This paper will look at personality types from multiple sources including, Jung Typology, Myers Briggs Type Indicator, and Type Talk at Work. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to define my personality type explained by these various sources. Carl Jung introduced three areas of preference that include Extroversion/Introversion, Sensing/Intuition, and Thinking/Feeling, and Briggs introduced the last preference, Judging/Perceiving. These preferences make up sixteen unique personality types that contribute to personality style that then creates a framework for our worldview and that also determines how one navigates in society. Personality traits give insight into how we function in the world, how we process information, why we make certain decisions, why we pick certain careers, and they contribute to communication and learning styles. The paper will identify each of my preferences and give examples of how these traits are manifested in my life as they relate to my role in the workplace.
