“Einstein, Gandhi, Rosa Parks, Van Gogh—all these people were transformative leaders—and all of them were introverts who accomplished what they did because of their quiet temperaments, not in spite of them,” says Susan Cain, author of Quiet. She says, our world depends on the power of introverts.

“In a world that never stops talking, we need to start listening—to quiet, reflective people.”

In this episode of Behind the Brand, Cain talks with Bryan Elliott about her research on introverts and extroverts—the surprising advantages of being an introvert, the myths about what it means to be an introvert or an extrovert, and her advice to both.
