We’ve gathered 11 of the most easily identifiable personality traits in a workplace. Take a look below to see if the characteristics match you or anyone you might know in your office.
Which office character are you?
Every office has a chatterbox, someone you’d want to avoid like the plague. As soon as they start talking they just can’t stop and you’re stuck there listening to their 40-minute story.
Chatterboxes are known to speak their mind and can never keep thoughts to themselves.
The workaholic, on the other hand, are practically the opposite, with their heads busily buried in their work they will rarely stop you for a chat. In fact, they will eat, sleep and breathe their work and look down on co-workers that actually have a social life.
They like to show they are independent and of course ambitious, but don’t be fooled… They at times have a dark side which is their volatile and rigid nature.
They like to be there in the earliest hours of the office before anybody else and the last to leave.
The Meeting Scheduler
Every office has one worker that absolutely loves pointless and time-consuming meetings. These meetings can go on for hours. This person would like nothing more than to have a meeting every day for 365 days a year. Their real job is to fill your inbox with countless, pointless meeting requests.
The Helpful One

The Un-Censored Sharer
This person does not have a sensor whatsoever and literally shares everything and anything they want from intimate date details to just offensive comments. Their offensive and humiliating statements are always a laughing matter which makes them known as the joker of the office.

If you decide to share your news with them, don’t guarantee it will be in safe hands, they won’t withhold your news to themselves for long, it’s bound to be passed around at one point or another.
The Quiet One

They’ll even send you tons of emails if they’re sitting right next to you. Your inbox will be filled by that one recipient every day and you will forever know them as – the e-mail fanatic.
