No, I refuse to be a Team Player!
Upon discovering my Personality Type as INFP, it explains my resistance and dislikes working in a “team” environment at a place of employment. Although I enjoy working with people, my preference is working by myself.
I wrote this article a few years ago while seeking employment and still chuckle at this “Team Player” question.
Succeeding in having your resume read these days is a true triumph, but receiving an invite for an interview is bliss!
Skipping the key interview portion, which you surmise has gone extremely well and approached the end, whereby the interviewer now asks this clichéd, question: Are You A ‘Team Player’?

With the way INFPs seem to dominate the Internet, popping up in hundreds on forums, on blogs, you could almost be led to believe that there are quite a lot of us out there, and we aren’t as rare as the studies say.
But that would be an incorrect extrapolation. Fact is, disregarding the 4% statistic sites like to throw around, we are a minority, in that the way we think, feel and view the world is often markedly different from the majority who aren’t highly introverted, creative and emotive creatures—and I have yet to communicate with an INFP who has met another of her or his kind in real life. Our online presence is merely a reflection of our introverted and reclusive natures; and the fact that we tend to find it far easier to form a relationship through written rather than spoken words.
