Hi Daniel

You are welcome.

My tiered English was not at it best in the first post, but I hope the
spellchecker managed to make my writing readable.

Well there is always the purpose of the occasion and how it plays out. I
would now be interested how different participatory processes work for
individuals and compare it to Belbin team roles or the personality
psychology of the five scales: Cautious-inventive; Organized-careless;
Energetic-reserved; Analytical-compassionate; and Confident-nervous. But
what to measure for is of-course up to the purpose of our survey.

What would be our next step in this topic offering.

In openness,
Kári the group coach
