Speaking 1 Topic: Outgoing or introverted to succeed in business?

Some people believe that if you want to succeed in business, being outgoing and friendly is very important. Others believe that introverted people too have established successful businesses. What do you think?

In the 15 seconds I have for note-taking, here’s what I will jot down:

  1. OK to be introverted
  2. 25% to 50% of the world is introverted
  3. Introverts have established successful businesses
  4. Elon Mulk, Warren Buffett, J K Rowling

Here’s my detailed response:

I certainly believe that it is not important to be extroverted to be successful in business. First, research shows that about 25% to almost 50% of the world’s population is introverted. I believe that it’s quite unnatural to expect a drastic personality change in such a large section of society. Also, there are several entrepreneurs who are introverted and have also been extraordinarily successful. I have personally been inspired by Elon Musk, Warren Buffett, J K Rowling, and Bill Gates. These personalities are not known for their social skills or outgoing nature. In fact, they are known for being introverted. However, they have used their inherent strengths to create large businesses and influence the thoughts and actions of entire generations.
