They say that variety is the spice of life. And that definitely applies when hiring. In fact, OpenView’s Talent Team has made a big push this year to focus on diversity in hiring. Diverse teams have been shown to out-produce their non-diverse counterparts and overall create more interesting, enjoyable workplaces.

That being said, when you’re hiring, there are certain personalities to look for and avoid. And when it comes to salespeople, we’ve found there are 4 distinct personalities: the Producer, the Professional, the Technician and the Caretaker. While all have good traits, there’s one person among the four you’d always want on your team in a closing role. Check out the infographic to find out.
