Personality Types: How To Identify The Different Kinds

Teaming

September 2017

A culture of teamwork is vital to the success of your business. It’s even pivotal when you’re racing against the clock to beat an escape room! We’ve talked about some necessary traits that every team player needs to be successful - humility, hunger, and awareness - while working in a group of various personality types, but what exactly are those personality types?

Here at Red Door, we’ve recently partnered up with The Predictive Index whose innovative personality assessment will not only help you to understand your own personality type, but will also help you to understand other behavioral drives and how different types will work together. The PI breaks these behavioral drives down to four simple categories: Dominance, Extraversion, Patience, and Formality.

DOMINANCE

“The degree to which an individual seeks to control his or her environment. Individuals who score high on this dimension tend to be independent, assertive and self-confident. Individuals who score low on this dimension tend to be agreeable, cooperative and accommodating.”


EXTRAVERSION

“The degree to which an individual seeks social interaction with other people. Individuals who score high on this dimension tend to be outgoing, persuasive and socially-poised. Individuals who score low on this dimension tend to be serious, introspective and reserved.”


PATIENCE

“The degree to which an individual seeks consistency and stability in his or her environment. Individuals who score high on this dimension tend to be patient, consistent and deliberate. Individuals who score low on this dimension tend to be fast-paced, urgent and intense.”

FORMALITY

“The degree to which an individual seeks to conform to formal rules and structure. Individuals who score high on this dimension tend to be organized, precise and self-disciplined. Individuals who score low on this dimension tend to be informal, casual and uninhibited.”
