Pro: You thrive when working alone but can also work productively in pairs if necessary. You’re good at tossing ideas back and forth with co-workers and keeping the discussion going. You go hard, and you know that practice makes perfect — but passion is really what matters.
Con: You’re going to have to find a way to work with a group.
Pro: You don’t mind contributing to a group goal, but you prefer to stay in your lane and grind it out. You’re a great strategizer and often see how each action will affect the outcome. You are a fun co-worker who organizes all of the office birthday parties.
Con: Your ego can get in the way of the team’s success. Remember to throw the ball occasionally instead of running it in.
Pro: You work quickly and efficiently, and you’re great at knowing your role within a team. You enjoy specializing in a few skills rather than knowing a little about everything. You work hard and play hard, and you’re not afraid to take a Hail Mary shot with a crazy idea if you see an opening.
Con: It’s okay to disagree with a colleague, but you can’t just start fistfights at the office.
Pro: You’re independent and self-motivated, and you can dedicate yourself to a long-term project. You’re not afraid to take risks, and you are detail-oriented. You are skilled in both collaboration and competition.
Con: Not everything is a competition! Sometimes, it’s okay to just relax and get the job done.
BASKETBALL OR VOLLEYBALL
Pro: You are a great communicator and excel at evenly sharing a workload, but you aren’t afraid to step up and take the shot if that’s what it takes to get the win. You’re competitive but team-oriented, and you’re everyone’s work bestie.
Con: You’re inclined to say yes to everything until there’s too much on your plate.
SOCCER OR FOOTBALL
Pro: You’re a great team player who doesn’t mind repetitive tasks and long-term goals. You thrive on energy and speed, but you’re also dependable and skilled. You’re especially adept at recognizing each co-worker’s contributions to a successful endeavor.
