People vary considerably in their desire to have contact with others, from very little to a great deal of interaction with others. Your Overall Interpersonal Needs score can tell us a lot about how your will likely perform on a team.
This month we'll look at those in the high range, which is a score between 39 and 54. These types are generally considered Active.
People who have scores in this range generally really enjoy being on teams and have strong positive feelings about teams. They like to be at the center of discussions and believe they can make a significant contribution to the team's efforts. Likewise, they often have high expectations for others on the team, wanting them to be active, engaged, and contributing members.
Active types are frequently energized by being on a team, and can expect to do their best work as part of a team. Active types generally do not worry much about who is on the team, and like to spend extra time with other team members, even outside of work.
One possible downside for Active types is spending so much time with the team's work that their individual responsibilities suffer. Other priorities might not receive the attention they need because working with the team is more interesting and stimulating.
