Jobs for Extroverts

By February 14, 2014

Follow me on:

What is an extrovert? Is it a person who's the life of the party? Someone who is always surrounded by people? A loudmouth? Actually, an extrovert is an individual who gets energy from other people or outside experiences. Compare him or her to an introvert, whose motivation is internally based. Introverts and extroverts are sort of opposite sides of the coin, although they aren't entirely opposites because we all have a little bit of extrovert and introvert in us, although we each favor one way of energizing over the other.

Jobs that allow one to take advantage of his or her preference for extroversion abound. They may involve working alongside others in a team atmosphere or working one-on-one with people. A clinical psychologist, for example, spends most of his or her day in therapy sessions with clients. Project managers interact with other people who are involved on the same construction jobs. Take a look at some other jobs for extroverts.
