If you’re like me, you’re approaching the finish line of a very full week. As you contemplate the break ahead, are you keen to connect with others, or craving a bit of quiet and solitude?
Reading an email from one of the Real Careers alumni today got me thinking about all the networking that is implicit in many of our careers, let alone in conferences or networking events we attend. This particular admin. professional was one of thousands who descended upon London this week for office* 2015, a major conference that’s one of many held to celebrate that region’s National PA Day.
Her comments got me thinking about how such events are nirvana for extroverts, who are likely to feed off the energy associated with high adrenaline events, or with other business functions and networking opportunities.
On the other hand, I know introverts who build up for such meetings or events and for whom, no matter how wonderfully matters unfold, a bit of cherished quiet or solitude once the fuss is all over is just what the doctor ordered.
Then we have ambiverts. Ami-whats? You’ve not yet run across the term?
In a nutshell, ambiverts are said to have a balance of both extrovert and introvert characteristics in their personalities. You can read more about perceptions of ambiverts, extroverts and introverts by clicking here to read an article I wrote on the topic but, for this weekend’s poll, I have a single question:
Do you consider yourself an ambivert, an extrovert, or an introvert?
