The classical dilemma, when it comes to personality dimensions and the job requirements is whether being stronger in one or the other trait allows you to perform better. The sociability of an individual is given a lot of weightage in this debate.

There are many individuals that believe introversion is better for a consultant as they would listen more and internalize better to come up with solutions while others feel that extroverts would be able to talk to more employees and be able to get to the root of the issue, which would result in them being better consultants. There is a third group that believes that the sociability of the individual would have no say in the way they perform at their job and so align with the thinking that neither of the traits would make for better consultant.
