Personal Narrative: The Logistician

Decent Essays
My website results gave me that I was “The Logistician.” I am the ISTJ personality which stands for Introvert, Sensing, Thinking, and Judging. My results said that I was 51 percent introvert, 51 percent sensing, 72 percent thinking, and 51 percent judging. I am on the line of being other personalities, seeing that three of my results were 51 percent. I think that it is true, though, I am introverted around other people that I don’t know but if I am around people I know, but I can keep up a conversation easily. For example, during my speech class I got nervous before every speech I gave because I was presenting my thoughts in front of people I don’t know, but during school presenting in front of my class I am not nervous at all because I know …show more content…
I agree with most of these, but some of them I just don’t see in myself. I can be very responsible, but in certain situations I can be very reckless. Not like a bad, reckless but I make rash decisions that I may regret in the future. I don’t think that I enforce others because, like I said I can be very shy and just follow what others tell me to do. I am usually calm, but if you get on my bad side I can get very angry and be the exact opposite of calm. The definition of jack-of-all-trades is a person who can do many different types of work but who is not necessarily very competent at any of them. I definitely agree with this because I can do many things, but I may not be the most outstanding at them. I am very direct and honest. I tell people the truth, even though it may hurt them. I would rather tell people the truth and them be upset than lie and them think something that isn’t true. I am strong-willed in so many situations. Sports is just one example, during volleyball I want to be the best I can be so I try my hardest and never give up. I want to be able to show everyone my best and to make sure that I am a reliable …show more content…
I agree with all of these being weaknesses. I can be very stubborn when I am sure about something, if I want something or I think something is true I don’t back down. I can be very stubborn about new ideas that I don’t agree with. I can be insensitive in some situations but I am usually sensitive towards people. I care more about other than myself. That can be a very bad trait because you should care about yourself too. I don’t necessarily agree with the always by the book, I like to follow the rules, but there are times rules need to be bent and I will bend them if I need to. I often am judgmental and then feel bad about it afterwards. I think about I would be like if someone was judging me, which happens often. It doesn’t feel good when you hear what people are saying. When I think about how it would feel if someone was talking about and judging me, I would get upset and feel terrible about myself. I don’t want anyone to feel the way I feel when I hear people talking about

    I try to be easy going in most situations, especially if others have strong opinions on a subject and I do not. I generally do not get along well with people who are overly aggressive. I only resort to acting aggressively when it is entirely necessary. I think that generally the person someone is disputing with is not their enemy so an extremely aggressive reaction is over the top and unnecessary. Being aggressive in many cases destroys the chance of coming to a civil agreement.…

    When I read this article I identified completely with it; not so much in the present tense, but I know that I am still working really hard to be less afraid to confront certain things head on. I’m pretty easy going but there are certain areas i.e. blatant disrespect towards others and disregard for the well-being for those around you, which irritates me enough to speak up. Interestingly enough, I am more apt to speak up for someone else (sooner) than for myself; strange I know. “But even more than fear, anger is hard on our reputation and our relationships, because anger usually looks and feels like unwarranted aggression to our counterparts…The needs to maintain self-respect may be more central to the personality than it is widely believed: We are built to be status protecting organism” (Weeks, 2008).…

    Seeing people, animals, or just valuable things get mistreated it upsets me. I try to be as tough as I can in some situations but I let my heart get to me a lot. I have the mind set of changing the world, it may not be in a big way but small things can take a great tole on someone. A lot of people think I’m a nice person but I have a very short temper or that I’m very indecisive. I agree with all of these things, but sometimes my temper can get the best of me just like me being to nice can.…

    I have a fear that no one will like the idea and it will be rejected and I will become embarrassed. Due to this fear, I can tend to hold back some of the time when it comes to presenting a new concept to the group.

    For example, I have trouble accepting myself but don’t acknowledge it; I might be prone to being influenced by others who question my choices. Being influenced by others unsuitably has a consequence. I can’t be trustworthy in my decisions because it seems that my decisions change simply and are grounded on whom I spoke to. On the other hand, if I have trouble keeping an open mind since I don’t demand myself and don’t recognize that, I might fail trust, motivating…

    I don’t like people knowing what I might be going through. Even though that doesn’t seem like a problem at times. I tend to bottle up all my feelings and opinions and end up blowing up causing me stress and sometimes small depressions. I’ve been trying very hard to be more open and let people in so they can help me and guide me through any…

    However, this pessimism needs to be well managed, lest it turns into paranoia. It is also a problem when it comes to group work as some people may feel offended when I overly point out imperfections in their opinions and ideas. Another weakness is communication. I am able to absorb and understand information quite readily but I face difficulty when it comes to communicating such information to my peers. Many times it seems as though we are on a different wavelength and it is vexing for both parties as I cannot express what I want to say and the other party cannot understand what I am trying to say.…

    If a compromise is not reached between myself and the other person, I will engage in an avoidant system, because I feel guilty, and all of the hurt experienced in that moment comes rushing back into my mind. I take criticism very poorly – whether it is constructive or just nagging. It becomes a part of who I am, and puts me into a deep state of depression. These practices are not healthy in the…

    On the contrary, people frequently believe that being honest all the time can begin to hurt those around them based on how harsh the truth is, however, I disagree.
