    Post Introverts run the world - CNN

    http://edition.cnn.com/2012/03/18/opinion/cain-introverts-power/index.html

    Editor's note: Susan Cain is the author of "Quiet: The power of introverts in a world that can't stop talking." A writer who formerly practiced corporate law and worked as a negotiations consultant, Cain spoke at the TED2012 conference in Long Beach, California. TED is a nonprofit organization dedicated to "Ideas worth spreading," which it makes available through talks posted on itswebsite. Follow @susancain on Twitter.(CNN) -- The theory of evolution. The theory of relativity. The Cat in the Hat. All were brought to you by introverts.Our culture is biased against quiet and reserved people, but introverts are responsible for some of humanity's greatest achievements -- from Steve Wozniak's invention of the Apple computer to J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter. And these introverts did what they did not in spite of their temperaments -- but because of them.As the science journalist Winifred Gallagher writes: "The glory of the disposition that stops to consider stimuli rather than rushing to engage with them is its long association with intellectual and artistic achievement. Neither E=mc2 nor Paradise Lost was dashed off by a party animal."Watch an interview with Susan Cain

    that is what i was getting at. if there is an inescapable appropriation that is required in the act of understanding, this brings into question the validity of socionics in describing what is real, and hence stubborn contradictions that continue to plague me.

    This isn't really about introversion in the psychological sense, rather about "smart" people.

    It's about someone finding success despite being born to a well-to-do family and spamming motherfuckers to buy her book.

    "Introverts" have to feel better about themselves somehow.

    But if introverts run the world, who runs the introverts?

    Richard Dawkins (IEE) and Albert Einstein (ILE) are both Ne base in socionics.

    I'm kind of sick of hearing about this book. I also dislike seeing a bunch of ENTx types being considered introverts because they happen to be quiet and smart (but ignoring the fact that they're externally focused).
