    3. Individual and Group Behavioral Theories Applied to the Workplace

    INTP personalities, in my opinion, will be most suited in remote location/virtual team workplace circumstances. Working from home necessitates an independent and loyal personality. Because there will be no supervision like in a regular job. Individual must be organised, self-sufficient, and faithful in carrying out their assigned tasks.

    Because we may not receive appropriate direction or coaching from our superiors most of the time when working electronically, the individual must be an abstract thinker, rational, and objective focused. Although INTP personalities are introverted, they can mingle with a limited group of familiar teammates that share common aims, interests, or connections. These are the people who can make decisions based on logic, objectives, and analysed evidence rather than personal feelings. They are also creative thinkers.

    How does the balance between individuality and conformity affect individuals in a team environment? How much structure do you feel is appropriate for a successful team?

    The team will benefit from a balance of individuality and conformity that is neither extreme individualism nor severe uniformity. It is necessary since it will lead to team success. For example, if everyone has an opportunity to speak up, it generates ideas and solutions that will help the team succeed. The balance of originality and conformity allows individuals to speak freely, and everyone shows respect by listening and paying attention, resulting in a psychologically comfortable environment inside the team.

    For the case working remotely, I think the best structure would be horizontal organisation structure due to the nature of mostly working individually, this gives employees more responsibility.

    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?

    • openness

    The majority of high organisational performers are bored by workplace routine and the organization’s low level of creativity enhancement. Complex organisations offer few opportunities for new ideas to be implemented. When there are hierarchical systems in the workplace, it limits employees’ innovation while keeping them comfortable.

    • Conscientiousness

    High performers in the organisation tend to organise their adventures properly. Well-structured organisations comprised of conscientious individuals work well due to the organization’s preparedness as the organisation is efficiently organised and guides the goal achievement-based Workplace. Individuals are focused on achieving the organisational aim.

    • Extraversion
    • Extraversion is characterised by excitability, friendliness, talkativeness, aggressiveness, and a high level of emotional expressiveness (or extroversion). People that are extraverted are outgoing and thrive in social situations. When they are in the presence of others, they become energised and happy.

      Low extraversion (or introversion) people are more reserved in social circumstances and have less energy to expend. Introverts frequently need time alone and in silence to “recharge” after engaging in social activities.

    • Agreeableness

    Individuals with the highest level of agreeability in the organisation are always ready to carry out activities and ensure peaceful coexistence. Individuals in the organisation exhibit a great level of patience and are more concerned with the organisation than with personal interests. Individuals with low agreeableness scores are prone to conflicts and self-interest.

    • Neuroticism

    • Individuals with high levels of neuroticism are typically gloomy in organisations, with a lot of sadness, negative feelings, and psychology. When negative emotions are activated, they perform poorly and are more likely to develop anxiety, aggressiveness, and depression. Individuals who suffer from neuroticism are frequently fragile and weak under stressful situations. Neuroticism influences others around us as well as people’s perceptions of the world.
