I think the assessments were somewhat accurate. For the values inventory, it helped me understand my values. Off the top of my head it 's not likely that I think about specific things like what I believe in. in truth it actually takes time to stop and pause and think, I strongly value family. The values assessment helped to get a better understanding of myself which is weird. Being the only person with me 24/7 should be an indicator that I must know myself but actually don 't.

I want to help others because when my parents help me I feel incapable and by helping others it shows I am capable. Being the middle China I was always independent and felt suffocated when I was helped by others. By being helpful to others. In conclusion the knowledge gained from these assessments accurate or not have been beneficial to my life. They help me think and live out my life though insight on my new future career and knowledge of my values. These careers have surprisingly been very beneficial to
