With my personality type being ISFP, I have learned that I am able to collect a large amount of information at one and that I am able to think before I speak. I would strongly agree with this personality type. I put other people’s feelings before my own. Another thing I have learned is that I should find a job where I am able to work with people and find a job were I will be able to make good use of my ability of being able to understand facts. My possible strengths would be to make being feel comfortable and valued.
Who are you? Many fortune cookies, horoscopes, and other whimsical devices attempt to tell us our personalities, or our combination of traits and behaviors that make up who we are. However, psychologists today deviate from those unsubstantiated methods and have concocted various personality tests that give us a better understanding of who we are. One such test is called the Myers-Briggs personality test. Based on theories by Carl Jung, but primarily created by Isabel Briggs Myers and her mother, Katharine Cook Briggs, the test gives people a standardized survey of questions to answer. Standardized, meaning the test is given and scored in the exact same way every time to give unbiased and accurate results. It scores people in four pairs of characteristics, so there is a total of 16 possible personality types. Each pair of characteristics are opposites and a person can fall anywhere between the extreme end of one opposite to the extreme end of the other. The pairs are extroverted and introverted, sensing and intuition, thinking and feeling, finally judging and perceiving. A person can have strong, moderate or weak tendencies towards a preference. (Rathus, 2010, p. 420) There is some criticism of the Myers-Briggs test however, not everyone fits into the categories. People may answer according to socially acceptable norms instead of their honest answers. Not all of the theories were proven, Carl Jung made many observations and deductions but they weren’t formally
John Adams once said, “Thanks be to God that he gave me stubbornness when I know I am right”. John Adams, like myself was introverted, intellectual, thinking, and judging, or an INTJ on the Myers Briggs personality test. Like all INTJs, Adams was stubborn and flouted the ideas of others that he did not agree with. By using my results from the Meyers Briggs personality test, I can examine how I react to certain things and use this to improve my Spirituality, my relationship with God, and ultimately my relationship with others through Christ.
After taking the personality test, some of the things I already realized I do or are too familiar. The test labeled me as in an INTP, which stands for introvert, intuitive, thinking, and perceiving. Introvert basically means that you’re more focused on the internal feelings and thoughts within the person rather than the things that are on the outside. I always find myself trying to read a book whenever I’m just sitting around the house and sometimes I just want to be alone and I want peace a quiet. I know that when I’m at work, I always try to put some headphones in so that I can’t hear anything else around me. Although I’m not really listening to the headphones, I give off the illusion that I don’t want to be bothered.
I expected to be more of an intuition than sensing because I usually understand others and act in an instinct to help anyone in bad situation. In bad situation I have a habit of judging people and whining on how things could have been
Being an INTP means being a highly analytical and pensive person and I find that I fit this personality type to a tee. However the article also claims that the P (Perceiving) trait, has a 3% difference from the J trait. This means that I may have characteristics from both INTP and INTJ. As the description for INTP claims, I am often lost in thought, to the point that I can cleanly detach myself from an ongoing conversation, and still nod and say yes at all the appropriate times. I am also an argumentative person if I believe my beliefs and person are being challenged. Another point the article shines light on that resonates deeply with me is the characteristic of having a haunting sense of impending failure, however this is where I notice myself
In the webtext i completed both assessments, the first which was the Jungian Typology quiz. After taking this quiz it informed me that I am:34% Introvert, 31% Intuitive, 12% feeling and 16% judging.
When I recently took the “Who am I?” quiz, it showed that I’m ESFP. ESFP means extravert, sensing, feeling, and perceiving type of person. I have a moderate preface of extraversion over introversion, 28%. Accordingly, I have a slight preference of sensing over intuition, 16%. I also have marginal or no preference of feeling over thinking, 3%. In conclusion, I have a slight preference of perceiving over judging, 12%. Overall, this was a test that really helped me understand my personality a bit more and it is something I can't wait to take again as the years progress.
I feel my reported Myers Briggs type matched my personality fairly well, however, I definitely know that I am Percieving and not Judging for the final aspect of my personality. The “Profile of…” didn’t quite match my personality as closely as I thought it would, as there were a few phrases I could identify with, but overall I didn’t quite think it was me. The being organized and planning everything out aspect of the ISFJ Profile did not match my personality; I tend to have random energy spikes in doing my work and feel exillerated by the rush of finishing something at the very last moment. My self-estimated type in class did not match my reported type. During class, I jotted down that I was ISFP which was not the same as the ISFJ I got later
Though I have been told I have a very active imagination I am definitely a sensing type; despite sensing being my lowest score at 25% . This result ties into my observational side. I believe what I see, and
While it can be challenging for personality test to fully understand someone with just a few questions, this Myers Brigs test described me very well. I very strongly agree with the results I have received. The first letter of my score is I, which stands for introversion. I have always been more of an introvert than an extrovert. Alone time is something I have always had an appreciation for and felt was necessary for my happiness. The next letter in my type stands for sensing. This means I heavily rely on my five senses to take in information. The aspect of me can be seen in the way I learn. I feel I learn best when doing hands-on activities, which is consistent with sensing people. The third letter in my type is T, which represents thinking. Like the other personally traits from this test, this one accurately describes me. Thinking people prefer solid logic, and facts. I have always
The personality assessment inventory tests provide results on my individual personality, values, motivation, decision making, communication, team skills, conflict skills, organizational structure preference, and stress. These results are broken down briefly in three parts and do not include any personal speculation or analysis as to their meaning. The application of these results are further applied and explains how the results noted from the tests and in the first step will make me a better employee, co-worker, and manager within my organization. These tests mentioned above are applied in conjunction with particular examples on how I can achieve becoming a better employee, co-worker, and manager. An explanation of how my personality and experiences were affected by the Holy Spirit is also discussed. Particularly, how potential weaknesses have become strengths with the guidance of the Lord.
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.
