Many sales managers believe that extroverts are the best personality types to be in a sales role when, in reality, ambiverts are the most suitable for the position. First, let’s address what an ambivert is- ambiverts are people that fall in between the spectrum of extroverts and introverts. Ambivert people possess traits of both introverts and extroverts.

The qualities that an ambivert person has includes:

1. Listening Skills: A good salesperson or consultant will listen very intently to understand the client’s problems.

2. Enthusiastic Personality: Another trait that a successful salesperson or consultant has is a natural and genuine enthusiasm for the company he or she works for and the products they sell.
