Introvert Or Extrovert, Successful Entrepreneurs Share These 5 Traits

Posted on November 15th, 2017 by The Learning Factor

While clear-cut introverts and extroverts may be few and far between–with most people falling somewhere on the “ambiversion” spectrum–there is such a thing as an “entrepreneurial personality,” broadly speaking. That doesn’t mean all successful entrepreneurs are the same, of course. But for all the personality traits they don’t have in common, there are a few core characteristics successful founders share–and some of those traits are more obvious than others.

 

After all, whenever you read about or personally encounter a successful entrepreneur, you’re observing only the surface of where they are in the present moment. These are some of the more decisive internal qualities that drive founders’ success, no matter which qualities they outwardly project.

How to Succeed as an Introverted Leader, According to Science: Just Believe in Yourself

Posted on October 25th, 2017 by The Learning Factor

From a wealth of real-world examples such as Warren Buffett and Bill Gates to a ton of science and expert opinion, there’s no shortage of evidence that introverts can make great leaders.

And according to new research, many introverts may be shying away from leadership positions in which they’d actually excel, because of misplaced fears about their potential and capabilities.

Why These Introverts Succeed In Extroverts’ Jobs | Fast Company

Posted on March 22nd, 2017 by The Learning Factor

When you’re an introvert browsing job listings, you might think something along these lines: Must avoid all sales jobs. Absolutely nothing client-facing. Actually, anything that’ll put me in the spotlight at all is a “no.”

And that’s a totally understandable attitude, as many introverts find themselves drained after hours of interaction with people. It’s natural to want to work where you’ll be most comfortable, and for some, that’s without question a quiet environment with limited face-time (think computer programming, accounting, engineering, or writing).

However, if you’re curious about certain other fields—ones that are considered traditionally extroverted—but have been reluctant to pursue opportunities, take heart. Before you write off that client-facing sales role or people-forward human resources position, you should know that plenty of introverted people thrive in so-called “extroverted” positions.
