I wondered if anyone else has done the Belbin team role test?

I have read in a couple of places that there is a link between this and MBTI but I think this must be tenuous at best.

My leading Belbin role came out as a Monitor Evaluator and my MBTI type is INTJ.

Thinking about it I think a Monitor Evaluator is closest to an ISTJ, but the 2 ISTJ's in my team had Monitor Evaluator very low down their list.

Hi again,

I checked out a copy of "Team Roles at Work" by Belbin upon your recommendation. Based on the descriptions as well as the phrases and slogans typical of the roles, I would say that top roles on my list are Team Worker, Specialist and Monitor Evaluator. I usually test on MBTI as INFJ or INTJ.

I think of INTJs and ISTJs as being critical (not in a negative sense). Therefore, I would expect both types to have Monitor Evaluator high on the list. Did the ISTJs in your group have Completer Finisher on high on the list?

I have found the "Team Roles at Work" to be very inspiring and have shown it to a couple friends at work. They are very interested although wary of being "put in a box." However, I find Belbin's view liberating for two reasons.
1) He believes the limiting factor is not the role itself, but how well one performs the roles to which one is best suited.
2) He also advises against playing roles that are not suitable.

I am also very interested in his ideas about composing teams with complementary roles.

No the ISTJ's didn't have completer finisher high up, but it was my second strongest after monitor evaluator.

Our whole reason for doing Belbin was part of a 'high performing teams' day, where we trained around how to get the best out of our team.

The Belbin section of the day showed us where the strengths of the team were and where the gaps were.

The course where we had to complete the Belbin tests and then perform some role-plays with an understanding of our Belbin characteristics really stands out in my mind. I came out very strongly as 'Plant'. (I believe that classification is sometimes known by another name, but I don't remember what that is.) I was told that Plants are quite rare. We went on to do a group test to resolve a dilemma, and I came up with the solution pretty early on ... but then everyone else insisted on discussing the solution for another twenty minutes before agreeing! How frustrating was that!

I've just done one of the tests from the group profile, and come out as INTP, with T being strong.

You might want to check out the INTP group then.
