When collaboration kills creativity

Quiet. The power of introverts in a world that can’t stop talking. By Susan Cain.
Teamwork and open office spaces are intended to help creativity but the author presents some interesting new research which suggests they are often more of a hindrance.
Introverts prefer to work independently, and solitude can be a catalyst to innovation.
More creative people tend to be introverts, not really sociable or of participative temperament. Yay! I always got marked poorly for participation at school, lol.
Now I know it’s ok to hate brainstorming and find teamwork difficult.
I think I am a creative person, just kinda…dormant at the moment.
