Trait Leadership Theory: Do Extroverts Make more Effective Leaders?
Northern Kentucky University
It has long been assumed that one is either born with or without leadership qualities. Trait leadership theory assumes that possessing certain innate characteristics indicates that an individual also possesses good leadership qualities. One such factor is extroversion. In this systematic literature review, trait leadership is explored as it relates to personality psychology and the idea that those with high extroverted tendencies are more likely to become and be better leaders than their counterparts with low levels of extroversion.
