Leading Personalities…Melancholy

The Melancholy personality traits include perfection, attention to detail, and organizational skills. They are talented, skilled in art, music and composition.

More negatively, their traits include depression, mania for perfection that keeps them from completing the job on time, mood swings (up one day, down the next), or sometimes a complete lack of interest.

When motivated and controlled, they are productive, caring about detail and doing the job right.

However, they can strive too much for perfection, and their moodiness can make it difficult to work on a team.

Knowing each personality helps leaders understand followers and how to lead in the most beneficial way.
