In eposide #14, Bratton Deloach and Belinda Blue return to discuss Susan Cain's monograph, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking.  By the early 1900s the United States was well on its way to becoming an industrial society and with this change a culture of personality was emerging. 


The new economy called for a new kind of person—a salesman, a social operator or a doer.  Being bold and entertaining was now part of the status quo, and in 1921 Carl Jung popularized the terms extrovert and introvert to help describe new way of thinking about personality types. 


Essentially, being introverted had become a liability for the roughly 40% of the population in America.  Though, in large part, this culture still exists today, Cain reminds us of the values, contributions and nature of introverts in a world that cannot stop talking.
