Best Careers for Extroverts

If you prefer to spend time with other people rather than be by yourself, and work with other people than work alone, then you are probably an extrovert. Extroverted people are motivated and energized by other people. Extroverts tend to think as they speak, unlike introverts who are far more likely to think before they speak. Concepts just don't seem real to an extrovert unless they can talk about them; reflecting on them isn't enough.

As an extrovert, you are better off choosing an occupation in which you could work with other people. That may mean being part of a team or working one-on-one with clients.
