In this article you'll find adjectives to describe people. You may want to do some research on your own, or make some up. I've only provided a handful. I mean what adjective do you use for the guy who calls going to the toilet "downloading"; a"gatekeeper"? Or the co-worker who makes you turn off your light and sit in your office in darkness if you hear their voice in the hallway, a "gabavoid"? Or the caller who races through an issue causing you to feel alarmed, perhaps a "scarecaller"? I've tried to name several types of people you might run into in the workplace. These are the mild-mannered personalities for the most part. Simple adjectives can be used to describe your run-of-the-mill co-worker. I've highlighted several I've spotted in the office. I've tried to give you English adjectives to politely describe them. If you need stronger words contact your bartender or your doctor, but first try searching through your thesaurus.
I hope you've enjoyed this issue of Bauenglish.com, and I hope you've learned a word, or maybe even how to get along better in the world. I know lofty aims for a broadsheet, but you have to have standards, right? The answers to the personality types in the office are subjective. Here are my answers: a. practical, b. intuitive, c. thin-skinned, d. fanatic, e. considerate, f. trustworthy, g. fashionista. Tell me anytime, what you think or how I can improve. Looking forward to hearing from YOU.
