In recent years, there has been an increasing interest in exploring personality differences to improve work experience in software organisations. This study presents a personality assessment process conducted on 382 software practitioners using the Keirsey temperament sorter II. The primary goal of this assessment is to explore the personality temperaments of software practitioners working in different types of software development organisations. In addition, a novel visualisation approach is proposed for arranging temperaments using a periodic table-like structure. The results suggest that the authors approach provides an effective means to investigate an organisation's personality profile while assessing personality types.
