    Hi Mr Param and fellow coursemates. Here is actually my answer. Kindly disregard the previous one.

    Question section 1:Using the Myers-Briggs Indicator methodology, what four letter code would best represent a personality best suited for this remote location/virtual team workplace situation .

    The ISTJ (introversion, sensing, thinking, judgement) is a four -letter code representing a personality best suited for remote location/ virtual team workplace situation. The ISTJ is an excellent model for the remote location or the workplace situation. ISTJ are the self-contented people who are efficient in handling tasks to completion. These people can operate efficiently from remote areas and on a virtual basis with much ease. ISTJ individuals primarily focus on completing the task with their total commitment and mostly prefer isolation to complete their jobs and do not rely on the social influences in the organization. The ISTJ individual majorly focuses on their roles and avoid distractions.

    Question section 2: How does the balance between individuality and conformity affect individuals in a team environment?

    Individualities and conformity are critical and, when used together, would facilitate the employees’ success in the organization. The workers must work within limits needed to comply with the conformity. Improving individualism results in the company’s growth brand and constant output in the organization.
    Improving individuality should be based on the critical rules and regulations of the company, despite being enhanced by factors such as the diverse communication styles and the methods of provision of solutions. Conformities in the current organizations include efficient communication, appropriate working hours and dressing codes. With the varying regulations from one organization to another, they should be satisfactory to the customers and limit the employees’ freedom.
    The employees in the organization would require changes in the regulations. Still, it would be necessary to abide by the organizational cultures until adopting the changes or facing the consequences of their actions. Individuality remains the central focus in organizational success, considering other organizational factors such as the regulations that influence the workforce operation.

    Question section 3 : How much structure do you feel is appropriate for a successful team?

    An effective workplace structure ensures the balance in the types of individualities of the employees, which facilitate the performance of tasks in the organization and achievement of the Organizational strategic ambitions.

    Question 4 : Considering the Big Five personality assessment model (OCEAN), to what extent do you believe these traits would be impacted if the work environment were to be changed to a strictly-structured physical workplace setting?

    The OCEAN assessment model involves five features: Openness, Conscientiousness, Extraversion, Agreeableness, and Neuroticism. Based on my assessment, these characteristics would impact the organization in the following ways:

    Openness– Openness to gaining experience. Most of the high organizational performers are bored by the workplace monotony and high low enhancement of creativity in the organization. Complex organizations provide limited opportunity for the incorporation of new ideas. When the Workplace has hierarchical structures, it limits the employees’ creativity, keeping them comfortable.

    Conscientiousness – High performers in the organization prefer the proper organization of their adventures. Well-structured organizations incorporated with high conscientiousness individuals perform well due to the organization’s preparedness as the organization is efficiently planned and guide the target achievement-based Workplace. The individuals are focused and target attaining the organizational goal.

    Extraversion – Excitability, friendliness, talkativeness, assertiveness, and high levels of emotional expressiveness are all characteristics of extraversion (or extroversion). 1 People with a high level of extraversion are gregarious and thrive in social circumstances. They become invigorated and delighted when they are in the company of others.
    People with low extraversion (or introversion) are more restrained in social situations and have less energy to exert. Introverts frequently require a period of solitude and silence to “recharge” after attending social activities.

    Agreeableness
    High-performance individuals with maximum agreeableness in the organization are always ready to carry out activities and ensure peaceful coexistence. The individuals practice a high level of patience in the organization and are more focused on the organization than personal interests. The individual with a low ranking in agreeableness is prone to conflicts and self-interest.

    Neuroticism – Individuals with high rates of neuroticism are mostly glooming in the organizations are majorly sad feeling negative feeling and psychology. They have low performance when the negative emotions are stimulated and have high chances of developing anxiety, aggression, and depression. The individuals who experience neuroticism are often vulnerable and weak in stressful situations. Neuroticism affects those in the surroundings and the view of the world’s individuals.
