Remote Work Round-Up
Nov. 16 2017
Have you ever taken a personality test? Whether it be Myers & Briggs, Riso-Hudson Enneagram Type Indicator, or any of the many free tests available on the internet, the results are supposed to determine how well rounded you are as a person, and help you communicate more effectively with "personalities" that are different from your own.
Inc. recently took a deeper look into the "Four Personality Types" in relation to remote workers, and they were shocked at the results.
"Because the four personality types assume everyone is working together at an office or manufacturing facility, they simply don't apply to a world where virtual reality threatens to make centralized offices themselves entirely obsolete."
Some of traits they DID find that applied to remote employees, included being self disciplined, introverted, not paranoid, a good salesperson, and technically competent.
