Our world constantly demands that we share and interact with others. But what if you're an introvert? How can you get along in a world like that?

We'll learn about what introversion is and isn't, why introversion matters at work and at home, and I'll cover five lifehacks for introverts trying to survive in a world that values extroversion.

But simply surviving isn't good enough - introverts can do better than that because they're part of this world. With a new understanding of themselves and others, they won't just survive.

They'll thrive!

Originally presented at Ignite! Seattle 19 on February 20, 2013 at Town Hall in Seattle, Washington.

  • LaFemme_AB Asia B, Software Tester, Grad Student, Tree Hugger:) at University of Baltimore This is a very interesting topic! I'm currently reading The Introvert Advantage by Marti Olsen Laney and it sheds more light on the topic and dispels many of the misconceptions/negative connotations associated with introverts:) 1 year ago

  • jcolman Jonathon Colman @jcolman, Content Strategy at Facebook @shabidabidoo Hey Davis, I completely agree and totally understand where you're coming from. I also enjoy 'complete' slide decks that don't require explication from the speaker.

    This presentation was an Ignite! talk, which has a special format: 5 minutes, 20 slides, and the slides auto-advance every 15 seconds.

    So there's not a lot of time to show examples or go into details within the slides themselves, unfortunately. I had to do that while talking.

    We'll have video of the Ignite event posted soon, but in the meantime, check out this post, which has all kinds of great tips for introverts:

  • shabidabidoo Davis Goodman Sorry, I'm not really getting the presentation. I know you want to be minimalistic, but without an example or two or anything even slightly concrete, it just seems like random motivational chanting. 1 year ago
