We are impressed! You have great workplace etiquette and could teach your co-workers a thing or two on how to behave at work. You are thoughtful and always think of how your actions might affect others. Punctuality and professionalism are very important to you. Answering your phone during an in-person meeting?

Stay strong, conflicted one! You can return that call later. We recommend you take a gander at some of our tips to help keep you headed in the right direction.
