rsidneysmith So much of personal #productivity is about knowing yourself. It’s personal. That’s what we’ll be discussing today!… https://t.co/Fdee9tt2Pd Thu Jan 12 01:08:00 +0000 2017
DerekTac @rsidneysmith Doing well, yourself? #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:08:27 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @DerekTac Glad to hear, Derek! I’m doing pretty well today, thanks. :) #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:08:50 +0000 2017

DerekTac @ShannonRenee Nice! My wife and I made our own vision boards and have them pinned on the wall in the bedroom :) #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:09:08 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @nmhouston Excellent! #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:09:20 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck My #productivity success has been clearing a backlog of little things and writing blog /newspaper content. #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:09:42 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith Q1: What are some personality types, or frameworks? (e.g., MBTI, DISC, Enneagram, etc.) Explain what you know.… https://t.co/FKmHeLkNqN Thu Jan 12 01:10:01 +0000 2017
AdamBrownEDU A1. I am here to learn. I do not know. #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:10:53 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee RT @rsidneysmith: Q1: What are some personality types, or frameworks? (e.g., MBTI, DISC, Enneagram, etc.) Explain what you know. #prodchat… Thu Jan 12 01:10:56 +0000 2017
michelle1908 A1a: I’m a certified facilitator for MBTI, although I haven’t done much facilitating. I’m familiar with DISC to. #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:11:33 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee A1 I’m most familiar w/ Myers-Briggs, MBTI #ProdChat Thu Jan 12 01:11:52 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck A1 Myers-Briggs is the first one that comes to mind #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:12:10 +0000 2017
michelle1908 A1b: They are great tools for self-awareness and understanding others and how to interact more effectively #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:12:12 +0000 2017
nmhouston A1. The MBTI has been very useful to me, in understanding myself and especially what goes on in committees/teams. #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:12:24 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A1: Enneagram #prodchat https://t.co/zkjX1ms4TI Thu Jan 12 01:13:20 +0000 2017
nmhouston A1. More recently I’ve been studying the Enneagram, which I’m also finding very valuable at the psychological/spiritual level #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:13:38 +0000 2017
JKatzaman A1 I put no stock in personality types, esp Myers Briggs, which is based on false assumptions yet still promoted. #ProdChat Thu Jan 12 01:14:23 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A1: DISC #prodchat https://t.co/b6vxRxeJrv Thu Jan 12 01:14:25 +0000 2017
nmhouston A1 I’d count Strengths Finder in this category too #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:14:57 +0000 2017
DerekTac RT @rsidneysmith: Q1: What are some personality types, or frameworks? (e.g., MBTI, DISC, Enneagram, etc.) Explain what you know. #prodchat… Thu Jan 12 01:15:45 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee A1 I’ve taken the MBTI a few times; last time was 6 yrs ago & it was the most insightful & useful b/c of the tester #ProdChat Thu Jan 12 01:16:47 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith Q2: Have you ever taken a proctored or online personality type test? (e.g., https://t.co/OwbmJYgEBr) What did you l… https://t.co/coeR2iwfTN Thu Jan 12 01:17:01 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A1: Keirsey Temperament Sorter #prodchat https://t.co/vELs4nCttl Thu Jan 12 01:17:17 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A1: Keirsey Temperament Sorter #prodchat https://t.co/vELs4nCttl Thu Jan 12 01:17:17 +0000 2017
nmhouston A1 @gretchenrubin has a useful 4 type framework outlined here (and topic of forthcoming book) https://t.co/mmw73tso6t #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:17:21 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @nmhouston @gretchenrubin Yes, she outlined it originally in Better Than Before. Very interested framework. #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:17:50 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A2: In preparation for today’s #ProdChat, I took the 16Personalities test, and I’m an ESFJ – A according to them, b… https://t.co/YSfT7E3mVE Thu Jan 12 01:18:00 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee A1 All types of instruments provide insight. They are most useful when trained tester can offer meaning & context to results #ProdChat Thu Jan 12 01:18:07 +0000 2017
JKatzaman A2 I’ve taken Myers and read a few times since that the creators weren’t even trained in their field. #ProdChat Thu Jan 12 01:19:00 +0000 2017
AdamBrownEDU A2. It was more of a confirmation of what I felt it would say.. balanced #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:19:14 +0000 2017
xianfox A2: Every personality test I’ve ever taken has simply reaffirmed what I expected the results to be. #ProdChat Thu Jan 12 01:19:17 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A2: I’ve taken a wide variety of personality type indicators. The Big Five Personality test is probably the most accurate. #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:19:17 +0000 2017
nmhouston A2 I took the official MBTI w/full day workshop with ~100 people. Very clarifying as to why we each think our way is “right” #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:19:44 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A2: It is sometimes mistaken for astrology, broad descriptions. You have to ignore that and look at the psychology underpinning. #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:20:41 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck A2 I took a Myers – Briggs online years ago. That’s been it. #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:21:17 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A2: The analysis is only as good as you’re understanding of the personality type categories. I think Keirsey understood it best. #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:21:55 +0000 2017
nmhouston A2 Re productivity,the MBTI N/S (intuitive/sensing) very useful for why certain tasks are easy/challenging for different people #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:22:05 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee A2 I took https://t.co/17scMjriHn test today. There are some differences between it & my MBTI from 6 yrs ago. Hmmm #ProdChat Thu Jan 12 01:22:13 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A2: Also, I’ve taken the MBTI proctored several times and different each time. Never step in the same river twice. #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:22:45 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee A2 I prefer proctored tests b/c I like to ask questions & gain clarity about the results. #ProdChat Thu Jan 12 01:23:58 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith Q3: How much do you feel personality affects productivity? #prodchat https://t.co/QzYbl9fq8M Thu Jan 12 01:24:01 +0000 2017
nmhouston A2 @gretchenrubin ‘s four types help understand dutifulness, resistance, procrastination, rebellion. #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:24:29 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @ShannonRenee Yes, I like a well-trained proctor to guide the test. I’ve gotten the best results that way also. #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:24:47 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee RT @rsidneysmith: Q3: How much do you feel personality affects productivity? #prodchat https://t.co/QzYbl9fq8M Thu Jan 12 01:25:01 +0000 2017
AdamBrownEDU A3. I think personality affects the approach towards productivity. It is a reflection of your overall approach to life #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:25:42 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck A3 Personality would certainly come into play in terms of being productive as a team versus working solo. #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:25:44 +0000 2017
nmhouston @rsidneysmith very different, or mildly different? I am always very consistent, scores shift slightly but not type. #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:25:48 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A3: I think personality affects #productivity greatly! If you understand needs, wants & expectations, you’re set up for success. #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:26:05 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @nmhouston I’ve skewed more greatly toward extroversion from introversion, otherwise slight differences. #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:26:47 +0000 2017
nmhouston A3 I think personality is a huge factor in productivity. We aren’t all the same! Your method might not work for me, & that’s OK. #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:27:08 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee A3a Personality impacts everything, including productivity. There are hard charging go-go-go folks & then laid back folks. #ProdChat Thu Jan 12 01:27:19 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @nmhouston And, I think the move from I to E has been greater development of skills and experiences as a business owner & speaker. #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:27:30 +0000 2017
JKatzaman A3 Personality affects productivity. Some personalities are more comfortable with focused work at different times of the day. #ProdChat Thu Jan 12 01:27:47 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee A3b One is not better than the other, they are different. All personalities have strengths & deficiencies. #ProdChat Thu Jan 12 01:28:20 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee A3c The key is finding & playing to a person’s strength to get best/most out of them. #ProdChat Thu Jan 12 01:28:57 +0000 2017
nmhouston @rsidneysmith that totally makes sense. Context does influence us. #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:29:07 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee A3d There are times when extreme extroversion is needed & times when extreme introversion are best course of action. #ProdChat Thu Jan 12 01:30:12 +0000 2017
nmhouston A3 as a coach, understanding personality types helps me communicate with different clients & understand their perspectives/needs #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:30:20 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee A3e Knowing who to use to do what is the best way to maximize their productivity. #ProdChat Thu Jan 12 01:30:54 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @nmhouston I have a colleague that utilizes personality types in determining who the best entrepreneurs are going to be. #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:30:56 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith Join us for our next #Productivity Book Group live discussion! https://t.co/wQRfxI2YHl #prodchat https://t.co/g4DWqGzh31 Thu Jan 12 01:31:00 +0000 2017

rsidneysmith Q4: What areas of productivity are not affected by personality type? #prodchat https://t.co/vA5jDyjDN3 Thu Jan 12 01:31:01 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @nmhouston Wholly unscientific, but she’s able to estimate the successes (by internal metrics, at least) fairly accurately! #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:31:30 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee RT @rsidneysmith: Q4: What areas of productivity are not affected by personality type? #prodchat https://t.co/vA5jDyjDN3 Thu Jan 12 01:31:47 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A4a: I’m not sure there are many…if I could think of a few they would be… #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:32:47 +0000 2017
