Here at Intern Pursuit, we believe in the value of understanding ourselves to better communicate with our teammates, customers, vendors, and in our personal lives. To that point, we use 16 Personalities when recruiting and implementing monthly personality activities into our culture. In simplified terms, the more extreme a person is on a particular trait, the better a predictor it is. For example, when we describe someone as being either an introvert or extrovert. The truth is these traits are continuous variables that we can fall into between the spectrum of introversion or extroversion. Research has show that the more to one of the extremes a person falls on a trait, the more consistently that trait will be a factor in his or her behavior.
