@deairby I am most often a worker, as I cannot abide not accomplishiing things, but I am also crossed with a warrior. But, I have struggled on the warrior side as a female–sad to say but women (and I have been in very male dominated industries) who are take charge, aggressive , or strident are not as appreciated for those qualities as are men.
I’ve actually used Myers-Briggs more, which is fairly accurate in my experience. While it didn’t always solve issues, it usually helped with understanding.
If you can’t figure it out, I don’t handle whiners well, and umm weasels—the name is repulsive.
While you don’t want to write someone off, if you are the manager/owner, you can use these scales to help, either to attempt to effect change, or help others to find strategies to cope. Worst case, you can look at something like a Myers-Briggs to help determine if a candidate will be a good fit.
After a lot of years of working, I learned that a good fit personality-wise is HUGE.