JKatzaman A4 It’s tough to separate personality type from productivity. Even with tight deadlines, some people deal better with that. #ProdChat Thu Jan 12 01:32:52 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A4b: most productivity systems and frameworks and apps/software don’t take personality into account. It’s very one size fits all. #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:33:19 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck A4 That’s a tough not. Pegging the negative is tricky. #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:33:38 +0000 2017
DerekTac Here’s my 16 Personalities result: Debater (ENTP-t) #prodchat https://t.co/XD89xxtDCL Thu Jan 12 01:33:45 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @DerekTac Know thyself, eh? :-D #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:34:11 +0000 2017
nmhouston A4 Perceptions of time & decision-making approaches are central to type distinctions, and to productivity. Can’t separate them. #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:34:33 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee A4 If productivity is our personal outcome, then it goes hand & glove w/ our personality & one can’t be separated from other #ProdChat Thu Jan 12 01:34:54 +0000 2017
DerekTac @rsidneysmith Learned a bit today about myself. I find not everything on this explanation to be true, but many are! #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:35:40 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A4c: What I see most with clients is people attempting systems that don’t fit their personality. #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:35:54 +0000 2017
nmhouston @rsidneysmith it is often used in career-counseling for probably similar reasons — identifiable traits valued in a profession #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:36:30 +0000 2017
PegGrafwallner RT @rsidneysmith: A4c: What I see most with clients is people attempting systems that don’t fit their personality. #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:36:52 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee A4 There may be times when I can go against my nature, but that’s not sustainable for long-term success. #ProdChat Thu Jan 12 01:37:08 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @DerekTac That’s what I felt about that test. The Big Five is more accurate, to me, for an online test. https://t.co/ShQq0lQiF9 #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:37:15 +0000 2017
nmhouston A4 some types are probably more drawn to the topic of productivity than others, too ;) #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:37:35 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith Q5: What do you think are the most productive personality types? #prodchat https://t.co/Bs4ujt1EZ0 Thu Jan 12 01:38:01 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee YES! Folks need to learn themselves & then play to their strengths for ultimate productivity & success. #ProdChat https://t.co/6HCnr7uDCV Thu Jan 12 01:38:16 +0000 2017
DerekTac @rsidneysmith Thanks, I’ll give that a shot! :) #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:38:53 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @nmhouston I remember when the HS counselor separated us into groups. Then, some of us got special treatment and others didn’t. #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:38:55 +0000 2017
DrFrankBuck A5 ISTJ #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:38:56 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee RT @rsidneysmith: Q5: What do you think are the most productive personality types? #prodchat https://t.co/Bs4ujt1EZ0 Thu Jan 12 01:39:19 +0000 2017
DerekTac @rsidneysmith I did a personality test in university that had colors. Do you/anyone else recall which one that is? I was orange. #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:39:50 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A5: I genuinely believe that society favors certain personality types, but that all types can be highly productive, and fulfilled. #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:40:12 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee A5 All personality types are productive in their own way. Some may be more obvious, open & loud about it LOL. #ProdChat Thu Jan 12 01:40:19 +0000 2017
nmhouston A5 All personality types are equally valuable — and can be equally productive. Framework helps reveal challenges/strengths. #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:40:24 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee A5 Most productive personality is subjective, based on the desired goals & objectives. #ProdChat Thu Jan 12 01:41:50 +0000 2017
nmhouston A5 for instance, some will find either big-picture visioning or detail-oriented work more comfortable, but we can all do both. #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:42:11 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @DerekTac A particular test comes to mind. I just did a quick search to find it but came up empty. I’ll keep thinking. #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:43:16 +0000 2017
nmhouston @rsidneysmith yes, also some types are more widely represented in the population (those statistics always fascinating to me) #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:43:35 +0000 2017
JKatzaman A5 All personality types can be productive. Contemplative types might be slower, yet more productive by making fewer errors. #ProdChat Thu Jan 12 01:43:42 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @nmhouston Statistics in generally are a fascination of mine lately. I think it’s all the Data Science talk in #tech these days. #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:44:06 +0000 2017
PegGrafwallner A5 & by being more reflective. Reflective can cause one to watch others; learn & then act #ProdChat https://t.co/ty5RKwiCuq Thu Jan 12 01:44:51 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith Q6: How do you handle working with different personality types to be most productive? #prodchat https://t.co/LvcE31aiuV Thu Jan 12 01:45:01 +0000 2017
nmhouston @rsidneysmith @DerekTac Emergenetics? (friend of mine was telling me about it recently) #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:45:21 +0000 2017
DerekTac @rsidneysmith Big Five Test was pretty good. They need to update their website though! #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:45:25 +0000 2017

