I Worry That There Are People Who Are Put In Positions Of Authority

“I worry that there are people who are put in positions of authority because they’re good talkers, but they don’t have good ideas. It’s so easy to confuse schmoozing ability with talent. Someone seems like a good presenter, easy to get along with, and those traits are rewarded. Well, why is that? They’re valuable traits, but we put too much of a premium on presenting and not enough on substance and critical thinking.” ― Susan Cain, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking
