There are a few quirks that tend to run high in good workers.

This thesis is supported by some psychologists.

Find out here which customs these are.

How good someone is at work can be measured in different ways.

There would be good job references, a promotion and a lot of praise from the manager.

But can you also recognize from behavior that you have a really good employee and colleague in front of you?

According to GQ magazine, psychologists and management experts agree.

Among other things, the following

three characteristics

should indicate that you are dealing with a capable colleague:

  • Procrastination:

    Do you procrastinate? That doesn't necessarily mean you're lazy. Another common explanation for procrastination is that you're just waiting for the right inspiration. According to GQ, procrastination is synonymous with creativity, a trait possessed by many geniuses.

  • Maintaining chaos on the desk

    : Who is the better employee - the one with order or the one with chaos on the office desk? Definitely the latter, as University of Minnesota psychologist Kathleen Vohs found out. This was shown in an experiment with 48 subjects who were asked to think about what else table tennis balls could be used for. 24 study participants had to master the task in a tidy place, the other 24 in a chaotic workplace. According to the portal Karrierebibel.de, the subjects from the Messy office were clearly superior when it came to the originality of the ideas. Their solutions were more imaginative, more unusual, more experimental. According to Vohs, the experiment shows that chaos brings more creative ideas to light and that unconventional solutions are pursued.

  • Complaining openly

    : Does your colleague find fault with everything?

    Not a good sign, in the worst case he destroys the work ethic of the others.

    What speaks for an employee, however, is when they address problems openly.

    According to the GQ portal, this shows that the colleague has a goal in mind and is not afraid to clear the stumbling blocks on the way to achieving this goal.
