As this was the answer I was expecting. The result connected me to ESFJs personalty and the feedback was accurate. For example ESFJs stated that I have good social cues, and how well I was accepted into my community. Also my result on weakness was correct when according to 16Personalities, I am reluctant to innovate or improvise, this mean I often get scared when I have to be different, this is a issue I face every day. Another was me being “inflexible” this means that I would sometime push myself too hard to get whatever I wanted.
For starters, these assessments were more in depth than any other personality quiz I’ve ever taken. I appreciated how they covered such a wide array of one’s personality and though most of what they told me reaffirmed things I previously knew about myself, I learned a lot about how these personality traits impact my social and professional life. The “D” section of DISC covers decisiveness. I scored above average here in both Natural and Adaptive categories. Most of the traits presented here were things I was already relatively aware of, such as my tendency to somewhat “push the envelope” and how I tend to work better without a lot of supervision.
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).
My type personality unraveled My personality profile is Introversion-iNtuition-Feeling-Judging. The Jungen test confirms that I have a strong preference of Introversion over Extraversion (100%), a marginal or no Intuition over Sensing (3%), a slight preference of Feeling over Thinking (9%), and a moderate preference of Judging over Perceiving (34%). In business and school, this means that I am an Introvert with a lifestyle that balances both intuition and Sensing, Feeling and Judging rather than thinking and perception respectively. Using the MBTI test can be a valuable way towards the development of the person’s ability in how to manage relationships with others. My MBTI test, I took last week, described my preference for my way of thinking
You must accept the persons who make mistakes to you. Try to let go of any anger or resentment you may feel. When you free yourself of negative energy, that the easier it will be to move forward. Then, when you find yourself in problems or conflicts with the other persons, try find the solutions which are positive for them as well as for you and try find the real cause of the problems and deal with it. Then, you must try and changes your attitude to them, so that you do not build up the feeling of resentment or start taking your feelings out to other.
Yes from time to time I am misunderstood and that’s ok with me. I love the human interaction and understanding that so few understand beyond rhyme or reason. I find my relationships with other people are far greater in debt then most people. My circle may be small but they are genuine and I truly like that about my double edge sword of knowing the intentions of good versus evil. Though my personality has flaws such as when under stress I can create pain and discomfort and sometimes find myself at a tug a war game with in my own personality I do seem to find myself to be very unique and wouldn’t want it any other way.
I know that I am far too trusting and far too giving. I tend to put more into my work than my coworkers and I get emotionally invested. I sometimes find it difficult for me to articulate my feelings/ emotions/ concerns. The one strength I did overcome, was I went from a job that had zero meaning to it, to a job where the work actually has a purpose and I feel like I am making a difference, which is something that I learned that I need. If the work doesn’t provide a meaningful outcome, I don’t work as hard.
This all makes sense to me because I struggle showing emotion, and sharing my own thoughts and opinions. I tend to keep to myself and would benefit from forcing myself to be more open with those around me when a decision is needed to be made or a task needs to be completed. I scored high on the S spectrum. This means I tend to be more calm, and approach situations with a relaxed and open approach. This can be good in most instances but it does say that sometimes tasks are done more slowly, which can be a negative in some instances.
After seeking feedbacks from my interviewees, I realize topics that involve personal value contain a higher chance on pulling the trigger. Therefore, subjects such as religion, politics, culture and race should be avoided through conversation. Also, it is important to predict what I will do or say when I face this kind of situations. Doing such prediction helps myself to understand how I will react, in order to take control of the situation instead of letting my emotion to
So, I have decided to work on those weaknesses in order to not make me matter too much in my life. If I don’t they will produce negative consequences and may even disrupt my efforts while I use my personal strengths. If we learn the benefits of not taking things personally, then reacting to criticism or thoughts decreases. I started looking at myself as a person the most focusing on dictating only to me, to put me on the right track for success and avoiding nonproductive activities from my daily life. The first step in breaking the habit of taking things personally is to observe the stories I tell myself.
