What type of worker are you

After having a discussion with a co-worker tonight about other co-workers it got me thinking about the different types of people you might work with on a day to day basis. This is just a starter list I'll have to come up with more.

1. The Do Nothing: The type of person who talks the talk but can't walk the walk. They always have the solution for every problem but either have no idea how to get it done or rely on others to get it done.

2. The I'm To Busy: The type of person who always has too much to do and always points that out to everyone. This is the person who works very slowly and shuns away any new work that might be offered them.

3. Slow Typers: The person who could get so much more done if they would just learn how to use shortcut keys. CTRL-X,C,V,P are there for a reason learn how to not use your mouse for everything.

4. Super Organized People: These are the people everyone envies. The people with the nice organized everything. Papers are in folders, Cans are on coasters, pens and other items are put away in their rightful place and they can always find what they are looking for.

5. What Do You Do Around Here People: These are the people who come to work everyday and have nothing to show for it. Their co-workers also have no clue what they do. They goto meetings, they make suggestions but they never actually contribute.

6. The Overwhelmed: These are the people that have so much on their plate they never get anything done. They have way to many windows open on their computer. They have too many conference calls and they will do anything someone asks them done because they know they can do it better.

7. Can Do Anything People: These are the people everyone comes to when they have a question. The ones who always have a solution or a good idea what is going on. These are the people that run organizations. The ones that leave a void when they are gone.
