Social?
Social
The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people, and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.

LinkedIn opened its brand new new, state-of-the-art 17,650 sq m Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) HQ at Wilton Place in Dublin today. An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and Tánaiste Frances Fitzgerald officiated at the launch event.
