Forbes reported on new research by James Lemoine, that challenges the notion that extroverts have an advantage when it comes to being seen as leadership material. “People with superior communication skills have a leadership advantage,” says Lemoine. “But no, it’s not extroversion that’s important since extroverts aren’t necessarily any better at interpersonal communication than introverts or ambiverts.”
