As requested, I took the Jung Typology Assessment. The results revealed my personality to be ISFJ (Introverted Sensing Feeling Judging). The first characteristic listed is the desires to serve others. An ISFJ is loyal, sometimes taken for granted, bad at delegating, but produces superior quality work. Methodical, accurate, and possess an excellent memory are more characteristics of the ISFJ personality type. They work well in a small group and make reliable coworkers; however, they tend to be awkward in a supervisory capacity. Not only is an ISFJ a great employee but they are extremely family oriented and dedicated to their intimate group of friends. If a friend or family member is in need of emotional support an ISFJ is by their side without
The online Jung Typology Test was a very interesting exercise. The test pointed out certain things about my personality type that I will be examining in the course of this class. It may give me some important insights into my personal and professional decisions about family, career and life. I have worked in municipal government for over 38 years. I have done budgets, human resources, and day to day supervision of several city departments. The majority of that time has been within management of two major international airports. In that time I managed employees, and I was managed by executive level leadership. Employee supervision was a great learning experience. I supervised employees who came to work to do their jobs, and other subordinates
I found this paper to be very insightful. My personality type showed me to be a person that is an ISFJ, an introverted, sensing, feeling and also judgmental person. I agreed with the findings and research of this personality type except for the judgmental aspect. After learning about my own personality I explored some of the components of personalities.
Personality assessments can serve as a powerful and impactful tool that benefits the participants or others with whom your paths may cross. Inevitably, taking assessments like this requires self-awareness in order to maximize the value of the results. In this case, the McGraw-Hill assessment covered a wide array of topics which provided an extensive assessment of my values, personality style, motivational influences and contributing factors that drive my behaviors (McGraw-Hill Education, 2017). This evaluation offered me personal insights on how I behave in various situations, the impact my behavior may have on others, additional context around my personality traits and style, and organizational considerations that may influence my actions,
My strengths that was very strong within all my interpersonal styles were that we care about others and their needs. I can say that goes along well with me because I jump in and help others in need any occasions. Another great point is our responsible to our duties and punctuality that we have along with it. This is totally
Strengths: My decision making style strengths include me focusing more towards my inner feelings and gut instinct more than facts and logical analysis. My first instinct is more superior to any based fact because I feel more comfortable with the decision. This is vital when making decisions because it is not always about what is right but more so what is best at the moment. For example, while at work one day my fellow coworkers and I ran into a several issues setting up for
Personality assessments can serve as valuable tools to determine personality types, and subsequently allow us to understand certain behavior patterns. My own personality assessment revealed that I have an ENFJ personality type; I am an extrovert; have a preference of intuition over sensing; have a preference of feeling versus thinking; and have a preference of judging over perceiving (Jung, n.d.). The results of my assessment were quite revealing, mostly accurate, with room for interpretation. Real-time circumstances and the environment have a direct impact on my behavior. According to Revelle and Condon (2015) “People differ from themselves on a moment to moment basis in that they do not think, feel or act the same all the time. They change in their feelings, in their thoughts, in their desires and in their actions.”
After completing the “Determining Your Personality Style” assessment, I was shocked with my result because it plainly described me. According to my assessment my personality style is Amiable; a person who wants to know “why?”, Wants to build relationships, loves to give others support and attention, values suggestions from others, fears losing trust, dislike disagreements with others, displays her emotions, and somewhat introverted. I also discovered that as an amiable person, my strengths are, supportive, patient, and diplomatic. I am not quite aware know my strengths and what I tend to see mostly are my weaknesses and mistakes, which scares me when confronted with the question, “tell me about yourself.” However, I am glad I did this assessment because it made me realise that in all my weaknesses and mistakes I still have strengths. Now I can boldly tell someone my strengths. Nonetheless, there are still some signs of weaknesses in me. The assessment said, “there is a great saying ‘your greatest strength is also your greatest weakness’’.” As a leader, I need to be able to access all the personality styles because I will be dealing with different kinds of people and situations that demand leaders with a certain type of personality style. For example, I can’t efficiently lead a team of drivers if I’m an amiable person. So to develop other personality styles I will start doing the following;
Having 13 years’ experience in healthcare I believe that I know myself pretty well in terms of my personality and leadership style. I wanted to first test my personality so I answered about one hundred questions for the Myers-Briggs personality test which then classified my personality into a group of ENTJ which is also known as the Commander. This test measures your answers on how you perceive the world and places you into a group of one of sixteen personality types. It is based on the theories of Carl Jung who is a Swiss psychiatrist who studied personalities. ENTJ stands for extraversion, intuition, thinking, and judging. People who fall in this category are known to be natural born leaders
Sun Tzu once said “If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles.”(p. 51). Even though one may not be in battle this statement still holds true when dealing within organizations and how people work together. The purpose of this paper is to identify which of the Sixteen Personality Types I am. After completing the Jung Typology Test I was scored as being EFSP; throughout this paper I will discuss each individual letter and the theory behind it, and then elaborate how it applies to my own personal life. Using the knowledge that I have gained from first part of this paper and using Type Talk at Work I will then further dive into how my personality affects my decision making. Once I have reached a better understanding of myself I will then apply it to my current career and how I can make myself a better officer, and therefore a better leader. Very good
There are multiple theories of personality and leadership assessments that have proven effective in helping individuals achieve their full career potential. The “Big Five” theory of personality, for example, measures the five broad areas of personality, including extraversion, agreeableness, conscientiousness, neuroticism, and openness to experience (Srivastava, 2015). Other types of assessments, such as the more simple leadership assessment we explored, simply measure leadership qualities, such as emotional intelligence and confidence. In exploring a couple of such resources in more depth, such as the leadership assessment provided by the University of Kent’s Career Enhancement Center, as well as the Myers-Briggs Personality Type Indicator, it is clear that understanding more about oneself can lead to enhanced career choices.
On the NC State Career Center website, I choice Humanmetrics Jung Typology Test and it determines my personality from a questionnaire. My results were extravert (1%), sensing (1%), feeling (3%), and judging (16%). I was not surprised with my result because management is under ESFJ Career Choices and it involves with what I want to do in the future. I noticed that I like to work with a lot of people and I am always responsible for critical tasks in the past.
Personality is something I often think about. To me, it is one of the most important aspects of an individual, in terms of Human Relations. When dating, we assess our prospective mate’s “personality” – is it good, is it bad, are there components of it we cannot live with? When we have children, we ponder what type of “personality” they will have. Will it be like moms or will it be like Uncle Larry’s? Yet, it wasn’t until I took the Jungian Typology Personality Assessment that I made an honest connection to my personality and my tendencies as it relates to school or work. Moreover, previously, I had not deeply considered how my personality affects my style of conflict resolution. As an ESFJ (extraverted, sensing, feeling, judging) I have a lot of positives, making me a great candidate for management but I also have areas of weakness that I must remain cognizant
Now when it comes to the StrengthsQuest it fits me perfectly to what I thought my description was. The first one that I had was adaptability. With this I’m the type of person that goes and takes things day by day. I hate to think about the future unless I have something good that I know is going to come out of it for sure. I also discover new things that are going to happen in the future every day. I also love to just go do something and seize the moment while it lasts. I can potentially be not only spontaneous but very mellow and lay back at the same time. I tend to not like to go days by a schedule and do things the way that they come to me at the beginning of the day. I feel that this is one strength that I completely see myself as.
