My second day at my new job, and apparently, I developed a new spidey sense! I can detect burned up employees after spending 10 minutes with them!
It's astonishing how this keeps repeating itself over and over. In every job you have the same bunch of people
1. The super achiever!
The guy who does everything, walks on water and just rocks the world. Of course, having one of those is bad for everyone else since they simply can't, or unwilling to even change their attitude!
2. The wannabe super-achiever
These folks hang around type 1 above, trying to imitate everything they do. They lack innovation and proactivity and appear to fail miserably despite the effort they put in. They eventually turn to one of the types below.
3. The careless
The world could burn, and these people won't give a damn. They just lost all interest in the job, and work only to get a paycheck to pay the bills. Other than "being there" these folks are rarely good for anything.
4. The naggers
Nothing will go out of your mouth without being scrutinized by these bunch. Every possible problem with anything is blown up and torn to pieces. It's hard to get anything done when these are around. Worse part, they think they're doing a great job nit-pinking!
5. The burned out
These folks used to be a #1 or a #2, but after doing it all, and more, they were poorly rewarded, and their achievements went unnoticed
6. The black hole!
These folks do not intend to be evil or bad. But they are deep positivity wells. They suck everything positive from this life. They see only the negativity of the management. They argue how everything is going to hell, the can be confused with type 3,4 or 5 but they are in fact a species on their own. They will always see the cup as mostly empty no matter how much water you pour in it.
Avoid these folks like the plague, their negativity is contagious!
7. The evil genius
These folks could easily be type 1 above. But they choose to be villains. They like to waste company resources. Waste people's time and simply pretend to work. Although they have the potential to be great. They prefer to remain as they are.
8. The mommy!
Everyone's mommy. This lady brings cookies, donuts and other yummy stuff to work EVERY DAY, she gives knitting lessons in her spare time, gives advise on recycling everything around the house to save money and will neatly personalize a birthday card the she made for you. She's so nice she'll make you sick. Watch out for these turning into your wife's best friend.
There you have it folks! 1 day I step into the new office, the second day, everyone nicely take their spot on the list! This is going to be so exciting!
