The parameters and factors that affect the individual, myself and my boss, have been listed down below and the same is used for further classifying which of the four types is dominating in our personality.
On self analysis, my behaviour pattern is generally open and direct. I indicate my preferences directly. I dress fashionably and appear pretty stylish. I love to have a stimulating work environment that would encourage working. I keep material personally and do not go about sharing with colleagues that easily. My place is cluttered and not really spick and span. I am a friendly person with keenness to make new friends. I do jobs swiftly and respond immediately to issues. I enjoy my interactions with people and give it utmost priority. Naturally, since I give respect to my interactions with people, any loss of prestige with my friends is my worst fear. When I am under pressure or tension, I retaliate by being sarcastic or attacking back at the people who are causing it to me. I would like to have my friend, people and colleagues recognise me for my work. I take time to understand the advantages of the work to my friends and clients. I try to understand who makes use of it and how and how do people benefit out of it. This ensures that the work gains security by being flexible and allows me to maintain my status. I am open and welcome suggestions from my colleagues. I respect their ideas and create an atmosphere that is stimulating, enjoyable and playful. This would increase the amount of inputs that a person might get out of the job. I expect my colleagues to be equally stimulating, respecting my opinions and ideas. May be my target is to be admired by my colleagues.
But I certainly get irritated by boredom and routine work. If there is a lack of creative job, that really causes excessive boredom. As a matter of fact, routine work also causes boredom. I tend to measure my performance by the amount of goudas that I receive. It is recognition for my work; the compliments and the acknowledgement for the work that I have put in. This is the greatest motivator for me to work further. Though I generally make well thought out decisions, there are times when I make spontaneous decisions too.
