Introverts have had the short end of the stick for generations. If you don’t speak up at a meeting or you’re not the life of the party, society will tell you you’re a boring person who is setting themselves up for disappointment later in life.
New York Film Academy graduate Daniel Widfeldt Lomas is seeking to change the stereotypes about introverts. He found inspiration from Susan Cain’s book about introversion titled “Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking” and hand-drew and produced the YouTube video “The Power of Introverts.”
The video, which combines a TED-like lecture voice-over and simplistic drawings to make the argument that introverted personalities are not inferior but rather approach challenges differently, is gaining steam on YouTube. So far, the first episode of “The Power of Introverts” has racked up more than one million views.
With the riveting lecture topic and attention-grabbing simple sketches, it’s likely that the second episode, which was just released today and discusses the historical background on introversion, will have just as much viral power.
