I will then list areas I have identified as my own personal weak points for further development.

The need for another personality test seems small. Personality tests have been in use in American since 1943 when the Meyers Briggs was first published (OPP, 2015). The field is now very diverse. With the Meyers Briggs and Smalley’s Animal Types on one end to What Star Wars Character Are You? On the other, these tests run the gambit from serious to funny, and then on down to time wasters. To really prove your usefulness, a new test must fill a niche in the market. Something only your test can provide. However the 34 vaguely worded themes give no great bit of detail to really
What are your weaknesses? Do they affect the way you do things? In the novel, Monster by Walter Dean Myers, there are numerous times where characters’ weaknesses have made complications much worse. This story is written in a form of a movie, with Steve Harmon being the writer. In his movie, Harmon is on trial for murder and robbery at the age of 16. Throughout the story we are given countless testimonies and pieces of evidence. In the end, Harmon is found not guilty. However, the other suspect James King, 23 years old, was found guilty and sent to prison. Harmon and many other characters showed signs of weakness throughout the story and it made things so much worse for them. Through actions, dialogue, and thoughts, one’s weakness could be the major drawback in serious times.
Reflections on your personal strengths and weaknesses in terms of leadership and communication. Knowing how to advocate for clients by being assertive is a personal strength. By standing your ground, making needs known, and willing to present a subject that may be uncomfortable makes it a personal strength. Determining when to and when not to advocate for clients is a weakness. As an advocate you should be prepared to advocate for the clients wellbeing. Being able to negotiate is a weakness. Negotiation allows the employer to see how much of an asset you are to their organization.
My written strength was that my questions were of a wide variety and that most were connected to the question before them somehow. My verbal strength I think was speaking clearly and calmly. I did not rush through the questions and I would often ask him questions about things he said that I didn’t have written down. My visual strength was sitting calmly. I didn’t fidget or do any nervous gestures. I also had weakness in each category that hindered my interview a little as well. My written weakness was not using vivid words to ask questions. I asked the questions without any metaphors and sometimes examples. My verbal weakness was that a couple times I thought Mr. Hartung was done so I would begin to ask the next question but he would interrupt me and finish answering the question. So, next I time I interview someone I will make sure I give them plenty of time to answer and elaborate on their answers. My visual weakness was not making eye contact enough because I had to write down the answers. I think I would have done better if I taped the interview and wrote down the answers after it was
Strength/Weakness: The student was prepared for the interview through research of the agency prior to the interview and by completing a mock version of the interview creating a mental order or flow of the questions prior to the interview.
My strengths are my self-confidence, determination, organization, and ability to prioritize. Balancing an overloaded school schedule, upwards of 24 credits in a semester, maintaining excellent grades, raising a toddler, and volunteering are demonstrative of my greater fortes. In terms of weaknesses, public speaking has always been difficult for me, as well as networking. I have branched outside of my comfort zone, engaged in volunteer opportunities, student organizations, and clubs as an effort to improve upon this.
My weak area was the self-regulation portion; most of my responses to how often I handled each situation were “usually.” I need to improve on controlling my feelings in certain situations, trying to be more aware of tasks and their proposed deadlines, managing my time wisely, and executing new ideas that I myself have formulated. Other weaknesses were found in most of the areas where my strengths were. Most of them involved taking risks, which my personality often deters me from engaging in.
There are strengths and limitations to any psychological tests. The WJ IV ACH is no exception. One of the strengths that have been noted is being co-normed with the rest of the WJ IV, which is useful to professionals who are evaluating multiple different areas of functioning (Villarreal, 2015). Another is that the test materials and organizational procedures are easy to follow and understand which helps the administration to go smoothly (Villarreal, 2015). Lastly, it helps assist in aligning individuals with the categories of learning disabilities that is accepted by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) (Villarreal, 2015). In conjunction, the data is normed on a very large population providing
While I definitely have more strengths than weaknesses, I do consider myself to have three weaknesses in my attributes. My weaknesses would include: Impatient, Shy and Reluctant. When working on a project, I can become a little impatient if the other group members are not pulling their weight properly or waiting till the last minute to do things. According to Melody Fletcher’s How To Overcome Impatience article, “Impatience is a response to fear”. I have a strong desire to control not only the outcome, but also how that outcome will come about and being impatient causes stress for myself because of the fear of failure. It can be somewhat irritating to work so hard on a project to have other group members conduct themselves in a manner that is unprofessional or not up to our higher education degree standards. I have managed to work on this weakness by knowing that every individual works at a different pace and levels of proficiency. I can be pretty shy when working in a group setting. While I try not to be reserved or nervous, I tend to sit back in listen during the first few group project meetings. I have worked on this weaknesses over my time at Full Sail University, by being more proactive in the group setting and taking control of either being the
The lessons about perception that are derived from this case would be located in stage three, “storage and retention” in event memory. The storage and retention phase is where long term memory takes place. “Long-term memory is made up of three compartments (or wings) containing compartments of information about events, semantic materials, and people” Kreitner & Kinicki (2013). Event memory is a compartment of storage and retention. These are memories that recall appropriate actions in well-known and familiar settings including job interviews. .in the case study the entire setting was over job interviewing. As stated in the text “the weakness question represents the most stressful one posed during interviews” Kreitner & Kinicki (2013). As potential
Like every human being, the same way I have strengths; Also, I have weaknesses. The weakness I need improvement is my interviewing skills. My interviewing skill is one of the reasons I
With the long-term goal of becoming a transformational leader, it is often useful to consider one's strengths and weak nesses across four dimensions. These include personal and professional accountability, career planning, personal journey disciplines and reflect practice reference behaviors and tenets. The intent of this analysis is to evaluate my strengths and weaknesses in each of these four areas. In addition, a discussion will be completed on how current leadership skill sets will be used for advocating change in my workplace. The conclusion of the paper will concentrate on one personal goal for leadership growth, including an implementation plan leading to its fulfillment.
The strengths I have: being efficient and organize. I have to have everything a particular manner before I write, perform, or do almost any jobs. Occasionally this can cost me lots of time. The weaknesses that I have are a perfectionist and impatient at times. I was used to working at a substantially faster rate than those around me. Sharing information and interacting with others is when I learn best. Understanding my weaknesses assists me to plan methods to conquer them when I am doing tasks and socializing with others. I must be kinder to myself and less strict about matters being merely so. I also need to be more delicate and comprehensible of others who tend not to take up my perfectionist styles. I also should be patient with people who take longer time to work. Since I have got a tendency to delay works when I do not feel like doing anything, I, therefore, need to create a regular schedule with integrated rewards and times for learning and acquiring assignments done.
