Personal Reflection: Keirsey Temperament Sorter Assessment

Decent Essays
I took the Keirsey Temperament Sorter Assessment and found that I am an ISTJ. I am also one point away from being an ISFJ, I chose thinking because it was one point higher.

People in this type are practical, orderly, matter of fact logical, realistic, and dependable. See that everything is well organized, takes responsibility, makes up their own minds as to what should be accomplished, and works toward it steadily regardless of protest or distractions.

I always put things in order. I am firm for the most part in conversation. I am not rude, when people ask me my opinion or a question I give them a real answer, and people tend to appreciate that.

I’m also analytically oriented and can figure things outs strategically and logically.

I am not the kind of person that thrives on confrontation and therefore seeks it out.…

Its hard when I don’t want anyone to run over me at the same time. I just want everyone to be happy then I can give myself time to be happy. At the same time if I don’t care about something or I just feel like there is no need in me to interfere, I get really indecisive if I should step…

    I am also able to smooth over the most frustrated of customers with little effort, my goal on the phone is to hear a smile in their voice or at the very least an understanding with the removal of anger in the customer’s voice.

I also do not react as high strung in different scenarios so I often do not see the problem until people are already reacting to it…

    But, now I’m just brutally honest and it tends to hurt people’s feelings, or the way I say things may get misinterpreted. Because in all honesty I don’t ever want to hurt anyone’s feeling, but I do want to still be able to help them, especially if it’s something I have experience with. I just feel as though I am becoming a bitter old person and I don’t like it at all. It’s like I feel everything at once, people’s energy, people’s emotions, and I want to heal and help everyone. Yet, I have neglected my own self for so long that I think I have begun to resent myself for it and it is beginning to bleed out into everything.…
