clear understandings. Highly value knowledge, competence and logic. Quiet and reserved, hard to get to know well. Individualistic, having no interest in leading or following others. And lastly the Executive; Assertive and outspoken - they are driven to lead. Excellent ability to understand difficult organizational problems and create solid solutions. Intelligent and well-informed, they usually excel at public speaking. They value knowledge and competence, and usually have little patience with inefficiency or disorganization. I am not just a “hermit” but a collection of different personality types that have some over lapping characteristics such as being a logical thinker, who values and consumes vast amounts of information and in turn I apply that information to daily life in an effort to bring meaning and understanding to problems both with myself and the world in general. It is also incredibly hard to get to know me and I prefer to be alone. A characteristic of an extrovert. Or more precise the personality traits of an extrovert, since the words personality type is sort of ambiguous and no one fits perfectly into either one, but leans more towards one than another. I am physically and psychologically drained by social gatherings. Introverts are the opposite and become charged with energy at say a Thanksgiving Day gathering. I prefer to be alone and I spend my time alone doing things that make me happy, which is researching, reading, talking to other’s online about

Introversion are traits where a person is more mindful of their own thoughts and feelings rather than their surrounding environment. Have you ever met someone that seemed to be more reserved than others? Someone who tends to keep their emotions private? Someone who is more of a social
There are many different personality types. The four dimensions of personality are: extravert or introvert; sensing or intuitive; thinking or feeling; judging or perceptive. Extroverts are energized by social interactions, like to be the center of attention and talkative. The opposite of extrovert is introvert.
My personality is defined as “Guardian” which fits my personality perfectly. Guardians are practical and down-to-earth, but they know how to have funs with their friends. They take their duties seriously, are hard workers and are dependable and trustworthy. They are most comfortable when life is structured (Keirsey, n.d.). I am a loyal friend who like to have fun, but follow the rules. My friends have said I am their “voice of reason”. I enjoy socializing with my close group of friends, but I am cautious when meeting new people. I enjoy watching sports, probably because there are defined sets of rule which allow for a fair turn for each team. I do not like when plans change suddenly. I am a planner and when things change I have to alter my plans.
I would describe my personality as diligent, fun loving, and adaptive. I enjoy spending time with my friends and my sorority, yet I have taken on a position within that sorority that requires me to be on top of nearly all details taking place. I enjoy working hard to make sure everyone else has a smooth-running sorority experience. I like to go with the flow and enjoy like as it comes!
Personality wise, I am honest and try my very best in going towards my goal. I am also very patient with others and willing to cooperate in activities for the benefit of the better good and inspiration. I will admit I am a shy person, but once you get to know me I am outgoing. Meeting new people is not a new experience to me since I am used to new environments. Being involved in my generation helps me value myself more and to stay motivated and active. My interests in the future can change or even personally develop again but I would like to think for now, all I need is my motivation and positivity to keep learning and to never give
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
These personality traits can be seen in Plato’s “The Allegory of the Cave.” Plato discusses how the prisoners have been chained their whole lives “they have been there since childhood, fixed in the same place, with their necks and legs fettered, able to see only in front of them, because their bodies prevent them from turning their heads around” (3). Being a cave dweller is analogous to introversion because the prisoners live their whole lives in the dark and therefore only understand the dark. When they are brought up into the light, they have trouble accepting the new world surrounding them. Exposure to the new world symbolizes the introverted tendency to become resistant to change and narrow-minded when confronted with opposing views. In order to change, the prisoners have to explore the vast unknown, which requires a personal transformation from darkness to light. Darkness to light relates to the journey from introversion to extraversion.
