I know it’s not a perfect statement and I’m sure I could poke holes in the research method, but I agree with the results. I’ve always admired and wanted to emulate the great leaders that were like me but much more extroverted. If you look at the blue group, I sit in the INTJ bar. If I could change just one letter, the I (introvert) to an E (extrovert), my earning power would be much, much higher.
This makes sense in the world of high-tech and other business-driven arenas, as you need to be an extroverted rationalist to stay one step ahead of the competition and to win people over face-to-face. It’s that old adage about business deals being done on the golf course, over drinks, and other social settings. Everyone likes to make a deal with an extrovert.
I’ve sought out extroverts as friends, business partners, and spouse because I have a strong desire to be more extroverted. I just never realized how much it was worth!
