Although every project is different, each requires a planned, organized approach. Do you have what it takes to be a project manager? The project management Q&A below, excerpted from 101 Project Management Problems and How to Solve Them, by Tom Kendrick, will help you decide.
What personality type fits best into project management?
There are a large number of models used to describe personalities. One of the most prevalent is the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI).

Introverted project managers may find their projects wandering out of control because they are insufficiently engaged with the people responsible for the work.
