I took the big 5 personality test and scored over 50% in 4 traits. The trait that I scored the highest in was conscientiousness. I scored 97% in conscientiousness and can honestly say that I can relate to this trait. When it comes to a project I never give up no matter how difficult it may be. I am also very organized; I always keep my room clean and reorganize my purse daily. Punctuality is also important to me; I have never been late to work throughout my entire life. I usually plan accordingly so I can always make it to my appointments on time. Another trait that I scored high on was agreeableness. I scored 91% on agreeableness. Daily when I’m crossing paths with strangers I usually shoot them a smile and tell them hello. I am also very
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;
One experience in my life where I was successful and used these specific personality dimensions was when I was a Production Supervisor at a fast paced food manufacturing plant. I learned the process inside and out which enabled me to step in and help out when needed at many levels of the production process. The trust that I gained and willingness to step in and help at any level also gave me respect and trust which in a goal oriented fast paced production
One of them being conscientiousness. Conscientious people are very driven and orderly. They set goals and firm plans to achieve these goals. Rarely are they spontaneous or disorganized. My score within the Big Five Personality Profile was moderate for conscientiousness. I would say that I do exhibit some of these characteristics. I can be very organized and reliable. As a weakness, I find that I am not always a self-starter. I will set goals and stick to them, but need that push from others to get started. For instance, I was given the opportunity to work on an exciting new project at work that involves direct feedback from employees that I would personally deliver to upper management. This would be a big responsibility as I would be representing hundreds of employees and voice the current concerns of our group. I was asked to think it over. While processing the position, three others volunteered and I lost out of the opportunity. I took my time and wasn’t as organized in my decision making, therefore I missed out greatly.
The last category scored a little lower. In the enterprising category, I scored a 58.333. The individuals who relate to enterprising are “the persuaders”. People within this category like to lead. They enjoy activities that are competitive and require selling and promoting. Additionally, these individuals are self-confident and talkative both of these characteristics reflect my personality. There are definitely some consistencies within these three categories.
The personality traits that are useful in this career are enjoying managing or leading people, being business oriented, being able to adapt easily, being dependable, having integrity, and paying attention to detail. My own personality does match up with these traits well. When I took the personality quiz on mynextmove.org, my highest score was in the social skills area. This didn’t surprise me at all because I do enjoy being around other people and listening to others. I think this skill is useful as a medical office manager because I will work with and around people all day every day. I must be able to adapt to the differences and qualities each person brings to the job. The one area that I feel I could use more work in is the leadership aspect. I have never felt like much of a leader, I took well to the guidance of others, but the older I get the more confident and controlled I feel. Also, with the knowledge I will gain at
My personality type is logistician(ISTJ). Some generally qualities are independent, logical, loyal, responsible, serious, organized, quiet and a rule follower etc. I found most of these qualities to be true about myself. I like working alone and think before I act. I need to have the facts before I set my k da to something. I'm pretty loyal since I keep things to myself and people can rely on me when they need some assistance. I am kind of quiet when I don't know where I am at or who I'm going to be dealing with. I don't like to be social and make conversations to others. I stay by myself until someone comes to me and speaks first. I can be serious at times but I'm a goofball and I like to be silly and sarcastic. I'm also a tile follower I
I tend to avoid anything that makes a goal that I am striving to achieve difficult. I prefer to just take the simple way out instead of doing things the hard way. The fourth personality type was Unflappable/Calm; I tend to do things very last minute because I am not rattled by time constraints. I work well under pressure. The fifth is quiet, I am a person of little words and so I don’t say much. I am more of a listener and tend to gather information in order to come to a conclusion regarding problem. Overall, I thought the assessment was correct in describing my personality. At the end of the assessment, I was given my strengths and weaknesses based on my personality type. My strengths included being able to work well in constantly changing environments, the ability to put others at ease, ability to observe, being able to figure out simple solutions to complicated situations, and doing what is on my mind instead of talking about what I’m planning to do. My weaknesses or challenges are the inability to plan long term, dislike for repetition, I’m a huge procrastinator, too independent which hurts the people who work with me, because I think I can take on projects alone, I don’t let my team now of what is taking place so they are left blindsided (not
