4 Surefire Signs You’re an Ambivert
Are you an introvert or an extrovert? If you’ve ever taken the famed Myers-Briggs personality test for your career but identified equally with multiple sides then you could fall into a gray zone. It’s totally possible to be a people person who basks in the glory of alone time too. Ambiverts, people who embody the mix of the two best-known personality types (introverts and extroverts), have the amazing ability to relish social situations AND solitary time. That strength makes ambiverts a great fit for cool careers that require top-notch people skills and incredible adaptability.
In fact, a study published in the journal Psychological Science showed that the social and emotional flexibility of ambiverts made them superior salespeople. The study found that employees with the highest revenue per hour — an average of $208 compared with $138 for the full sample — were ambiverts who had a personality test score exactly between extroversion and introversion.
So how can you tell if you’re an ambivert? See if the following four traits ring true for you.
