I’m moderate on extroversion.

In today's workplace, this puts me in the middle regarding this sought-after trait. Introducing myself, meeting different people and being part of a team are OK for me; I'm not perceived as shy. While I do not crave the opportunity to lead meetings or initiate contact with unfamiliar people, I can do it if asked.  My personal network is of average size. Generally, though not always, others can read my emotions and know where I stand. I’ll achieve greatest success in jobs -- such as healthcare, legal work, consumer research and quality control -- that offer a mixture of people-contact and solo activity.
