Jonathan Grubb has an interesting post to describe 8 types of meeting attendees which he has identified. I recongize some of the types and also agrees with his funny comment. Here are the 8 types that he mentioned:

  • The Talker
  • The Boss
  • The Sigher
  • The Lurker
  • The Stealth Lurker
  • The Meanderer
  • The killer
  • The productive, reasonable contributor

Not only the post is interesting, the readers have contributed some meeting attendees type as well, like:

The “I Dont Understand”
