FIRO-B: Team Preferences – Cautious Types


People vary considerably in their desire to have contact with others, from very little to a great deal of interaction with others.  Your Overall Interpersonal Needs score can tell us a lot about how your will likely perform on a team.  This month we'll look at those in the medium range, which is a score between 16 and 27.  These types are generally considered cautious.

Common or typical behaviors from people with scores in this range include trying to avoid team situations when possible, feeling drained after a week of meetings, feeling that teams are generally better than working alone, but needing role clarification before agreeing to work on a team. 

These types often report they are enthusiastic team members when there are suitable rewards, but they tend to hold back if there are no rewards.  Sometimes they can act quite reserved, but this depends a great deal upon the team and the tasks.  In meetings, they are likely to speak less rather than more than others. 

Teamwork will likely need to be balanced with individual assignments.
