consider my “work” self and did not cover much of who I am outside of that.
I scored a high average score on the D spectrum. This seemed accurate, as I am
relatively competitive overall, I like looking at the big-picture, I don’t mind taking risks, I can be
critical of those that don’t measure up to my standards and I am very interested in new and

emotionally cool when work pressure is high, I prefer to work alone when I am buried under
work, I stick to the facts, I am purposely difficult to read and I am very reserved in new groups

When moving on to the ‘S’ spectrum, it showed that I am very patient, I tend to stick to
what is tried and true, I do well at calming people that are upset, I could do with increasing my
sense of urgency and I have often been described by many of my previous employers as cool,
calm and collected.
I scored moderately high on the ‘C’ spectrum, which showed that I focus in on detail, I
like to get things right the first time, I like a structured environment and I set high standards and I
back my work up with good examples.
I am naturally a little bit of a perfectionist and I like to keep things very neat. Because I

Completing the MBTI made me more aware of my preferences. My designation was ISTJ, which meant I was a quiet, practical, goal oriented person that take pleasure in being orderly and organized in every aspect of my life. The majority of the findings were as expected, I had slight to moderate preferences for each dichotomy. Though I fall into a set MBTI type, I tend to switch between types depending on my environment.

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator Essay
The Myers-Briggs theory was developed by mother-daughter team, Katharine Briggs and Isabel Briggs Myers, as an adaptation to Carl Jung’s psychological types. According to Corey and Schneider Corey (2014), Jung’s theory included that “both constructive and destructive forces coexist in the human psyche, and to become integrated we must accept the shadow side of our nature with our primitive impulses such as selfishness and greed” (p. 11).

For my application paper, I will focus on the topics of Rubin’s “Four Tendencies” and Irvine, The Stoics and Control. In the reading of Rubin’s framework, I learned that people usually fall within one of the four tendencies mentioned. Our inner and outer expectations play a huge role on our habits. The way we respond to our expectations classifies which tendency we fall under. “Our Tendency colors the way we see the world and therefore has enormous consequences for our habits” (Rubin, “The Four…
