Impact of Personalities and Diversity 2Part 1: Impact of Personalities on TeamsEach has a unique set of internal qualities that make up their character and outlines behaviors (Hitt, Miller, & Colella, 2015). Behavioral traits such as being shy, compassionate, andpersistent are what form a person's personality (Hitt, Miller, & Colella, 2015). When working as a team, diverse characters create an opportunity for success. The team's willingness to keep an open-mind and collaborate to embrace differing personality traits is critical to maintaining a highlevel of productivity. Personalities have a significant impact on the overall success of a team, so having each member complete a personality test gives insight into the work ethic and openness to new ideas (Hitt, Miller, & Colella, 2015). With the results from the personality test, we can analyze the impact the information has on the work of the team, and the impact character and abilities can have on an organization's performance. Personality Test ResultsThe personality test completed by Team A focused on extraversion, agreeableness, conscientiousness, emotional stability, and openness to experiences. The point of the personality test was to determine the strengths and weaknesses of each team member concerning character traits.Team A is made up of a diverse group of characters that have differences as well as commonalities.

Shevada and Billie are fairly kind, suspicious of the motivations of other people, trusting but speak their minds (Grohol, 2016). Based on the test, Cara is more likely to be suspicious of other's motives, interested in herself and unfriendly (Grohol, 2016). When it comes to conscientiousness, our team scored high, meaning that we are individuals that value self-discipline, aim to achieve success, are perfectionists, prefer to plan, avoid trouble, and viewed by others as reliable (Grohol, 2016). Suki, Erika, Billie, and Shevada scored high in the emotional stability category meaning that this group of people is well-adjusted, calm, and not easily rattled or stressed (Grohol, 2016). Cara's score in the emotional stability area was neutral, demonstrating that she is stable but may be affected by stressful or emotional situations (Grohol, 2016).
