Which of these would you do to become boss?

The "Hands-Off" Boss

The "Hands-Off" Boss

According to your results, you're all set to become either the best boss ever - or the cause of many bouts of therapy: The "Hands Off" Boss! A glorious hero to some and a nightmare to others, she/he is completely absent for large chunks of time, and chooses to stay out of anything that doesn't directly concern the higher-rungs of the ladder. You're not becoming anyone's boss to micro-manage or power-trip, which is excellent - BUT you may be 10000% prepared to take advantage of the freedom granted to those in power. Be sure to hire some independent thinkers, or you're in for a world of annoyance!

The "Buddy Boss"

The "Buddy Boss"

Who doesn't like a buddy boss? Turns out, a lot of people, so be careful! Your results indicate a tendency to be positive and influential, which is excellent, but you do so by befriending others. If you hire the right team of people, or are given the right team, you could literally become the world's best boss. Stay clear of drama queens and overly-self-absorbed employees (basically navigating the work space like a high school clique) and you'll be a fantastic, friendly, and caring boss your employees will LOVE to work for! Once you get sucked in as the "buddy" into personal drama, though, there is NO turning back...

The "Balanced Boss"!

The "Balanced Boss"!

Your results indicate an individual born to be a boss! You're cool, calm, and collected under pressure, and know how to apply this to business-oriented situations. You can be firm, but also know how to throw an appreciation-party when warranted. Genuinely, there are few like you out there, and any team of well-mannered employees would be thrilled to have you in charge. Just remember to not be too soft on poor behavior, and you'll fall in love with being the boss!

The "Micro-Manager"

The "Micro-Manager"

Ah, yes. We all know one, don't we? Did you see this coming? Your results indicate an individual excellently-suited to being boss, but one who is in great danger of becoming the maligned micro-manager... Your tendencies to be both a perfectionist and a work-a-holic will heavily come into play as a boss, as you trust no one but yourself to get things done right - especially the first time. Unless you are miraculously granted an entire team of iron-hearted, 'please give me all the direction' employees, you're not exactly going to be voted "world's most loved boss". On the flip side, though, is the potential for an incredibly profitable, and noticeable turn as a boss - one destined for greater things!

The "Power Tripper" Boss

The "Power Tripper" Boss

You are of the staunch opinion that power is wasted on most - but you would not be one of those people. Given the tools and the personnel, you'd turn a company into a well-oiled fear machine over night. The higher ups will LOVE you, but those that work for you? Not so much. Not so much, at all. Your results indicate an individual with the potential to bully for the sake of productivity. Find a way to quell those angry instincts, however, and you'd be a phenomenal leader.
