In this paper, I discussed my personal theory regarding the integration of Christianity and psychology, as it relates to my beliefs, and how the summation of these two components will be reflected in my future counseling practice. I considered several factors that were critical to my personal counseling theory. First, I considered the human personality, such as, individual differences, motivations, and human development. Each person is unique; however, both Christianity and psychology have discovered common threads that are woven throughout the human race, and I believe that information is imperative to the counseling process. Next,
This profile instrument was very informative and at the same time confirmed the characteristics that I thought I possessed. Each one of us has some characteristics that are assets and some that need work—strengths and weaknesses that we all possess. As employees in a company, all of our characteristics work together as part of the business. Being part of a business or the corporate world, we all have different tasks, talents, and characteristics that we bring to the organization. People work together, much like organs as they function together within a human body. “Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others” Romans 12:4 (New International Version). It takes time and effort to develop as a well-rounded individual. Potentially, no one employee is better than another based on
Through this assignment, we will examine individual traits and how they integrate into organizational behavior. This project is conveyed from the first-person based on my personal experiences and results based on my answers from the “Project 2 Assessment” from McGraw Hill Connect. From the information gathered we discuss in three-parts, my personality triats, working with others, and my experience within an organizational setting. My paper will culminate by discussing my personal reflection of my strengths and weaknesses regarding the engagement of the Holy Spirit through them.
Summary The Jesus Life Coach book by Laurie Beth Jones helped me as a life coach to understand how to help my agents infuse their spiritual values into their personal lives and at the work place. The book displays four key principles of infusing the spiritual life to create a balance, formulate goals, enjoy productivity, as well as attain fulfillment of one’s personal goals and heavenly success. Jones’ (1798) book has a wealth of information and inspiration that will motivate one to excel and enjoy all walks of life. Jones uses spiritual values to get you thinking, working, and achieving all your goals and dreams.
Self-assessments can be beneficial, as they allow one to better understand how they communicate and how they form relationships. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, the Johari Window, and the pillow method are examples of these evaluations. In this paper, I will use these three self-assessments to illustrate the ways in which I communicate and interact with people.
This article was of interest to me, because as a practicing Christian Life Coach, it was helpful to learn about assessment methods, specifically designed to capture the client’s spiritual inclinations, and to learn how that information can be used to help them achieve their goals.
“Integrative Approaches to Psychology and Christianity, An Introduction to Worldview Issues, Philosophical Foundations and Models of Integration” is a book written by David N. Entwistle that offers insight and awareness to the relationship between psychology and theology. Psychology and theology share a common interest in the nature and purpose of human beings. This book introduces worldview issues and a philosophical source that provides a framework of the relationship between the science of psychology and Christianity. This book increases awareness that the assumptions we all make concerning both psychology and theology can led to misinterpretations and confusion. According to Entwistle (2010), the primary intention of this book is to help readers understand the issues that form integration and how integration can be applied and experienced in individual and corporate life.
I participated in a series of Self-Assessments by Robbins and Judge (2008) to be conscious of my personality, to recognize how I work with others, and to figure out life in organizations. Organizational behavior is a dynamic force of research, advancing toward enriching and enhancing the workforce. First, I must understand myself toward becoming an effective employee, co-worker, or manager. As a result, I am directed toward the advancement of the knowledge of these discoveries. These self-assessments encompass the framework of my paper, and my responses are compared with abundant studies. Significantly, I exist as a being uniquely designed by God, but these self-assessment results deserve ample credit. Regardless, of classification from these self-assessments, covenantal approaches aligning with God’s law show relevance. However, I am captivated with these discoveries. In addition, I used the Organizational Behavior textbook by Robbins & Judge (2009); Organizational Communication Presentation by Fischer; “The Gospel and Personal Reflection” article by Fischer (2006); and “Toward a Periodic Table of Personality: Mapping Personality Scales Between the Five-Factor Model and the Circumplex Model” article by Anderson & Woods (2016).
Self assessments have been used widely in recent decades. The usefulness and truthfulness of these assessments depend entirely upon the user. Utilizing a self assessment tool for the betterment of self is the goal of this report. In this report, I have completed 3 different self assessments to analyze myself. The first assessment that will be discussed is the Jung Personality Test. The next one will be the Team Role Preference Survey followed by the Work Locus of Control Survey. Each of these surveys focuses on various behavioural and personality traits. The Jung Personality Test focuses on four principal physiological
The self-assessment test (Bethel University, 2014) was a learning experience for me as it showed how much life experience a person absorbs over the years. Skills that would have been an issue for me when I was younger, such as speaking, (Bethel University, 2014) does not seem to be such an issue now.
Companies have started to use personality tests in the past five years so that they can find a potential employee’s strengths and weaknesses. If questions and answers are quite accurate and test is done properly it can help an employer to find more about person’s advantages and disadvantages. It is very important to know because one of the most important points is that most of personality tests help to recognize unqualified candidates. “Although experts warn that many personality assessments don't deliver what they promise, legitimate scientifically validated tests are helping employers evaluate job candidates to select those best suited for particular positions. Other tests are designed to measure intelligence, honesty, management aptitude and other qualities.”
This paper observes the results of personality traits. The paper is divided into three parts. The first portion of the paper identifies personality traits of the author.

In studying for the Priesthood, it is very necessary to have a background in Human Psychology. In everyday ministry the Priest works with people on a one on one and group basis. It is essential that when working for the good of others you understand their make-up and can offer the correct support, help, and recommendations. For the health of the person’s spiritual life we need to also look after their psychological life. Throughout this course, the information taught was extremely valuable and was a great overview of the different aspects of the Human Psychology. It was a difficult task to limit myself to just five aspects because I feel that all aspects will assist me in my ministry.
