Lifehacker re-blogged an article about working more efficiently by identifying your unique working style that resonated with me. Here’s my take on the four styles that they talk about in a nifty table:
|Doer||Bias towards doing something and focused on the task at hand.||Doesn’t communicate as well as they should.|
|Leader||Inspire others to do things.||Doesn’t always understand the people they inspire.|
|Empath||Build relationships between people to solve problems.||Spend too much time focused on people and not enough on problems.|
|Scholar||Analyzing problems in detail and organizing solutions||Spend too much time solving problems theoretically and not enough time solving them practically.|
I don’t think anyone falls neatly into a particular style. People are more complicated than that. But, I think there are one or two types that a apply most strongly to each of us.
I’m probably a scholar, with a bit of leader and empath thrown in. I’ve got to exercise self control to be a doer.
What style are you?
