Introverts make Batter Leaders

Introverts Are Better Leaders than Extroverts

Think Introverts are shy, anxious and won’t amount to anything in this competitive world? Think again! In Geoffrey James’s article, he quotes the findings of The International Journal of Multidisciplinary Research and Development stating that in fact, Introverts are Better Leaders than Extroverts. Why?:

        • They think before they speak
        • Are better listeners
        • Deeper thinkers
        • Prefer writing to talking
        • And are calmer in a crisis

 

An Impressive List

According to the Cambridge English Dictionary, an Introvert is someone who is shy, quiet and prefers to spend time alone rather than being with other people.  Vocabulary.com goes further to describe an Introvert as a person who tends to turn inward mentally and feels more energized by time alone. 

John Rampton’s impressive list of 23 of The Most Amazingly Successful Introverts in history should make us all think twice about the quiet person in the room, at the business meeting or holiday function. You never know who may be seated beside you!

        1. Albert Einstein
        2. Rosa Parks
        3. Bill Gates
        4. Steven Spielberg
        5. Sir Isaac Newton
        6. Eleanor Roosevelt
        7. Mark Zuckerberg
