"Hey extroverts; watch and listen to this if you can."

My expectations for Quiet are high, especially after watching this video.  While I haven’t read Susan Cain’s book, it’s definitely on my list.  I watched a video posted on her website and recommend others do the same (introverts, extraverts and ambiverts alike). She does a great job of demonstrating how much current bias against introverts exists (especially in the U.S.). Her examples of bias hit home with many of the experiences I’ve gone through in my professional career. From what she indicates, this bias has been growing for decades.  I'm looking forward to the insight she offers in her book.
