You probably noticed that, in your workplace, everyone has their own personality and nobody reacts the same way when facing a situation. This is perfectly normal since people have ways to act on their own.
However, it can sometimes be difficult to know how to act with a person having a personality diametrically opposed to ours. This may even lead to conflicts at work. Of course, conflicts may also develop between two people with similar personalities. There’s not a situation that predisposes to conflict more than the other.
At beenote®, we have all been evaluated by the psychometric instrument MPO (Management and Performance in Organizations) so that all team members can work in harmony. With this test, we’re able to understand better the personalities and the ways that people work.
This test also allows managers to determine if an employee has the right profile to fill a specific position. The results of this test also allow us to adapt our behavior to a person because we know his personality and we understand better the reasons why this person act a certain way.
This is what inspired me writing a series of articles on the personalities that we find at work, particularly in the context of meetings.
These articles aren’t a way to show that certain personalities are better than others since it’s not the case. They are rather a picture of different personalities and a way to give advice to people to enable them to face the specific challenges of each personality.
The first article of the series will focus on the introverted personalities. You’ll learn to recognize an introverted person. You’ll also discover how today’s society favors extroverts.
If you’ve met leading figures in your career or you’ve experienced a conflict of personalities, please let us know!
