I would like to begin my article by accepting the four assumptions put forth by the authors of this invaluable book. Of course, it is true that the employees’ contribution is the pillar of any given organization. Their cooperation is what determines the success and the eventual accomplishment of the set objectives. Hence, their behavior is a very important aspect that should be treated cautiously. They should not be neglected at all costs since such an action can jeopardize the success of the organization.
The two of my fellow workers whose characters I can describe are John and Paul. Since they are so close to me, understanding their characters will not be challenging to me. Precisely, whereas John has a positive attitude towards work, works hard with no supervision, Paul hates work, is lazy and needs to be pulled around to do any task given.
However, in line with Myers-Briggs Big Five Personality Factors, I can take it that John is conscious of his role. On the other hand, Paul is not open, because it is hard to make out his real traits. So, since these traits do not appeal to me, I will use the third and fourth assumptions to make sure that these people are closely monitored to deliver their best to the organization.
