Reflection On My Signature Themes

Decent Essays
In the process of reading and doing assignments on my Signature Themes, I gained a tremendous amount of knowledge about myself and how I should be handling everyday life. Signature Themes are traits that an individual has that tells a lot about their personalities and morals. After taking a short personality assessment, the results are given to you by judging your values and how you tend to do things such as interact with people or what you enjoy doing for fun. These Signature Themes are to help one understand their strengths and weaknesses, and how to properly maximize themselves. My Signature Themes were Consistency, Deliberative, Discipline, Intellection, and Learner. People who have the Consistency Signature Theme need to have set rules …show more content…
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. I tend to lay out certain guidelines that the people I am close to should follow in order to meet my values. I also tend to ask myself whether the situations I am involved with are up to my ethical standards. Nevertheless, I believe that the Signature Theme that my talents are most refined in is Deliberative. I can easily plan my days and have all my responsibilities laid out in a comprehensive manner. It is also easy for me to keep a space organized and tidy, which helps me focus on the task at hand, rather than what I need to do next. The talents I would like to maximize most during my college education is Discipline, I think this would be the most beneficial to hone in on during school. Focusing on Discipline would allow me to have a structured study plan and force myself to finish the task at hand, rather than touch …show more content…
Some of the things I got to learn was how Discipline and Deliberative talents will help me ultimately reach my goals in life, by allowing me to plan and maximize my time and energy. Also, that my weakest trait is Intellection, because I do not take the time out of my day to allow myself to think everything through and I should. I believe that Intellection will help me gain clarity in my life that I do not currently have. It may be hard to gain this clarity because most people do not tend to give themselves the time to focus on thinking everything through and it may be difficult for me to make time in my schedule to reflect. The most insightful information that I learned while studying my Signature Themes was that I need a lot of structure in my life, although I did have some prior knowledge of this, reading about my traits allowed me to further understand this aspect. Structure is involved in Consistency, Deliberative, and Discipline themes and therefore I should focus on the most effective ways to plan my days. I immensely enjoyed learning these things about myself and am glad I got the opportunity to realize my goals and

    The feedback I received on my projects was very valuable and was happy to implement it into my writing. For example, in my cover letter, it was recommended that I really research the company and try to connect some of their projects to my work. I need to be more specific about some of the skills that were involved in my work to show that I am a serious applicant for the position. In doing so, the company will be able to envision me working in a certain position which will be beneficial. Evaluating what I want to accomplish, setting goals, and creating a path in which to accomplish them were the biggest learning points for me.…

    This is often very effective if paired with the right style of leadership, especially supportive and participative (Lussier & Achua, 2007). This internal locus of control can explain my desire to communicate actively with my leader throughout the project. This is also the only characteristic that has consistently been linked to effective followership, although the research in this field is rather new (Lussier & Achua, 2007). In addition to my knowledge of both the project and the task, I brought several character traits that are useful in all situations, and they are that I am hard working, trustworthy, honest, and I love a challenge. All of these traits help me to be an effective follower, and an effective leader, but as I alluded to when discussing my power with regards to my informal leadership throughout the project, those lines are becoming increasingly blurred, so many characteristics that help in one, can help in…

    After receiving a score of ENTJ, it was very apparent that I like to solve problems with insightful logic and creativity while also generating new ideas. It was not a shocker that I am an extravert, but I also learned extraverts are often considered strong leaders, feel comfortable working groups and like working with people with the same level of dedication. As many personality tests do, I think the desire to work as a leader definitely aligns with my preferences and supports my career goals. The learning style inventory showed I have an accommodating style which looks for concrete evidence through hands on experiences. This is definitely reflected in my ability to complete a training program at work, apply what I have learned on the job, find practices and protocols that provide solid results and then return those findings to the training classroom where I can complete the learning circle and educate new…

    When we first started this course one of the assignment was to set short term goals that leads into completing our long terms goals. This strategy was very helpful for me because I had a visual realistic and tangible guide to follow in order to fulfill those goals. I set realistic goals such as how many classes to take each semester and what grade I wanted to earn in each of those classes. Setting goals also helped me on the personal level by setting weight goals, staying healthy etc. When I have these goals mapped out, it is easy to see where I am going and if there is an obstacle along the way, I can easily take a different route but still arrive at the destination.…

    Throughout the course I learned about my personality and my strengths that I could use to my advantage for career options. The Type Coach Report diagnosed me as INFJ, an introvert-intuitive-feeler-judger, which ultimately meant that I am an idea generator. I have the tendency to find solutions that would create a positive impact on others for a long-term expectancy. The report mentioned that INFJ’s have “exceptional work ethic,” and I could not agree with a statement more. I have the mentality that hard work pays off which correlates with the Type Coach’s diagnosis for my strong work ethic.…

    I feel that I am extroverted, agreeable, conscientious, emotionally stable, and open to experience. I feel that I scored very high in the conscientious category because I consider myself to be responsible, dependable and goal oriented. I set goals for myself and I strive to reach them and try not to add more on myself than I am able to handle. Therefore, I usually like to complete one goal before starting another. It was interesting to see that conscientiousness predicts job performance for all occupational groups.…
