Introved is always my clearest results when it comes to tests like these, I received 66% in this category. I am a very shy and quiet girl.; at social gatherings I tend to do more observing than socializing. For my future career in couples therapy I can see how my introversion will both help and hinder me. On one side my silence helps me to be extremely focused and observational, so I am able to catch things that others might not. But, on the other hand, my quietness might be perceived as coldness and make others uncomfortable. I am aware my personality can come off as harsh at times because I am very straight to the point.
Every individual has their own personality, that makes them who they are. After taking the personality inventory test, it came back stating that I have a consul personality. The results concluded that I was an extravert meaning that I am social, and observant over intuitive. I feel more than I think, judging over prospecting, and turbulent over assertive.
The extroversion results, which suggest I tend to be overly talkative, outgoing and sociable, prove true. Throughout my entire life, I have always been a very outgoing, talkative person who always happened to speak her mind, most commonly at the wrong times. The orderliness results, which suggest I can be overly organized, neat and structured, are also accurate. I like to have order in my life, so that there is always something to fall back on in case things do go awry. I cannot function at my best in a messy, cluttered and disorganized environment. As a child, I was diagnosed with a mild anxiety disorder which help confirm the results I got for the emotional stability section. As for the accommodation section, I normally like things to go my way. This helps explain my results for inquisitiveness section as well because I do not tend to have a very open mind, just as my results
For the trait questionnaire, I was very surprised at the findings. One trait that surprised me the most was the determination trait. I personally believe that I am a determined individual because if I have an idea, I stand by it 100%. My colleagues and my family however, thought differently and rated me neutrally for the most part. Other than that trait, I can see why the people I asked to rate me did so that way. For the skills questionnaire, I was surprised that I have more technical skills than human skills. The reason why I was surprised is because on a day to day basis, I interact with different
Overall, I believe that the test was fairly accurate in measuring certain factors of my personality so much so that it was difficult for me to find certain factors that I did not agree with. However there were two factors, E (dominance) and Q1 (rebelliousness), which I believe were a bit overrated in myself. Aside from these the test seemed to adequately define facets of my personality. For “warmth” (factor A) my sten score read 4, indicating that I am slightly more reserved and critical that easygoing and good-natured. I scored a 7 in “ego strength” (factor C), classifying me as more stable and emotionally mature and less emotional and changeable in attitudes. In dominance (factor E) my sten score read 8, meaning I am more assertive, competitive and stubborn rather than submissive, dependent and humble. I received an average score of 5 in “impulsivity” (factor F) indicating a slightly more serious and sober approach to the world over the cheerful and enthusiastic view. As for “boldness” (factor H), I received a sten score of 4 signifying a more shy and restrained approach to things as opposed to an adventurous genial one. I received a median score of 5 for “emotional sensitivity” (factor I) demonstrating my slightly more tough-minded and self-reliant view in contrast to a sensitive insecure one. For “imagination” (factor M) a score of 8, indicating that I am more imaginative, unconventional and absorbed in ideas and am less so for practicality and the prosaic.
Considering my personality, based on the “Big 5” personality traits, extraversion, agreeableness, conscientiousness, emotional stability, and openness to experience, I scored on the high end of the moderate range. As for the openness to experience, I scored a 9 out of 10 ranging in the high level of personality factor (Project 2, BMAL-500 D, McGraw Hill Connect, Liberty University, 2017). I feel as if though this is accurate as I am generally outgoing and enjoy the company of others.
Each of these components have personality traits that are associated with them. Extraversion refers to the degree in which a person is active, energetic, talkative, and assertive. Openness refers to the degree in which a person is imaginative, independent, and prefers variety. Agreeableness depends on the individual’s level of compassion, trust, and good nature. Conscientiousness is the extent to which a person is organized, careful, and responsible. Lastly, neuroticism relates to a person’s emotional stability and negative emotions. If you experience this, you score higher in neuroticism. I personally took a survey on the Big Five and I would have to say that I agree with the results for the most part. The only component I disagreed with was openness because it put me in the 6th percentile. I think this is a little low, but not too far off. It is said that results in these five factors can vary based on culture.
The extraversion trait was asked in a lot of these tests and it would seem in each one I got a high score. For example in the NEO test I got a high score on extraversion indicating that I like to be around people and I like to start up conversations. I have never really been afraid to put myself out there and get to know others. If I am not being social it is very much my decision and has nothing to do with me feeling that I cannot be social. Furthermore, on the Anxiousness scale it showed that I did not have a lot of social anxiety which is consistent with the statements mentioned above. If anything when I am not social it means that I am probably just tired and drained of energy. The other test that indicated I was high in extraversion was Eysenck's personality test. In this scale the questions seemed to center around what kind of activities you like to engage in and how assertive you are. In this category I am very into doing active activities and jumping into new things. I always feel a need to be doing something and cannot stay still really. I like to have my day packed with things back to back so I don't really have a lot of down time. Additionally, I have always been assertive and open about my opinion with people. This stems from the family I come from where it is very common to say what is on your mind and to not really filter. Our family would probably be categorized as thick-skinned. Meaning I had to get over any sense of shyness that I felt very quickly. My family jokes were unrelenting and almost conditioned you to be assertive and sharp
The results from the IPIP Big Five Factor Markers showed I am classified as a Factor 1, who is extroversion, outgoing, and social. To explain it further, I am a person considered sociable, talkative, assertive and easily excitable. Scoring high in extroversion often means I seek out social and inspiration and opportunities to participate with others. Moreover, I am characterized as being full of like, energy and positiveness, which I happen to agree with.
