In the work place personalities

Different office personalities

Do you know what is your Office Personality?

An office personality is the key in the working place, and unique personalities can affect your team in different ways.

Team members need inspiration and engagement in the office.

Managing such personalities causes mood clashes.

Understanding what draws the team to proper planning that leads to success and productivity.

The working environment therefore becomes a worthy and happy place to work in and around colleagues.

In taking a step toward recognizing personalities you require more knowledge of the personality types.

When judging the team show ambition and be determined with an organized plan.

The schedules and details of deadlines must be thoroughly encountered.

· Be the judge in your office personality.

You acquire an open mind and the employees in the working place need to show a good response to situations.

Be able to adapt and make the unpredictable decisions.

· In other words be the one who perceives in the work place.

When you perceive you are aware of your events going in the work place or around you.

To be the extrovert you need to work hand in hand with your employees.

· The opposite to the Extrovert is the Introvert.

Office personality as an introvert is the one who thinks on their own.

The introvert in the office is better of working alone an independent way.

· Tough thinkers are objective.

Such individuals think a lot.

They tend to research in detail and knowledge is power in their office personalities.

The warm type of office personality types are those with a warm feeling.

These individuals break into the facts, and have different views on their facts.

The feeling personality types are supportive and distinguished..

· What do you look for in Office Personalities?

The Talker office personality would use up your time and not even think of self-control.

There is no stopping a Talker.

The individual is negative and is not a good planner.

The Talker is not aware of the events going on in their workplace.

Some office personalities can scare you.

Who is a Micro-manager?

A worst type of boss you can have in this category.

In trying to put up with this office personality is a tough one.

The Micro-manager interrupts your time while trying to work on the project.

You don't have a say in what you do.It can be frustrating to work with this type of office personality.

A painful personality type to work with is the overly-committed worker.

An individual who will make you feel negative about your work.

They draw attention to work you don't need on your plate and with no accomplishment from their side.

The type who fears your chances are more than that of their in achieving a promotion is the one going out the door.

The one is about to be fired from their position.

You don't need to grow attached to such individuals.

A person who shows no interest in the wok place instead chooses not to follow rules is not worth of your time.

This person is not a good influence on you. He or she breaks the terms and conditions of their working agreement.

· Nobody is perfect in any office personality.

Gossip in the office can tear you down.

You can be put down through gossip anytime in the working place.

· The future leaders in the working place often choose to talk down on other colleagues known as the Fast Tracker.

Ever heard of the Brown Noser?

I knew a few of those personality types in my past job.

What about those who suck up to their bosses?

When this occurs the Brown Noser sticks to the one in the above in title, and looks down on other colleagues. I worked with people who behaved in this way and couldn't cope with that behavior.

A type of personality that neglects others in the workplace.

You could learn from their behaviors.

Office personalities with no intentions of attempting work activities.

This person is away from the office but gets the credit for all the work.

The type that is part holding a company when they do attend meetings and lunches.

Everyone in the team should deliver their share.

There is some value in what they do but is not a colleague to you in this manner.

· Don't forget about the personality types such as:


The talkative or the chatterbox types who don’t mind their own affairs.

The complainers who constantly have a word about work or colleagues.

The other office personality style is the direct speaker.

The one who is thoroughly organized with files and needs to work independently.

In such personalities they are direct in their orders given to you.

· For example: the direct speaker speaks in what you must do.

Opinions of the direct speaker are to the point but their listening skills are poor.

Often the direct speaker makes quick decisions.

· The Spirited office personality type has an untidy desk.

Their style in learning is associated with groups.

They talk more than they actually do their jobs.

A lot of exaggeration involved in their conversations.

A Considerate personality type, have their own agendas and work in teams. The idea in taking on new projects is not on their list.

Considerate personalities do offer help with their low-toned voices.

They have good listening skills and take part in frequent small talk.

A Systematic personality style is one with a tidy desk.

Such individuals think of their own and work independently.

They meet a deadline and are precise in their conversations.

There is not much small talk with Systematic individuals.

Office people think they have easy going personalities, but getting on with colleagues can be a challenging task in the office.

On some mornings you may not want to stop by at the office and to see those sour faces.

Working from home just feels easier.

Office personality types are unique.

The way you choose to cope with such individuals is entirely up to your judgment.

Overseeing the issues in the workplace can be productive and creative.

Sometimes such tasks can be impossible to achieve.

Understanding others in the workplace acquires motivation to survive a happy working environment.

Communication can send wrong messages to colleagues.

Be focused on the project and reach that goal.

You are at the office to do your share of work.

Lying out to your colleagues is wrong and selfish.

The decisions made need all your attention.

The Enthusiastic adventurer seeks their goals.

They choose to be that way and achieve their goals with no hesitation.

Strong outgoing personalities have creative personalities.

When the pressure rises in the office place these personality types fall apart.

They are optimistic and thrive for success and do inspire others in a team.

Office workers need to be in control when making decisions, and in conversations.

Certain office personalities are irritable, unfriendly, can be arrogant, and approach their daily activities with what prevails.

The types that are flexible, sometimes slower, require routine and focus in what want to achieve.

In order to make decisions on the spur of the moment, and to not have conflict in their decisions. To be with who are worth having by your side is key to a good working relationship.

When working in the office think of the reason for you being in that place.

What would you call a good working personality?

Maintain a professional working relationship to avoid any mishaps concerning your job.

      Wonderful analysis of the office. I worked in a marvelous office for four years where we all helped each other get the work done, and there was very little backstabbing. I think part of the key to success was that we had a large table in the middle of the room, surrounded by our cubicles, where we would eat lunch together. I think this helped to gel our feeling of commitment to the team. We would also use our lunchtimes as informal planning and strategy sessions. Great hub!

      I share an office with my partner and I cannot really decide what office personality I fall under. We are both our own boss but work well together when we need to engage in a project, but mostly we have our own schedules and take time out together.

      "Working from home just feels easier." That's true for me right now, after being out in the traditional workforce for so long. You covered much of what goes on.
