These four Myers-Briggs scales are combined to form 16 different personality types, which help you be aware of a coworker’s general strengths, flaws, desires, and how you can best communicate with them.
- Extravert/Introvert – when you have downtime, do you naturally spend time with other people, or by yourself?
- Sensory/iNtutive – do you prefer information that is here right now, tangible and concrete, or possibilities, associations, and ideas?
- Thinking/Feeling – do you decide based on a consistent set of rules, or on your personal associations and empathy?
- Judging/Perceiving – do you prefer to have matters settled, or keep options open?
