I am a kind and caring person even when it is sometimes not wanted. I work hard and make sure what is due gets done, I am not the type of person to skip out on assignments. I go mow lawns for my grandparents, Oscar and Corinnia, to help them out. They need help cleaning their house sometimes, I never really tell them no. I will dust off the shelves, along with sweep and mop the floors. They have done so much for me that I could never repay them for it, helping them clean is one way. My friends can trust me with basically anything, I will not tell someone who did what unless it is specified that I can. I am good with secrets because I usually forget about it unless it is brought up in a conversation. I also take care of my brother when I get home from doing whatever I need to
Before taking the personality test, I really wondered what personality I have, because I have not thought deeply about my character. Through this test, I am able to think more about my personality, and it was great opportunity to look back on my past time. My score in the Kiersey Temperamentsorter II is that I am a Guardian. It means that they serve and preserve the most important social situations. They tend to keep running smoothly in families, communities, schools, churches, and hospitals. One of their characteristics is that they often have duty and cautiousness on traditions and credentials. Also, they have a pride with being hard-working and helpful. Besides, they like to have fun with their friends and families, but they pretty take
And I have tendencies to keep everything to myself, or just keep it inside of my head . I become very analytical about my surroundings and situations. I keep my opinions and feelings to myself, which prevents others from feeling like I am bombarding them with my personal issues and problems. This can become problematic though because this causes me to bottle up my emotions and feelings about a lot of things, causing my personal problems to constantly pile up and become very problematic in the future. Whenever I am around others, I do not tend to be emotional around them or with them. I do not feel like others should be involved in my personal affairs that I feel do not affect them. This however, causes my peers and other people to think that I lack emotion, and I tend to bottle them up which can become problematic in the future. I am not an outspoken person, and approach all of my relationships, family or friend, in a rather reserved way. In life, I would much rather prefer fewer, more personal relationships with those I am very close with than having many loose acquaintances whom I am not very close with. In relationships, I perceive myself as the more selfish one, or taker. As much as I do not want to admit this, I rarely am the one who frees up time or makes time for those I am close with. I run on my own clock the majority of the time, and that is not good if I desire
The Keirsey Temperament Sorter-II is an instrument to determine an individual’s personality traits. Each of us has different personalities. Those personalities that we acquired through our parents, guardians or that we learned ourselves. To understand another individual, we have to understand ourselves first. The Keirsey Temperament Sorter-II provides a better understanding for each temperament or characteristic of a person and how an individual interacts with other personality types. Having this tool can help an individual to make a better choice in life, especially in a workplace where there are so many types of diverse groups.
My personality is defined as “Guardian” which fits my personality perfectly. Guardians are practical and down-to-earth, but they know how to have funs with their friends. They take their duties seriously, are hard workers and are dependable and trustworthy. They are most comfortable when life is structured (Keirsey, n.d.). I am a loyal friend who like to have fun, but follow the rules. My friends have said I am their “voice of reason”. I enjoy socializing with my close group of friends, but I am cautious when meeting new people. I enjoy watching sports, probably because there are defined sets of rule which allow for a fair turn for each team. I do not like when plans change suddenly. I am a planner and when things change I have to alter my plans.
When being a kid you change personalities a lot, but me I have not. I’ve been a ESTJ (extraverted, sensing, thinking, judging) person my whole life. I think being a ESTJ really describes me well. Being a ESTJ means you are a joiner, you also like being the authority, they are very out spoken people too. These things describe me perfectly. I love being in power, I also let people hear what's on my mind. I love joining in on things too.
