Black Holes, Beakers, and Books: Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking

Sunday, September 28, 2014 | Other Dates  
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Are you interested in exploring the vast mysteries of the cosmos, understanding human evolutionary history or talking about the long-term future of the planet earth? These topics and more will be discussed in Black Holes, Beakers, and Books, a book club that reads and discusses popular science books published within the last five years.

Join us for a discussion of Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking by Susan Cain.

A self-described introvert introduces us to a diverse spectrum of her peers: people who prefer solitude, listening, and working independently. While a third to half of humans fall into the introvert category, Cain believes that workplaces and schools are created largely for extroverts, which means that society loses out on a great deal of talent, ideas, and energy. She examines the psychology and neuroscience behind introversion and provides guidance for introverts to succeed in a world of extroverts.
