Altruist

    Altruists are not glory seekers. They get their sense of satisfaction from being supportive. They seek harmony and are usually the first to offer a helping hand to a colleague in need. It’s usually helpful because Altruists are detail-oriented and precise in their work, and their follow-up is strong.

    Signature work styles

    The extraverted Altruist dives happily into group conversations and remains cool, even if things get heated. Though they persuasively and enthusiastically share their own opinions, Altruists truly want to hear from others. Their decisions will carefully weigh all the available opinions and options. Once the decisions are made, Altruists will be willing to delegate tasks—but expect them to check in often to ensure the work gets done.
