You are an Empathizer

You've walked a mile in nearly everyone's shoes, which helps you understand others' feelings and anticipate their needs. Your ability to relate easily to a coworker's situation gives you valuable insight into how you can offer assistance. In fact, people often confide in you and appreciate your ability to identify with their problems and help them find solutions.

Your ability to easily relate to others makes you a natural when it comes to intuiting your coworkers' needs, but be careful not to rely completely on emotions when making decisions. Backing up your assumptions with research and analysis can steer you in the right direction when the stakes are high. Additional information also can prevent you from being taken advantage of by colleagues who may rely on you more than necessary because of your accommodating disposition. By getting a little emotional distance, you can make the best decisions about both how and when to offer a hand to others.
