2The Impact of Personalities on an OrganizationOur team chose to take the Big Five Personality Test (via 123test.com). The test measures five major factors of personality along with the six facets that define each factor. Factor scores give a broader global description of the individual, while facet scores give a more detailed description of the specific traits of personality that make up the broad global description.The areas measured reflect characteristics relative to openness to experience, work ethic, extraversion, agreeableness, and natural reaction. Personality traits can have a major impact on ateam. The key is to find which personalities work best with one another. Many organizations find the Big Five Assessment useful in predicting whether a person would be a good fit in their organization.Personality Test ResultsAmanda Hemminger:Pertaining to openness, I ranked high.

I also enjoy flexibility in my work environment. In the extraversion category, I was given the highest rank. I prefer to be assertive, outgoing, friendly, and prefer to work with others in a team environment. I this category was most accurateespecially relating to the aspect of a team preference. Being compassionate, eager to please, and good natured fell in between in the agreeableness category along with being hard headed, competitive, and proud.
