Adam broke down with Ryan the three key styles in the work environment: 1) Giving 2) Taking 3) Matching.

Givers are the types of people who show-up early at work, mentor others, and stay late to help-out. They give without expecting anything in return. Takers are the types of people who "take" and look out for only themselves. While matchers are the most common type of person at work. Matchers have the philosophy: "You help me, and I'll help you" (tit for tat).
