The personality of remote
managers has a big impact
on how remote teams function
and deliver value.
Go ahead, find out what kind of
remote manager would you be
based on your Myers-Briggs
Personality Type!
Don't know your
personality type?
No problem.

As the manager of a virtual team, you can be
trusted to make things work by adopting
workflows and procedures that would minimise
the risk of misunderstandings or blunders. You’
d regularly check how the team performs and
fine-tune procedures to make sure everyone on
the team is heard and given all the necessary
tools to deliver outstanding work.
ISTJ (the Inspector)
ISTP (the Craftsman)
Sometimes it might be hard for your team to
keep up with your proposals for online
collaboration tools, but they’ll always turn to
you to save the day when they can’t wrap their
head around why something isn’t working the
way it should. As a remote manager, you’ll
focus on designing workflows, and you might
get so interested in this that you’ll miss some
of the things happening around you.
ISFJ (the Protector)
You’re one of the people remote workers love
having as a manager, because you’re always
making sure they are well-rested or
comfortable with the intricacy of the tasks they
need to complete. You’re probably the person
asking most often “how’s everybody doing
today?”, making your remote colleagues feel
that they are part of the team even if they’re
5,000 miles away.
ISFP (the Composer)
You’ll do your best to accommodate the needs
of your team, even agreeing to offer full work
schedule flexibility. You’re guiding your life
based on your inner principles and love living
in the moment, so you want to offer others the
same freedom. The only thing that could ruin
your peace of mind would be to manage
remote workers reluctant to adapt to their
peers’ working styles.
INFJ (the Counselor)
The remote workers you’ll be managing will
think they found gold: you’re a great leader. We
wouldn’t even be surprised if you’d be ready to
coach your teammates on achieving more in
life and career. The introverts in your team will
find the experience of working with you life
changing, and they’ll always compare future
managers with you.
INFP (the Healer)
For you it might be a bit difficult to get it right
the first time. What we mean by that is that
you’re so eager to make things better for
everyone around you that you might end up
taking on more work than you can handle,
assigning to yourself tasks that normally
should be completed by someone else on your
team. You have what it takes to be an amazing
remote manager, so don’t worry if at first you’ll
overprotect your staff, you’ll eventually learn to
delegate.
INTJ (the Mastermind)
We doubt you’ll spent too much time
researching good practices for managing a
remote team, you’ll probably come up with
your own strategies for getting work done in
the most efficient way and keeping your team
engaged.
INTP (the Architect)
You’ll document everything. Not only because
you enjoy describing tasks as detailed as
possible but also because you want to make
processes accessible to everyone. Workers
going remotely for the first time will find in you
not only a wise manager but also a tutor for
telecommuting related skills.
ESTP (the Promoter)
We have no doubt you’ll spend your day
switching your role from manager to whatever
else your team needs to make sure things get
done fast and well. You’ll help your remote
team learn new skills and become more
competitive, all while pushing yourself to
become the best manager you could be.
ESTJ (the Supervisor)
No wonder your personality type is called the
Supervisor, as a remote manager you’d focus
on fixing what works poorly to optimise
workflows and processes. You’d also be a big
fan of time tracking software and online
project management tools. For many
companies, you’d be the perfect remote
manager.
ESFP (the Performer)
You’re going to embark on a mission: to make
working remotely super fun. You’ll love testing
out all the crazy ideas other companies come
with for boosting employee engagement in
remote teams and you’ll inevitably become a
global champion of remote team building
events and virtual office parties. That doesn’t
mean you won’t get work done; your team will
rock deadlines and deliver outstanding work
because you’ll know how to motivate them.
ESFJ (the Provider)
You’ll do your best to adapt working conditions
to what each remote worker thinks will improve
their performance and happiness. You might be
surprised to see that some of the workers will
show you less respect than they should. If that
happens, it’s because they’ll consider your
kindness a sign of weakness and they want to
see how far they can push you until you
retaliate. Make sure you keep your team
members accountable and keep them focused
on the team’s ultimate goal.
ENFP (the Champion)
You’ll get over excited about new endeavours
and get everyone involved. You’ll rush into
delegating tasks and setting things in motion.
One thing you’ll have to be careful about is
maintaining a balanced work schedule for your
remote workers, because you might get so
eager to test out ideas and theories that you’ll
forget how long it actually takes to wrap up
tasks and projects, and everyone’s workload
might increase above manageable levels.
ENFJ (the Teacher)
Your organisational skills will make it look like
your team of remote workers is made up of
telepaths: no misunderstandings leading to
errors, no project roadblocks, no unresolved
conflicts. It won’t take you long to train the
remote workers to function as a live organism
that delivers exceptional work.
ENTP (the Visionary)
As soon as you start working with a new remote
team member you can tell how things are going
to play out and what changes need to be made in
order to fully integrate and help them perform
better. Your life experience helps you read people
and environments in minutes and make the best
decisions for your company and team.
ENTJ (the Commander)
You don’t always understand why some
members of your crew are asking too many
questions about a new project or task. It might
be because you tend to figure out things faster
than others and expect them to do the same.
Remember not all people are perfect remote
workers and they do need a bit more guiding to
deliver great work.

