So, what role do you play in your job? Are you the roaring barbarian, the clever pirate, or the introspective wizard?
Your class helps to determine your ideal role in a company and the environments to which you are most naturally drawn. For example, putting a barbarian in the R&D department or asking wizard to do a sales presentation is not likely to produce the best results.
Clearly identifying the classes within the team will allow you to find the best fit for their efforts. You will be better able to make changes that help you (and everyone else) be happier and more productive.
Force users thrive on direct confrontation. They take the shortest path to completion in their tasks and proactively remove obstacles that get in the way of success.
Force users are often seen in leadership positions, as they have the fortitude and drive to overcome opposition. But regardless of position, they are direct and candid in their communication and see little need to play office politics.

The gladiator is at home amidst roaring crowds and dirty tactics. Gladiators master all types of weapons and strategies that help them survive. They are equally at home in the boardroom, the sales floor, or production line.
Expertise users are masters of diplomacy, tact, and strategy. They serve to bind other parts of the organization together and keep the long view in mind in their planning. They expertly navigate treacherous environments through the use of nimble dexterity and forethought.
Pirates are masters of “getting-it-done” when the way is blocked. Back alley deals, picked locks, and dirty fighting are common tools in the pirate’s repertoire. Turn to the pirate when you need results with no questions asked.
Rangers know the secret paths to success and the dangers along the way. They can expertly track their prey across difficult terrain and bring it down with a will placed arrow. Rangers can lead expeditions to great effect and help them avoid pitfalls and snares in their journey.
The bard is the consummate “jack of all trades” class. They demonstrate a high degree of skill in many areas and can serve in any role in a pinch.
