I'm a completer finisher (CF)/
I think you have to pay to take this but I love stuff like this.
but I'd say I probably am the one that gets the team to gel
I'm like 90% CF and also quite high on Monitor Evaluator and also high on Plant. Which is a really unusual combination apparently.
(although I'm equally comfortable working on my own)
It's useful to think of those roles in a team but to me, the skill in team work is being able to adapt your approach and which role you take according to the needs of the team.
I'm not much of a Completer Finisher but otherwise I might be any of these things depending who I'm with, what we're doing and how everyone else is interacting.
I did it with a group of about 12 people and it seemed to confirm our perceptions of each other. I think we do have certain tendencies and some people are just never going to be e.g. good with the fine details, or able to think creatively in a given situation etc. Also, the results give you your 'percentage' for every role and a report about that particular combination. Love Belbin ok.
can't cope with people saying those kinds of phrases even semi-seriously

I'm the one who doesn't turn up or do any of the work.
