think I was terrible in advice and then I discovered I'm very good at it because I fucking listen. I took good grades at class because I was listening. An also, yes, I do talk when I think I must, when I have things to contribute or I don't agree with a thing. Watching this video had make things so clear... I hate when people force me to go out n a group when Im not in the mood, or talk to people if I have nothing to say. People talk too much, people always wnat to be right, always want YOU to listen to them but they dont wanna listen you. Anyway, THANK YOU FOR THIS TALK.

    The first day of class at 34 two days ago I was picked out first to speak about my essay, I fu*ked up. I was outta breath and had tunnel vision on nothing, it was embarrassing. I’m about to head into class, take this as a challenge and speak again 😨

    i don't extroverts but when there's a. group assignments/activkties on school and the leader is an extrovert, they just tend to go off on their own choice and won't even ask about their groupmates' opinion and knowing that i'm an introvert, i'll just go with everything they'd decide on and just keep my words to myself

    I was rather like an extrovert before I moved to the UK, but living here, going through numerous language barriers and cultural differences transformed me into an introvert. I can guarantee anyone that environment can change your personality over a long period of time.

    I know yo u are trying to reach out to extroverts, who have a hard time understanding us. Thank you for the effort. It is extremely difficult.

    I can't tell how guilty I felt throughout most of my life for being a problem case. Being shamed mostly by my family was the worst of it

    The feels when you have tried showing people what's in your backpack but no one is interested.

    I'm crazy about rock, but I had never understand why Fred Mercury sang things without mean (eo, oaio) and I had never understand why people were so happy answering Fred with things without mean!

      I think he's just using his vocal range to express his music, just as any other instrument does.
