Although this was not the first personality assessment that I’ve completed, after reading this week’s study material, I can honestly say that I have gained a more expansive understanding and perspective on the subject. First, I had not considered the correlation between our covenant with God and the responsibility that we should maintain a similar engagement with one another on a day-to-day basis (Presentation: Lesson 1 – A Worldview Perspective on Organizational Behavior, 2012).

My temperament is ‘SJ’, also known as “The Guardian”, with a primary objective to inspect then execute the task at hand (Jung, 1998-2015). So, to sum it all up, you can count on me to do what I say I will do.