the personality assessment and reflection assignment in the FYE 105 class helped to put my personality traits, and type into perspective with the given definitions and examples throughout the project. I discovered that my personality type was “the Defender”, and my top strengths are being loyal, hardworking, practical, and supportive. Conversely, my top weaknesses are taking things to personally, overloading myself, repressing my feelings, and being shy. With this information in my “mental toolbox” I will be able to focus on and utilize my strengths to ensure success while at the same time working to build up my weaknesses and reduce their impact. Having this information and consistently working to improve myself by utilizing what I have learned about my personality will allow me to align individual and professional goals in a productive way to achieve my career pathway, and personal
After taking the 91 question test, I came up with a tie of ESFJ and ENFJ. However I find that I identify more with the ENFJ personality type based on the descriptions that I read. The ENFJ stands for Extraversion, Intuition, Feeling and Judging. Individuals with these combined personality types tend to be responsible, sociable, sympathetic, and responsive to praise and criticism. This personality type defines those who enjoy working with other people, are conscientious and are able to express thoughts freely, has more insight and enjoys reading. When the ENFJ group is put in a work situation, they may be interested in others jobs and how they are performed, enjoy working with new skills, can oversimplify tasks, enjoy harmony in the workplace and will ensure that it is there, dislikes telling people unpleasant things, and work best when they can plan their work and follow that exact plan. The ENFJ personality also has weaknesses. Often times, they take criticism to heart, avoid conflict whenever possible, and are prone miscommunication. They need to work on understanding how to communicate with other personality types. When communicating with introverts, it's important to allow time for that person to trust you personally before having a business-esque conversation. When speaking with “sensors” you must be sure to be practical, realistic, and direct, however, when
My assessment stated: Introvert (67%), Intuitive (50%), Thinking (25%), and Judging (22%). On my behalf, this is accurate. Heiss (2015) view of INTJ, “To complicate matters, INTJs are usually extremely private people, and can often be naturally impassive as well, which makes them easy to misread and misunderstand.” I see myself as a private person and do not often have small talks and it is often mistaken that I am egotistic. I don’t like to share my personal life with random individuals. Intuition focuses on the future and the possibilities. I see myself constantly thinking of the possibilities of what is possible when I receive my degree, in hopes of becoming successful. Thinking involves logic and analyzing, and I often have make sure I obtain the information before I make a decision. I am often told that I overanalyze a simple question or decision. I’d like to think, than use my feelings to make a decision. As for judging, I’d like to have plans in place and have structure. This personality assessment has provided me a perspective of my leadership styles with my personality and the possibilities of the type of career would serve me
After reading Lake and Von Baeyer's article, "Tips for Successful Students." I would have to say my strongest characteristic is definitely time management. I have many responsibilities, and I use time management in every part of my work and home life. If I do not use time management in my life, it seems like I do not have enough time to complete my tasks. This leads to chaos in my day. By using time management it makes my day go a lot smoother. I do not want to pull my hair out by the end of the day. What helps me is using an organizer, calendar, and even my cell phone. This helps me keep on track with everything.
My personality ‘type’ is ENTJ, which stands for Extravert, iNtuitive, Thinking, and Judging. I personally see it as a pro to be an extravert because being able to communicate with other people and having social skills is imperative to having a successful career, no matter what the field is. I’ve also come to know that it’s never raw talent or booksmarts that allow you to excel at your craft, it’s having the ability to not only be able to try new things, but also not letting your feelings drive your decisions. These
The StrengthsFinder 2.0, DISC, and Jung Typology personality assessments almost described me with the same leadership style. The StrengthsFinder 2.0 found me; Strategic, Learner, Achiever, Communication, and Maximizer. Jung Typology personality gave me ESTJ; extraverted, sensing, thinking, and judging. These three tests led me to discover myself in the area of leadership. I found myself Strategic, logical, and responsible. I am extraverted thinking working, which means my major instruction is in discovering which is logical in the actions.
