While you can glean valuable insight from the four main personality types, that’s just a start. Adding in personality trait descriptions (a sliding scale of 20 opposing traits) and secondary personality types adds much more nuance to your understanding of a person’s working temperament and style. The Bottom Line personality type is one of these secondary types identified in the Hire Success® system.
People with a Bottom Line personality are bold, confident, and all about tackling that next challenge. Read through the Bottom Line personality traits listed below and see if they sound like your job candidate.
As might be expected, Bottom Line personality types thrive in roles that are all about the bottom line. They excel when working with clearly defined key performance indicators. Whatever the goal — driving up revenue, reducing safety incidents, expanding reach, improving patient outcomes — they’ll do their best to reach it.
Bottom Line workers are known for rising to the occasion and making the best of challenging situations. However, they can be discouraged in environments where no one else seems to care about hitting the goal. Additionally, Bottom Line personality types sometimes come across as single-minded or arrogant to coworkers, but it usually becomes clear that they have high expectations for themselves as well.Learn about other secondary personality types
