Mbti Reflection Report

Improved Essays
I will admit, I have done the MBTI test a couple of times before, so am already somewhat familiar with it. This makes it a little more challenging to work through Professor Sarkee’s process; trying to work out what I believe my MBTI preferences are as I see them. So, I decided to work through the process with an unbiased view, especially because I was interested to see if my personality has slightly evolved after recent life changes and experiences.
My result is ENFJ, although I was rather torn between the first letter being an E or I. People would probably presume that I am very confident and have a somewhat extrovert personality, just because of my long career on stage, and because I tend to easily make friends with anyone. Although I have confidently sung in front of crowds of up to 45,000 people, I am actually not at all confident in talking in front of people – not even a very small group! There are some traits of introversion that I agree with, such as seeking quiet for

This is probably the one letter that I feel very confident when working it out. I always put the feelings and happiness of others first, and this actually is what brings me great happiness. I can be seen as a bit too patient, a bit too forgiving, and give too much of my time to people who perhaps do not fully appreciate it, but the one thing that makes me very happy in life is helping others. I also seek positivity and try to surround myself with likeminded people – if someone is not happy, I try and pick up their spirits and make them feel better. I also never argue in personal or work relationships – I love harmony – however, the older I get, the more I realize this is not necessarily the best thing for my own situation – not saying what you think (especially if that differs in opinion from someone else) can build up frustration. I also like to think that one of my best traits is showing empathy, so F is the perfect choice for

    You 're still a good person, and I hope you 're not thinking poorly of yourself. Don 't let the little things define you, and keep your head up. Never be ashamed of anything because life goes on and you can only build on the person you are.

    He’s actually I really nice kid and I only wish the best for him. I never seem to go over board with it though, and I have received very positive feedback from many people.

I like to keep things light and not try to get too serious because the more serious I take things, the less fun I have.…

    An amazing thing about friends is that we should always be able to trust that they will be there for us no matter what, even when life gets ugly for us we should be able to know that they are going to be right there by you. Another stupendous thing is that we can share anything with them and not fear that it will be spread around, because we can trust our best friend. It is also very less stressful to talk about our problems with someone such as our best friend rather than bottle them up until we are depressed. Some more benefits of having a best friend is them helping us to realized what mistakes we’ve made in our lives.

    My social life is really big to me. Family sociability comes first always because you will have them throughout your life, but your friends may leave over time. I think face-to-face friendships are the best, because you can communicate with them better and show how you’re actually feeling instead of talking through a monotone text. Ethnicity does not have an impact on how i see people. If you are a lighter skin or darker skin, if you speak a different language, or look different, they are all the same to me.…

    I think not letting good comments affect me will be hard though, because I really like being praised. I tend to doubt myself over my work/abilities and so it’s nice when I am reassured. However, Don Miguel says that you should already know that you are wonderful. You don’t need other people telling you that to believe it’s true. I think it would be hard to do, but I’m sure with practice anyone would be able to do it.…

    It’s always good to stay humble. In the Mill article, he states the following “the enjoyments of life (such was now my theory) are sufficient to make it a pleasant thing, when they are taken en passant, without being made a principle object.Once make them so, they are immediately felt to be insufficient” (Mill 1). What this basically means is that you enjoy more things in life when you don’t make them an important thing because once you do so, they will be inadequate. I disagree with this because I believe you should enjoy everything no matter what. Be happy, because in moments of sorrow you will miss being happy.…

    I feel that I am an effective listener whenever my friends need to talk about their problems. I believe I possess effective listening during these situations due to my relationship with the person. We are close enough to discuss personal information; however, I feel that there is a healthy distance that restrains me from saying something that may sound rude or sarcastic. I think I am not an effective listener with family or my significant other since it is easier to interrupt or say hurtful comments due to how comfortable we are in the relationship. Additionally, I try to listen to the best of my ability, especially since I care about the person and their mental and emotional health.…

    Having self-discipline affords me the opportunity to be honest with others and more importantly myself. I can admit when I’m not doing my best or if I was wrong about something. In general, my conscientiousness reflects me well although I was merely disappointed with self-efficacy ranging in the average percentile. Self-efficacy for myself I would say should be higher. I have all of the tools that can bring success towards me.…
