Rock

  • You’re thorough, supportive and devoted – in fact, we’re pretty sure Olivia Newton-John wrote ‘Hopelessly Devoted to You’ in your honor. No matter how dreaded the task, You’re the first one to roll up your sleeves and dive in. You’re competent and quite methodical – we’ll never find you at your desk playing Farmville while eating Bonbons. Although You’re a bit of an introvert and prefer to have a small, close-knit group of friends, you thrive in leadership positions due to your crazy work ethic. Just remember: the office won’t collapse around you if you do eat Bonbons once in a while – we promise.

  • Like every personality type, your archetype has some weaknesses, but being aware of these weaknesses and learning to overcome them can help you further your career – and even your personal life! For this reason, we’ve compiled career tips for your unique personality type. Because of your traditional outlook towards work, some interpret you as being a bit stuck in your ways, making you appear a bit unwilling to try new things. As a Rock your “tried and true” approach towards work can be a positive – but it can also cause you to miss out on new opportunities. You have a tendency of lose sight of the end goal due to your affinity of getting lost in lengthy details of your work.
