Having never taken the DISC assessment before, I was unsure about what to expect. I
thought it was fairly accurate in many ways, but I felt that it very much tapped into what I

emotionally cool when work pressure is high, I prefer to work alone when I am buried under

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

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…
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). The Myers-Briggs Type…

It is crazy to think about the many different people there are in this world. Some people react to certain situations one way, and others could react in a complete opposite way.
