Givers are driven by the desire to help others and create success for the group.

Most of us can recall a time when we were touched by the generosity of another person. Perhaps they gave us advice, offered a job opportunity or helped us with a difficult task, all without expecting anything in return. These people are givers.

The keystone trait of the giver is that in most transactions they give far more than they get. They are generous with their knowledge and time, and they will often forgo personal credit for the good of a common goal. Their main focus is to provide value for others; having their help reciprocated is either irrelevant or a bonus. The way givers see it, helping other people is its own reward as it makes the givers themselves feel good too.

George Meyer, Emmy Award-winning writer for The Simpsons, is a classic example of a giver. Meyer routinely encouraged other writers to use his ideas without asking for personal credit. So, although he helped shape over 300 episodes of The Simpsons, he is only credited for 12. Nevertheless, what mattered more to him than keeping count of personal credit was seeing the show succeed. Meyer also invented the word ‘meh’, an expression of boredom, which was first used by Bart on the show and can today be found in the dictionary. However, even here Meyer was so unconcerned with claiming credit that he actually forgot it was he who had invented the word. The success of the show truly was his main objective.

Givers understand the benefits of collaborative achievement and strive to create abundance for as many people as possible.

Givers are driven by the desire to help others and create success for the group.
