There’s no one you spend more time conversing with on a daily basis than your co-workers.
The people you work with directly and remotely are some of the most important people in your life, even if you’ve never met them in real life (thanks, Zoom!).
To mark the launch of the Stranger Things Season 4, Frank Recruitment Group got thinking about how Stranger Things’ lovable gang of misfits can be found in our own workplaces. What would the characters of this beloved TV show be getting up to if they were transported from the dual setting of a small Midwestern town/monster-ridden hellscape to your average office environment?
Using the Myers-Briggs test—a personality categorization methodology employed by a huge number of businesses worldwide—Frank Recruitment Group has matched your favorite Stranger Things characters up with ten of the most common personality types found in offices across the globe today.
Is your desk-mate an Eleven or a Mike? Recognize anyone from your own workplace? You can even apply these to yourself!
Myers-Briggs Type: The Defender (ISFJ)
The office caregiver. Caring, thoughtful, and worries about their colleagues. Brings in baked goods for everyone, although they’re usually burnt. Their pride and strong work ethic make them a valuable addition to any team, and they’re known to go to great (read: unusual) lengths to get the best results. Their deep investment in both their work and their colleagues can leave them a little frazzled sometimes, so make sure you’re looking after them the way they look out for you. They’re also the one who puts up all the holiday decorations. Big fan of fairy lights.
Myers-Briggs Type: The Virtuoso (ISTP)
Practical. Down to earth. Most likely found next to the coffee machine. A born, if sometimes reluctant, commander and protective of their team. The Hopper is a no-nonsense, learn-by-doing type who leads from the front, and won’t get caught asking their colleagues to do something they wouldn’t do themselves. The Hopper gets things done, even if they tend to work to their own schedule. Don’t bother setting up any meetings with them before lunchtime; they will not attend. Willing to bend the rules if it means doing the right thing (like going over corporate’s head or breaking into a morgue), and probably needs to put a little more effort into their work-life balance.
Myers-Briggs Type: The Entrepreneur (ESTP)
Cautious, principled, and fiercely loyal. The Eleven can be unpredictable, but when they channel their white-hot passion into their work, you see their exceptional talents shine. The Eleven is a true natural with heaps of determination and resilience. A fast learner, they’ll often have had an unconventional path into their role, and are always eager to listen and develop as a result. Remember, friends don’t lie; they also don’t eat other people’s lunch from the communal fridge.
Myers-Briggs Type: The Advocate (INFJ)
Open-minded and sensitive, The Mike has a strong moral compass and a commitment to doing right by others. Their optimism can occasionally get them in over their heads, but they’re mature enough to admit when they’re wrong and learn from those around them. They’re extremely dedicated to their work and will stick with a project even when it looks totally doomed. A bit of a romantic, they’re known to harbor the occasional office crush.
Myers-Briggs Type: The Entertainer (ESFP)
The office clown, their gung-ho nature and goofy charm make them well-liked around the office. Not necessarily the safest pair of hands, their heart is always in the right place. Even though they don’t always make the best decisions, they’re truly the soul of the team. Someone accidentally set fire to the shared microwave? It was probably The Dustin (again).
Myers-Briggs Type: The Mediator (INFP)
The Will tends to be quiet, but incredibly passionate about what they do. Often underestimated, they might not always speak up in a group setting, but you can be sure that they’ve whipped up some great ideas behind the scenes. Resourceful and creative, they can be relied on to think outside of the box to find a solution to a challenge. Known to occasionally eat lunch in the bathroom.
Myers-Briggs Type: The Executive (ESTJ)
Logical, responsible, and a natural leader, level-headed Lucas is the first to come in with rationality and reason. They work hard and they like to maintain order wherever possible. A great foil to any Dustins on the team, The Lucas has high standards, thinks wisely about risk versus reward, and unlike many of their colleagues, can see the potential for chaos in making the office dog-friendly.
Myers-Briggs Type: The Consul (ESFJ)
A stickler for the rules, The Nancy always endeavors to be a gold star employee. They like to do things by the book and are motivated largely by their appreciation for recognition and approval, but that’s not to say they can’t stand up for themselves and their team when they have to. Studious, ambitious and driven, The Nancy’s intelligence and diligence are among their greatest strengths and make them an ideal colleague to have in your corner in a tight spot.
Myers-Briggs Type: The Logician (INTP)
Something of a dark horse around the office, The Max is terse, private, and often pessimistic. They may not always be the life of the office party, often opting to spend their free time on unconventional hobbies, but they are steadfast and brave when it comes to helping out their team and making bold choices. Don’t expect them to stop by your desk for a chat often, but you can bet they’ll be super loyal once you get to know them.
Myers-Briggs Type: The Adventurer (ISFP)
Sociable, popular, and never seen to have a bad hair day, this chilled-out colleague has hidden talents. Though they may not necessarily appear to be a natural mentor, beneath their aloof exterior lies an unconventional authority figure. They have a soft spot for the underdogs on their team and will shed a little of their too-cool-for-school attitude to pitch in when needed. Perhaps their greatest strength is their ability to own their mistakes and their drive to grow and improve.
“Delving into these personality types gives us a really fascinating insight into the fantastic diversity of the modern workplace, the ways we can work together with our colleagues, and the strengths they each bring to our teams,” said Zoë Morris, President at Frank Recruitment Group.
“Inspiration and motivation at work come in so many forms, from your favorite TV shows to a co-worker who always goes that extra mile for their team, and I’ve no doubt that this new series will bring us more valuable life lessons. From Eleven’s loyalty and Joyce’s perseverance to Will’s creativity and Dustin’s enthusiasm, I think we can all take something away from StrangerThings to empower us to be our best selves in our professional lives.”
“Also, I can only hope this exercise helps settle any arguments about who gets to be Eleven at the next office Halloween party.”

