DISC Assessment: Review Of The Jung Typology Test
Upon review of the DISC assessment, I read that I had low Decisiveness, which meant that I solved familiar problems quickly, but when placed with an unfamiliar conflict, I struggled and approached it in a “calculated and deliberate manner.” To some extent, I feel that this is true of anyone. Who goes into unmarked territory blindly? In my various jobs, I’ve found that improvisation comes quite naturally for me, so I disagree with this statement. I do find validity in some other points, though. I can be extremely self-critical …show more content…
In the “I” category (Interactive), I scored very highly. It rightly determined that I am expressive of my emotions, whether they are positive or negative, and that I am outgoing. As I’ll point out later, this was also on my Jung Typology end report. This was the category I was most satisfied with.
However, on the other end of the spectrum sat S (Stabilizing) and C (Cautious) and that is where this report began to puzzle me. In the D category, I was described as careful, critical, and almost weary. It also suggested that I do not thrive in a frequently changing work place, however in S, it said that I am very flexible to change, that I am steadfast and dependable, and that I work out problems with “insufficient structure.” The personality the test described here seems vastly more independent than the one in category D. Then to go further, I had low marks in C, which suggests that I am “persistent, even when faced with resistance,” while also, simultaneously,
“non-committal.” I wish I understood how someone could be persistent without committing to an idea or a plan.
Overall, this test was not very satisfying; not because I did not like my results, …show more content…
I was labelled ENFJ (Extravert, Introverted Intuition, Feeling, and Judging).
For the first category (E), it noted that my personal relationships are intense, personable, and warm. I’ve recognized that in myself, as well. I am very quick to become friends with people, and I find it easy to stay on good terms with my coworkers and managers. I have never left a job on bad terms, because I find it so easy to communicate positively with those I am around. In the second category (N), it explained that my personality type sees people through rose-colored glasses most of the time, even if they’re not worthy of it. This made me think of
Richard Nixon, and his issues. He chose friends and colleagues that led him down a crooked path. This is true of me. I constantly see the best in people, even the relationship is parasitic. On the bright side, this attribute also helps make friends and influence the people around me. I am extremely empathetic and “aware of others’ needs.” I view this as my best and worst quality, but
I was amazed that the test identified it so spot-on. It also stated that an N is continuously looking for newer, better solutions to problems around them. I think that this statement fits be well too, especially in the
