Mostly A: Leader
Confident and outgoing, leaders are decisive, authoritative and good team motivators.
Needs to work on: Taking advice and criticism from others, and not feeling pressure to always get it right.
Mostly B: Implementer
Implementers are great at turning ideas into realities and getting on with a project instead of just talking about it.
Needs to work on: They can be impatient so implementers tend to make more mistakes than other team members.

Researchers are good communicators and are more methodical in their approach than other team members.
Needs to work on: Maintaining a balance because they expend more energy with fewer results, and their enthusiasm can wane.
