I'm definitely a 'Playful' according to inspirational speaker, Allison Mooney. A couple of months ago I forced everyone in the office to complete a personality profile (out of pure curiosity) and the results were extraordinary. Those who'd always considered themselves similar were proven right but there were also a few surprises where compatibility was concerned which, as you'd probably expect, caused a few giggles.
At OnlyMarketingJobs.com it's fair to say we have a number of strong personalities in the office, and each one is incredibly different from the next. When I came across this article on Recruitment Buzz I simply couldn't resist categorising everyone so I thought I'd share it so you can do the same:
Personality Testing While employers have used personality tests for decades to streamline their hiring process and screen prospective candidates, there’s been criticism on the fairness of using tools like the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) or the Jung Typology Profiler for Workplace (JPTW), among others, especially if it means the results are used to screen out job applicants. While these tools may not be ideal for pre-employment, they can be valuable in getting to know existing team members a little better. By learning more about an employee drivers and goals, a manager is in a better position to develop talent within the company.

According to inspirational speaker Allison Mooney, all humans can be categorised into four personality types.
