I had a crazy idea and can't find anything on Google
How would you slot MBTI into the von Manstein matrix of officer/manager types?
I doubt anyone would want their type slotted into the "active stupid"
but maybe for the other three slots???
#1. Smart + Lazy: Innovative type that does not rush into things. He figures out the easiest way to accomplish a goal. Has a strategic mind and long-term view. Is a good leader.
The “Smart Lazies” Discover Value — These are typically the founders of a company.
#2. Smart + Active: Follows opportunities as they arise in realtime. A manager type. His intelligence is sometimes diluted being confused by too many parallel things and lack of discipline to focus. Gets lots of stuff done. Not a great leader.
The “Smart Actives” Capture Value — These are typically the professional managers of the company during it’s growth phase.
#3. Stupid + Lazy: Follows orders. Does not show too much own initiative. Operative administration type. Often inherits value created by the Smart-Actives. Does no harm on teams. Performs in a consistent predictable manner.
The “Stupid Lazies” Maintain Value — These are the staff and administration which handle the day-to-day management chores of an operating entity. Basically, the “Stupid Lazies” inherit the value created by the labors of the “Smart Actives”
#4. Stupid + Active: Dangerous type. Does not follow orders, makes mistakes and pursues his own agenda. Default behaviour is to act in absence of skill. Causes all kinds of trouble.
The “Actively Stupid” Destroy Value — These are the elements that can spring up like cancer within an organisation and create a drag on company performance that can only be cured through radical excision from the organisation.
