In our world today, a perfect leader is generally seen as outgoing, talkative and great with people. While these extroverts make good executives, introverts have their strengths as well.

Although extroverts are usually the better speakers, introverts tend to be good at having one-on-one conversations and listening to others’ perspectives. Introverts like to think before they speak, which helps them to take all views into consideration when solving a problem.
