You most closely resemble a Maven!

Mavens are specialists within a particular field. They love to collect information and pass on their knowledge to others just because of sheer will. You are likely the person to tell a few people about a particular restaurant or hotel you feel strongly about, and maybe you can even get a few of those people to take your advice. A maven is someone who doesn't want to necessarily persuade you, rather educate and help you. Having a loyal group of people that trust in your opinion is critical in starting word of mouth epidemics.

You most closely resemble a Connector!

A connector is someone who knows a large amount of people and often in many different social groups. They know many acquaintances and keep "weak ties" with them throughout the years. Connectors likely still keep in touch with childhood friends. Being able to reach a large amount of different types of people are critical in spreading information from word of mouth epidemics quickly.

You most closely resemble a Salesman!

A salesman is someone who is extremely persuasive and usually has an optimistic attitude. They can even unknowingly pass on their charismatic attitudes to other people when having a conversation. Salesman are capable of "selling" their opinions and advice to others. This is critical in making people want to join a word of mouth epidemic.
