Hybrid Introvert/Extrovert

Marc Andreessen, Co-founder, Andreessen Horowitz; inventor of Mosaic, the first popular web browser said in an interview with Fast Company when asked about his active Twitter profile:
I'm sort of a hybrid introvert/extrovert. I'm an introvert when it comes to face-to-face conversations. But something that let's you talk to 83,000 people while you're wearing your boxer shorts and drinking a glass of Scotch? What could be better?
 I'm a similar hybrid introvert/extrovert as well. That's about all I have in common with Marc Andreessen I guess.

This sort of hybrid personality traits are quite common.

Even though the task is the same (communicating with the target audience in the case above), the environment in which it is performed will influence how effective it will be.

It is not enough to just have the right skill sets in the team. It is equally important to create the right environments to have all the team members operate in their respective comfort zones.
