    Part 1:
    From my opinion INFJ personality best suited for remote location/virtual workplace situation. INFJ get energised by spending time alone. Very organised and insightful. INFJ personality leader find joy in uncovering new solutions for other people’s problems and will be the most dependable members in a team. The remote workers INFJ are great leaders who are ready to coach teammates on achieving more in life and career. The introverts in team will find the experience of working with INFJ leader or manager life-changing, and they’ll always compare future managers with INFJ type leaders.

    Part 2:
    Both individuality and conformity involve behaviors which are related with the expression of one’s feelings and thoughts. People are continually adjusting among individuality and conformity. Individuality and conformity work both offer significant benefits. For example, team members can be highly efficient when they’re working alone, but frequently participating in projects together boosts trust and morale. As with anything, you can in fact have too much of a good thing. If your team is constantly collaborating, they can feel like they’re wasting precious heads-down time. If they’re always working alone, they don’t have the opportunity to learn from their colleagues. If this sounds tricky, it’s because it is, and there’s not a formula or equation for guaranteeing perfect harmony between team collaborations and individual contributions. The important thing is to strike a balance that works well for your team. Balanced team have clear roles and responsibilities which is agreed upon. The right blend of people and skillsets will be present.

    Part 3:
    Successful organizational structures define each employee’s job and how it fits within the overall system. Businesses of all shapes and sizes use organizational structures heavily. They define a specific hierarchy within an organization. A successful organizational structure defines each employee’s job and how it fits within the overall system. Put simply, the organizational structure lays out who does what so the company can meet its objectives.
    The “big five” are broad categories of personality traits. OCEAN (openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness, and neuroticism). While there is a significant body of literature supporting this five-factor model of personality. It is important to note that each of the five personality factors represents a range between two extremes. For example, extraversion represents a continuum between extreme extraversion and extreme introversion. I believe these traits would be impacted if the work environment were to be changed to a strictly structured physical workplace setting. Behaviour involves an interaction between a person’s situational variables. The situation that a person finds himself or herself plays a major role in how the person reacts. I believe that changing to a strictly structured physical workplace setting may have an impact on the five traits. As people put into different environment, they tend to become less or more extraverted, less or more neurotic, and less or more open to the experience. In the real world, most people lie somewhere in between the two polar ends of each dimension
