Quiet: Post #6--Soft Power

Soft Power: “In a gentle way, you can shake the world”—Mahatma Gandhi. Parents are leaving Cupertino, California, because Asian kids are outstudying and outperforming the other children. These parents feel that their kids can’t compete in a world that values learning over athletics. Introverts thrive in a learning environment but extroverts suffer. Asian kids value humility, altruism, honesty and hard work; typical American kids value cheerfulness, sociability, and enthusiasm. Free Trait Theory says that learning to act into the situation can be socially advantageous to introverts.
