This personality is often referred to as the Giver. I have been a manager, an instructor and consultant. It is interesting that my opposite is suitable for an engineer, which I also have been but was not always happy with. Although my primary focus would be external, my secondary focus, apparently, is internal. As an ENFJ, I am more reserved than others and can find myself feeling alone because of such reservation, from not divulging myself to others.
I am selfish when it comes to people I’m not close to, and I think this stems from me not being open and comfortable around new people. I think I can tie in my insecurity and being more reserved into why I am like this. When I meet a person, I don’t automatically trust that they are good and nice, it takes time for me to get to know them and make sure that they are. I am untrusting and selfish, but only at the beginning of my relationships. I don’t think these are necessarily negative traits to possess, I believe that if you’re trusting of everyone and completely self-less you’ll be taken advantage of.
The first question in the assessment dealt with emotions, and I answered mostly false; while I do think that emotions can turn efficient work into excellent work, or a lack of passion or interest in work can lead to unacceptable performance, I do not think that feelings should be the main guide. You mentioned process in your podcast, and expanded on the Daft definition. Processes are repeated over and over, and managers have to assure that alignment results in the targeted goals being the focus. I am thinking of myself, as much as others, when answering this question; I don’t feel like doing what I need to do fairly often. Once I get started, I normally do pretty well; because I know that it is not best to just go with what I feel.
Does Friendship Help or Hurt a Good Boss-Employee Relationship Employees treasure a good relationship with their bosses, and vice versa. However, what many don’t know is that friendship does not promote a good employer-employee relationship. Yes, you read it right. Bosses should not be friends with their employees if they were to maintain a healthy working relationship. Here are several reasons why friendship between employer and employees can hurt the business.
If I keep in my personal styles as power, conventional and limiting in human-encouraging, there will be not much improvement in planning, organizing, leading and controlling from my current situation because I feel like my director has the similar styles. According to Mason , Talya and Berrin, planning “involves setting objectives and determining a course of action for achieving those objectives.” As a Power style manager, I will create both positive and negative impact to planning. I have the authority to set strategies to meet the objective. However, there will be lack of communication with people that the planning will not come out with the better outcome to meet the objective. In addition, a Conventional style manager will try to keep steps like prior period.
For starters, I hardly ever face any kind of weakness I have, I tend to see them as burdens or flaws rather than embracing them. I know that by facing my weaknesses, I can overcome them and that they will have less power over me, but I cannot find myself coming to terms with them. So, when I am in doubt of myself, I don't really ask questions as much as my personality trait says I do so, I tend to assume that any lack of feedback is negative feedback. If you need feedback and don't have any, I never ask for it because of the fear of people pointing out my flaws and weaknesses. With that being said, when someone points out one of my weaknesses, I don’t smile or simply “take” the criticism, I do not even try to see a disagreement or discord the criticism as an opportunity for growth, I take it to heart and take it personally.
I 'm not a confident person ; I don 't believe I 've ever been one. Too often I find myself relying on others for reassurance. If left to my own devices, I would be indecisive out of fear of being wrong. I doubt my abilities and my skill one I 'm performing them. I feel talentless and doubt if the art I make is actually any good.
I was quite worried about my result of this factor, because no one wants to be described as neurotic. I would describe myself as relatively calm and composed, but there are some days I am stressed. For anxiety, self-consciousness, and vulnerability I scored an average, which would explain my stressful days. The other facets, anger, depression, and immoderation I scored low. Which is good, meaning I’m not neurotic.
This is exactly how I thought of myself. I feel like others cannot be trusted sometimes and other times I just feel like it is more stressful for me to talk to other people so I just keep things to myself most of the time. I also pay very close attention to details when I am doing any task. I am sort of a perfectionist. When things are not perfect of the way I want things it causes an issue for me.
Sometimes the new way doesn't work, sometimes it does and I try to bed it down before moving on to the next improvement. Perhaps, part of the reason I am this way is that I'm task oriented, (a psych term if ever there was one). As a rule, I don't care how I get there, but once I set myself a goal, I don't stop till it's achieved. I rarely think about ego, my own or anyone else's, nor do I tend to worry about people's feelings. This has dropped me in a lot of hot water, both in my private life and at school.
