This paper will discuss my results of the Jung Typology Test and how I can use these results to help improve my organizational behavior to strive to become a better employee, coworker and aspiring leader. God created all his children with different talents, “But now, O Lord, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand” (King James Version) and the result of those talents bestowed upon us are displayed in our individual personalities that help shape our worldview.

In the following assessments: DISC Index and the Jung Typology (Myers-Briggs) Personality was available for me to test my personality and my behavioral traits.

The Jung Typology Test categorized me as an ENFJ personality type – Extravert (1%), Intuitive (28%), Feeling (19%), and Judging (66%) (Humanmetrics, 1998). This particular mix of traits may be categorized using the following words: persuader, structured, caring, upbeat, sensitive, affirming, happy, harmonious, and defensive (Kroeger, Thuesen, & Rutledge, 2002). Kroeger, Thuesen, & Rutledge note the following about the workplace contributions of ENFJ personality types
Based on the Jungian personality assessment, my Jung type is INTP; which is amazingly spot on. The INTP personality type is one of the rarest, making up only three percent of the population, which is exactly how I’d like it. Just the thought of being “common” makes me cringe. A prime example of this is my preferred name, Curtis. My full name is Jon Curtis Miller and I prefer to go by my middle name. For as long as I can remember, when asked why I go by my middle name instead of my first, my response has always been, “There are too many Jon’s in the world, I’m not another Jon.” I pride myself on being unique.
After taking the Personality Assessment: Jung’s Typology test, I got my result was introversion, intuition, thinking and judging. Although I got this satisfied result, actually I think I may not perfect as the result showed. However, this test improves my confident to figure out the coming project, because I believe I like thinking and make the project better. This test also told me that I am an introversion and intuition person. I agree with it, but I don't think it is a bad thing for people having introversion personality, because I believe whatever you are the extroversion one or introversion; you would have your own advantage. According to our textbook, “ Learn to control your frustration to help you keep different personality types focused
The study of personalities is often a complex and daunting task. Trying to determine why people are the way they are, why they do what they do, and how they will react to certain situations has been the focus of many personality assessments.

Delegation has been a difficult skill for me to perform because I don’t want to burden others with tasks when I am capable of doing it myself. My goal is to improve my delegation skills in order to improve my time management, decrease overall stress, and to expand my communication skills. Not only is delegation important for me to gain leadership skills, but it is important to be able to pass skills and abilities on to other team members.
The Myers-Briggs test was developed from Carl Jungs theory of “personality types” by Isabel Briggs Myers and her mother Katherine Briggs (Myers, I. B. 2000, pg 6). In order to determine an individual’s type of personality this test was created with specific questions on how information is processed. This test determines whether and individual directs their energy in an introverted or extroverted way. Briggs-Myers tests our life organization through perception and judging and also how information is processed through our intuition and sensing. This test is said to “provide a powerful framework for building better relationships, driving positive change, harnessing innovation, and achieving excellence”. (Myers, I. B. 2000, pg 2).
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) was originally constructed to serve as a personality type indicator for personnel selection purposes.Today, usage is different from when the test was originally developed. The MBTI is now used for anyone that wants to know what their results would be, whether they need it or not. The test is available for professional administration, likely for a fee, and self administration, at no monetary cost. The test results can yield sixteen different combinations of the four dichotomous categories which include: extroverted (E) or introverted (I), intuitive (N) or sensing (S), thinking (T) or feeling (F),
The organization will implement the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) personality profile test. Current employees who are staying in their current positions are still subjected to the assessment being we want all employees to be comfortable with new hires. Testing current employees will show where the company is behavioral wise with personalities, and management can have better understanding of their employees. In the current process of the reorganization, any employee that transitions into a different role will go through the process of internal hiring. The organization is planning on having the MBTI part of the organization’s hiring process, therefore implementing this new culture efficiently is a top priority. BoardMan will create a job satisfaction survey to help with the Myers-Briggs testing.
