Quiz: Which ‘tricky type’ of colleague are you?

Tricky Types

Have you ever questioned what it's like to work with you? It's an important question to ask yourself as most of what you want in professional life depends on your reputation. Whether you get hired or fired, whether you get promoted or overlooked, depends on how others perceive you and what their experience of you is. While you should never drastically change yourself to fit someone else's expectations, it is useful to know what it's like to be on the receiving end of yourself. 

It's important to remember that all of these tendencies are dependent on context: you might be proactive and organised on a good day, but on a day where you're behind on sleep, you may be impatient and a bit chaotic. It also depends who you ask; different people in the business may experience you differently.  

This quiz is not intended to box you into one personality type: it's a reflective exercise to start you thinking about how others might perceive you.
