After writing the assessment test I have got ENTJ which is Extravert (67%) intuitive (12%) Thinking (25%) Judging (56%). The ENTJ mostly focuses on the efficient and organized means of performing a task. This kind of people are goal concerned and regularly make them superior leaders, both in realistic and visionary in applying a extended time plan.

There are four different types of personalities in my group: ESTJ, who is efficient, outgoing, analytical, systematic, and dependable. INFJ, who is Idealistic, organized, insightful, dependable, compassionate, and gentle. Also, an INTJ who is Innovative, independent, strategic, logical, reserved, and insightful. Then finally, ISTJ who is
One particular element I read when reading about the results of this indicator test was the ESFJ personality types works hard, see problems clearly and expects others to do the same. In nursing not everyone has the same personality and it is difficult for me when other nurses don’t have the same enthusiasm or flare to get tasks done. Also my personality demands structure and organization, not all personalities feel the same way. To improve my team performance, I need to remind myself to be respectful to other personalities, by not getting frustrated with others not performing the way I do. They just have different personalities.
My personality type according to the KTS-II assessment is Artisan. As an Artisan, I seek constant change, adventure and enjoy taking risks (Kiersey, 2015). The assessment aligns with an extroverted personality. An extroverted person is outgoing and talkative, often enjoys being the center of attention. An extraverted leadership skill is to focus one’s dominant characteristics on empowering and motivating the team rather them oneself. An extraverted leader is more likely to express charisma, provide intellectual stimulation and individual consideration to their coworkers (Grant, Gino, & Hofmann, 2011). Being free willed and seeking risk can conflict with opposite personality types, such as those who seek safety and certainty. Understanding
For the Team Player Assessment, my personality type is Amiable and I can see as that. I can also see myself as analytic. At my current job I am analytic pretty much all day. If a problem arises I have to find out what caused the problem and if it could have been avoided. I can see effective personal communication to enhance the communication between group members with email, discussion post and text. I think that our team does a great job with communicating and I also try my best to communicate with them as well.
I am classified as an ENFJ personality. This personality type is characterized as a charismatic, strong, authoritative, passionate person that often draws people to them, creating a natural teacher and leader. We find ourselves at ease in groups, and able to articulate our thoughts and emotions eloquently to just about anyone. We are also able to intuit what others are thinking and feeling through their actions in combination with their words, which can give us insight into their motivations. This allows us to naturally pull people together into a group, then find and set the common goal.
After taking on online quiz to determine my Myers-Briggs Type, I analyze how each preference fits into my professional life in a positive or challenging way. I see the world from an external context; my energy comes from external sources therefore my first preference is Extraverted. I am able to conceptualize a broad view of the world, issues and situations as well as work on multiple tasks at one time as an iNtuitive. I use implications, intuition and an internal value system to gather information which is typical of a Feeler. And finally I seek order, and structure as a Judger personality. This makes up my type as ENFJ.
However, other models used to asses personality traits within teams exist such as the Team Diversity Personality (TDP), 'which is a team’s mean level on a particular personality trait or set of personality trait ' (Neumen et al., p.31), this would be useful to company X as it would help them analyse which personalities dominate most in certain teams. This model is an average and so takes into account any extreme personalities in a team, it must also be noted that while personalities are usually reoccurring sometimes personalities that are not usually displayed, may become evident in certain situations for example, a person who is usually not conscientious may become more conscientious in order to complete an important task.
It is challenging to define a high performing team. We believe that a factor which makes a difference in performance is innovation, an ability to think out of the box. Hewlett et al. (2013) defined six behaviours that unlock innovation in a team; ensuring everyone is heard, creating a safe environment for proposing novel ideas, giving team members decision-making authority, sharing credit for success, giving actionable feedback and implementing feedback from the team. Through the previously agreed direct and explicit communication, we are paving our path to successfully completing this first graded assignment and avoiding possible unhealthy conflicts in the future. Another very important factor when it comes to our team is that we come from cultures of different contexts, some are more high-context than the other, for
I did the honor of completing a personality test just to see where I fall on the scale. The results were eye opening. The test revealed that I am an ENFJ. ENFJ stands for extravert, intuitive, feeler, and judger. I am among 2-5 percent of the United States population with the same results. I can be considered articulate, compassionate, and vivacious. ENFJ’s are known to be good communicators, good listeners, and building personal connections with just about anyone. We are usually first to try to find a way to help those in need and take note of global issues. ENFJ’s can work alone but prefer to work with other because that’s what makes them happiest. It is easy to be a team player to work to find a common goal. Order is an ENFJ’s first name. We love to organization not only in our professional life, but in our personal life as well. Order is something that has come easy to me even as I was a kid. I loved to organize hair bows but color, books by alphabet, and clothes by style. It is something that has followed me into my professional career. In my career, it is important to be organized or the job will become that much more difficult and chaotic. I choose to have order in my career because it has helped me be an effective leader. I come in contact with about 800 people during my workday. It is important to have strong and positive personality traits to lead these people if need
The Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) enables an individual to gain a deeper insight into their inherent personality traits. For some people, they have had prior knowledge or underlying assumptions about their personality, but this test provides clearer information about each of their identifiable traits. According to the MBTI in Human-metric personality test, my scores were 22% (E) extroverted thinking more than introverted, 9% (N) intuitive as oppose to sensing, 16% (T) thinking more than feeling, and 12% (J) judging as compared to perceiving. Thus, my personality type is ENFJ. The ENFJ personality group is described as a minority group that consists of natural-born leaders, and people filled with passion, and charisma for example, Barack Obama and Oprah Winfrey; they are notable members of this group, also known as the protagonists (16personalities, 2016). The protagonists apprehend pride in providing guidance for others to improve individually and to improve the community at large (16personalities, 2016). The protagonists find it naturally easy to communicate with others and excel at communicating with other people in person (16personalities, 2016).

For my personality test report, there were 4 different categories looked at to come up with a combined census of what my personality is. You were either, extroverted or introverted, sensor or intuitive, thinker or feeler, and judger or perceiver. My results showed that I was ESTJ. Which means that I am extroverted, sensor, thinker, and a judger. Extroverts basically respond very well to social gatherings and like to be around people. They are usually very talkative and tend to work well in teams. Sensors seek specific answers to specific questions. Usually they do not have a very wide imagination and are more realistic. Thinkers believe that it is important to be right and honest with themselves than it is to be liked. A thinker seeks fairness and tend to be tough-minded.
