More People You Find In Every Office
1 September 2017
You don’t have to study people too hard to realise that there are several different personality types in any walk of life but, none more so than in your workplace. Essentially, you’re thrown together with a group of people who you might not necessarily choose as a social acquaintance and spend most of your week with them.
There’s always someone who loves a bit of gossip, someone who keeps an entire snack bar in their desk and, of course, the brown noser who’ll do just about anything to make the boss smile.
Take a look at our list and see how many you can spot from your office.
The Meeting Lover
This person loves nothing more than a talking shop. They’re always arranged a meeting or a ‘catch up’ and luring you in to hours of endless drivel.
The Gym Bunny
They go before work; they go at lunch; they go after work. All this means is that you’re left feeling guilty for sneaking in a Fat Friday trip to McDonald’s.
The Shy Guy (or Gal)
These are usually the ones to watch. They’ll barely say boo to a goose in the office but get them a few drinks on a night out and they’ll be up on a table, leading the karaoke.
The Social Networker
How do they do it? They have a million LinkedIn connections and are always getting invited to breakfasts or drinks receptions. Who can make that much small talk?!
Even though your office has windows, there will always be someone who will tell the entire office that it’s raining outside. We know. We have eyes.
“Tea or coffee?” This person is a pro at taking up drinks orders and successfully delivering them to your desk without spilling a drop.
