In today’s day and age, companies are always looking for a way to optimize team-work, productivity, and efficiency.  This article may help small or medium-size businesses, or give some idea as to how business owners may manage employees in order get better results. Personality structures play a big role in this matter.  The idea behind BaZi structures or profiling is simple: to help find out what a person is good at, and to get them into a job or position that will help him/her get the most out of one’s strength. The BaZi structure/profiling system was presented by Joey Yap and it helps us to understand people’s characteristics on a deeper level. The main idea behind the BaZi structure/profiling system is that a person’s BaZi chart has four main parameters (i.e., Day, Month, Time and Year), and each parameter makes an impact on your life and behavior. The question is how critical is your influence?

Here is a short description of the 5 types of BaZi structures:

Wealth Structure:

Those with a Wealth Profile are independent, self-confident, accountable, results driven, hard-working and reliable. As usual, they are very purposeful, resourceful, knowledgeable and hard working. Having a Wealth Profile furthermore, yields the respect of colleagues, and helps all associated individuals become the main player(s) in the team. They in addition, don’t look for excuses or inanity, for their slogan is all about efficiency and efficacy. On the other hand however, Wealth Profiles can control driven people, yielding a tendency to the micro-manage.

Output Structure:

Individuals with an Output Profile are creative, with wide-eyed vision, innovative, improvers, bold and ultra-confident. Typically, such people have very good performance ratings, and love to shine in the glow of their success. Besides that, Output Profile people perform very well in presentations, and adore presenting and the like. The best words to describe such people are “making something from zero to hero.” Nonetheless they also have a negative side, with the tendency to be opinionated, confrontational, and challenging, as well sometimes find themselves in an illusory world.

Companion Structure:

The Companion Profile people are sociable, talkative, and conclusive in their views. When such a person appears in a team, he or she ignites the team with positive energy, and work thereby, starts moving faster. At the same time Companion Profile people play a main role in the team, can be volitional when it comes to decisions, and are excellent with networking. However, Companion Profile people can also suffer from narcissism, be over confident or even be careless. They are also prone to be procrastinators, and messy.

Influence Structure:

Those with the Influence Structure are nice and pleasing, consensus-building, flexible, not prone to conflict, detailed, supportive, thorough, measured, perseverant, driven, and can easily be a mid-tier manager. They are also fans of what they doing; they never step out of line and always knows their place in life. Influence Structure people are also risk averse, and are very detail-oriented. On the other hand, these individuals are quite sensitive, don’t like to take the lead, and prefer to not to disturb order in any way.

Resource Structure:

Resource Structure individuals love to ask questions, analyze everything, are systematic, neat, well-informed, patient, structured and reliable. Normally such people make great professionals and excellent advisers, as they always hold all the facts and figures in their hands. However, these people would not operate very well under pressure, and have a propensity to procrastinate and postpone, as well as over think rather than doing. They furthermore, have the tendency to micro-manage and be cautious.

Most people will fall into one of these five structures, or will have one of the characteristics dominate their personality. In some cases, a person’s structures are very clear and obvious even without consulting their BaZi chart.
