This person is mostly seen saying 'Don't worry, it shall all be done!' without even moving his butt an inch.

Life is party for them and office is like the everyday morning party.

They are seen sleeping, relaxing or eating around their desk. More times than not, they are untrustworthy.

S/he loves talking about their life, wanting to share everything they did right from childhood till now.

If you become one of their victims you will be able to memorise the details of his/her life and you cannot do a thing about it.

They cut time by jabbering and blabbering and hence decreasing your productivity.

The motivational killers, these guys just love to pull you down.

They would never agree with your ideas, nor would they provide an alternate approach to complete them.

They are seen saying 'That won't work, nope.'

These people love to be their own love.

They are obsessed with their sense of being and feel the sexiest with their own presence.

They will flex their muscles for you to see their bod, show off their shiny hair and call themselves 'Hot' all the time!

These are the biggest people who just won't understand deadlines.

If you find a specimen of the above sort anywhere, just run!
