This beautiful short film, produced by the RSA, features the artwork of Molly Crabapple, with the voice of Susan Cain in the background.
I find it particularly interesting, because it shows that the most successful partnerships are often where introverts and extroverts work together. For example, Steve Wozniak (introvert) and Steve Jobs (extrovert) made Apple what it is today – and without either one of them, Apple would probably not have been so successful.
I am only too aware that extroverts possess abilities that I will never have, or which would cause me to feel exhausted if I forced myself into them. I’m looking forward to exploring this aspect in more depth, interviewing introverts who collaborate with extroverts, to see just what makes the pairing work so well.
