In addition to the four main personality types (A, B, C, and D), Hire Success® also uses a sliding scale of 20 character trait descriptions and an expanded list of secondary personality types. These additional measures of personality give you a much more nuanced understanding of a person’s strengths, preferences, and tendencies at work.
Driven personality types are ambitious, persistent, and want to succeed. They don’t mind putting the work in to achieve their goals (and are among the most likely types to become workaholics). Keep reading and see if the list of Driven personality traits below sounds familiar.
Driven personality types like to be in charge, and they can be very good at it, especially on results-oriented teams. They’re focused on results as well as personal success. Driven personality types work hard (sometimes too hard) and can be reluctant to cede control to others who they think may not be putting in enough effort.
You’ll find lots of Driven personality types among leaders, but they can also be extremely effective as higher-level individual contributors, able to pursue their own success without the responsibility of a team.Learn about other secondary personality types
