#17 Introversion is not shyness. You can be a shy extrovert or an introvert who is not shy. "Don't think of introversion as something that needs to be cured." What about the Western Extroversion Ideal? The omnipresent belief that the ideal self is gregarious, alpha and comfortable in the spotlight” has pitfalls. What about extroverts who claim to be introverts? Discover the power of Quiet personally, professionally and in parenting.   Erase from your vocabulary, "Now, I want to be someone else" and discover the power of quiet. Includes strategies for parents, children, teachers, in the office, at home and personally. What about introverted parenting? What if you have children with two kinds of children (introvert, extrovert)?    How do you best parent them with the chill time or attention needed? Clue: Don't overprotect them, honor who they are. As Susan Cain says on this podcast, "Introverted kids have a longer runway that they have to travel before they take off and fly...you want to be with them on that runway...and they need to know from you that you really love who they are on that runway with them."   Get ready to spend your time the way you like and not the way you think you're 'supposed to.' Stop denying your own reality of how you want to spend your time and step into your True North of what you'd like to be doing if you could.   Richie Norton interviews Susan Cain 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, is in its seventh year on the New York Times best seller list, and was named the #1 best book of the year by Fast Company magazine, which also named Cain one of its Most Creative People in Business. Her record-smashing TED talk has been viewed over 30 million times on TED and YouTube combined, and was named by Bill Gates one of his all-time favorite talks.    LinkedIn named Susan the 6th Top Influencer in the world.
