We were given the Belbin Team Role Inventory at work last week. It is used to assess what role you feel you are best suited to in a team. It is named for Dr Meredith Belbin who, in the 1970's, devised the test as a way of controlling the dynamics of groups working together and pre-empting problems or personality clashes by finding out which roles people were most suited to.
So, after doing the test, it turned out I'm a 'plant'. The supervisor who administered the test and gathered up the results became quite excited about that. Apparently, plants are a rare thing and don't normally show up but anybody who knows me would certainly agree, I am a indeed a rare thing! She also said, 'plants are very creative and big thinkers'.
So, there you go. I am a rare thing or as defined on Wikipedia, 'unorthodox, bright and free -thinking' At last, my genius is being recognised!
