Workshop personalities

The Observer

They feel a little out of their depth in a workshop setting, preferring to watch the action unfold rather than stepping into the fray.

Observers keenly look for details and patterns that others overlook. They don't always see how much their perspective is value and appreciated. They thrive in workshops that actively foster collaboration from all participants. Smaller group sessions are when they shine.

Observer traits


Observers tend to be more introverted. They prefer smaller one-on-one deep dives to large group brainstorming sessions.

Out of their comfort zone

Observers feel out of place in workshops. Their discomfort is an opportunity in disguise – a chance to contribute radically fresh ideas.


Observers’ quiet nature gives them the headspace to analyse a problem. This means they give robust and well thought out feedback.
