    Abstract

    Administration is the art of getting tasks done by utilizing the resources and coordinating the people. Administrators give trigger to the administration by coordinating, and directing all parts of an organization by managing the tangible and intangible resources of the organization. The qualities of leadership are therefore a critical determinant of organizational success. The theories of leadership (Trait to Transformational leadership theory) have strived to look into the aspects that make successful leadership. Though the outcomes of each leadership theory are overlapping to certain extent; it has contributed to enhance the wisdom about leadership. This paper looks into the significance of behavioral influence on the bureaucratic functioning and throws light on the two groups of administrators possessing two different dominant natural preferences (extraversion and Introversion) and their contribution to the administrative efficiency through empirical analysis.