The first letter of my four-letter personality type is “I”, suggesting that I am an externally driven person. There are two different worlds that we live in. An introvert lives inside of their thoughts. I prefer to live outside of myself. I enjoy talking to other people. I am quite social and enjoy throwing parties and organizing social events like cook outs. I listen to what others are saying. I prefer to cook my own food. I also enjoy working on my car, home improvement, and Do It Yourself (DIY) projects. Proverbs 13:4 tells us," A sluggard’s appetite is never filled, but the desires of the diligent are fully satisfied." (Holy Bible, New International Version, 2001) While I do enjoy being by myself occasionally I prefer to be around others. When I start a task I prefer to
Introverts, in my opinion, would make great leaders. For one when a big decision is being made introverts like to take the time out to think before making a big decision official. To me, they look at the problem on a larger scale. They think for not only themselves but for everybody whether it's in a classroom or an office. Extroverts to me try to make the big decision on their own without
An introvert is a person that gathers their energy from within and requires time alone and would prefer to communicate by ways such as email and by writing and maybe texting they seem to prefer not to talk face to face and are not great public speakers. Introverts are often said to be reserved. They are often said to enjoy the quiet and this is what
Introversion was defined as “withdrawn and often shy, and they tend to focus on themselves, on their own thoughts and feelings” (Jung, 1923) Therefore focusing on this personality trait can help to better understand why people tend to be reserved and withdrawn from everyday life. Carl Jung was the creator of the neopsychoanalytical approach, which focused on psychic energy. While Gordon Allport and Hans Eysenck contributor to the trait theory, focused on biology and individualized traits. Jung, Eysenck and Allport focused on extrovert vs. introvert, yet had completely different ideas of how introversion is seen in everyday life. Personally believeing this trait is one I carry, focusing on completely different approaches will bring light to many explanations of why people act the way they do, including myself. By using both case studies and personal work from the works of Jung, Eysenck, and Allport researching introversion should not be a an issue. Although there is a lot of work to do with introversion, through this research one can get a better overview.
To begin, I took the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator assessment. This assessment has been a reliable source for documenting personality and focuses on four dimensions of personality: extraversion or introversion, sensing or intuition, thinking or feeling, and judging or perceiving (Ledlow & Coppola, 2014). Based on my results, I would be categorized as ESFJ (extraversion, sensing, feeling, judging) personality type. ESFJs focus on the outside world and assess their experiences subjectively. They largely base their judgments on their belief system and on the effects of actions on people. ESFJs are literal and concrete, trusting the specific, factual information gathered through their physiological senses. They are often skilled at bringing out the best in people, and they want to understand other points of view. They are serious about their responsibilities, seeing what needs to be done and then doing it. Generally proficient at detailed tasks, they enjoy doing little things that make life easier for others. ESFJs seek structured, controlled environments, and tend to be good at creating a sense of order. They value the rule of law and expect
Introverts are people who spend time thinking and reflecting before they act. Their motivation is internal, which might end up closing them off from the world around them. Introverts usually prefer one-to-one relationships, and only express intimacy with a few family members or close friends. Introverts also love doing activities that allow them to be put in an organizational position. Occasionally, introverts will shut down and close off from all of those around them. Personally, I believe that is a completely accurate description of myself. I also plan out my days ahead of time, and I love being able to put things together. While I sometimes I think that it is a negative thing, I do tend to close off from my circle, which happens to be very small. If I do get to meet my goal of being a teacher, my introversion definitely yields to potential for problems. Getting out of my shell would be a challenge, without a doubt. That being said, my introversion is mostly geared towards others my age. I am usually very comfortable around people that are older or younger than I am, which makes me believe I would probably be okay. Other than having to overcome the challenge of opening up, being an introvert does have upsides, such as having an urge to get things done.
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.
Encompassing a significant portion of human knowledge such as the arts and physics, an academic discipline is a subject area studied in higher education. Over time, knowledge in academic disciplines naturally develops and advances. Knowledge is what one acknowledges to be true because one believes in the evidence provided. Knowledge quality can be a measure of the degree of excellence of the knowledge gained. Personal knowledge can then be of quality when it is useful to the individual, and shared knowledge, when it contributes to societal wellbeing and advancement. However, such a definition suggests numerous issues. First, quality can be abstract and difficult to measure. Next, not every type of knowledge is equally useful to everyone; knowledge gained doesn’t have equal quality for everyone. Additionally, methods of gaining knowledge are developing, so how can the quality of knowledge found a century ago compare to ten years ago? Knowledge at any point is considered to be of the best quality at the time, but this standard of quality changes. What was of quality yesterday may not be so today.
