For me, I’m sorry to say this sounds like “pigeon holing” and that is a premise I am uncomfortable with.
Think of children. How they are relegated to ‘types’ in grade school and how that follows them through out their educational lives. It is patently unfair to have one person deciding how to direct another persons life.
Educational or business – doesn’t matter. We do tend to categorize people but is that fair? It all comes down to judging someone, whether it’s on their merits, work ethic, personality clash, jealousy and so on.
Having said that, as adults, we can see that outgoing, sometimes boisterous people make better salesmen than accountants. But is that really true? I don’t know as I personally know some soft spoken, mild mannered people who are at the top of the salesman ladder. So, I don’t know.
Probably a good book you’ve mentioned and worth reading too. It’s the whole idea of sitting around a table and deciding someone else’s future based on personality traits. I just don’t think it’s a fair way to JUDGE people.
