Introverts are better ... writers, inventors, musicians, sculptors, etc.
Extroverts are better ... teachers, managers, politicians, comperes, etc.
Even though these are the basic traits that describe a person, they alone do not point towards someone being an introvert or extrovert. There are many finer points that come into play, and then of course, there is a high possibility that an individual is something of both, and falls in the category of being an ambivert. Having said all that, here are a bunch of questions that determine whether you are an extrovert, introvert, or an ambivert.
