Consider teams, constructed according to Jungian cognition theory, at various locations and that are themselves to be combined into larger "superteams". Combination is done by treating each component team as a single person having a cognitive mode pattern made up of the maximum scores for each mode. These equivalent "persons" are then combined for cognitive variety in the same way pairs of persons would be formed. It is shown how to do this so that superteams will have the high cognitive mode scores desired. In an example simulation, the superteam scores are almost as high as those obtainable when everyone is in the same location.

Keywords: design teams, cognitive modes, teamology, cognitive variety, personality theory
