I'm drafting the second part of an article on Hiring UX professionals
for Boxes and Arrows at the moment and researching people's thoughts
on the all important axis of personality when hiring UX folk.
Can you tell me whether you think that personality typing tests like
Myers Briggs or DISC are helpful to you in either hiring or working
with others in your discipline?
When thinking about the individual streams of Research, Information
Architecture, Interaction Design, Graphic Design and Writing, do you
reckon each of these should display any particular personality
attributes as you might find in typing tests like Myers Briggs?
The obvious answer is "Well, that depends on your context". But I
thought it would make an interesting discussion point here and then
summarized in the article. What are your thoughts?
