Okay, I’m going to do a little jig away from talking about travel for quick minute in order to recommend this moving, informative and inspiring TED talk I just watched about the beautiful qualities introverts (aka quiet people) have to offer the world. In it, the speaker discusses the ways in which the western world (and the US in particular) discriminate against the quiet, more introspective people among us (which make up, according to a statistic cited in the talk, 1/3 to 1/2 of the US population).
