The questionnaire is inspired of SMB by Rickard Küller. Testing of extraversion was done using EPI by Hans Eysenck. The questionnaire and EPI was distributed to 47 employees in a Swedish Construction Company. The significant level in all statistical tests was 0.05. The results indicated no relation between degree of extraversion and well being in an open-plan office. Finally, we did not find any significant difference between men and women according to extraversion and well being in an open-plan office Keywords: privacy, extraversion, personal space, crowding (Less)
