    I will try not to shut people out when I’m aggravated, and I will show more empathy towards my family and friends feelings. One day my parents won’t be here and I don’t want to look back as and think of the bad times, but all the good ones. Even though my parents can drive me crazy and I know I do the same to them, I just need to get in the good habit of just getting over it and fixing the mistake. I understand why they do it, when I have…

    Compromise will help me in the workplace because everyone has ideas and everyone deserves a chance to express them. Sometimes you cannot execute everyone’s ideas, but you can compromise to try a part of everyone’s idea or come up with a plan of action together to attack a project. With these skills, I will be able to make a better work environment with less drama and more progress. I also learned from this experience is you may not get what you want and sometimes it is better to leave it alone. The past is in the past and I want to live for the future.…

    Good boundaries would make me feel more in control of my life as well as happier because I would not be getting pushed around. To help with not saying yes all of the time, I’ve been saying “Let me get back to you on that”, so that I have time to think about it. This takes off the pressure of saying no, but I am also not giving in. I also think it will help if I start setting boundaries and limits for…

    Personally, I think that Deliberative is what describes me the best. I enjoy planning my weeks out and knowing exactly what to expect from the upcoming days. I also need to have plans made beforehand, as I do not enjoy spontaneity. Consequently, I do not like when my plans are changed or canceled on short notice because it disrupts the efficiency of my day. However, I think that the Signature Theme I use most frequently would be Consistency, because I hold my morals and values very high in my priorities.…

    As a collaborator, my strengths were that I made sure that everything got done on time and that it was done right. My weaknesses were that I didn’t really talk to my group as much as I should have and I kind of didn’t put responsibility on anyone but myself. Group work requires talking to others, otherwise you’ll just pull all of the weight and the other group members will get a free ride. Honestly, I feel comfortable controlling the whole process of group work and have people just follow what I say so I know that things are getting done right. This is probably not good, but I don’t feel like I can trust groups because a lot of the time people don’t do what they’re supposed to.…
