Know yourself when job hunting: here’s another confirmation of that

Knowing yourself, your skills, your work likes and dislikes, is one of the most important things you need to do to successfully find a new job. I’ve written about that in the past and was reminded of it by a recent blog post I saw which deals with building an effective workplace team.

This blogger talks about different types of thinkers, namely, “You need Givers, Champs, Matrix Thinkers, and Savants.” Intriguing isn’t it? One of the qualities of a good consultant is to come up with catchy things like this.

Don't stress it, but do know yourself when applying for a job. Here's more confirmation of that.

So, the first article on this blog deals with Matrix Thinkers. “What makes The Matrix Thinker important to your team is their ability to see the big picture before the paint hits the canvas.

Give the same to a Matrix Thinker, and they will likely go out of numerical order, but create a puppy with jet engines and a flux capacitor. Count on your Matrix Thinker to solve any problem – from 10 different angles,” the blogger writes.

Are you a Matrix Thinker? If so, now you know a little more about what types of jobs are right for you. Software Advice published its research on these four workplace personalities in a summary on Entrepreneur. You can read the in-depth personality profile of a Matrix Thinker here.

And now you know a little more about what types of jobs are right for you.
