This project revolves around personality tests, and the use of these when putting together a work related team. The project is based on the MBTI-test which is designed by Katharine Cook Briggs and Isabel Briggs Myers. This test arises from Jung’s typology and his description of these. The project outlines the MBTI-tests understanding of personality, and it is furthermore investigated which issues that the specific understanding of personality may have, when discussing this in a work team related debate. Trait theory and situationism are used as instruments in the discussion of personality understanding. Davies and Harrés positioning theory is drawn into the discussion to put the issues revolving the use of the MBTI-test in another perspective. Furthermore is Belbins Role playing theory used to supplement the MBTI-tests understanding of how a successful work team is put together. The project concludes that the MBTI-test sees personality as being an individual static and inherent entity. This can be seen as problematic since it does not ascribe the situation as having an impact on behavior. The MBTI-test and Belbins Role Playing Theory sees balance as the primary factor for a successful work team. Attributing the term balance with such importance, can be seen as a problematic, since the definition of the term is vague. This combined with the fact that the MBTI-test and Belbin do not ascribe the situation of importance can be criticized in the perspective of Positioning theory and situationism.
