Part One – My Personality Dimension Colours

My keen attention to detail also allows me to help friends and family with enthusiasm when they come to me with something they’d like me to proofread for them. Not only am I very attentive to details as a strong Gold, but I also really enjoy work that requires me to be detail-oriented.
For my secondary colour, Blue, I feel that the trait I identify with most is the desire for self-actualization and personal growth. For much of my life, I have struggled with self-image and self-esteem, but at the present time I spend a lot more of my energy on the potential that I do have to be a better version of myself, and I really value the idea of personal growth. Specifically, I have adopted a much more positive outlook on things than that of what I used to have. I spend much less time being anxious about what people will think of me, and have shifted my focus more to improving my own self, both mentally and physically. I also feel I am far less judgmental of people now, because I realize that every person is just trying to do their own thing—work towards their own goals—and it is not constructive for anyone to be judgmental about petty things. I greatly value self-actualization and personal growth, which makes me confident that Blue is a colour that

One experience in my life where I was successful and used these specific personality dimensions was when I was a Production Supervisor at a fast paced food manufacturing plant. I learned the process inside and out which enabled me to step in and help out when needed at many levels of the production process.

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator Personality (MBTI) was developed by Briggs Myers and her mother Katharine Cook Briggs in 1943 during the onset of World War II (Ham, 2016). Briggs recognized the need for psychological instruments that would value human differences and utilized the C G Jungs theory in creating the MBTI (The Story of Isabel Briggs Myers, n.d). According to The Myers & Briggs Foundation (2014) Myers and Briggs initially tested a group of 20 relatives and friends. They utilized such sample, because they thought they could predict their personality solemnly on observation which by observation. The initial random sample did not truly represent a whole population, but merely were used due to availability.
As I reviewed my MBTI results, most of my percentages have not drastically changed over time. This gives me continued confidence in the following MBTI results which indicate I am an ?ISTJ?: introvert (16%), sensing (9%), thinking (31%) and judging (53%) (Jung Typology Test, 1998-2017).
Why do NFL teams conduct training camps annually? Fundamentally, they are testing each player’s level of knowledge of the team’s playbook. This assists the coaches in deciding who to keep or cut, but more importantly, it allows the executives to assess each athlete’s character. Likewise, the Myers-Briggs Test has everyone answer a myriad of questions to figure out their specific personality. I received the designation of introverted, sensing, feeling, and judging or “ISFJ.” Simply, I am someone who avoids receiving attention, builds deep, personal friendships, and judges people harshly for their mistakes. Additionally, this test was extremely informative because it helped me identify possible future jobs and explained how I can further excel within social relationships.
John Adams once said, “Thanks be to God that he gave me stubbornness when I know I am right”. John Adams, like myself was introverted, intellectual, thinking, and judging, or an INTJ on the Myers Briggs personality test. Like all INTJs, Adams was stubborn and flouted the ideas of others that he did not agree with. By using my results from the Meyers Briggs personality test, I can examine how I react to certain things and use this to improve my Spirituality, my relationship with God, and ultimately my relationship with others through Christ.

These qualities were even more defined when I took the Myers-Briggs assessment. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is a personality assessment that involves a series of questions to simple everyday situations, the responses then identify an individual’s natural way of doing things known as ‘Psychological Preferences’ (Aranda, R, & TiLton, S, 2013). My MBTI results came back from (Personality Pathways, 2017) as being an ISTJ, which stands for: introversion, sensing, thinking, and judging. I thought that this assessment was somewhat accurate to my personality and my way of thinking. According to the test, I have a strong-felt internal sense of duty and that fuels my motivation to complete tasks. I feel this is certainly true because I want
Personality is defined as consistent behaviour patterns and intrapersonal processes that come from an individual themselves (Burger 2014).In other words, who we are as a person. Personality factors can be attractive to particular parts of the employment industry for example; being neat and tidy or loud and creative could be an attractive factor to the employer. There is an ongoing debate throughout society on whether Personality tests are a good indicator of employment strategies and whether they are a big predictor of hard workers, motivated workers and intelligence within the workplace.
The purpose of this assignment is to explore the Proposition that ‘Different Personalities contribute to Effective Teams’. Learning styles is defined as the process that learners use to sort and process information (Cano, Garton & Raven, 1992). Eysenck (1978) who developed the personality theories of Extraversion (E), Neuroticism (N) and Psychoticism (P), noted that personality and learning are closely related. Furthermore it was also found that there is a large overlap between personality and learning styles (Jackson & Lawty-Jones, 1996) and Duff, Boyle, Dunleavy and Ferguson (2004) state that an individuals learning orientation and approach to learning, is partially determined by their personality. There is a lot of research (Duff & Duffy, 2002; Lhori-Posey, 2003; Coffield et al., 2004; Reynold & Vince, 2007; Welsh et al., 2007; Hornyak et al., 2007; Herbert & Stenfors, 2007; Sievers, 2007; Hyde, 2007; Kayes, 2007; Garcia et al., 2007; Demirbas & Demirkan, 2007; Armstrong & Mahmud, 2008; Li et al., 2008) that shows people have a dominant learning style but can also have a mixture of others. In this assignment I will provide evidence off different theories which support learning styles and investigate different learning models such as Kolbs (1984) and Honey and Mumford (1986). Different personalities can depict suitable team roles but in order to decide if these contribute to effective teams I will examine team theories such as Meredith Belbins Team roles (1981, 1993) and
Do the results in the Tactics category of the 16 Personalities test, Judging versus Prospecting, correspond with the work ethic of sophomores at Randolph Early College High School? If a random selection of sophomores at Randolph Early College High School are given six days to complete an assignment, then the students who are classified as a “J” by the 16 Personalities test will complete the assignment within the first three days and those classified as a “P” will complete their project after the initial three days. One of the most common generalizations used to compare the sixteen variants of personality type acronyms is that those with a “P” are more likely to procrastinate than someone with a “J.” That is based off of the fact that those who receive a high percentage in Judging (J) tendencies are more likely to maintain structure in their lives and value acting according to a plan. Those who have a higher percentage in Prospecting (P) tendencies are more often value flexibility over structure, are prone to be more spontaneous, and prefer to keep their options open rather than operating according to a set plan (Tactics: Judging vs. Prospecting). The purpose of this experiment was to test that notion as it applies to work ethic.
Personality has been inherently defined as possession of a particular set of characteristics possessed by people which influences their behaviour and reactions in different situation along with their motivation level to react to difficulties at the workplace. However, understanding personality traits and their development has been a contentious matter. Nonetheless, various theories have been forwarded to rather contribute to this contentious debate. For example employers set goals and encourage involvement with the company to have a better employee performance, which would result in higher motivation level subsequently leading to increased efficiency. Studies regarding the relationship between personality traits of a particular employee
