POP or GOP – which are you?
Defining Your Personality Type
Let’s identify your personality.
People Oriented Person – People oriented personalities build relationships and community. They focus on the human aspect in executing a task i.e. concerned with how they can make the task easiest on the people involved.
People Oriented Personalities tend to:
Focus on the needs of the people around them.
Be concerned with building relationships and keeping people happy.
Place more importance on the feelings and happiness of people than on their to-do list.

Goal Oriented Person – These are people who have strict mindset of what they want to achieve or accomplish. They set their goals and do anything to achieve it. They are willing to take risks to achieve their dreams. Anyone can set a goal but it requires hard work, dedication, faith confidence with courage to accomplish them.

Goal Oriented personalities tend to:
Focus on their goals and the things they hope to accomplish.
Concerned with productivity and efficiency.
Have concrete goals and detailed lists.
BETTERMENT OF YOUR PERSONALITY
Strongly POP will need to balance focus on people and goals so as not to regret wasting extra time attending to people instead of important goals. On the other hand a GOP, needs to consciously have to take things easy on task, project or ideas so as not to neglect the other important things such as family or relationship attention in favor of their set goals to be achieved.
People Oriented Person – POP
Get your family and friends involved in your tasks. Work hand in hand together to get things done while having fun and executing the set goals.
Secure opportunities to get things done in smaller pieces instead of saving them up to do at once. Be conscious of your time.
Make use of the time you spend gisting or pinging to attend to more important things.
Rather than wasting so many resources on unprofitable things why don’t you use that period to execute your goals.
Goal Oriented Person – GOP
Create time to focus on the people around you and commit to setting aside your goals during that time.
Try as much as possible to make eye contact with people when talking to you so that they have your full attention, even though you may be tempted to multitask.
Make sure you add a relationship attention goal to your goals list; such as attending social gatherings, calling friends and family to know their well-being.
Always find time to go out with family or friends.
THE BEST PRINCIPLE
On your path to excellence, take at least someone along. You can’t do everything yourself. Let people watch your back while you are making mistake. A mistake can cost you eternal down fall.
Develop a win-win mindset. You can always win. No man is born as a loser.
… it’s lonely at the top, so you better know why you are there.
God doesn’t care who you were, only who you are!
1 cor.13:13 there are three things that will endure – faith, hope, and love – and greatest of these is love.
WHY PEOPLE ORIENTED PERSONALITY AND GOAL ORIENTED PERSONALITY NEED EACH OTHER
POP + GOP = PERFECTION
“Our success has really been based on partnerships from the very beginning.” – Bill Gates
Individuals who are POP tend to be strongly motivated to establish good working relationships with coworkers, supervisors and subordinates. These individuals often have very strong communication skills and care about the well-being of workers, the physical environment, and tend to take time to share information, teach and train. They may value group activities, meetings, moral-building opportunities and discussions to solve problems and make plans.
Those who are GOP tend to be very focused on accomplishing goals. These individuals are interested in following rules and creating structures and systems to boost productivity and they tend to work best when they are focused on tangible, measurable objectives.
It is not always true that a person who is people oriented person cannot also be goal oriented person. Understanding whether or not your coworkers, supervisors, and others are motivated by human relationship or tangible goals and structures can also help you in learning how to work best with different individuals. The more you know about what and why people are doing what they do at work, the more you can learn how both styles can work compatibly to get the job done
