Secondary Personality Type: Highly Correct

In addition to personality types (A, B, C, and D), which are the broadest types, Hire Success® also uses personality descriptors to help paint a more detailed picture of how a particular person tends to behave at work. These include the character trait descriptions, which are sliding scales of opposing personality traits (such as introverted/extroverted), as well as secondary personality types such as the Highly Correct personality type.

How to identify a Highly Correct personality type

People belonging to the Highly Correct personality type aren’t always correct — but they often are because it really matters to them. These detail-oriented thinkers always do their homework and can have a streak of perfectionism. They often pick up on things others miss (and sometimes save the day because of it). Occasionally, their highly rational nature can conflict with those around them, especially if they view others as behaving in a way that doesn’t make sense.
