A few weeks ago my husband took a personality profile - not Socionics obviously. Well today his office did a STRONG Fe team-building workshop together. His office is ENTp big boss, ISFp middle boss, and then the rest of them are ESFj, ISTp (my husband), ENFp, and INFj.
So the ENTp and the ISFp - the two bosses - put "consistency" (which sounds kind of Fi-ish in the description) as their most hated trait. Guess who had it as their most valued trait? And then they had something that sounded kind of like flexibility and sounded like Ne as a trait they didn't like. Guess who had that listed as a strong value?
Today, they had to do a bunch of Fe type activities like pick up a photo and talk about the feelings the photo gives them and how it relates to their group.
My husband left early. He is really upset. They said that there was no such thing as a bad profile but they aren't acting like that.
I hate that people are using personality tests at work. They assumed the person who values "consistency" (which sounds like Fi) is whiney. And they thought people who are flexible are too "go with the flow"ish and aren't strong enough to stand up to people. They're putting values of "good" and "bad" on people's values - they aren't looking at it in a fair, balanced way. But then I value "consistency" so what do I know? I'm probably just whining.
So my husband didn't do well in this exercise.
Has anyone else had to work with personality profiling at work?
