For many of us, our scores on any particular FIRO-B scale can fall in the medium range, either high or low. In such cases, it might be worthwhile to look at your highest score and see how it relates to those aspects of being on a team that are most important to you. Let's start with those cases where Inclusion is your highest score.
It's common for those with Inclusion as the highest scale to feel that it's important for the team members to share the workload equally. Many report they'd like the team to feel like members in a club or social association. Along with that, people with high scores on this scale want to have a sense of team identity and the feeling everyone is in this project together. Others say they really prefer frequent and regular contact with the rest of the team.
Recognition, praise, and encouragement both within and outside the team are important, as is having everyone contribute. Open communications, with a free exchange of ideas, recommendations, progress reports, etc. are good. Finally, many report they want this team to be highly visible within the organization (or even outside), with prestige a nice side benefit.
As usual, most of us will share some of the above desires to some degree. It's more a matter of which factors are most important to you and whether or not your needs can be met on your team.
