Have you ever run a personality test with your team?

Kristen Roth Atlassian Team Aug 16, 2019

We all have individual personalities, which means misunderstandings at work are inevitable. Varied personalities mean varied work styles (do you like to work in silence or do you need some buzz around you?), different preferred methods of communication (want to be tapped on the shoulder or pinged in Slack?), and the list goes on!

At Atlassian, we like to say that our sixth and unofficial company value is “Seek first to understand.” It's a really great practice to establish, especially when it comes to understanding how to work best with your teammates. Our Jira Service Desk marketing team wanted to gain more insight into what makes each of their team members tick, so they ran personality tests!💡(Learn more about how they did it here.

What's your personality type and how does it affect you at work? Would you consider running a personality test with your team?
