There's a theory out there that you can split workers into two general categories based on their aptitudes: hunters or farmers.
Hunters are competitive with themselves and other and love the "thrill of the chase" when they work. They do best in roles where they can convert leads from cold to hot and showcase their ability to close many deals.
Farmers tend to be focused on quality and nurturing relationships over competition. They tend to perform best in a role where the focus is growing and maintaining client or customer relationships by provided a good quality of service.
Each type has its strengths and weaknesses. Which do you think you are: a hunter or a farmer?
Heads up! You could be asked this question in an interview, so take a shot at preparing your answer in the comments. :)
