How the preferences respond
- Thinking (T’s) will tend to want to get going with the project.
- Feeling (F’s) will want to spend more time establishing relationships and group identity.
- Judgers (J’s) will structure the group around the task.
- Perceivers (P’s) will structure it around information gathering and the process.
- Sensing (S’s) will work at an orderly, steady pace.
- Intuitives (N’s) will work in bursts.
- Sensing (S’s) will look at past experiences and current realities.
- Intuitives (N’s) will scan the possibilities with the future in mind.
- Extraverts (E’s) will spontaneously network with other team members-updating others and asking for other’s progress.
- Introverts (I’s) will dig deep into the project without informing others.
Note: Update meetings are essential when E’s and I’s work together. Otherwise E’s will complain that they don’t know what the I’s are “up to”.
- Thinkers (T’s) will be slower to respond to the conflict than Feelers (F’s). However, once recognized the Thinkers (T’s) will respond to the situation in a straightforward problem solving mode-intent on finding the most logical solution.
- Feelers (F’s) will be aware of the conflict and more affected by it. They will work as peacemakers-seeking a solution with attention to personal and emotional issues.
- Judgers (J’s) tend to receive much satisfaction from finishing the project.
- Perceivers (P’s) may be disappointed in the outcome and time needed to adequately complete the project.
