As many of you may know, Marcella and I love to talk about our varying yet similar personalities -- how can we both be Aries and yet so different?! -- so it should come as no surprise that I wanted to dive in deeper with her to see where she thought she falls on the personality spectrum.

Are we introverts, extroverts or ambiverts? What do the personality types even mean? And how do they relate to our work productivity?

After doing research and taking way too many online personality tests, we both confirmed that we were indeed ambiverts -- along with 68% of the population

The more I researched, the more fascinated I became with how our personality types influence our work.

For example:

  • Ambiverts make really great sales people because of their ability to adapt and relate to both the boisterous extroverts and thoughtful introverts.
  • Open office floor plans can be a detriment for introverts but perfect for extroverts. 
  • Extroverts excel at being able to jump back and forth between different meetings or tasks but can fail to set boundaries and avoid burnout

Psychologist Adam Grant says "To work well with other people, you need to understand their personalities and they need to understand yours."

This is so true whether you're trying to work with your colleagues or your clients.

Join Marcella and I as we discuss how the three different personality types can be more productive by leaning into their strengths and overcoming their weaknesses.
