  • Introverts (30-50% of the population)
  • Extroverts (50-70% of the population)

Research has shown this leads to different dominant skill sets.


  • Memory
  • Planning
  • Problem Solving
  • Motor Control
  • Self regulation


  • Processing new information
  • Applying new knowledge quickly
  • Talking more abstractly
  • Risk Taking
