These five characters below from "Friends," "Game of Thrones," "Big Bang theory," and other television shows make for great entertainment. The same cannot be said, however, about their ability to be bosses; their personalities and traits simply do not allow it.
Rachel Green from "Friends." Regardless of skill or suitability, anyone with good looks and fashion sense would get hired by Rachel.
This can be problematic especially when the person hired is not right for the job and has no experience or knowledge whatsoever on what to do. She would realize too late her mistake and find it difficult to get herself out of the pickle she's landed herself in.
Isobel "Izzie" Stevens from "Grey's Anatomy." Izzie is a sweetheart but she would be too emotionally invested in your life that it can get annoying and overwhelming.
For her, work and personal life are not separate entities. She would be interested in your personal life, family, romantic life, and hobbies.
She would also find it very difficult to fire unworthy employees. She would give second and third chances just to put off the difficult sacking.
Leonard "Bones" McCoy from "Star Trek." Bones does not work well under pressure. You can half expect him to be panicking and grumbling while assigning work and doing work.
It would be hard to work for someone who does not exhibit an aura of confidence on the job. "Damn it, man," you would undoubtedly hear him say to you in an exasperated tone.
Joffrey Baratheon from "Game of Thrones." He would kill everyone off or in this case, fire everyone for childish reasons. One wrong move, one wrong look—simply breathe—and you are out of a job.
It would also feel like you are not even working solely for Joffrey but for his mother too. "I'll tell mother," he would say threateningly.
Sheldon Cooper from "Big Bang Theory." Sheldon would do everything in the workplace. There would be no point to your existence as a subordinate or an employee when you work for him.
Not only would he distrust you to accomplish the job but he would want everything done his way or not done at all. There is no boss; there is only Sheldon.
