Susan Cain Interview | Social Anxiety, Shyness and Introversion by stevelight published on 2013/06/07 12:08:31 +0000 Susan was always the quieter type, preferring reading books and spending time alone. Then went into corporate law for 7 years and since has published a book about the Power of Introverts and has performed a TED talk on the subject. Susan's bio from her website: "Before I became a writer, I practiced corporate law for seven years, representing clients like JP Morgan and General Electric, and then worked as a negotiations consultant, training all kinds of people, from hedge fund managers to TV producers to college students negotiating their first salaries. My clients have included Merrill Lynch, Shearman & Sterling, One Hundred Women in Hedge Funds, and many more. I went to Princeton University and Harvard Law School. From all this you might guess that I’m a hardcore, wonderfully self-confident, pound-the-table kind of person, when in fact I’m just the opposite. I prefer listening to talking, reading to socializing, and cozy chats to group settings. I like to think before I speak (softly). " The aim of this interview is to inspire people who may have low-self esteem or similar issues such as social anxiety, and enable you all to move towards confidence and being happy in life.
