Introversion in a world of Prozac

Peter D Kramer challenged Western societies and the increasing trend to view extraversion as the norm and introversion as problematic. His book 'Listening to Prozac' raised issues about cosmetic pharmacology and the urge to homogenise personalities in the modern world.

Susan Cain gives a TED talk from the perspective of a successful introvert and argues the case for accepting and valuing introversion in the workplace.
