(I did do a search for this but did not find a similar thread)
I came across the 'Belbin' team roles (e.g. Belbin) as part of a management training and recently came back to it as part of project work to try and make sense of why I am getting nowhere with the project (Turns out it's not role or type related but I am just a lazy ***? Who'd have thought?)
Anyway I am wondering if you guys have any thoughts on correspondence between the roles and the MBTI types/functions.
It is explicitly stated that they don't 'exactly' correlate especially as different people can play different roles at different times depending on the team, situation etc but I think there must be a link between 'preferred' or 'common' roles and type.
For example I am quite a strong ENTP and would never feel comfortable with the 'Completer Finisher' role (though strangely 2 bosses - both ISTJs - have thought this is what I am - very meticulous and detail orientated! I'm not - they're mistaking 'seeing the consequences of actions far into the future and as part of a system' (Ne/Ti) with 'getting bogged down in details' (Si/Te) I think...) I mostly carry out the 'Shaper', 'Monitor Evaluator' or (less so) 'Specialist' role in a team.
Does anyone have any thoughts on this? I tried to put together some functions/roles likelihood but got tied up in knots so thought I'd ask
