This paper is a very brief overview of the author’s personality type as determined by the Jung Typology Test. The test resulted in the rarest personality form, INFJ. Each letter has been broken down into its individual meaning, also known as “preferences.” These letters stand for introverted, intuitive, feeling, and judging. Included with Carl Jung’s findings are definitions given by David Keirsey which group the INFJ personality into his NF category, then further describes them as “Counselors.” The paper additionally explains how these preferences work together to create a unique blend of characteristics that can bring beneficial insights into the lives of others, as well as how these same characteristics can cause a certain amount of stress…show more content…

As a result, I count on both the business and employees to care for me in return, fulfilling Covenant. I have learned that my personality is very unique and comes with a few weaknesses: I become very discouraged or depressed when things fall through; I over-personalize situations, making every problem my responsibility; and I tend to make small things complicated (Kroeger, Rutledge, & Thuesen, 2002). I now realize that I should vocalize my needs, especially when I become overwhelmed or need to get away. Because I can appear detached at times, I should tell the employee that I am just thinking things through and perhaps explain how I came to my decision so they can understand (if possible) my reasoning and thought process. Good analysis of the
