Communicating with Different Personalities
Tent City Scenario
Suppose you are the civil engineering foreman in change of a 24-person group whose charter is to erect 3,000 tents in ten days. Based on their resumes, you selected four people (two men, two women) to be team chiefs of six-person details (4 X 6 = 24 group members).
The first one is Mary. She's an extrovert (ESTJ). The second is Joe, he's a sensing data gatherer (ISTP). The third is Shirley and she is a thinker versus a feeling-type (INTJ). Finally, the fourth one, Ted, is a judging versus a perceiving type of fellow (ENFJ).
There were going to be some tense, tough days ahead. Your work will have to be coordinated with utilities personnel, emergency workers, etc. Many stakeholders are involved.
Provide the scenario above, tell us how in this online discussion how you will communicate with each team chief when delivering complex information in a stressful situation. Propose effective communication techniques for the different personality types.
