Connectors and connecting the dots

I stumbled upon an article which defines the notion of connector and what a connector does in a networking-oriented society like ours. A connector is someone who shows genuine willingness in communicating with others and a passion for meeting and knowing new people. More importantly, a connector always adventures beyond his/her comfort zone, constantly being “the new kid in the block”. I personally value the idea of reaching out people and building a network of individuals who share similar interests and ideals, but I am also inclined to cherish solitary activities as a way of finding yourself and reflecting on past experiences. Balance is extremely important, especially when it comes to the debate of quantity versus quality in interpersonal communication.
