When taking these multiple personality tests, it is important to understand that each test is not all encompassing. God created each individual differently, and only he knows the exact traits that make up each human. Luke 12:7 says, “Why, even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not; you are of more value than many sparrows” (ESV). Amen Each of us are individual in our own way, yet all united under our faith in the Holy Spirit. This point is crucial to understand when examining personality traits and how they incorporate with other personalities. The interaction of personalities within organizations plays a key role in how successful an organization or team can become. Needs work

While, this is the exact career field I am pursuing, there are many other careers on the list that apply to my past. An athlete, which I was in college, a coach, and a sales representative which all apply to me in some way.

“In modern day society, extroverted leaders are described as those who are able to deliver a grandiose speech to a captivated audience who are drawn to them because of their charisma and charm” (Kuofie, 2015, p. 94).

Romans 12:10 says, “Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor” (ESV). I feel as if this verse correlates regarding the honor shown to another human. Showing this honor, particularly to a subordinate is key as a supervisor and will, in turn, causes others to follow you with respect and honor also. Good personal
