A person’s personality is his or her essence. It is what guides decisions, emotions, and even thoughts. Some may wonder if it is possible to explore every nuance of such a complex part of a being, but there are ways to determine what type of personality a person has, and then branch off into a more detailed examination of that person specifically. Combined with other factors, such as personality disorders and the environment that someone has grown up in, the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, or MBTI, test (Enrichment 1) and analysis can determine an accurate portrayal of a personality. Created in 1943 by Katherine Briggs and Isabel Briggs Myers, it is a system made up of four basic functions and sub functions that combine to make a personality type. The mother and daughter team constructed it off of Jung’s theories (History 2). Based on this system, one of the most common personality types in the US population is called an ESTJ, and one of the least common personality types is called an INFJ. There are many differences and similarities between these two types. An ESTJ personality, overall, is practical, fact-based, and outgoing, whereas an INFJ personality is more private and makes decisions based on feelings; however, both are organized people who make good leaders and are capable of great success in roles that involve helping others.
After taking the Jung Typology Test my four letters were ENFJ. According to these results my personality type is that of an extraverted individual. It states that I am a person who is outgoing, generous, talkative. It highlights I am a person who likes to be social and values relationships and collective values. I agree with this because I do believe that I am a person who loves to interact with people.
They suggest that measuring one’s characteristics such as sociability, drive, self-determination and demeanor can aid one to better interpret and discern them introspectively. By taking the Myers-Briggs Type Inventory (MBTI) I am able to compare my personality traits to careers in which I may enjoy, will fit my individual personality and enable me to be successful say Drummond, Jones & Sheperis (2016). The results of my self-administered inventory are as follows; Introvert (I) 55%, Intuitive (N) 76%, Feeling (F) 86% and Perceiving (P) 67%. The four dimensions of the inventory seem to be very accurate for the manner in which I view myself. The result of INFP suggests that my personality shows a predominant association with being in a career in which I am able to care for others, such as a healer. This is a correlate with my first career as a firefighter and

In the TypeFocus Assessment online worksheet my four-letter personality type was ESFP. This meant that I was friendly and outgoing and I also live for the moment. I am fun to be around, help others enjoy life with taking the best out of some situations, and interested in meeting new people. Making my own rules and bending them are also descriptions of me according to the survey, which I have to agree with. In the interests, it said that I was Realistic, which means I have an athletic or mechanical ability, prefer to work with objects, machines, outdoors, and prefer to work with things other than people. Another interest I had was Social; this meant that I like to work with people and help, train, or help live up to their potential. I did not
This would be the second time within the last month that I have taken the Meyers-Briggs Personality Type quiz. I was amazed at my results only because one stated that I was an extrovert, while the last one said I was an introvert. The last three of the personality types however, remained the same. For this research, I will use the last one which indicated that I was an INTJ, which is Introvert, Intuitive, Thinking and Judging. This describes me perfectly.
A physical therapist helps those who have gone through a traumatic injury to get back on their feet. Helping people make progress on an injury that brought their world down is something that interests me. Seeing a smile on a patient's face after helping them walk, run, or play their sport again is why I want to pursue being a physical therapist. Knowing that I helped someone after a difficult time in their life is what warms my heart and would motivate me to help more and more people. I get along with people great so helping, talking and motivating patients would be an easy skill that I would be able to perform. The Myers Briggs Test concluded that I was, “Introvert, Sensing, Feeling, Judging (ISFJ),” and states that, “ISFJs are good with people in small groups or one on one situations because of their patient and genuinely sympathetic approach to dealing with others (Myers Briggs Test).” Being in the physical therapist field, I will work one on one with all the patients to help make them stronger until they carry out their goal of walking, running, or playing their sport
In the following paragraphs I will attempt to deconstruct the personality Myers-Briggs Type Indicator known as ENFP. The individual attributes of the type indicator will be discussed as to how they affect my work and social life. Once a basic understanding of the MBTI is explained I will discuss how these traits complicate my work environment. Finally, my personal worldview will be discussed; specifically, how this newly gained knowledge has reshaped my worldview. This will all be discussed in the first person.
Each and every individual has different personalities, however these personalities can be grouped into 16 different types through Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) (Myersbriggs.org, 2016). Being able to acknowledge what type of personality others contribute too, allows one to understand them and their strength and weakness. No type is better than another, each type faces situations in different ways, to determine ones personality type the MBTI test can be calculated to allow one to know which personality group they accompany (Myersbriggs.org, 2016). The test determines whether a person is Extrovert Vs Introvert, Sensing Vs Intuitive, Thinking, Vs Feeling, and Judging Vs Perceiving. Through this test I was placed in the ENFP group which
During the power point on the Myers Briggs Type Indicator, as the instructor went through the different types of personalities, I was able to recognize which subcategories I fall into almost instantly. When my computer personality test results were returned, I was correct. As I read the type descriptions of Extroversion, Intuition, Feeling, and Judging- ENFJ- I quickly recognized myself within the descriptive words.
The Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) enables an individual to gain a deeper insight into their inherent personality traits. For some people, they have had prior knowledge or underlying assumptions about their personality, but this test provides clearer information about each of their identifiable traits. According to the MBTI in Human-metric personality test, my scores were 22% (E) extroverted thinking more than introverted, 9% (N) intuitive as oppose to sensing, 16% (T) thinking more than feeling, and 12% (J) judging as compared to perceiving. Thus, my personality type is ENFJ. The ENFJ personality group is described as a minority group that consists of natural-born leaders, and people filled with passion, and charisma for example, Barack Obama and Oprah Winfrey; they are notable members of this group, also known as the protagonists (16personalities, 2016). The protagonists apprehend pride in providing guidance for others to improve individually and to improve the community at large (16personalities, 2016). The protagonists find it naturally easy to communicate with others and excel at communicating with other people in person (16personalities, 2016).
Based on the work of Carl Jung, Isabel Myers and Katherine Briggs developed the Myers-Briggs Personality Type Indicator, a self-inventory geared toward helping individuals determine their personality types and individual areas of strength. “By helping people understand themselves, Myers and Briggs believed that they could help people select occupations that were best suited to their personality types and lead healthier, happier lives” (Cherry, 2015). This test, through helping me explore my own personality, likes and dislikes, strengths and weaknesses, and various preferences and compatibilities, has been instrumental in affirming my
In conclusion, my life in the retail realm has placed me ahead of the curve. When I graduate with my bachelors, I would have already gained the skills I need to speak with a person with calmness, while they are freaking out. I will have learned the importance of a well managed workplace relationship between coworkers and my higher authorities. Furthermore, a job in retail is not just a after school job but it takes a person who is willing to absorb all the knowledge of how to keep a functioning business
I used the MMDI test which gives you similar result to the Myers-Briggs test. My results were ESTJ. The letter E stands for Extraversion. An extrovert gets their energy from other people and tends to like working in groups. They typically learn though interacting with their surrounds and engaging with the environment. S stands for sensing. This scale focuses on how you receive information. These people learn from facts, typically have more common sense, and are good with memorizing facts. Next, letter is a T, which stands for thinking. This scale tells you how you like to make decisions. These people typically use logic and reasoning to make decisions and analyze and weigh different evidence when trying to make different decisions. Lastly, I tested the letter J, which stands for judging. This scale tells the person about their life style and work habits. These people typically live a very structured and orderly life. They are known to plan ahead and are very well organized.
