    This (as do many of your podcasts) really spoke to my soul. As a self-proclaimed introverted-extrovert I can totally relate with what Susan says about how we are socialized to think and behave a certain way. I took up public speaking from a very young age as it was the best way to get my introverted self a voice – in a world (and schooling system) that isn’t always accommodating to introverts. Thanks Dale for the wonderful series and Susan for sharing your thoughts.

  2. I was super stoked when this showed up on Facebook. I haven’t finished her book yet but I’m a big fan. Thanks for this. Especially thanks for making an effort with introverts Dale. Most extroverts think something is wrong with us. I appreciate it when they take the time to see who we are. Thanks Susan for your work.
