Episode Info

Episode Info:

When I started this podcast, my #1 dream guest was Susan Cain. So, I'm very happy to bring this episode to you today.

Susan's 2012 book, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking was my first introduction to introversion. The book changed my life (and thousands of others worldwide) because it changed how I saw myself.

It was through learning about introversion that I learned about high sensitivity; I wouldn't be typing this to you today without her book as the inception.

More about Susan Cain:

Susan is the co-founder of Quiet Revolution, a site that features advice and stories for introverts and extroverts alike on how to appreciate our quiet sides. She is the author of the bestsellers Quiet Power: The Secret Strengths of Introverts, and Quiet: The Power of Introverts in A World That Can’t Stop Talking, which has been translated into 40 languages and been on the New York Times bestseller list for over four years. Her record-smashing TED talk has been viewed over 15 million times. She is an honors graduate of Princeton and Harvard Law School.

Some of the topics covered in this episode include:

  • What it was like to be a Wall Street lawyer and an introvert
  • If she's an HSP
  • How Susan dealt with the huge popularity of her book and TED talk
  • The difference between HSPs and introverts
  • Her Quiet Leadership Institute
  • The introvert backlash
  • ....and more.
