When intelligence agents get their orders, some teams work together and some operatives go-it alone. Let's say you're part of a CIA operation. Would you be more comfortable being a link in a chain or being the pivotal padlock hanging from the end? However you answer, your personality says a lot about your team chemistry proclivities.
Maybe you're like Annie: ready to be part of the team, but anxious to prove your worth. Or maybe you're like Jai: working on his own to help the team. Answer the following questions to find out if you're a team player or a loose canon.
You're not comfortable being a small cog in a wheel. Sure, there's safety in numbers but you'd rather step out of line in order to get things done. You look at the group dynamic as a stop sign, but your light is always green.
The truth is, you feel safe working within the confines of a team. But you're always showboating your talents and you constantly butt heads with team leaders. That doesn't mean you don't bring a lot to the table; it's just that you prefer to sit at the head of the table.
You're more than fine with carrying out orders. But occasionally, when the team's down or there are no other options, you step up into the spotlight and take the reigns. It's a tough decision, but you know when the time's right.
The best team players are the ones you don't notice. You're the type of person who will take a bullet, provided the rest of the team succeeds. We need more people like you out there.
