Everyone knows that recruiters and HR professionals today are placing a premium on soft skills. In the process, one type of skill is overlooked: social skills. And not just how you behave in social situations, but where you get your energy from. And also what type of environment most appeals to you. Often, the answer boils down to one perception: are you seen as an extrovert versus introvert?
Extroverts Versus Introverts
Extroverts are often enthusiastic, talkative, assertive, and gregarious. While introverts are more reserved or reflective. Both types of social personality are an asset to an employer, but often not in the same roles.
When in the process of deciding your career path, you may want to take some time to perform a little self-analysis to determine if you are an extrovert versus introvert. This simple infographic from OffiveVibe prompts some of the questions you’ll need to ask yourself:
- How do you recharge?
- Do you enjoy group or one-on-one conversations most?
- Do speak or listen more?
- And much more
Knowing yourself and what your capable of is a necessary component of making decisions that are right for you. Take the time to get to know who YOU are. Because when you’re comfortable with yourself, the sky is the limit!
