    Default Let's play a creativity game!

    Imagine you own a business. You have 16 employees each representing one of the 16 personality types. There are as many tables, chairs and rooms as you want. How would you seat each of the employees in a way that you think would make them get the most work done, the most efficiently? (For example, you might seat all the STs together because you think they would work well together. And you might separate them from the other personality types and put them in the dark, cold basement!)

    You're not going to like my answer...

    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.

    make all the opposite functions sit accross from each other and be handcuffed together, force all the NTs and NFs to take beurocratic jobs and the SJs to take creative jobs, force the SPs to do office work.

    Have all the Fs on one side of the office and all the Ts on the other, and have a room with the sign ENTP on it, that locks from the outside.

    A big circle table in the center of a room and this is the order they're all sitting in: ENTJ, INTP, INTJ, ENTP, ISTJ, ESTP, ESTJ, ISTP, ESFJ, ISFP, ISFJ, ESFP, INFJ, ENFP, ENFJ, INFP

    What do you have against us, huh? What in the world did we ever do to you?

    What exactly makes them my ISTJ and ESTJ? They're guardians, I don't get them. I'd rather sit next to you.

    I wouldn't know how to arrange by mb type b/c it's not a strong science. How do I know what are the opposite functions when someone may have 50% sensing and another 62% feeling functional preference? Of course even my cat could pick a thinking versus feeling type out. Sometimes it's not clear, well, most of the time it's not clear, what people prefer, especially workers.

    If I had to use this model for management to be productive I would summons those who wanted or liked group dynamics to brainstorm ways for the gang to work best. Then, or simultaneously, I would ask for ideas from the group regarding sustenance, what would it take to keep people together for long periods of time, then I would ask the others remaining, how many wanted to be in a different job, and then I'd fire them. j/k
