There 4 basic personality types. Everyone is a blend of these 4 types. However, they may have a “more” of one style and “less” of the other two/three styles. We would call the 4 types as ADAE personalities. It is Analytical – Driver – Amiable – Expressive. This is popularly known as the 4-quadrant personality model. The best way to get a good team is to have members from all the 4-quadrants and let the natural diversity grow. When dealing with this diversity we encounter communication problems which may lead to conflict. Hence, it is good to begin by first assessing what type you are yourself and then understand the personalities of other team members through their behaviour / response pattern.
