I am a big fan of personality tests! They do have significance in the workplace because of what they tell you about your identity and value. Employers build teams based on what they experience from team members, first-hand. Honestly, some are more intentional than others about how they build teams. The more cognizant an employer is of the interpersonal dynamics and people skills in front of them, the more intentional they are about how they build their teams.
But here's your challenge. You must be keenly aware of your identity and value, and you need to let the employer know the role you want to play. A good way to do that is to use your objective/professional statement and skills sections of your resume to brand your people skills and how you contribute to team. Also, if you are good at managing how you interact with team members, promote your emotional intelligence (EQ), too! More employers are paying attention to how EQ comes into play in their environments.
I hope this helps and best of luck!
