Workplace Personality Types

Workplace Personality Types

Do you agree that human issues are the most difficult to deal with in the workplace?

Sometimes, the issues could be due to the tardiness of certain colleagues. Other times, it could be due to miscommunication and a million other reasons that cause human issues in the workplace. 

However, it is not good to just let it be and let the human issues accumulate to a level of no return. A great way to ensure that you have a team that enjoys working together is to have a team of healthy egos that complement each other and grow together. The best way to create such a team is to use personality tests. 

From personality tests, you can gather insights about your team(s) strengths, preferences and weaknesses. From the results that you get, you can see how the members in your team(s) working preferences are like and also make better decisions to have a team that complements and bonds well with one another.

THE BIG FIVE PERSONALITY TEST is a well known personality test that measures the following 5 traits in a person. 

Openness – How open a person is to new ideas and experiences
Conscientiousness – How goal-directed, persistent, and organized a person is
Extraversion – How much a person is energized by the outside world
Agreeableness – How much a person puts others’ interests and needs ahead of their own
Neuroticism – How sensitive a person is to stress and negative emotional triggers

Fun fact: At Krowme, we also took the Big Five personality test and gained some very interesting insights.

To name a few,

  1. Our support team members love getting things done
  2. Our Research and Development team members are open-minded and love experimenting
  3. Our sales team is more on the extroverted side (Not a surprise, however, there are definitely plenty of introverted sales people out there who are great at their job).

Remember to keep track of the Personality Test Scores

Remember to also track your colleagues’ scores, so you can make better decisions for your company! 

You can easily use Google Forms to create your form. Here are the steps to create a form on google. 

However, if you are too lazy to create your own form, here is a free Personality Test Results form that you can use. 

Feel free to send this form to your colleagues. All responses also will be sent to your email inbox (do inform your colleagues what email address you want them to send to).
