Does Solitude Enhance Creativity? A Critique of Susan Cain's Attack on Collaboration
I've just read a New York Times article by Susan Cain, author of the forthcoming book Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking. It's the frustrated cry of a true introvert. Cain is clearly tired of everyone touting the benefits of collaboration; some people, herself included, just want to be left alone. And, she argues, those are the people who really come up with all of the great ideas.
