KI Europe collaborated with personality experts OPP to find out more about the relationship between personality types and the environments in which we work, and whether this had an impact on people’s sense of wellbeing and productivity.
We were interested in finding out more about the links between personality type and office conditions, and to explore type differences for issues such as:
• Preferred or ideal working environment
• Satisfaction and happiness at work and how this is affected by the work environment
• Personalisation of the work area
• Likes and dislikes within the work environment
To find out more, OPP surveyed 311 people who knew their psychological type, as measured by the MBTI® – the world’s most popular and well-known personality assessment. Here we look at the results of this study which have suggested that different personalities work more effectively when certain environmental conditions are met.
