29: Listener of the Year, 2006

by Max Leibman

Introversion and extroversion are two points on a spectrum... and there is a lot to be learned by identifying your spot on it, too! Listen as the Priority team offers part one in its series on Susan Cain's Quiet, a work exploring the science and implications of a society that doesn't always recognize the power of introverts.

In this episode, Caitie and Max walk listeners through a self-assessment using the informal quiz Cain provides, offering reflections on their own temperaments and preferences. Max might amend his results to label himself an "angry introvert"; Caitie is still adjusting to the idea that she's not what she once thought she was.

Mystery, intrigue, and cementing the fact that open office plans are silly: let's get quiet! Um... quiet.