On Monday, December 12, FOX will air two back-to-back episodes of the thrilling series. Yep, you heard right—two hours of The Cleaning Lady are coming at you to wrap up the extraordinary and gripping second season!

When Does ‘Firefly Lane’ Season 2 Come Out?
The wait is almost over!
Netflix is allowing fans to reunite with the Firefly Lane girls on December 2, 2022!
FireFly Lane Season 2 Part 1 will debut on Friday at 12 a.m. PT (3 a.m ET and 2 a.m. CT) on the streaming service, and while that may be very late in the night, the good thing is you’ll have all weekend to catch up with Tully (Katherine Heigl) and Kate (Sarah Chalke).
Why Is Kate Mad at Tully at the End of Firefly Lane Season 1?
The biggest question on everyone’s mind is why is Kate so mad at Tully. At the end of the first season, it’s revealed that Kate’s father, Bud, died, but when her best friend Tully arrives at the church, Kate tells her that she has “some nerve showing up here.” Season 2 Part 1 will hopefully answer what led to the rift between Kate and Tully in 2004/2005.
How Many Episodes in Firefly Lane Season 2 Part 1?
The season will have a total of nine episodes.
Part 2 of the season is set to arrive sometime in 2023 with episodes 10 through 16.
Who Died on Firefly Lane Season 1?
Bud, Kate’s father, passed away in the first season. Kate and Tully are at his funeral when it’s revealed that they are not on speaking terms anymore despite a decades-long friendship.
Firefly Lane Season 2 Cast
The key cast of the upcoming second season includes:
- Katherine Heigl – Tully Hart
- Sarah Chalke – Kate Mularkey
- Ali Skovbye – ’70s Tully Hart
- Roan Curtis – ’70s Kate Mularkey
- Ben Lawson – Johnny Ryan
- Beau Garrett – Cloud/Dorothy Hart
- Yael Yurman – Marah
- India de Beaufort – Charlotte/Charlie
- Greg Germann – Benedict Binswagner
- Jolene Purdy – Justine Jordan
- Ignacio Serricchio – Danny Diaz
Firefly Lane Season 2 Synopsis
What could possibly have ended the tight-knit thirty year friendship of Tully and Kate, our “Firefly Lane Girls Forever?” We’ll learn the answer this season — but first — Kate grapples with the painful aftermath of Johnny’s ill-fated trip to Iraq, while Tully faces a lawsuit after walking away from her talk show, and must start her career over from the bottom. This leads her to search for answers about who she is and where she comes from — including a quest to find the father she never met, against the wishes of her secretive hippie mother, Cloud. In the ’80s, we see Kate and Johnny first fall in love, creating more than a little drama in the newsroom where they work, as Tully’s career rises and she spars (and flirts!) with cocky sportscaster Danny Diaz. She just might have met her match — that is, if they can stop arguing for five minutes. While in the ’70s, teenage Kate and Tully struggle to keep their friendship together as Cloud goes to jail for dealing drugs and Tully goes to live with her grandmother, far away from Firefly Lane. As the girls face the tumult of high school apart, they know the one thing they really need is each other.

‘Emily in Paris’ Season 3—Premiere Date and Trailer
Netflix is giving Emily in Paris fans the best holiday gift of all—a brand new season.
The third season of the Paris-set dramedy is set to premiere on Wednesday, December 21.
Fans can also unwrap an early gift as the streamer just dropped the trailer for the new season, which reveals Emily Cooper (Lily Collins) is pulling double-duty in both her professional and personal life.
Her indecision has left her in a bit of a mess, as she’s now juggling two jobs—her old gig with Madeline (Kate Walsh) and a gig at Sylvie’s new agency (Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu). On top of it, her heart is also being pulled in two different directions as she’s torn between chef Gabriel (Lucas Bravo) and businessman Brit Alfie (Lucien Laviscount).
And based on the 2-minute trailer, her decisions will have plenty of consequences.
But don’t think that Emily isn’t carving out time for prioritizing life, as Parisians do, as she informs her gal pal Mindy (Ashley Park) that she’s all about “life” right now.
The work-life balance includes stunning vacations (and a balloon ride), incredible outfits, plenty of champagne, and much more.
As the trailer suggests, choose Paris… on December 21!
