A new study by Queen­dom. com and Psy­chTests.com re­veals rea­sons some em­ploy­ees hate work­ing on a team. Af­ter an­a­lyz­ing data from 18,869 peo­ple who took their Team Player Test, here is some of what the re­searchers un­cov­ered: 60 per cent hate work­ing with a team mem­ber who can’t keep up with the rest of the group; 50 per cent are frus­trated by team mem­bers who don’t pull their weight, leav­ing oth­ers to pick up the slack; 43 per cent can’t stand the de­lays that take place be­fore a team project kicks off, like plan­ning, role as­sign­ment, brain­storm­ing meet­ings, etc.; 40 per cent of peo­ple are frus­trated by a lack of role clar­ity; 36 per cent feel in­fe­rior to their col­leagues and are wor­ried that they won’t be able to han­dle their as­sign­ments or keep up with the pace of the team.
