Workplace Personality Types & How They Support Each Other [Infographic]

workplace thumb

We often underestimate the diversity of a team (I’ll suspend all sports analogies for the time being). We often keep one team member in higher regard than the others. Maybe it’s just human nature, but let this be a reminder that we need different people on a team to balance and help each other. Just as we all have different strengths we also have different weaknesses.

A good team, a winning team, a solid team, is full of diversity.

Take a look at this insightful infographic on how different individuals interact with each other in a team environment:

    I love this kind of stuff. I’m a big proponent of myers-briggs and specifically Keirsey’s “Please Understand Me”. I think way too many organizations (especially churches) try to fit square pegs into round holes as if to say that accepting Christ (or working at the same company) somehow makes us all EXACTLY the same.

    I myself am a ‘dreamer’ and on occasion I’ve found ‘artists’ and ‘cheerleaders’ to work alongside. It’s amazing how efficient and fulfilled I become with the right people around me. Of course I’ve also been pegged as “the medic” from time to time and have worked for a ‘general’ who assumed/hoped everyone else is was a ‘workhorse’. Needless to say the word ‘disfunction’ comes to mind…

    Love, love, love infographics and this one is my fav because it captures one of my favorite topics – personality styles. If we can understand people a little bit better using these assessment tools, I’m all for it.

    Following up on this…the research behind the graphic seems to be a little flimsy. NT’s (aka rationals) make up between 10-20% of the population but seem to be completely left out of any of the profiles. Meanwhile ISTJ’s take up two spots and SJ’s in general take up 4 overall…so what’s supposed to be a diagram on diversity really isn’t.

    I think they mean well and first glance at the graphic seems to make sense, but their tie into MBTI is where it falls apart.

      True. I wouldn’t expect a simple infographic to capture all the details. In general, however, it makes its point in grasping the idea of the different types of contributors a team has/needs, and not having a team of clones.
