Auditors frequently encounter various types of clients with personalities ranging from shy to overzealous. The personalities and behaviors are oftentimes topics of discussion. However, in this article, I would like to discuss auditor personality types. I believe that there are at least 4 “Audit Personalities”.
This is the auditor that “knows everything”. This individual asks few questions when meeting with clients. The Arrogant Auditor believes that s/he has a good relationship with clients, when in actuality clients hate to see him coming.
The Apprehensive Auditor is very smart, however, this individual has yet to develop the confidence needed to effectively communicate with clients.
Push Over Auditor
This auditor is very friendly, loved most clients, but respected by few. This auditor oftentimes has an outgoing personality, but is ineffective in obtaining information and documentation from clients.
The Effective Auditor is one who manages relationships with clients in a respectful and efficient manner. Clients may or may not like this individual, however, s/he is respected for not only his knowledge but his soft skills.
Which type are you?
Can you be more than one?
Can you think of any more auditor personality types?
