Personality affects a wide variety of issues in organizational behavior, human resource management, and strategic management. Instructors teaching personality often have students take personality tests and then give them their scores. This passive approach to giving test feedback suffers from several weaknesses dealing with distinct perceptual biases. The author presents an experiential group exercise that helps overcome these problems and that has a broad range of applications in management and social science courses that discuss personality.
