The Power of Introverts: video went viral

I introduced Susan Cain’s enlightening speech and her new book, Quiet, The Power of introverts in a world that can’t stop talking, a few days ago.

It’s a surprise to know that a brilliant artistic video based on this book has been created.  According to TED, the video is created and narrated by Daniel Widfeldt Lomas and animated by Petri Ltajif. The visual production is effective, which communicates Susan Cain’s concepts well. I love the impressive hand-drawn images.

It’s going to be a video series. The artist has completed the first 2 episodes, 6 minutes each.

This first video has gone viral with more than 1 million hits.

The second video

      Dear Shimon,

      In the book, it highlighted the switch of values from The Culture of Character to The Culture of Personality. In the 19th century, the attributes one could work on improving were: citizenship, duty, work, golden deeds, honour, reputation, morals, manners, integrity. However, by 1920, the culture of personality took over, with emphasis of such qualities such as ‘magnetic, fascinating, stunning, attractive, glowing, dominant, forceful, energetic.’ The change of values has had great impact on the society.

      Dear Jamie,

      I totally agree with you. S Cain’s academic research on this topic is absolutely enlightening. I hope it’s going to improve many people’s awareness, and that many people’s life can be improved.
