As I attempt to uncover my personal stances on the issues of motivation, ethics, long-term and short-term perspectives, and unique preferences, through the results of my self-assessments, I will make specific conclusions about my leadership capabilities and general behavioral tendencies. With these conclusions at hand, I will then contemplate about how I should change myself for the future, along with what aspects of myself that I should continue to maintain. Therefore, I will know myself better on an intimate level. Who I am, in terms of strengths and weaknesses, may not be accurately mirrored in the results of my self-assessments, but this is the start to having a deeper relationship with myself.

After taking the self-assessment, I realize that I am a situationist—a mixture of both side.
