We are guided by others, but the degree of which is different for everyone and varies for different issues.

According to my IPIP-NEO narrative report I am a very independent, outgoing, calm, and curious person. My comprehensive report shows that I am: high scoring in openness, conscientiousness, and extraversion, average scoring in agreeableness and low scoring in Neuroticism. Raking in the 82nd percentile, extraversion was my second highest scoring trait. This means I am pretty outgoing, extraverted and love people. This is evident my scores of 89 in friendliness, 84 in assertiveness and 75 in activity level. Despite my high score in extraversion, I am on the lower side of average in the excitement-seeking facet with a score or 33.

a. According self tests using the Five Factor Model, my personality has low extraversion and emotional stability, a high degree of openness, and moderate levels of agreeableness and conscientiousness. Low extraversion is demonstrated in both professional and social envionments. While working a corporate job as a financial analyst, taking the time and initiative to interact with coworkers beyond the scope of the job was limited to a brief conversation once a day with the same two people. In large social gatherings, interactions are limited to familiar people with whom I have pre-existing friendships.

This goal is two parts, studying more is not set too high or too low because assignments are consistent and it is my responsibility to keep on top of them. As for graduating, this one is long term but I feel it is an important academic goal to me because it keeps my eye on the prize. I will benefit from this goal because if I study more that leads to good grades, then I can graduate and take my knowledge from school and apply it to my career and my life.
Interpersonal Effectiveness Defined Interpersonal effectiveness is defined as asking for what one wants and being able to say no while maintaining self-respect and relationships with others (Psych Central, 2015, p.1). “Individuals with borderline traits or emotional dysregulation often struggle to maintain healthy relationships because they have only learned how to engage with others in a highly emotional manner” (Hall & Flanagan, 2014, p. 238). Clients must learn both how to manage their own strong emotions and how to relate to others in positive and adaptive way. Through individual and group work, the clients are able to build skills in relational areas such as saying no, being assertive, negotiating, validating other, balancing priorities, and being fair and honest (Hall & Flanagan, 2014, p. 238). Interpersonal effectiveness allows the client to interact with other group members in a positive learn environment.
Each of these components have personality traits that are associated with them. Extraversion refers to the degree in which a person is active, energetic, talkative, and assertive. Openness refers to the degree in which a person is imaginative, independent, and prefers variety. Agreeableness depends on the individual’s level of compassion, trust, and good nature. Conscientiousness is the extent to which a person is organized, careful, and responsible. Lastly, neuroticism relates to a person’s emotional stability and negative emotions. If you experience this, you score higher in neuroticism. I personally took a survey on the Big Five and I would have to say that I agree with the results for the most part. The only component I disagreed with was openness because it put me in the 6th percentile. I think this is a little low, but not too far off. It is said that results in these five factors can vary based on culture.
The results of the four personality tests all agree that I value relationships and ideas that can be seen, touched, and felt. I identify strongly with these core characteristics. However, because of the high emotional scores, the tests tend to lean towards a humanitarian personality. While I care about others
