Personality and Psychologie...here is another way of seing cooks or employee...
I put them in two catégories: active and not-Active.
In the Active side you have The Pro-Active (who is independent and as a critical way of thingking). He is a leader, he will want resonsability, will do is best every time, will be willing to support is superior and the enteprise he works for, he will find solution to problems, he will be ahead in is work, will try to find solutions before the problem arrives. he will deploy a lot of energy in his work.
Also on the Active side you have The good soldier ( who his dependant and has a non-critical way of thingking). He is the perfect follower, he will do what is expected of him, he will not say no to the request of his superior (as long as the request are respectfull of his hability). He will deploy a lot of energy in his work.
On the not-active side you have the Passive (who his dependant and has a non-critical way of thingking). This employe does not move, his always late in his work, he is lazy, his work will not be done in the correct way, disciplinary mesures does not work with him.
On the Not active side you also have the Alienated employee. (who is independent and as a critical way of thingking)This employee does everything wrong and he does it on purpose, he will lie, sabotage, spread rumors... you name it and he does it.
In the middle of all these types you have the Pragmatic survivor. the Pragmatic survivor adopt all four of the different personnality at different time. His name says it all, he is a survivor, he will work for a long time in an enterprise and survive the lay offs, deadly conflits, clan wars...and keep is job.
I hope you cooks and chef enjoyed reading me.
If you have any questions, let me know.
