My Personality Assessments

Superior Essays
Knowing yourself and understanding why you are the way you are will not only help you be a better leader in your professional life but will also help you be a better person in your personal life as well. Everyone has strengths and weaknesses and knowing what those are will only make you a stronger leader. I’m still young and new to leadership, and I am still learning what my leadership style is and redefining it as I understand different styles and how they work. The personality assessments only helped better define some of what I already knew about myself.

First, my emotional stability or my “tough-mindedness” tends to not be so high. I often wear my heart on my sleeve and let smaller things bother me. I understand that this will improve with maturity and experience but right now I need to work on not always letting my emotions control the situation. I need to learn to take a minute and process all information before reacting. Another weakness is the fact that I tend to get bored easily. I often have a short attention span; I think this comes from being Type A personality. This affects all part of my life, not just my professional life. How I handle it in my personal life is that I try to break down larger mundane tasks into smaller more obtainable tasks first. This concept can also be applied to my professional life and leadership to help prevent me from getting bored and not accomplishing something. The next leadership weakness that I have come across is my ability to discipline others. I have a hard time with this but I also believe this will improve with maturity and experience. Right now, I am studying different discipline techniques and trying to find one that will fit with my personality and my leadership style. Being a good leader does not mean you don’t have weaknesses but instead it means knowing what those weaknesses are working on improving them. I hope during this program I will learn ways to improve my emotional stability, my tendency to get bored easily and how to better discipline others. While studying my personality traits and leadership traits I realized my leadership style is transformational more than any of the

    I admire this least because it hinders me from finding new people with the same interests as I do and leaves me alone during most of my hours. I do show that I do well around people to some it even shocks them that I even am introverted, as soon as I am away from the crowds and back alone all that experience hits me like a truck and I start to feel exhausted, stressed, and scared. I also do not go out of my way to put myself in social situations and seek other ways I could complete whichever task required me to be around people alone. I feel more comfortable alone and need time to myself in order to even think about putting myself out in the crowd. This is another reason why I this is my least favorite attribute.…

    I know that I myself am guilty of these as well from time to time so I understand that there will be times that you are not as prepared as you should be or as well prepared as you thought you were; however I have seen blatant lack of preparation that has stemed from the lack of caring or passion. The PT test is something that is easy to fix, you just have to want to work at it. I have seen people in leadership fail time after time yet expect…

    Forging my precision will also help me manage my time better. I would be able to do exactly what I need to do without wasting time on things that I don’t need to do. My technical reasoning causes me to have trouble asking for help. I don’t like asking for help and would prefer to figure things out on my own when I get confused.

    I do not think this synonymous with not being present as I enjoy being there with the team, but I am less comfortable getting in the weeds with these tasks. I gladly take charge and drive the thought process but struggle in the execution. I can be a better leader by taking a more active role in the execution phase and by sharing the challenges I face in that area. By being more present and engaging, people will appreciate the opportunity to showcase their skillset, and I can better thank them and reward their efforts. Additionally, I struggle with realistic appraisals of others.…

    Despite what life puts my way I know that I will succeed because I have strong morals and values. I want to be a person who others respect and trust, but I know I have to work hard to earn that. I know that I will face challenges in the process but I will use what I have learned to become a good leader. I know that being a good leader is also about serving others and letting go of the power. I now understand why so many people are not good leaders, it is because they get so caught up in wanting to have control and power over everyone and everything, that they forget that being a good leader is the opposite of that.…

    To be short, I personally started off by having a fixed mindset but when I was under pressure I changed into a growth mindset because of the pressure but also the result that showed me that effort does lead to your own success. Everyone has the same amount of chances in life but it only comes to you if you reach out for it and put enough effort which means that if you are dedicated and willing to not give up. This lesson is important because if I haven’t learnt from my mistakes or past I might have still be a stubborn person who would not try to do anything new and not believe in hope. This lesson means a lot to my continuing journey since it has been a major experience that made me believe in myself and also remind me that I can be the change that I want to see in the world. In the hope that, as students we have to have a growth mindset but also as whom who has to teach someone to a totally new thing to them, in Professor Dwecks words she says “you have to praise the process within a growth mindset” Of course by now you may think that it is great to have a growth mindset but forcing one another to obtain it doesn’t work since it is like trying to help someone make a puzzle.…
