  • Show Off: talks all the time and thinks they know all the answers.
  • Butterfly: keeps changing the topic before others are ready.
  • Aggressor: doesn’t show respect to others, comments negatively about them.
  • Avoider: refuses to focus on the task or on group relationship problems.
  • Critic: always sees the negative side to any argument, but never suggests alternatives. Puts down the ideas of others.
