    There is often an overt expectation of extraversion in the workplace.

    Extraversion: gain energy from social interaction and external stimuli
    Introversion: gain energy from quiet and solitude

    “The goal is not to be the fake extravert. The goal is to be the authentic introvert.” -Beth Buelow

    Beth mentioned Good to Great* by Jim Collins

    Dave mentioned How to Win Friends and Influence People* by Dale Carnegie

    “Please oh please, don’t confuse enthusiasm with noise.” -Beth Buelow

    Dave mentioned episode #44: Susan Cain on The Power of Introverts

    Beth mentioned some of the principles from Dale Carnegie that relate directly to introverted energy. Carnegie's principles also demonstrate that introverts make great leaders:

    Become genuinely interested in other people.
    Be a good listener. Encourage other people to talk about themselves.
    Let the other person do a great deal of the talking.
    Do not imitate others.

    Beth mentioned How to Stop Worrying and Start Living* by Dale Carnegie

    “Listen contains the same letters as silent.” -Beth Buelow
