Takers

Takers

Takers are self-focused and only help others strategically, when the benefits to themselves outweigh the personal costs.

In the words of Adam Grant: “Takers have a distinctive signature: they like to get more than they give. They tilt reciprocity in their own favor, putting their own interests ahead of others’ needs."

Givers

On the other hand, givers will help whenever the benefits to others exceed the personal costs.

As Adam Grant explains: “Whereas takers tend to be self-focused, evaluating what other people can offer them, givers are other-focused, paying more attention to what other people need from them.”

Matchers

Finally, matchers strive to preserve an equal balance between giving and getting.

“Matchers operate on the principle of fairness: when they help others, they protect themselves by seeking reciprocity. If you’re a matcher, you believe in tit for tat, and your relationships are governed by even exchanges of favors.”