I'm very articulate and confident in what I say. I love debates and tend to be quite overbearing with my opinions. I'm also a writer. I am very passionate about what I write. The stories that I write tend to not have a meaning. The story is meant to let the reader explain what happened, though not being sure of it, leading up to many themes. I'm a very cheerful person and I'm not as socially awkward. I try to be friends with everyone and tend to be overbearing on that concept. I'm that type of person who would say a compliment to a stranger with no
According to Advocate personality, I am extremely private for my personal lives, even to close friends. I do not trust anyone easily, I trust in myself. Moreover, I am a perfectionist. I often like to make work perfect therefore if I don't feel that it is finish, I wouldn't show it of it is not good enough based on my quality level. It might be wonderful quality in many ways, but since I get so many ideas, I tend to move on to the next idea before finishing the previous idea. I often fail to manage my time. I usually think that I need to do the work as much as I can, so in the future I will be able to less stress in meeting deadlines. Additionally, I sometimes struggle to be punctual if I do not see the importance of those things, but I know
I interviewed three people and how they view me as an individual, I wasn’t too surprise with the responses I received because I can see why they would think that way about me. Some positive things that were said about me are that I’m very responsible, dependable and hardworking. I, myself had also thought I was hardworking; I like to achieve all my goals and get everything done. I’m reliable because everyone knows if they ask me to do something and I’m able to do it, it will get done. That’s sort of where my perfectionist kicks in, where everything has to be done right and in order. A few negative things that my family thought was being hardheaded, impatient and having a bad attitude. I admit that I’m hardheaded because I don’t listen to what people tell me even if they know for a fact it’s a bad decision. I like to make my own mistakes and learn from them because if you don’t learn from your mistakes you’re going to keep making them. I also agree that I’m intolerant because I have no patience to wait for anything. I get easily frustrated when something
Another characteristic of my personality is care. Despite my ever-present introversion, I have always harbored a deep care for most people. Early in my childhood, my parents taught the importance of caring for others. Throughout my life, I have always put others before myself. Sometimes I do this out of genuine care for the other party, but other times, I find myself doing this so the other
I often get tense and feel over burdened when there is workload and too many tasks to handle. I often avoid the risk related activities; which is not a good trait. As I plan to be manager in future, I should always be ready to deal with risks. Sometimes when things do not work out properly, I get hyperactive and my behavior changes with the people around me. I shout at them and even do not listen to them, which is also not a good characteristic of my personality because a leader should have ability to manage and tackle tough situations calmly.
To begin, I took the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator assessment. This assessment has been a reliable source for documenting personality and focuses on four dimensions of personality: extraversion or introversion, sensing or intuition, thinking or feeling, and judging or perceiving (Ledlow & Coppola, 2014). Based on my results, I would be categorized as ESFJ (extraversion, sensing, feeling, judging) personality type. ESFJs focus on the outside world and assess their experiences subjectively. They largely base their judgments on their belief system and on the effects of actions on people. ESFJs are literal and concrete, trusting the specific, factual information gathered through their physiological senses. They are often skilled at bringing out the best in people, and they want to understand other points of view. They are serious about their responsibilities, seeing what needs to be done and then doing it. Generally proficient at detailed tasks, they enjoy doing little things that make life easier for others. ESFJs seek structured, controlled environments, and tend to be good at creating a sense of order. They value the rule of law and expect
My personality has significantly changed over time from the time I was a teenager till now that I’m an adult. Age has significantly contributed to how I view things, how I react to issues, and how I interact with other people. Some of the factors that have contributed to changes in my personality include entering into committed relationships and advancement in my careers. I have developed increase in positive traits like conscientiousness and a decrease in traits that are considered negative, such as neuroticism. Compared to the time I was a teenager, I have significantly become more responsible, more agreeable, and more emotionally stable. I remember I used to fight a lot when I was a teenager but as I grow into adulthood, I have learnt how to handle issues and control myself as well. In essence, my personality has significantly improved. When I was a teenager, I used to be irresponsible, unsociable, and shy. However, I have since become friendly, responsible, and outgoing. This has made me live a happier life compared to the life I was living before. Living a happy life has improved my personality in the sense that it has made me become more conscientious, more emotionally stable, and more agreeable. My pattern of feeling, thinking, and behaving has since become consistent over time and in different situations.
I am a pretty well rounded individual although not perfect by any means. Throughout my life, I have always tried my best to be friendly to everyone and optimistic in all situations. I don’t think anyone would ever describe me as a critical or aggressive person. I’ve always been willing to give advice and be encouraging to anyone that I felt needed it. I believe that I am a fairly conscientious person in that I have always been careful and diligent when it comes to work and other life choices. I’ve always been organized and usually don’t act on pure impulse alone. I’ve never been described as traditional or conventional. I’ve always been open to new experiences and relish every opportunity that can make me a more well-rounded person. People would also describe me as a fairly intelligent individual with a vivid imagination. My weaknesses, however, would have to include my ability to develop people and team process. I’ve always been encouraging, but I can improve upon my ability to develop people by providing feedback to individuals on their performances and recognizing individual contributions when I am part of a team.
