Understanding How You Work Individually and as Part of a Team

I have never been personality profiled as part of the employment screening process, however have definitely participated in one form of testing or another for the purposes of team building. I’m going to discuss two types of preference testing which we undertook as part of team building activities in the introductory week of my MBA. I emphasise that these tests are not personality tests, but rather preference tests, in that they identify your preference in the way you interact with others, make decisions, etc. I do find that some of my results have changed over the years and that this is largely to do with the type of role I am and the types of responsibilities I am required to carry out at the time of testing.
