Connectors

What are the character traits of connectors?

1. "They are people whom all of us can reach in only a few steps because, for one reason or another, they manage to occupy many different worlds and subcultures and niches." (48.)

2. "But in the case of connectors, their ability to span many different worlds is a function of something intrinsic to their personality, some combination of curiosity, self confidence, sociability, and energy." (49.)

Who are the key examples of connectors?
