Analysis Of My Strengths

Good Essays
My type is ISTJ (introvert, sensor, thinker, and judger). After I completed the verifier at first I felt that the results were accurate, but one or two things were off. As I learned more about my type I realized that they were spot on with the type that they gave me. I am able to relate to the five potential strengths for my type. The first one is being dependable and responsible. I grew up being aware of these two strengths for example, when I lived in Alaska I demonstrated these strengths a lot with my family because my mom had to function like a single parent, and she depended on me to take care of myself, help take care of my sisters, and help around the house. My mom was able to depend on me and by doing what she asked of me I was being …show more content…
The third strength was logistics. As far as logistics go I am the type of person who keys on and is quick to point out things that will prevent an idea from being a success. For example, I am always quick to look for the procrastinators and to stay on them the best I can. The fourth strength is loyalty. I am a very loyal person once I trust a person. For example, in my group for our service learning project I built trust with Ana. Anything she asks from me I won’t have any problem doing. The final strength listed is process innovation. I like taking things that people have tried and changing or altering it so that the end results are better. For example, in high school I had a habit of writing things down in my planner, but as I transitioned into college I found that my planner wasn’t very effective as far as me keeping up with my homework. In order for me to have better results I still kept the idea of writing down and keeping track of my assignments, but instead of using a book that I rarely looked at I bought a board and hung it up on my closet. The board is my new system to keep track of my homework and it’s way more effective than my …show more content…
They gave me five strategies on how to diminish my challenge areas. I need to master the art of investing into relationships, prioritize, delegate, be more approachable, and master the art of innovative thinking. I learned that the challenge areas that I have are big ones, and I also noticed that these are things that I do very often. What I didn’t realize is that my challenge areas are preventing me from reaching success. After I finished learning about how to diminish my challenge areas I then learned about NEs. In order for me to work well with an NE I have to be able to talk it through, be aware of first impressions, be aware of how I say things, give regular positive feedback, clarify the end result, pique their curiosity, give minimal details, don’t be blunt, be positive, and relationships come before task. I learned that NEs are very different compared to me, but by learning to work with one it betters me because they are the type of people who will help me work on my challenge areas.
Having knowledge of my type will affect the way I learn and my teamwork approach. It’ll help me have success in areas that I’ve been longing for. I’ve always wanted to be more social and take time for relationships little did I know the only person keeping me from that goal is myself. As far as teamwork I will become more aware of my actions because

    I am looking forward to growing more in this area, so I can feel more confident in having great sessions with my clients and my supervisor. The next area of improvement would be to lean from my supervisor ways to allow the client to dig deeper with different phrases and techniques.

    On a professional level, I hope that following this plan will build me into a more transformational leader, one that is viewed as someone who truly cares about the development of those around me. This plan will require me to address issues within my unit which often cause distress and lower morale among the team members. Therefore, these actions will hopefully foster an environment which values honest feedback and promotes the development of others. If all goes I planned, I suppose I will celebrate by thanking by all those who supported me along the…

    I’ve had the opportunity of working with her in the past, and I believe we are efficient and focused. I enjoy working with others because I have the ability gain a new perspective and viewpoint from an individual’s thoughts and opinions. The only concern that I have with group projects is that individuals will not put in an adequate amount of effort, but I have faith that Melody and I will work hard and succeed in this project. I believe that critical thinking involves a long and careful process that an individual will use to determine his/her thoughts and ideas on a specific issue. Individuals will use critical thinking to determine solutions for a problem, ideas, and making important decisions.…

    I found that I learn best when I can see the big picture before I add the details. In addition, I realized that I need to be able to make logical connections in order to learn in a way that promotes real understanding and long term memory. Furthermore, I discovered that setting goals and creating a plan that incorporates a checklist is profitable for me. When comparing the computer assessment and the self-assessment, the results were somewhat similar but after much self-examination and reflection, I believe the self-assessment is a more accurate representation of my working and learning styles. I believe that I strongly exhibit several of the traits in the excite dynamic group that I feel would classify me as deliberate rather than stress…

    If you would have asked me what my personality and style of leadership was before taking the DISC and Jung Typology personality assessments I would have said that I am a person who isn’t afraid to take charge when needed and I also like to help people with whatever problems they have. Nothing brings me more joy than knowing that I was able to change someone’s life for the better. Now that I have participated in the assessments I know that my leadership style is one that follows my personality results which were ESFJ (Extraverted Sensing Feeling Judging) with a strong I from the DISC assessment. With this new information I was able to learn more about myself. With a personality of ESFJ most people will probably perceive me as a caregiver.…

    Strengths When I received my personality test results I did notice that most of the strengths it had me under were a correct fit for me as of right now.

Next the test results showed that I am reliable. I know if someone is counting on me to take care of something for them then I make sure it gets taken care of.…
