What is Ambivert ?
An ‘Ambivert’ is an individual, who displays both introvert and extrovert characteristics. These individuals have the flexibility of changing their traits as per the situation. For example, if we think of a scale with 1 being introverts and 10 being extroverts, then ambiverts would be at 5.
Multiple studies suggest that ambiverts outperform extroverts in jobs that were aimed at extroverts like sales, acting, etc. Similarly, ambiverts would be better at doing traditional introvert jobs too as they have the added advantage of easily interacting with others.
Famous author, Dan Pink, familiarized the world with the idea of ambivert individuals in his book ‘To Sell is Human’.
