Martyrs love to suffer, and they do it quite well. While they claim to not want recognition, they use guilt and silence to get across how hard they are working. They may seem in control yet are actually highly anxious and need to find ways to be in control.
The martyr often takes on the role of parent at work. They want you to tell them all your personal, as well as professional concerns so they can help you solve them, even better, solve them for you. They tend to tell everyone within listening range how much they are needed and how good they are at taking care of business (including yours).
Martyrs love to end the day talking about how they are underpaid, overworked and unappreciated. One of the martyr’s favorite sentences is “Don’t worry, I’ve got your back.” Translated that means you will have to give back to me more than I ever gave you and I will make sure you never forget it.
GOOD NEWS – The Martyr can become an Integrator! Once they understand that good deeds are their own payment they can stop the incessant need for repayment and use their great talents for detail to help a team work together at a high level of performance.
