The two self-assessments were not so much informative as they were a continued validation of a few things that I already knew about myself. Truthfully, I am not one to give credit to the of use self-assessments as a guideline to how I should act or what I should do in life. I am definitely an Extrovert as the Jungian Typology assessment proved, but there are days that I lean towards being an introvert just to survive and decompress. I work as a librarian in a middle school and sometimes, I need to shut myself off and find quiet, self-centralized moments to think and assess my days. With that said, I am surprised that the assessment categorized me as judging instead of perceptive. Sensing and feeling have always been a strong point for
Zig Ziglar once said, “Positive thinking will let you do everything better than negative thinking will.” In more than one way Ziglar was correct in saying this, a positive attitude is better than a negative one, especially when it comes to conflict. Anne Frank and Mrs.Breed both show how a positive attitude towards a problem would help more than a negative one. In my experience, negative thinking results in more conflict, which means, positive thinking results with a solution, most of the time. This leads me to believe, a positive attitude is the best response to conflict.
the only area which I felt were not accuract to my personality were the career list it gave me. It gave me a lot of jobs that insist on mathematically reasoning, which is not a strong point of mines. Other than this I was surprised at the test’s accuracy.
The test was based on Carl Jung’s and Isabel Briggs- Myers’ typological approach to personality. The test characterizes ones personality into one of the sixteen types, depending on “preference or general attitude” of the test taker towards “extraverted vs. introverted,” “sensing vs. intuition,” “thinking vs. feeling,” and “judging vs. perceiving.” I decided to take this test because of the close tie it had to our text, considering its based on Jung and Isabel Briggs Myers, and also because I had taken a similar test a while back and wanted to see if I would “score” the same personality, which I
Charles Popplestown wrote that “You cannot always control circumstances, but you can control your own thoughts.” Your attitudes determine how far you can go in life. When you have a winning attitude, when others sees difficulties in every opportunities, you will see opportunities in every difficulty and you will see challenges as a training ground for what lies ahead. You only get better results when you are thinking clearly; you might be strong in muscles and very much intelligent in your mind. But a slip and a sleep in thought would jeopardize everything you strongly believed and condemned everything you ever hope to achieve and terminate everything you have ever worked for.
I have found the test really interesting. All the questions were answered honestly and with great curiosity for the output. Although I had an idea of how my behavior and my attitude is, in some parts the results really surprised me. I know for example, that I am not really the best person to hang out; therefore the grade for Gregariousness was really high. I had also found out that I can be described as a little lazy, which I cannot say it is true, or although I feel a terrible sympathy for blind people (I really don’t know why) instead of another group of disabled people, nevertheless the test indicated that my level of sympathy is low, which was quite a big shock.
While it is very surprising that answering a few multiple choice questions can reveal things unknown to the taker, the 16 Personalities quiz has my number for sure, especially when describing my faults. The test revealed, for instance, people with my type (the Logician) can be insensitive and condescending. I am sure that this is a “complete shock” to everyone who has ever met me. This test said that Logicians have immense difficulty with emotions, to the point where “Emotional situations can be utterly bewildering to Logicians, and their lack of timely sympathy can easily offend others.” There are several times where I can have problems dealing with other people’s emotions, and I wind up thoroughly confused. Insensitivity makes it very hard
My personality type was ISFJ. I definitely was not surprised to see that my feeling was 34%. To me this makes sense because I follow my gut feeling a lot. I was surprised that my judgement was only 12% because I use my judgement a lot. I was very surprised to see that I was an Introvert at 6%. I am a very shy person and it takes a lot for me to break out of my shell. I would expect that number to be
I like to think things through by looking at both side of the issue the good and bad. When I go shopping most often time I have several things in by basket that I have decided to buy. As I walk through the store my thought pattern is if I really need the things in my basket, by the time I make it to the register half of the things have been put back. I think about if I need this or can it wait, most often it can wait. When encounter new information my thought pattern is in what way is this information going to benefit me, and in what part of my life will I use
Being presented with a problem or dilemma is an everyday occurrence. The meaningful and lasting issue is not the problem itself, but how it was handled. With every confrontation, disagreement, or important decision comes an opportunity to present oneself as an open-minded and reasonable individual. The key to being that individual is critical thinking.
This test surprised me with its accuracy. It was incredibly accurate in all of its assertions, at least from my perspective. I have many Ideals that I will argue tirelessly for given the opportunity. I am also everything it says negatively affects me. I slightly disagree on the sensitivity description due to me not being as quick to judge based on others Ideals as it thinks. I will argue,
The vast majority of my results from this section of the Prentice Hall Self-Assessment Library (SAL) generally fall in line with how I view my personality. The fact
I have always enjoyed taking personality tests. From reading my horoscope to looking up facts about my learning style, I have a great deal of fun learning more about myself. After taking the Myers-Briggs test, and examining the Social Penetration Theory and Pillow Method, I have begun to see a more accurate, as well as academic, concept of my personality.
Thinking skills always appear in problem solving process because it requires you to think for solutions out of the box. It develops your creativity and you learn how to look at a problem from different angles. (Kumar, Lecture on Applied Thinking, 2015).
A problem in life is acting without thinking. A hunter does not shoot a gun without aiming, yet most of the time, the same person acts without thinking. Complications with not thinking can be getting into trouble without meaning to, changing how others think of you or causing others to suffer, mentally or physically. Yet, society still does not think about their actions and how people affect others. In the future, people will start to be considerate about what they do.
