MLK and Rosa Parks: We Need BOTH

Parks and MLKThank you Ms. Parks for being quietly rowdy. Thank you Martin Luther King Jr for swaying a nation with your words. Thank you both for your actions.

I never thought of Martin Luther King Jr as an Extrovert or Rosa Parks as an Introvert. Susan Cain makes a compelling argument for our society’s need for both “types” on the spectrum-One without the other makes true Progress more difficult. Introverts have a tremendous amount to say and much influence to give. And sometimes we need someone Shiny, boisterous and able to sway a crowd to get our point across.