DrFrankBuck A6 I think you have to focus more in the desired outcome and let people take the route that works for them. #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:46:23 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee A6 I work to learn my team members, putting the right personality on the right task gives us better outcomes. #ProdChat Thu Jan 12 01:47:02 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @DerekTac Haha…yeah, they could do well to get an CS undergrad redo their website. :-P #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:47:02 +0000 2017
nmhouston A6: By remembering that other people process information differently, and make decisions based on factors I don’t use. #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:47:39 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee A6b This can take more time, but it pays off in the long run. Folks are happy to stay in their lanes. #ProdChat Thu Jan 12 01:48:30 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @nmhouston @DerekTac Interesting stuff! I was likely thinking of Hartman, but it’s been a long time. https://t.co/VXZY8eLwBD #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:48:53 +0000 2017
nmhouston A6 practicing patience! studying type helps cultivate understanding of other ways of thinking and being #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:49:18 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee A6c This does’t mean I don’t challenge/stretch folks to move out of their comfort zones. I do it strategically. #ProdChat Thu Jan 12 01:49:41 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A6: I learned that by identifying your shortfalls and matching them to the strengths of your team, that productivity tends to soar.#prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:49:43 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A6a: The way you communicate has a great impact on team #productivity. Learn about the ways you upset/annoy others and quash them. #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:50:28 +0000 2017
DerekTac @nmhouston @rsidneysmith This may be it (Emergenetics). I took the test in an entrepreneurship course in university #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:50:37 +0000 2017
DerekTac Here’s my Big Five Project test result: #prodchat https://t.co/04YroGyRM7 Thu Jan 12 01:51:32 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith Q7: What might you do differently after #ProdChat, thinking about your own personality type? https://t.co/R8cwlO3mjQ Thu Jan 12 01:52:01 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee A6d I’m not gonna ask my numbers person to write a commentary or my designer to balance my budget. #ProdChat Thu Jan 12 01:52:10 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @DerekTac @nmhouston The AIC framework is also rather intriguing to me: https://t.co/izhDlGWPuy #ProdChat Thu Jan 12 01:53:19 +0000 2017
ShannonRenee A6e There are folks w/ hidden gifts/talents, I want them to have opportunities to grow & learn/do new things. #ProdChat Thu Jan 12 01:53:38 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @DerekTac @nmhouston I believe you can sign up at the bottom of that page to take the free assessment. #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:53:45 +0000 2017
JKatzaman A6 Make a point to be aware of others’ personalities and productivity traits. Then assign work accordingly w/ clear expectations. #ProdChat Thu Jan 12 01:53:47 +0000 2017

ShannonRenee Gotta run, it’s been a groovy #ProdChat this week. Thu Jan 12 01:54:22 +0000 2017
SeanJoyner @rsidneysmith A6: Every personality type has strengths. Learn to use them in the right roles and on the right projects. #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:54:41 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith @ShannonRenee Ha! Right? Focus on the strengths of your team, minimize their weaknesses! So, @mwbuckingham! :) #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:54:49 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith A7: I’m going to see about taking this Emergenetics test that @nmhouston introduced me to! Sounds interesting! Thanks! #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:55:40 +0000 2017
DerekTac @rsidneysmith @nmhouston No, it was more along these lines (although the article doesn’t say the test): https://t.co/BAChj9wlMf #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:55:44 +0000 2017
nmhouston A7 I’m going to figure out a better way to do or delegate or discard the tasks I’m not naturally good at #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:56:41 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith Next #ProdChat: January 25 – “Calendaring Versus Task Lists.” Join us! Have a great rest of your week, all! https://t.co/PzkprVyPr3 Thu Jan 12 01:57:01 +0000 2017

nmhouston @rsidneysmith especially for the kind of work you do. My friend went to a 5-day workshop & loved it #prodchat Thu Jan 12 01:57:59 +0000 2017
rsidneysmith Thanks, #productivity enthusiasts, for attending #prodchat! Join us in two weeks! @prodchat https://t.co/84KSfzAGkT Thu Jan 12 01:59:00 +0000 2017
nmhouston Thanks @rsidneysmith for another great #prodchat! This was a great topic! Thu Jan 12 01:59:18 +0000 2017
JKatzaman A7 Knowing when I work best, I need to concentrate more on fencing off that time to get things done. #ProdChat Thu Jan 12 02:00:47 +0000 2017
OmnipoTony @rsidneysmith @prodchat Agh I missed this chat but I’ll definitely be there next week. Here’s hoping there’s a recap tweet #prodchat Thu Jan 12 02:21:11 +0000 2017

caplady1225 Miss chat Class on wed but took the test my Myers brigs was intj. ENFJ-A on the site. Agree so far role diplomat.… https://t.co/FtwkvySr01 Thu Jan 12 03:04:31 +0000 2017
rogue_crayon99 A1: A lot of these tests are very similar and in a way, personality traits cobbled together form a predictable archetype. #ProdChat Thu Jan 12 03:13:14 +0000 2017
rogue_crayon99 A1: MBTI is more or less standard but more accessible albeit less rigorous/quick reference personality tests are also available #ProdChat Thu Jan 12 03:14:41 +0000 2017
