My character is something I take a lot of pride in. I am known to be honest, kind, and playful. I enjoy having fun but I know my limitations. I know when enough is enough and when it is time to get work done. I think this is why I excel in public and community settings. I know how to make people laugh and feel good about themselves with just a smile. I am also very honest. Since a young age my parents have inspired me to be honest and grateful. I have great work ethic and enjoy being helpful. I am patient
The negative aspects of my personality are that life tends to become frivolous and superficial and that I find it difficult to settle into one place or position. Not settling into one place or position has often been a reoccurring problem for me in the past. It wasn’t until I enrolled with the University of Phoenix that I came within reach of starting what I finished and meeting one of several goals. Understanding these negatives to my personality will assist me as a Case Manager in understanding the strengths and weaknesses of my own humanity and my clients, thus allowing me to advocate professionally on the clients behalf.
The first thing anyone should know about me is that I am slightly unconventional. I often go off on tangents while thinking and forget what I am talking about. I love to listen to music, and I can be often found with my headphones in my ears or around my neck. I love to read, but there have not been any recent books, that I know of, that I would enjoy. While I do enjoy writing, I do not quite get how to put my thoughts on paper in a way that makes sense and still conveys the idea that I want to. I believe that this can be attributed to my constantly changing thoughts. I am a very nice person to those I consider my friends but at the same time I am very blunt and can seem insulting to those who don't know me very well. I am very sarcastic and love to tell jokes or make funny comments based on what someone else has said, or what the situation is.
I think ok, what makes me the person I am today I think of all the hardships and obstacles I have been through in my life. Even though I have been through a great ordeal it has caused me to become a stronger person, the obstacles I have faced throughout my life have given me motivation, and taught me reliablility, and responsibility. When asked about my personality, I also think of the activities that I love to do as well as my actions during my school career, in my free time I like to organize, read, help people, as well as hang out with my friends. When it comes to my school work I am very conscientious, diligent, and ambitious. If I get even a C on a test or in a class I get upset with myself and think what I could’ve done differently to receive a better grade. In my free time back home I used to babysit and tutor young children and it made me feel so good about myself because I made a difference in their life and helped them excel in the classroom. So if I could describe my personality, I would say that I am a motivated, reliable, responsible, organized, fun, intelligent, ambitious, loving and caring
My personality archetype, according to the Jung Typology test is an ESTP. As an extravert I was ranked in the 84 percentile, sensing 28 percentile, thinking 53 percentile, and perceiving at only 3 percentile. I seem to have no preference of perceiving over judging. Due to the low percentile of perceiving over judging, more than one personality type could apply; I have the tendency to swing between ESTP and ESTJ. Approximately 4.3 percent of the population falls into the category of ESTP.
What is personality? Interpersonal Skills in Organizations states, “Personality describes the relatively stable set of characteristics, tendencies, and temperaments that have been formed by heredity and social, cultural, and environmental factors”, (Janasz, Dows, Schneider, 2015, p. 8). I never gave much thought about my personality or why I am who I am.
I have positive attributes and weaknesses as everyone else does. However, since I came from Peru to America, I experienced many changes in my personality from a shy girl to an independent, outgoing and friendly teenager. My strongest personal attributes are generosity, my spirit of collaboration and my perseverance to achieve any goals and overcome obstacles in my life. For example, when I was in Peru I used to go to a hospital to help children with disabilities. I used to visit them very often. I played with them so that they could forget for a while about their sickness. At the time I could make them happy and they enjoyed a nice moment getting to know me. By helping them, I felt a great
Individuals in this world develop with a diverse set of traits, and personal aspects that are unique to themselves. That being said, some traits are more noticeable during the first interaction between you and the person. The purpose of this paper is to describe what I feel my three most prominent traits are. To be brief, I am eclectic in everything I do and I feel that I have a very diverse set of traits, being so, there are traits that stand out more than others. My first and foremost prominent trait is my attitude towards others, I feel that I am a kind person and carry myself as such when I am around others. Secondly, I am intelligible most of the time whether it is in or out of school and have an aptitude for solving problems. Lastly, my third most prominent trait is my athleticism, I enjoy keeping active whenever I get an opportunity. Analyzing the following examples and reasons stated in my paper will prove that my kindness, intelligence, and athleticism are my three most prominent traits.
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;
Observers often have a characteristic round-shouldered posture. Their necks are often not as well proportioned as other types and their heads seem to strain forwards. Their eyes have a sorrowful look about them as if they are about to be victimised in some way. Their noses are somewhat aquiline in shape which combined with often flattened cheekbones giving the false impression that their noses are large.
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
What separates a person that goes far in life from one who does not? More specifically, what is the character trait that makes the difference? The simple answer to that is motivation. I chose motivation because I think it is something that I show. Motivation is a good word to describe me because I am motivated in several aspects of life such as: school, extracurricular activities and community involvement. My personal definition of motivation is, the force that makes someone want to go above and beyond what is asked of them.
My character has both opened and closed many doors for me in life. Most of the time you will see that I'm very laid back and relaxed. Independence is one of my key qualities. I never like to bother people with my problems because ultimately they're not always going to be there for you. I roam around in silence; being loud and obnoxious is not something that has ever given me much success in life. I try to conquer a healthy and happy lifestyle, but you know how that usually goes. I am pretty athletic I believe because I have put in so much hard work and dedicated even more time to football throughout my eighteen years of life. My life experiences have given me a rebellious trait. For example, whenever I get yelled at in football by Coach
