In this section of my leadership development plan, I am asked to examine my personality using the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, which was developed as a job placement tool during the 1930s and 1940s by Katherine Briggs and her daughter, Isabel Briggs-Myers, using the theories of personality presented by Carl Jung a decade earlier (Quenk, 2009). According to the theory, each person tends to fall on one of four sides of opposing scales. The scales are Introversion (I)/Extraversion (E), Sensing (S)/Intuition (N), Thinking (T)/Feeling (F), and Judging (J)/ Perceiving (P). Therefore, it is possible to establish sixteen total permutations of four-letter combinations. After taking the assessment, my personality resulted in the permutation INTP. In this paper, I will write about each of the individual personality components of INTP and discuss the ramifications of each. The first value of the INTP four-letter type is Introversion. This personality component deals with how people energize themselves (Ashraf, Fendler, & Shrikhande, 2013). According to Salvit (2009), introverts differ from extroverts in five distinct ways. First, introverts would prefer quiet spaces to work, while an extrovert would prefer some distraction around while working. Second, introverts prefer small group meetings and would prefer as few as possible. An extrovert, on the other hand, enjoys interacting in meetings and would feel energized after having several meetings; they prefer public meetings
