When preparing for an interview, you probably have (or should have) a mental checklist to help decide if the company is a good fit: How involved is the management?

Although something small, such as an office layout, might seem inconsequential, more companies are recognizing the subtle but powerful link between workplace design and employee performance.

To help you do just that, Quill.com has developed an infographic that links common workplace personalities—based on John Holland’s Theory of Career Choice—with some of the most popular workspace designs today. Check it out to see which setup is best for you.
