TED: Susan Cain: The power of introverts

Leave a comment

I feel that this is a TED talk worth viewing!


I suggest that we must consider the differing needs of the introverted students we teach!

After viewing you might like to use one of these Thinking prompts to help you reflect


  1. Make a claim about the topic
  2. Identify support for your claim
  3. Ask a question related to your claim


  1. What feelings do you have after experiencing this?
  2. How were you made to feel this way?
  3. What would you like to do with these feelings?

If this TED talk and your reflections on it have whetted your appetite for exploring further I recommend that you read Susan’s book ‘Quiet – The Power of Introverts’. There is an eBook version too. Here!