Myers-Briggs Personality Types vs. Remote Work

  • 1.
  • 2. The personality of remote managers has a big impact on how remote teams function and deliver value.
  • 3. Go ahead, find out what kind of remote manager would you be based on your Myers-Briggs Personality Type!
  • 4. Don't know your personality type? No problem. Click here.
  • 5. As the manager of a virtual team, you can be trusted to make things work by adopting workflows and procedures that would minimise the risk of misunderstandings or blunders. You’ d regularly check how the team performs and fine-tune procedures to make sure everyone on the team is heard and given all the necessary tools to deliver outstanding work. ISTJ (the Inspector)
  • 6. ISTP (the Craftsman) Sometimes it might be hard for your team to keep up with your proposals for online collaboration tools, but they’ll always turn to you to save the day when they can’t wrap their head around why something isn’t working the way it should. As a remote manager, you’ll focus on designing workflows, and you might get so interested in this that you’ll miss some of the things happening around you.
  • 7. ISFJ (the Protector) You’re one of the people remote workers love having as a manager, because you’re always making sure they are well-rested or comfortable with the intricacy of the tasks they need to complete. You’re probably the person asking most often “how’s everybody doing today?”, making your remote colleagues feel that they are part of the team even if they’re 5,000 miles away.
  • 8. ISFP (the Composer) You’ll do your best to accommodate the needs of your team, even agreeing to offer full work schedule flexibility. You’re guiding your life based on your inner principles and love living in the moment, so you want to offer others the same freedom. The only thing that could ruin your peace of mind would be to manage remote workers reluctant to adapt to their peers’ working styles.
  • 9. INFJ (the Counselor) The remote workers you’ll be managing will think they found gold: you’re a great leader. We wouldn’t even be surprised if you’d be ready to coach your teammates on achieving more in life and career. The introverts in your team will find the experience of working with you life changing, and they’ll always compare future managers with you.
  • 10. INFP (the Healer) For you it might be a bit difficult to get it right the first time. What we mean by that is that you’re so eager to make things better for everyone around you that you might end up taking on more work than you can handle, assigning to yourself tasks that normally should be completed by someone else on your team. You have what it takes to be an amazing remote manager, so don’t worry if at first you’ll overprotect your staff, you’ll eventually learn to delegate.
  • 11. INTJ (the Mastermind) We doubt you’ll spent too much time researching good practices for managing a remote team, you’ll probably come up with your own strategies for getting work done in the most efficient way and keeping your team engaged.
  • 12. INTP (the Architect) You’ll document everything. Not only because you enjoy describing tasks as detailed as possible but also because you want to make processes accessible to everyone. Workers going remotely for the first time will find in you not only a wise manager but also a tutor for telecommuting related skills.
  • 13. ESTP (the Promoter) We have no doubt you’ll spend your day switching your role from manager to whatever else your team needs to make sure things get done fast and well. You’ll help your remote team learn new skills and become more competitive, all while pushing yourself to become the best manager you could be.
  • 14. ESTJ (the Supervisor) No wonder your personality type is called the Supervisor, as a remote manager you’d focus on fixing what works poorly to optimise workflows and processes. You’d also be a big fan of time tracking software and online project management tools. For many companies, you’d be the perfect remote manager.
  • 15. ESFP (the Performer) You’re going to embark on a mission: to make working remotely super fun. You’ll love testing out all the crazy ideas other companies come with for boosting employee engagement in remote teams and you’ll inevitably become a global champion of remote team building events and virtual office parties. That doesn’t mean you won’t get work done; your team will rock deadlines and deliver outstanding work because you’ll know how to motivate them.
  • 16. ESFJ (the Provider) You’ll do your best to adapt working conditions to what each remote worker thinks will improve their performance and happiness. You might be surprised to see that some of the workers will show you less respect than they should. If that happens, it’s because they’ll consider your kindness a sign of weakness and they want to see how far they can push you until you retaliate. Make sure you keep your team members accountable and keep them focused on the team’s ultimate goal.
  • 17. ENFP (the Champion) You’ll get over excited about new endeavours and get everyone involved. You’ll rush into delegating tasks and setting things in motion. One thing you’ll have to be careful about is maintaining a balanced work schedule for your remote workers, because you might get so eager to test out ideas and theories that you’ll forget how long it actually takes to wrap up tasks and projects, and everyone’s workload might increase above manageable levels.
  • 18. ENFJ (the Teacher) Your organisational skills will make it look like your team of remote workers is made up of telepaths: no misunderstandings leading to errors, no project roadblocks, no unresolved conflicts. It won’t take you long to train the remote workers to function as a live organism that delivers exceptional work.
  • 19. ENTP (the Visionary) As soon as you start working with a new remote team member you can tell how things are going to play out and what changes need to be made in order to fully integrate and help them perform better. Your life experience helps you read people and environments in minutes and make the best decisions for your company and team.
  • 20. ENTJ (the Commander) You don’t always understand why some members of your crew are asking too many questions about a new project or task. It might be because you tend to figure out things faster than others and expect them to do the same. Remember not all people are perfect remote workers and they do need a bit more guiding to deliver great work.
