The Wallflower

Wallflowers are the individuals who prefer to be alone rather than in a group setting. Some wallflowers are hard workers, while others can get a little too comfortable in their quiet workspace and lose productivity.

For the most introverted workers in the office, providing a quiet, productive workspace will help raise their output.

The Achiever

Achievers are organized, reliable and consistent in their work performance. Achievers don’t need as much supervision as other work personalities.

They need opportunities for them to advance their goals, encouragement on their opinions during team meetings, and to be pushed with challenging roles and projects.

The Bum

Bums are the workers who initially started out as achievers but somehow fell into a slump.

They may socialize more than they work but tend not to cause any workplace problems due to their low impact.

The Narcissist

Narcissists can be some of the hardest-working members of your team, but they can burn a lot of bridges along the way.

Encourage the narcissists in your office to slowly interact more positively with other team members. Understand that they’re more productive on their own, but remind them that everyone is there for the same goal.

The Energizer

These workers are always coming up with new ideas and extracurricular activities to partake in; unfortunately, their enthusiasm can often distract them from their main job objectives and responsibilities.

Since their mind is always rushing towards innovation and team morale, it’s imperative to keep them in line with their basic job responsibilities, while also encouraging and recognizing their forward-thinking mind.

The Optimist

This worker will likely be social and a great mentor for new employees unfamiliar with the work environment. Optimists might also ignore the reality of a situation and provide a dishonest, fluffed-up outlook.

Consider placing the optimist of your office with individuals who are more cynical or realistic in nature, such as the analyst or the narcissist. Allow them to share their positivity, but remind them of the sometimes-harsh realities of doing business.

The Analyst

Analysts work best in positions that deal with data and metrics. These employees are steady, persistent, and produce quality work without needing a lot of recognition.

They need to be put in positions that are data-driven. Analysts often excel at double-checking and finding flaws, so allow them time to hone in on their accuracy and attention to detail.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
