So if there's no such thing as learning styles, why is a talk about introverts an EDUCAUSE keynote? "Susan Cain's keynote on the often-untapped potential of introverts was particularly relevant to an IT crowd that, when asked to raise hands, was roughly split 70/30 on introverts and extroverts." Interestingly, a survey of teachers will give almost the opposite result. It turns out there are differences between people, and some of them can classify us in some interesting, albeit superficial, ways.
