Small group exercise

Small Group Exercise

George can quickly tell what’s going on in any situation and is not afraid to speak out about what should be done. He doesn’t follow the latest fad, but wears clothes that are practical. When you first meet George, you notice he is friendly. Later you realize he hasn’t told you much about his personal life. You go out to lunch with George. He orders steak medium rare, but the meat is served nearly raw. George shouts for the waiter, and complains loudly. The waiter apologizes and takes the steak back to be cooked longer, but George doesn’t want to wait. He demands to see the manager and tells her in the future he’ll eat elsewhere. You both grab a lunch at a drive-through and are back at the office in time for George’s next meeting.

Which style is George?
