Personalities: the combination of characteristics or qualities that form an individual's distinctive character. Personalities vary within each individual, some people can be categorized into more than one personality type. There are many different personalities that an individual can be distinguished as. One way to be categorized is using the meaning behind
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.
In the past couple of weeks I found a common theme about my personality and my strengths through Strengthsfinder, MBTI, and the FOCUS 2 assessments. I have come into touch with my strengths of adaptability, competition, empathy, curiosity, communication, and consistency. On all three assessments I have learned that I
After assessing my strengths and weaknesses from the self-assessment survey, I am not surprised by the results. Prior to this survey it has always been clear on my weaknesses and my strengths pursuing a career as a therapist. I am a very sensitive person, particularly when it comes to people being violated. Often when people are emotional around me, especially telling me something that they are going through, I tend to cry with them or get as emotional with them. I don’t know how I will be able to sit and talk with a person if they are telling me about being raped, kidnapped or beaten. I know that I can overcome this because in the past I have been put in situations where people have come to me about matters such as being raped or seeing

The fourth letter represents how I prefer to organize your life. The way in which I prefer to organize my life is Judging. When I saw the word judging I was for sure this was inaccurate because I associated that with judging people. I never judge people and this word really made me feel insulted and uncomfortable. I was sure this was going to be inaccurate. In Gifts Differing: Understanding Personality Type, Isabel Briggs Myers and Peter B. Myers wrote:

My personality has changed a little bit since I was little, but I am still the same person that I was when I was little. My personality type is an ENFP so I am 22% Extravert, 9% intuitive, 41% feeling, and 44% perceiving, and it has been proven that you only change a little bit as you grow up. That is why Nurture plays a bigger role in our life. It is the
As living organisms, humans are prone to change. Evolution teaches us that those more fit and adaptable to their environment are more likely to reproduce and create offspring effecting the future behavior and structure of the population or species. This will lead to new adaptation suitable to the environment. Because humans are constantly evolving they go through many biological changes throughout the course of their life. Such changes include: puberty, menopause, and growth in general. However, have we ever thought of personality being something that changes over the course of an individual’s lifetime? Does personality change or become altered in humans as we grow and experience life and do these changes have an impact on our behavior and world view and if not will our childhood personalities predict what our personality will be as adults?
Ever since I was a child, I have had a strong bond with my family. I have always felt that I could talk to my parents and grandparents about anything. Over the years, they have given me advice that I have always taken to heart. When I was five years old and going into kindergarten, my mom told me to treat and view every single one of my classmates as if they were the most special people in the world. As a freshman in high school, my dad told me to always follow my gut and to stand up for what I believe in. I was given perhaps the biggest piece of advice from grandpa during my freshman year in college. He told me that if I worked hard, then everything would work out in the end. After completing my first week of my teaching credential program,
A psychological force that shaped my personality from childhood was that I was a realist and more conscious of the real world than most of my peers. My perception of the world as a child was more adult like than Disney sugar coated. I've always taken a realistic approach to life.
Introduction The MBT, the NEO-ipip Big Five Personality, and the VIA Character Strengths Survey are three personality inventories that can help to show people what traits they have and do not have, and what traits they should try to lessen or work on. My findings from these tests showed me some things that I knew and agreed with, however, I also got some results that were surprising and made me think about how I come across and who I am as a person.

Outgoing and spontaneous, or level headed and reserved: these are ways in which people identify the others surrounding them every day. These personality indicators may seem easy to distinguish; however, at times, finding one’s own personality type can be difficult. In the early 1900s, a Swedish psychologist named
