My basic desire, according to the test... ... middle of paper ... ...de because I show no emotion and this could cause me to lose customers. Some of my results I did not agree with. For example, when I researched my personality type on www.16personalities.com it said that I was patient and had the ability to concentrate. I am very impatient and I am easily distracted especially when under stress. Other than those two descriptions I think that these tests really helped me further understand my personality.
I have noticed for a while now that I control my emotions. I realize how easy it is to snap out of negativity, even though it may seem hard. In addition, one thing in life that I always strive to remember is that I cannot control everything and that stressing over things that I cannot control is a waste of energy. I went through a small rough patch in my life a couple years ago and finally had to tell myself to either let it go and move forward, or to remove myself from the situation, because continuing to feel the way I was feeling everyday was only going to make matters worse and ruin the best parts of me. When I finally did that, I felt so much better because I made a decision and stuck to it.
This, to me, is the ability to say the hard things, even when it is painful. I believe that true honesty makes the difference between any good or bad relationship, as well as, a good or bad life! When I live with honesty, people around me know what I expect, how I feel and what I need. There is no guesswork, which takes out a lot of miscommunication, as well as, hard feelings and mistrust. This means having those uncomfortable conversations, not just to be open, but because that is the only way, I believe, to help someone grow.
Everyone wants respect. When people call me weird, I really don’t get mad but I get insecure about it. One of my best friends, told me that i’m weird and realize more things. Of course it hurt me but he wants me to be confident about myself and without people making fun of me.But I’ve had been improving on myself that’s
I made myself like that, and it’s a big part of my personality. I also knew that outgoing people go places in life, and I made myself into someone who takes chances and speaks up when something is offered. Falconer explains it perfectly, “If you don’t become outgoing you will miss a huge chunk of the best parts of your life. Social unease and shyness can be crippling character traits. So not only will you miss out on good times but you will miss out on a lot of good opportunities.” (para.
My self-image is so low that I have a tremendous amount of self-pity or self-hatred. I do however want to find that happy median where I'm comfortable in my own skin. It's odd how my feelings about myself change from day to day. I engage quite often in interpersonal conversation, question my motives and encouraging myself to move forward. My success in business attributes to my abilities but I still put an unbelievable amount of stress on myself to be the best and never seem comfortable to relax and enjoy what I have and w... ... middle of paper ... ... also convey a strong confidence in my ability to perform my job at a high level.
The other weakness of my personality type is often I can be too sensitive. However, I elect to be receptive when it comes to dissent and criticism. Taking into consideration effective leadership, however, often not able to differentiate between my problems and those that do not belong to me. This has led me to mend obstacles that are beyond my reach, which can spiral into to
I have the weakness of not being able to let go of my past mistakes and I hold them over myself which sometimes makes me upset. I need to learn to let go of my past and to not get mad at myself over irrelevant things. Additionally, I have a strength in my social health. I am good at getting along with other people that I am friends and I make sure I am always there for them when they need me. I try to be nice to everyone and to help them through anything they need.
However I did recognise t... ... middle of paper ... ...uld be times that I displayed negative emotions. Those closest to me described that I could appear direct and confident and at times impatient. I shared my feelings with them and opened up my Hidden area which surprised others as they saw me as ‘strong’ and ‘unruffled’. As I reveal parts of my Hidden area I hope to shrink my Blind area and open the Unknown aspects of me. Learning more about me and gaining insight as to why I feel and behave the way I do has been a fantastic journey and one that has not only helped me to relieve work related stress, but to enhance my relationships with others, my leadership skills and how I communicate Goleman (2007) highlights that a leader who can demonstrate several styles of leadership by being receptive to their impact on others, will attain the best results and heralds the philosophy of cultivating emotional intelligence.
I enjoy meeting and interacting with people and learn about their culture and interests. Even though we develop some of our weaknesses into strengths, new ones often surface. I have mentioned that I am an overachiever and I overanalyze most situations which often result in time wasted that could be spent completing other tasks. I excelled at producing results and encouraging others to do so as well, but my leadership roles in group work were more achievement oriented to achieve results. However, I should have taken on a more supportive and participative role that would have benefited the group members as well (Finkelstein, 2000).
