    You have identified 4 types of officers using a combination of 4 descriptions derived from 2 attributes (activity level and intelligence).

    Does this make you energetic for creating the post, lazy for copying it from elsewhere on this site, smart for copying the post or stupid for titleing it two types when 4 are clearly shown.

  2. .... or does it make him a smart arrse for plagiarising the qualities of an officer identified by Napoleon ?

    I knew it wasn't original, but didn't know the source material.

    Still true though!

  4. .... as a lazy and stupid variety I have ample time to sit back and read - hence my identifying the source... now, time for another snooze.........

  6. so everyone knows what this is on about.

    Two Types of Officers

    All officers can be categorized by 2 paired attributes: energetic/lazy and smart/stupid.

    The energetic/smart officer is often referred to as "high speed, low drag". They are the hard chargers who will either go far or screw up spectacularly. A commander is lucky to have such an officer as long as they can control them just enough to keep then from crashing and burning.

    The lazy/smart officer is a pearl of great price. They will never try to make anything happen that is not already on their plate UNLESS they spot a problem that might make their life more difficult. They will nip such problems in the bud. Every job they have will be easier when they leave that it was when they arrived.

    The lazy/stupid officer can be useful for the routine jobs that aren't very demanding but still need to be done. Put them under the supervision of an experienced and competent Corporal.

    The energetic/stupid officer is a viper at the breast of any command. They mean well. Catastrophe follows in their wake. They will volunteer for a suicide mission. Find one for them.
