Are you stubborn as a grass stain or as easy going as a light breeze on a warm day? Tell us about the ways in which you’re stubborn — which issues make you dig your heels in and refuse to budge?
I think you have to be flexible when needed and when it is obvious that it is needed. Things will be tough if you do not accept change or a different way to accomplish a goal especially when you are part of a team or working on a project with other people. Easy going people are more popular and people seek them out as they like to work with them or be friends with them and hang around them. It goes without saying that popularity can get you a lot of things that you want; that favour, that extra mile and that preference might just be yours because you treated other people better and for them, being / working with you was a pleasant experience.
On the other end of the spectrum you don’t want to be labelled a pushover or a asskisser because you adjust and bend for everyone and everything. You can easily get the reputation of not having a consistency, integrity or a backbone if you are Mr.Anything Goes! It is a balance but pick and choose the places where you have to be firm and not yielding under pressure. People who find the balance are the most liked successful people.
