Scholar type people will focus on the task and self-development. Scholarly people usually like assignments, data and details.

People with relater type will enjoy relationships with other people. Relater people usually like to be surrounded by people who are open in building relationships, not rushed and warm.

People with promoter types have good communication skills and work with a results orientation.

People with the type of executor will work with result orientation and be demanding.
