Extroverts who remain introverts while client talks (active listeners!)

According to personality tests, I am an extroverted introvert. I get energy from being around others, but am an internal processor. I have seen true extroverts crash and burn, and introverts drop out due to call paralysis.Β 

I don't think there is once cut and dry personality type that out performs others, rather what soft skills that individual has seems to be the determining factor.Β

Both can do well. I think sales is less stressful for extroverts since introverts are drained by human interaction while extroverts become energized by it.Β

I don’t think one is better than the other.Β 

The key is being able to master the needed skills in your position and executing them well.Β 

Introverts and extroverts can both do that.Β

Introverts have a tendency to listen better and can teach/practice sales skills

You just know when to talk and what to talk. Combo is required.Β

I think omnivert/ambivert. The best of both worlds.
