The above characteristics are signs of a healthy, confident, and well-adjusted personality. There is not a single undesirable or negative quality on the list. Yet studies show that only five to twenty per cent of the population is assertive!
Throughout my life I have always argued my point, I am not the type of person that holds their views in for the sake of others. It is important for people to state what they think in order for people to widen their knowledge of certain subjects and learn to accept other peoples views. As much as I state my views I am not afraid of being wrong, to me being wrong is a learning experience. There is a fine line between people who state their views as right and people who offer their views to learn.
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.
I have been afraid to express my disagreement before. One reason why I have felt that way is that I have been proven wrong before. The embarrassment that I felt made me think twice about sharing my opinion. Since then, I have learned to take being proven wrong as a learning experience and thinking twice before stating my stance has helped me prepare my argument. I think that many other people have been proven wrong or are afraid of being
The test claimed to prove the personality type by adding big names like Briggs Mayer Test but there was nothing mature about it. The test results were totally unclear and all it said was that I was on the borderline to every aspect. There was nothing this test told for sure. It just kept saying that I was in the middle of every trait without any explanation. The vagueness of the test was strengthened by the results it showed. It was a great
When discussing the accuracy of personality tests, there is no test, which will provide perfect precision. According to Dr. O'Neil, “an individual's personality is the complex of mental characteristics that makes them unique from other people” (2006, Para 1). O’Neil believes that the potential factors involved in shaping personality include values, beliefs, and expectations that are genetic and environmental (O’Neil, 2006).
PLEASE REMEMBER – when taking personality tests, or any psychological tests, you typically need to respond based on your PREFERRED way of being, not necessarily how situations in the past have required / compelled you to be.
Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about the things that matter.” Voicing unpopular ideas have always been apart of the lives of people. Since the beginning of time, people have been speaking their minds and using their voice to create change. Voicing your opinion can ignite a difference in the perspectives and views of society.
The questioner that will be administered to the participants will be the Liebowitz Social Anxiety Scale and The Rathus Assertiveness Schedule. The Liebowitz Social Anxiety Scale comprises of 13 questions related to performance anxiety and 11 concern social situations. The scale is composed of 24 items divided into 2 subscales, 13 items concerning performance anxieties, and 13 items concerning to social situations. The items on the test are first rated from 0 to 3 on fear felt during the situations. Secondly, the same items then are rated regarding avoidance of the situation. Subsequently, the total score of the fear and avoidance are combined and will be utilized to assess if race and ethnicity are significantly impacted by these factors. For the purposes of this perspective, experiment scores will also be assessed separately and assessed to identify if fear or anxiety and avoidance are impacted by assertiveness.
I recognize how difficult it can be to stand up for what you believe and not allow others to dissuade you from it. Having been put in a few situations, but not nearly as severe as some
It always important to stand up for what you believe in. When you don’t do this it makes you seem vulnerable and that’s how people are able to walk all over you.
At times,people often seem to think that standing up for what you believe in is something to be ashamed of. It kind of depends on what you think and how you think. Considering it can either be positive or negative there will be different reactions to that. However even if it's bad or good,you should be able to voice out anything you want.
In the end, I found that the personality test and the temperament that goes with it is accurate to a fault. The only issue that arose that I question is whether I am an extrovert or an introvert. Most of the time I have relate to both daily. I become overwhelmed with one or the other and I need to resort to the opposite. I need time to recharge because I have given all I possibly could at that moment.
You should not be afraid to say what you believe in. Even if it can be the most controversial saying that might ever be said, you would still be sticking up for what you believe in. Through Kanye’s “George Bush doesn’t care about black people” I had realized that if no one had ever spoke up about any subject, the world would succumb into chaos as everyone would let people do whatever they want and no
A certain Tibetan test that I took was correct on certain aspects of myself. It told me that I think of myself as intelligent and that one of my best friends is a true friend. Those were both true, while it also said that I value pride above all else and my career is one of the things I care less about in life. This was incorrect for I value my career highly and do not value pride above other things. Another test that we also took said many things that were correct to a certain degree, such as that I am logical and like to be challenged. This test was in fact very correct about myself. I thought the Keirsey Test was better, because it gave more data on myself, as well as a better description and elaboration. These were all very good tests in their own right, but for myself the Keirsey was the most exact and
