This talk was given at the 2013 Information Architecture Summit. As user experience designers we work with a variety of different people, everyone from engineers to executives—not to mention the end users themselves. Successful team collaboration and empathy for the users are key to designing a superior user experience, but how do you do this when you are working with a myriad of different personality types? Can you keep personality conflicts from negatively impacting your work? This session will focus on identifying different personality types and learning how to communicate and work better with them. You will walk away with tips on collaborating more effectively with team members, selling UX to executives more successfully, and connecting more easily with end users when conducting research.
Some of the most well-known people in our industry have agreed to take a personality test just for this session. Come find out who they [really] are by putting your new skills to the test!
