In chapter three, we can see that Individual differences are associated with the concepts of personality, intelligence, cognition, motivation, learning styles, and other psychological terms. Individual differences are explained as part of each individual’s personality. They respect differences, whether of race, culture, religion, or even disabilities, and are essential in an increasingly globalized world. It also prepares people to be supportive, value and learn from others, and be tolerant and respectful. And to prevent them from making decisions based on prejudices and stereotypes.
Individual differences are personal attributes that vary from one person to another, they can be physical, psychological, or emotional. The main categories are intelligence, learning style, personality, attitude, and values. As we saw in the textbook in chapter 3, these individual differences make us unique and unrepeatable as people, creating characteristics that may or may not be unique to each person and affecting each person’s behavior in different ways, in the workplace as well as in society. Both in the business world and life in general, these differences need to be respected and managers are responsible for making the necessary adjustments to maintain the proper balance to maintain the effectiveness and efficiency of the organization.
