The results from the Keirsey Temperament Sorter shows that I am an ISTJ. The word ISTJ stands for introverted, sensing, thinking, judging. Those mean that one enjoys quiet time typically alone such as relaxing on the couch reading a book. One also pays attention to facts or details when completing something such as building a project. One typically tends to prioritize facts and uses reasoning, especially when they have past experience instead of exploring new ideas that are not proven.
I performed the assessment on January 26th at 9pm, and the assessment is an abbreviation for "Myers–Briggs Type Indicator.” It describes people by dividing several categories such as “Extraversion or Introversion”, “Sensing or Intuition”, “Thinking or Feeling”, and “Judging or Perceiving.” As for me, the result is “ISTJ” which are introversion, sensing, thinking, and judging. The purposes of this assessment are to understand about myself, to build future plans for finding a job, and to improve my relationship with other people.
This book was definitely a representation of what some teenagers may deal with and it discussed issues present in our society, but I personally found it to be clichéd, not very well rounded, with an underdeveloped plot and frustrating characters. There were multiple grammatical mistakes and sentences that did not make sense or did not run smoothly, whilst this was partly evidence of a lack of an experienced editor, it lowered my enjoyment throughout the entire novel. Even excusing the obvious mistakes, I still found the story line to be old and repetitive. Beginning with a ‘tough’ girl, troubles at home, then meeting a boy who helps her learn and grow as a person before they part ways and go to college, all whilst dealing with her father and getting him help. The final scene in which Hayley and Finn have one more night together is very clichéd, “
Each of the assessment tools is objective and attempts to assess and evaluate behavior. MBTI tool can be used within the general population as well as among individuals with psychiatric symptoms to assess their personality types. Compared to other assessment tools like the MMPI-2 and interviews that do not involve personality type, the MBTI manual according to Jung has little information regarding diverse populations and cultural issues but still regards typology to be consistent among diverse populations (Myers and McCaulley, 1985). Since Jung’s theory is universal in nature, MBTI can be applied using different languages and on different cultures. However, some studies have argued that while psychological type is universal, preferences might differ across diverse cultures.
Not that every book has to have a happy ending, but this book just seems to lack in a plot. She seemed to not learn her lesson or are you just reading about a girl that just went through a lot of bad things? Judging by the examples of banned books, it seems like they just ban books when they offend someone.”
What makes this stand out from the others is that as far as the reader knows, she has not done anything wrong. She also has no clue as to why people are being discriminatory towards her, hence why she has to ask her mom. What she has yet to learn is that
The book, Bad Feminist, written by Roxane Gay, is a collection of essays that argues about many topics of feminism and typical problems in today’s society. “What We Hunger For," is one of her personal essays. Gay reveals to her reader the difficult journey she had to endure as a teen, while also taking her reader through the cultural experiences that many girls endure but never talk about. She later explores The Hunger Games trilogy and its heroine Katniss Everdeen to emphasize the cathartic and sobering stories in young adult literature. Gay claims that through the use of young adult literature and movies that speak of true experiences and accomplishments, the dark past young adult endure can be unlock and resolved.
When I took the Myers-Briggs Personality Test, my result was the description of ISTJs, Introverted Sensing Thinking Judging. From these results, ISTJs are inspectors with an acute awareness of what is right and wrong, especially when it relates to their interests or responsibility. This assessment does resemble my personality without a doubt. The ISTJs process a devotion to duty, and their motto is punctuality. I agree I have a dedication to duty and am a stickler for punctuality with the exception to reasonable cause.
This essay will argue what is meant by the representation of the Other in the novels The Icarus Girl and Shadow Tag. The other is a representation of the questions surrounding identity that arise in these texts. The Icarus Girl focuses on the alternate identities of Jessamy Harrison and her struggle to find a fitting identity because of having a multi-national heritage. Shadow Tag takes a different approach to the question of identity, as Irene America attempts to escape her identity as a domestic abuse victim in the blue diary that she keeps hidden from her husband Gil. There is also the question about the identity of the narrative voice of the novel. Thus, this essay will examine how identity is portrayed in each novel.
In the book are so many young teen girls who suffer from very real issues. There are characters with Anorexia, Substance abuse, Binge eating disorders, and more that could have been explored and healed to make a powerful novel. Instead
This review didn’t showcase any of the negative and weak points in the story. This makes the review seem very biased and unbelievable. Every book has at least one downfall and by not including a counterargument in their review gives off the impression that they may have been paid to put this book in a good light. I wouldn’t buy the book based off of this review
War- Allie Maples had come to hate the word more than anything else in her world, she tried to shut it out of her mind when she heard it spoken, but the word echoed through her ears as she raced toward the lake behind her father‘s plantation. That is all everyone is talking about theses days. Why they cannot find something else to talk about is beyond me, thought Allie as she made her way to the gazebo; apprehensively, she sat down. She could not even enjoy the sanctity of her favorite place on her father’s plantation because of all the war talk.
