Karl Lagerfeld once said, “Personality begins where comparison ends”. When trying to figure out who you are as a person and what your personality is like it is often tempting to compare your personality traits and states to those of the people around you. However, this is tends to do more to confuse than help when trying to figure out your own personality. Only by looking at yourself and the bigger picture your personality traits and states create that you can truly understand yourself and your personality. The two assessments taken before this assignment are designed to help with this process.

When I took this Big Five Inventory (BFI) I learned some things about myself that I did not know. I scored a 20 in extraversion, 24 in agreeableness, 19 in conscientiousness, 25 in neuroticism, and 27 in openness. I took the test before I read the book so I had no idea what these numbers meant. As I read the book, I then started to understand and agreed with the scores that I received.
A paper written by Angela Duckworth which builds on previous research done by psychologists over the past 100 years titled “Grit: Perseverance and Passion for Long Term Goals” demonstrates through many different studies how grit can affect our success.

At the Coast Guard Academy, many discussions revolve around leadership. We learn about great leaders of the past, what made them excel, and how to prepare for our own future leadership challenges. Besides learning about great leaders, cadets learn about how to make themselves world changing leaders through the study of leadership theories and lengthy self-reflection. One way for a cadet to determine who they are as a leader, is to create their own leadership philosophy. Through the creation of a leadership philosophy, it is possible for an individual to determine what leadership qualities they find important. By combining leadership theories as well as my own leadership philosophy, it is possible to determine who I am as a leader.
Trait theories focus on traits, that which is stable and relatively constant over different situations and times, as being the main indicators of personality (Prager, n.d.). The continuous aspect of traits offers a predictability of future behaviours across various conditions; thus allowing for personality archetypes to be created and assumptions to be made within the constructed archetypes. Multiple theories have been developed that establish various archetypes or models which allow people to be classified into personality types. Some theories propose a number of personality types where as others propose a continuum of personality. For the purpose of this essay, only the most prominent trait theories of personality will be explained and each theory’s viability in offering a comprehensive account of Lance Armstrong’s personality will be argued. Furthermore, the most applicable theory will be used to classify Lance Armstrong with a justification.
According to my big 5 results, I scored 13 points in Extraversion, 30 points in Agreeableness, 36 points in Conscientiousness, 34 points in Neuroticism, and 33 points in Openness. The reason why I scored really low in Extraversion than the four others is because I don’t have much of a will power for socializing with other. I meanly keep to myself in school and I reality leave the house since I don’t like being around a lot of people. I am a huge introvert when it comes to staying quiet which isn’t a good thing since we live in a social environment but I am more comfortable being alone then being among a lot of people. According to my Hexaco results, I scored 4.75 points in Honesty-Humility, 2.50 points in Emotionality, 1.38 points in Extraversion, 3.13 points in Agreeableness, 4.13 points in Conscientiousness, and 3.50 points in Openness.
1. Based on the information provided in this case, Tom Parker and his team member should be placed differently on the “CANOE” personality model. The Big Five factors are conscientiousness, agreeableness, neuroticism, openness to experience and extraversion. Each of them indicates different domain of personality that used to describe human personality. In this case, I would place Mr. Parker as neuroticism since he has low emotional stability. As a team leader, he should be self-disciplined, organized, reliable and careful, but he shows anxiety, hostility, depression and self-consciousness in this case. Another person, Brian Millar, should be placed as low conscientiousness and low agreeableness in this case. Conscientiousness and emotional stability
