Their result for Is Your Boss Evil? ...

Lackey (EI)

Your boss is 17% good-natured, and 42% competent at their job!

Memo to you: your boss classifies as The Lackey, and falls into the Evil and Incompetent category. This means he/she scored between 0% and 50% on 'goodness' and between 0% and 50% on 'competency'.

 

So, your boss is a pretty unpleasant person to be around, by the looks of things. It may be that they harass or bully you or your coworkers. It may be that they very rigidly stick to all of the rules, refusing to make allowances for the individual circumstances some of their subordinates face (maternity leave? No. Not until your water breaks). They may just blindly regurgitate the words of the people that work above them, expecting you to make your 7,503 sales per hour without realising - or caring - that this target is completely unreasonable. Fortunately for you, your boss may be evil but they're also fairly thick. Therefore, if they're the only person around to monitor your behaviour, you can probably get away with breaking a few rules.

 

HOW TO DEAL WITH THIS BOSS ARCHETYPE: Lackeys may be mean-spirited, but they're comparatively easy to deal with. If your boss is harassing or otherwise being excessively unpleasant to you or others, there's a good chance that they'll get caught - or that you can report them and they'll crumble quickly. If they catch you not doing your work, you can pretty easily dodge the bullet by discreetly kicking the power cable for your computer and telling them your PC has been malfunctioning all day. In short: play dumb. Your boss will buy it.

 

If they're more prone to simply parroting off targets, memoes and corporate-speak, try getting a few of your more intelligent coworkers to rally up with you in hitting your boss with a barrage of questions at your next meeting. When confronted with questions, this archetype will typically crumble faster than Lindsay Lohan's acting career. My previous team leader at my call centre job fell into this category. When he tried to set sales targets for us that the other teams didn't have, three of us began questioning him at a meeting. Within ten minutes, we'd made him cry.

 

So, wanna give one of my other creations a try? I swear they're better than this one.
