In Dr. Fischer’s article, “The Gospel and Personal Reflection,” he addresses that not looking into people’s different personality’s strengths and weaknesses, we are doing organizations a disservice.

The Holy Spirit has worked in my life many times to transform my weaknesses into strengths. As an INTJ personality type, I tend to live in my own world. I am most comfortable thinking over every single detail of a thought before I share it with people. I also prefer smaller groups over larger crowds. Sometimes my ability to communicate my thoughts is a weakness. I believe the Holy Spirit has worked in my life to transform my weakness of communication into a strength by placing challenges in my life. When I got to my first duty station as an Officer, I had a four month wait until the position which I came to the duty station for opened up. I was a brand new junior officer just out of the basic officer course. I had only graduated from college six months earlier. I was still very shy and had a difficult time collecting my thoughts and speaking in front of people I did not yet know. While I was waiting for the position to open up, I was placed in a temporary job which I was responsible for getting information from several companies. I was required to speak to people I did not know at first and I was also required to get up in front of large audiences and speak about things that were still very new to me. After a few weeks, I was effectively speaking in front of groups. I was also able to effectively build rapport with the people in the companies who I was working with. In the end, I felt like the Holy Spirit was working to help me turn my weakness of communication into a strength. INTJ
