The Advantages of Quiet

Susan Cain: Individuals, extroverts included, produce better ideas when they're riffing alone than when they're in a group.

By elucidating introversion's benefits, Cain is inspiring a reexamination of corporate structure and processes, spurring change through the classic public-intellectual approach: by encouraging us to think.

The results could be anything from more private work spaces—open offices make people less productive, she says—to a generation of introverts that understands that solo time isn't just okay but also beneficial.
