Cain, Susan. "Introverts Run the World -- Quietly." CNN. Cable News Network, 18 Mar. 2012. Web. 01

May 2017.

In this article and occupying TED Talk, author Susan Cain discusses her book Quiet: The Power

of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking. Cain discusses her own struggle against her

introversion as a young woman before explaining how the world has come to favor extroverts

over introverts.

This article and TED Talk is very focused on arguing that introversion is a wonderful trait that

unfortunately is underappreciated by society. Cain argues that society as a whole should make

more of an effort to give introverts the environment they need to thrive.

This article and TED Talk are extremely helpful to my encomium. I can easily incorporate them

into my website by using them as evidence to back up my argument that introversion is a

amazing personality trait. I can also put the TED Talk on my website so my audience can see

another persons perspective on the same topic.

The humorous nature of these cartoons makes it easier for my audience to connect emotionally

with the thoughts and feelings of introverts.

Roy, Garima. "Jungs Theory of Introvert and Extrovert Personalities." Fractal Enlightenment. Fractal

Enlightenment, 04 Apr. 2017. Web. 01 May 2017.

In this article by Garima Roy, Roy explains psychologist Carl Jungs theory on personalities. The

article focuses mainly on the difference between introversion and extroverts, although touches

briefly on the three other aspects of personality in Jungs theory.

This article does not really take a stance one way or another about whether it is better to be

introvert or extroverted. The main goal of this article appears to be to simply inform its audience

about Jungs theory of personalities.

This article can be easily incorporated into the pages on my website where I talk about what

introversion is and where the term comes from. These webpages help me to establish ethos with

my audience as they show that I did enough research to be a credible author.