The personality trait from the mini IPIP6 –scale descriptions analysed in this report is Extraversion. With a mean score of 5.5 compared to the mean score of sample 4.05, standard deviation of 1.17 and z score of 1.24, over all I scored above average compared to the mean total score of participants. By incorporating previous research on Extroversion and the mini –IPIP6 scale, an observation can be made that my score was above average due to my lack in introvert behaviours. These scales are self-reported data (S- Data), which can decrease the validity as self- report data can only measure what the individual is willing to express. The personality trait from Jackson-5 Scales of revised Reinforcement Sensitivity Theory - Scale description analysed
It was too complicated to understand. My results came in as two personalities, ESFJ and ENFJ. According to 16 Personalities, ESFJ is known as the "The Consul." In high school, they're the football players, cheerleaders, student council members or in other words the popular crowd. Extraversion was E, which I had gotten on the Big Five test and basically stating again that I am talkative. I like to talk a lot but when it comes down to doing my school work, I am in full concentration mode. Sensing was S, basically being organized and realistic. Sensors in contrary to Intuitors are more about a day-to-day planner. At the end of the day they want to finish what has to be finished but if course being realistic. Feeling was F, the idea of making decisions based on emotion. It's all about intuition. Judgment was J, going with something and actually doing it. In previous group projects there has always been that one person that changes everything up without telling the group, I dislike this people. If we brainstormed something that we should stick with the plan rather than the flow. My second personality was ENFJ. According to 16 Personalities, “The Protagonist.” People with the ENFJ are born to be leaders, they're the politicians, coaches and teachers, reaching out and inspiring others to achieve and to do good in the world. Three out of the four traits that are in ENFJ were in my first personality type, the remaining one was Intuition. People with this trait tend to prefer speed but in-depth information. I am exactly like when doing
The first subset of my personality is Extraversion, as opposed to Introversion. As an extrovert, I would describe myself as social, external and gregarious. This characteristic helps me communicate and reach out to others. However, there are cons that go along
According to my IPIP-NEO narrative report I am a very independent, outgoing, calm, and curious person. My comprehensive report shows that I am: high scoring in openness, conscientiousness, and extraversion, average scoring in agreeableness and low scoring in Neuroticism. Raking in the 82nd percentile, extraversion was my second highest scoring trait. This means I am pretty outgoing, extraverted and love people. This is evident my scores of 89 in friendliness, 84 in assertiveness and 75 in activity level. Despite my high score in extraversion, I am on the lower side of average in the excitement-seeking facet with a score or 33. This means that even though I might like a little hustle and bustle and take charge I wont take to many risks and don’t always need a thrill to be satisfied.
People high in agreeableness tend to be trusting, friendly and cooperative. (27) Is about average. Factor III conscientiousness, this trait reflects how organized and persistent we are in pursuing our goals. High scorers are methodical, well organized and dutiful. (45) Is relatively high. Factor IV neuroticism, this trait reflects the tendency to experience negative thoughts and feelings. High scorers are prone to insecurity and emotional distress. Low scorers tend to be more relaxed, less emotional and less prone to distress. (14) Is relatively low. Factor V openness, this trait reflects 'open-mindedness' and interest in culture. Low scorers are more down-to-earth, less interested in art and more practical in nature. (16) Is relatively low.
Also, extroverted people tend to act impulsively without thinking of consequences. An introverted person will think about his or her actions before committing to them (Extroversion). After taking the Myers-Briggs test, I discovered that I had an extroverted personality (Flynn). This is very prevalent in my job, as well as school. While I benefit from some time to myself, I enjoy working with groups of people. If I must choose between conducting a project on my own or with a group, I will usually pick the group. I also have a job that requires working with large groups of children. While some individuals may find such a large group overwhelming, I find it easy and comfortable. Another indicator of my extroverted personality is my tendency to act on impulse. Many times, I will enroll in classes before I take the time to see if I need them or will do well in them. I also make choices without considering consequences. Last semester, I chose to skip class to attend other events. While friends thought it made me a fun, flexible person, I ended up failing my class due to absences. Being introverted and extroverted both have their positive and negative qualities, but I typically benefit from my outgoing personality.
