    I'd wait until the situation actually occurred and I'd probably arrange them according to who works best together.

    One big room, put tables and dividers on wheels. Let the employees decide how to arrange furniture themselves. If work permitted... ask people to rearrange seating arrangement once a year.

    You have 16 different people. Who am I to say I know this person likes to work beside that girl while that guy rather hides in his little corner? People can figure out how to position themselves and create their own little "territories" to suit their needs. If they can't figure out something so simple, then they shouldn't be working for me. Why have tables and dividers on wheels? Easy relocation. For the first little while, I suspect there'll be some shuffling about especially for a new group of people who've never worked together. The wheels are there so people can move. No brooding resentment for being in the wrong spot when it's so easy to relocate.

    The reshuffling once a year is to keep things fresh. I don't want the development of little cliques and what not. Everybody should be able to work reasonably well in the group. Plus mixing it up keeps people on their toes (prevent them from sliding into too much monotony). I think once a year is a reasonable time frame for that... not too frequent to be too disruptive and not too spaced out so people are used to reshuffles.

Sometimes it's not clear, well, most of the time it's not clear, what people prefer, especially workers.
    Exactly! Personality and work habits isn't just limited to MBTI types. People are individuals, trying to fit them into limited type boxes is just silly and isn't going to work well.

    My answer would be something like this:

    A pentagram-shaped table, with an opening in the center for the ESFP to sit in.

    The other types would be situated as such:



    Do you get it?

    I think it would also go like this:

    Bottom section: Planners/Researchers/Developers

    Bottom right: Executives/Managers

    Bottom left: Public Relations

    Top right: Art/Advertising

    Top left: Logistics/Inspectors/Maintenance

    Center: Company President (You DID create it, after all)

    This is a "what would we each do if we created it" scenario. Although I don't mind being placed next to those two, I don't guess.

    I'd separate them into four groups. Each group would have one person who has the "Get Things Going" interaction style, one "In Charge", one "Chart The Course", and one "Behind the Scenes". (I'd probably set the In Charge types as project captains and have them pick one from each of the other styles.)

    Understanding Berens' Interaction Styles

    Then I'd have the "Get Things Going" types brainstorm the most awesome idea they could think of to fit with the company. I'd have them share it with the "Chart the Course" and "Behind the Scenes" types in their group, while the "In Charge" can go take a break somewhere. The "Chart the Course" type would then point out all of the ways that the plan is doomed to failure. The "Behind the Scenes" type would listen to both sides and help make a working plan out of the two viewpoints. Once those three had a plan that more or less worked I'd make the "In Charge" type project manager. They'd make out a time table and assign tasks and make sure everything got done along the way.

    Also I'd state what type of awards would be given out to the team that did the best. Then the four groups could compete with each other to turn out the best project.

    I would try to put conflicting types in the same vicinity and grab a bag of popcorn

    What options do I have in arranging the room? How many tables am I provided with? Are they round tables or square ones? Any cubicles? 16 chairs, I assume?

    Until I get the answers, I have to say I would put the extroverts toward the center of the room. Other than that, I would mix the N's and S's together because together they would be great.

    Sounds like

    "Get Things Going" = SPs
    "Chart the Course" = NTs
    "Behind the Scenes" = NFs
    "In Charge" = SJs

    Only thing is, we SPs won't be content to just come up with a plan, and we have a hard time "brainstorming". Best to let the NTs come up with a plan, the SPs implement it, the SJs manage it, and the NFs mediate the whole way through.

    Oh, yeah. Watch me rock. \m/
