The lover goes to work because they like the relationships their jobs bring them, whether they’re in an office or out on the road selling. You’ll hear them saying most of their clients are good friends. They’re interested in people, they remember birthdays and names and ask caring questions. They tend to be generous and open and they share their ideas. They’re usually the life and soul of an office and they often see their colleagues outside work. They have a gift for conversation and they’re persuasive. If you want your staff to work late one evening, the Lover of the office will persuade them. What they do: This person is excellent in the diplomatic service, they can usually sell anything to anyone, they can persuade people to get involved in their projects and they’re brilliant in fundraising for charities. Weak areas: The lover avoids conflict and difficult conversations and they find it hard to discipline and control people. They’re not as self-reliant as some types and they seek other people’s approval too much. They’re often seen as players rather than leaders, and they shy away from awkward jobs such as making staff redundant. They try to be everyone’s friend and feel uncomfortable when they have difficult jobs to do, such as dealing with discipline issues.
