In this episode Joel and Antonia discuss personality ergonomics in the workplace and how to design a peak performance environment.

In this podcast on ergonomics in the workplace you’ll find:

  • Businesses, organizations and schools are now optimizing the ergonomics in their workplace.
  • You can see the changes by looking at their chairs, table and important work equipment like mice and keyboards.
  • It has become evident that people get more productive if they are able to work comfortably.
  • There’s much focus on physical ergonomics but not about personality ergonomics.
  • Your flow state rejuvenates you. It helps activate your driver process so even if you feel a bit tired, you feel refreshed and fulfilled.
  • Imagine if you could harness a person’s flow state energy into a job or career and they leave work feeling refreshed and not tired.
  • When you work out of your flow state, and this is when you go into your inferior process (3-year old), you feel very tired and drained at the end of the day.
  • We end up customizing and optimizing things when we are exposed to different options to choose from.
  • The concept of ergonomics is making people feel happier.
  • It’s all about understanding the people who work for your company and how you can bring out their flow state. This will help them feel rewarded and fulfilled while doing their jobs. They’re always gaining energy at work because they’re at their best.
  • Even though we don’t have to change the job roles and description or hire someone for a certain type, we can at least assume that once the person is in that position, their environment is conducive for their flow state.
  • Accuracy people are more focused about data, so anything that’s very emotional like workplace dramas and politics will throw them out of their flow state.
  • We’d like you to start thinking about personality ergonomics in the workplace, school and home.
  • How do you feel that your business, career or the school you attend? Is your home setup to the personality involved in that place and how can it be done even better based on those personalities?

    Amazing podcast as always :) I just realized that I spend the first two years of my career in INFJ-hell: I had to share a room with four other people, I was sitting with my back to the door, the door was always open and in addition to the cold air draft there was a constant but unpredictable flow of people coming and going because they either wanted to talk to one of us or because they were using the printer which was also standing behind my back. In retrospect it’s no wonder I got semi-suicidal at times. Because I was so desperate for a break I often skipped lunch and wandered alone outside for 30 minutes. In school it wasn’t much different. During breaks no matter how short I hid in the library or tried to get myself locked into the empty classroom. Until today I had the conviction that I am “weird” aka not created for school and working environments – you alerted me to the fact it might be the other way round :) Thank you for that – I am definitely sharing your content with my friends and family!

    Interesting thought. There’s a lot of physical and environment aspects in our world that is NOT built according to consideration that people are different. Open concepts in workplace are currently the in-thing. Corporate office are switching from private cubicles to open space which is supposed to encourage more collaboration and peer discussion. (good for corporations because of cheaper cost!)

    I don’t exactly know what kinda environment suits me (Authenticity/Exploration) but I do appreciate differentiation of spaces. I don’t want to be stuck at the same environment for long. If I need concentration to churn out ideas, I prefer no distraction. Sometimes I just need to talk or discuss. Sometime I just want to face the sunlight.

    It will be the best if one can move around in workspaces.
