An ambivert is someone who falls in the middle of the introvert/extrovert continuum. Ambiverts have a blend of traits from both introverts and extroverts, as well as their own unique strengths.

Extroverts are usually known as the "life of the party," the social butterfly who can't get enough of interaction. These folks have no problem expressing themselves openly and loudly. Introverts, on the other hand, are more low-key. Generally speaking, they prefer a quiet night in alone or with a few close friends rather than going out to a big party. Where extroverts feel energized by socializing with a lot of people, introverts feel drained. If you identify with both personalities, you might be an ambivert.

Have you always struggled with the question, “Are you an introvert or an extrovert”? If so, there’s a good chance you’re an ambivert — someone who is a little of both. Ambiverts are fascinating individuals who can be excellent conversationalists as well as excellent listeners.

Many people assume that extroverts are the best at careers involving sales or public relations, the best leaders and are the most successful at work. That theory has been negated over the years. Adam Grant, an associate professor at Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, analyzed 35 separate studies and found the statistical relationship between extroversion and income was basically zero.
