  • Yes, introverts can make better leaders.

    Introverts are less likely to take risks. Introverts are thinkers and tend to look at every possible outcome before making a decision. Introverts also don't talk as much, so others ideas are more likely to get heard. Extroverts can sometimes get so excited and caught up in their own idea that they may ignore others. Introverts are often seen as more humble. In Jim Collins book 'Good to Great', he says that good leaders look out the window at others when giving credit for something that went right and look in the mirror when giving credit for something that went wrong. Introverts dont like small talk and make less connections, but the connections they do make are very meaningful and rewarding.
    Introverted leaders: Bill Gates, Abraham Lincoln, Mahatma Gandhi, and Warren Buffett. To name a few.

  • Extroverts make better leaders.

    Extroverts make better leaders. Extroverts by definition are focused on the outer world as opposed to introverts that are focused on their inner selves. Extroverts are much more likely to assume positions of leadership because they are focused on living in the world around them, whereas an introvert would be more likely to keep to themselves and live a life of solitude.

  • The best leaders are both

    Many people think extroverts make good leaders simply because they are social and like being around people. That is not necessarily true. Just because you like to be social and talk does not mean you will be a good leader. The best leaders are the ones who can relate to people and understand everyone's problems. If a leader is both an introvert and extrovert, then they have the ability to listen and motivate.

  • No, extroverts make better leaders.

    I definitely think that extroverts make better leaders than introverts. Extroverts are able to talk to and govern people in a social and public setting. Introverts on the other hand would probably have difficulty trying to manage their ideas and principles to other people. That is why extroverts are better leaders.

  • They unite people.

    Extroverts make better leaders than introverts, because extroverts know how to get a crowd going. An extrovert isn't afraid to approach someone. They are good at pulling people in who need extra attention or encouragement. Introverts are the better task masters, and extroverts get people united to get the job done.

  • Extroverts Get Along With More People

    Extroverts make better leaders simply because they get along with more people. Introverts are more concerned with intellectual pursuits and turn inward. Extroverts like being around other people and revel in the exposure gained by being at the forefront of leadership. Extroverts like being the top of the heap and are born leaders.

Ceretis partibus, the extrovert will be the better leader, if and only if the extrovert can communicate well.
However, management does things right. Leadership does the right thing. An introvert could know what to do better, while the extrovert is clueless, and needs a subordinate to explain things.
And what kind of leadership are we talking? Small group, face-to-face? Over the internet? Too many variables, not enough definitions given to answer.
