There’s no good in being just an introvert or an extrovert. You have to be both in order to be successful.
An ambivert is someone who can think in silence and express themselves when needed. The ability to toggle between two different states of mind is like being able to dribble and shoot with both left and right hands. These skills make you more versatile.
You’re always going to lean one way more than the other. President Obama is an introvert in an extrovert’s position. He’s more inclined to sit and think in silence than talk on stage. But he knows that being social and establishing relationships is why he’s the President.
We’re all born with innate behaviors that lead to common misperceptions. The introvert may be shy but have the strongest will in the room. The extrovert may be loud and expressive but hiding many things inside. Both traits are nonetheless essential.
