“Follow the plan and reach the goal”
Beavers are directive and introverted in their style. All types of Beavers will have I (for Introverted) in their four letter Myers Briggs code, and the directive part comes from a T (for thinking) and/or a J (for Judging) in their code. There are four colors of Beavers:
- Red Beavers (ISTP types) are flexible, action oriented and objective. They work quickly toward solving the problems of the moment.
- Gold Beavers (ISTJ types) are responsible, duty oriented and dependable. They work steadily and consistently toward the goal.
- Blue Beavers (INTJ types) are intellectual, knowledge oriented and structured. They apply concepts and theories to complex problems and use foresight in order to achieve the best quality solution possible.
- Green Beavers (INFJ types) are motivational, people oriented and organized. They use their insights and foresight to help the team solve problems and achieve goals.
