Is everyone in IB a type A person?
I am definitely a type B kind of person.
Some people at my bank just need to chill out. It is not that serious. Some tasks and assignments do not have to be delivered immediately. One missing period is not going to kill a deal.
Can you not be great at this job and also chill at the same time? Are they mutually exclusive?
I get that IB and high finance in general draws type A personalities, but who hurt you?
How are you so driven?
Do you not feel like you are about to burnout?
How do VP+ still have the energy to be that anal?
Is it just expected in NYC, the city where everyone feels the need to grind and work insane hours?
Is competition not for losers?
I understand the position that I am in. Getting paid well for making slides and playing around in excel is great, and I take my job seriously, but not to the point where I am an absolute psychopath.
Someone please help me understand.
