Much of the work done in organizations is performed in teams, so it becomes crucial that the teams that will perform it are viable and successful teams. Therefore, it becomes relevant that the constitution of a team takes into account some factors that can more easily guarantee its success. In this context, an important issue in the formation of viable teams is the psychological characterization of the constituent members. To support that characterization there are a number of frameworks that present several characteristics of personality, as well as describe the expected behaviors of an individual with these personality traits. Individuals with different characteristics will have different behaviors that can lead to team failure or success. It is therefore important to understand which types of personalities are able to work together in order to find the most appropriate and therefore more viable mixtures. For this purpose, it is intended to use as a research approach the agent-based simulation, currently very much in vogue in the area of computational sociology. In this sense, agents will possess certain personality characteristics that, according to the rules of team formation, will lead to the emergence of teams, whose "mix" of personalities correspond to viable teams.
