How Introverts Can Survive in This Extroverted World

A presentation at Ignite Seattle in in Seattle, WA, USA by Jonathon Colman

Our world constantly demands that we share and interact with others. But what if you’re an introvert? How can you get along in a world like that?

We’ll learn about what introversion is and isn’t, why introversion matters at work and at home, and I’ll cover five lifehacks for introverts trying to survive in a world that values extroversion.

But simply surviving isn’t good enough - introverts can do better than that because they’re part of this world. With a new understanding of themselves and others, they won’t just survive.

They’ll thrive!
