Melissa Taylor

Economic Alternatives, 2020, issue 1, 148-163

Abstract: Personality style is a popular topic. Extroversion has historically been celebrated while society has tried to cure introversion. Most individuals fall somewhere in the middle of the personality spectrum and possess both strengths and weaknesses related to their preference. A variety of personality styles are represented in every workplace and these can cause tension and conflict. Understanding the nuances associated with varying personality styles will allow organizations to accommodate the needs of individual employees leading to greater workplace productivity.
