Power of intorverts

Mrs Moran found an interesting speech (and book) about the power of introverts. Introverts are people who tend to quiet and enjoy doing activities by themselves rather than in big groups.

In contrast, extroverts tend to enjoy social activities and are a bit louder.

We can all sometimes be introverts and extroverts.

Susan Cain, the speaker, thinks that schools aren't very welcoming to introverts.

Are you more of an introvert or an extrovert?

How do you think schools could be a more welcoming place to introverts?


  1. Nikki, Logan, Shavee

    Me Nikki is more of an introvert.
    Me Logan is more of an introvert.
    Me Shavee is an extrovert.

    We all think that they could make a place for introverts.

  2. Hey Miss,

    I think I am more of an introvert than an extrovert and it seems alot of people agree due to what happened on the mat.

    I think schools can be more welcoming to people like me by allowing us the choice to work on our own or together. It can be stressing when you're forced to work in an uncomfortable enviroment.


  3. I think we are all extroverts, reason being we hate doing things on our own! We love doing our things in big groups. And schools should be more welcoming by not forcing them to do the extrovert things! Thanks,
    - Brad, Sarah, Courtney, Jade.

    At times I can be a introvert and a extrovert.

    I think they can make more things where people can work by themselves more.

    Introverts are quiet and they learn more and are generally smarter.

  10. I'm a extrovert but I think sometimes I'm an introvert but to make them welcome we need to reopen the library

    Lachy- I am in between because sometimes I like working by myself but other times with others.
    Michael- Introvert because I usually work by myself.
    Ram- Extrovert because 5 heads is better than 1.

    We could have two options instead of one so one for introverts and one for extroverts.

  12. I think iam more of
    a introvert.
    i think we can make it more welcome by
    putting quite people with quite people
