The balance of understanding and discussing personality types is a potential advantage to the effectiveness of a team’s work ethic and communication. Working in a team with members of different personality types that know how to work well with other personality types will achieve team effectiveness more efficiently than a team with a lack of understanding on their own and others’ personality types. It is predicted that the Truity's Type Finder Personality Test on personality types will have a strong, positive impact on overall team performance and team effectiveness. In addition, it can also be predicted that the team that takes the quiz and discusses their results will rate highest in team effectiveness. Through both quantitative and qualitative data, this exploratory study aims to prove the positive impact that personality type understanding has on communication, decision making, and overall team effectiveness.
