Now that we have examined the necessary organizational and process requirements, we turn our attention in the present chapter to the task of managing innovators. As we have seen, we need NT personality types for innovation. As these NT personality types have a completely different way of thinking and perceiving their environment than the SJ personality types, it stands to reason that it will also be necessary to manage NT personality types according to different principles.
