Reflection On The Keirsey Temperament Sorter

Good Essays
While completing the Keirsey Temperament Sorter – II (Keirsey, n. d.), I was skeptical. I tend to be less trusting of evaluations completed without personal interaction. I answered the questions honestly, and was surprised by the results. The evaluation was generally accurate, and described my personality well. However, I disagreed with two specific areas.
The statement, “guardians can have a lot of fun with their friends” (Keirsey, para. 2) may be true for other guardians, but I limit the number of friends that I keep, and the time that I spend with them. Being a night shift worker my entire career, my life style is nocturnal. Most people are asleep while I am awake.
The statement, “[t]hey are cautious about change, even though they know

I enjoy interaction with other people, and those people understand that I am committed to my career. So, I do not commit to activities that are not work or school related. Between school and work, my free time is limited. I am thankful the ones close to me understand my thought process, and are willing to provide the space that I need to evolve personally and professionally.
My favorite activity is fishing. When I am not absorbed in reading or planning, I enjoy the calmness that a pole in the water offers. I prefer saltwater fishing over freshwater, but anytime my pole is in the water it is a productive event. Because of my emergency room experience, I share my reasons for the love of fishing frequently. More often than not, I see despair, heartbreak, and tragedy. The bad scenarios outweigh the good scenarios in an emergency nursing setting. I understand the circle of life, and realize that death is part of life. When I am fishing, I see all the beauty that surrounds each and every one of us, the trees, plants, water and calmness that nature provides. I feel that being close with nature balances the devastation that is sometime seen in my work area. Through fishing I create a stable

Professional Presence Promotion The extensive research of both facilities proved enlightening. I have gained much information about how the environment impacts patients, not only the physical environment, but also the atmosphere that is held within the environment. I plan to expand my professional presence more each day, and to continually remain mindful of my how I impact others.
Conclusion
This experience has promoted growth, insight, and knowledge. I am more aware of my professional presence, and how to increase my presence in a manner that benefits myself and
