Now as I’ve been agreeing with all the test’s results and their meanings behind them, there is something that Ms. Kendra Cherry speaks of that I don’t agree with, and that is some of her career choices for ISFJ people. Now she does gives an examples of some that are good choices such as a bookkeeper, banker, and an accountant, she thinks that some of the best career choices for people with the personality type are social worker, counselor, teacher, etc. The reason why I disagree with her choices is that I feel that her choices don’t go well with people who have the ISFJ type of personality. Knowing what it means to be a ISFJ, you would know by now that people who have this type of personality are kinds of people who wouldn’t fit the mold of

I am perusing a degree in Business Management which will support my role in training and leading.
I learned what it took to be successful, that I couldn 't just go through the motions. I learned one of the most important lessons of my college career thus far, and it is this- in order to be successful here (at Texas A&M), you must immerse yourself in every lesson, every lecture, every class. Everything must be 100%, and not a second should go to waste. Each moment is a moment to learn and to better yourself and your knowledge. There will be concepts that you just don 't understand, and when that road block is reached, immediate action must be taken; there 's a commonly spoken line that I never really listened to until recently, and that line is, "don 't be afraid to ask for help!"
I learned a couple things like to ask questions even if they sound dumb to yourself; to not overthink things; start working on assignments earlier rather than later; and have a clear understanding of what the assignments or least an understanding
Upon entering college determining your future career is imperative. It is a struggle trying to understand what career best suits me and my skills. I do not want to have a career where I am unhappy or uninterested in what I do. While reflecting on what career best suits me, I reflected on all of my skills that I could enhance. In high school, I tried to involve myself in different groups, organizations, and classes so I can get a feel for possible fields that I thought about pursuing.
In the past, I have taken so many classes to figuer out what I wanted to major in. My background is helping people with their finances. I have been in the banking industry for about 6 years and customer services for about 9 years. I enjoy what I do, but I do not see this as my career.

I always listen in class to learn everything that I can. Once I read ahead three chapters in my textbook. I always begin on my projects swiftly because I want to explore the topics. I value knowledge as an important skill. I also enjoy questioning things.
I am majoring in Business Administration and Information Technology, two diverse fields that spans over many different types of businesses, in many different industries. I decided to go for two different majors because it opens my flexibility and marketability in the job markets, and for personal knowledge as well. Technology has influenced and changed both of these fields. I would like to start off in a field that I am able to utilize both degrees while making decent money. I would then like to buy property and rent out homes.
Focus 2 Assignment – Reflection Upon completing the Focus 2 career assessment program, I am quite impressed at the quality of information it presents. It allowed me to not only look at careers that would fit my personality, but also those that take into consideration the fields I am already interested in. Also, as with any form of self-assessment, there were strengths and weaknesses that I did not expect based on how I feel I live my life currently. Beginning chronologically, the program had me complete two subjective, current measures of my professional career.
My life and my story isn’t necessarily the perfect life story, picture, or experience. However, after reflecting on my experiences along with the results of three assessments, my life picture is becoming clear and in alignment with my goals and aspirations. Like many individuals, I grew up wanting the careers that would make me tons of money. I wanted a lot of money because I wanted the “good life” or the “good picture” that was portrayed by many successful people that I admired. I grew up in a family full of educators, so teaching and being in the education field was the last place that I wanted to be.
The self-examination assessment asks the learner to take time and think about the 30 areas and determine where we stand. Typically, I don’t like self-assessments such as this because dependent upon its structure and who developed it can skew reality. Throughout my military and civilian career, I have taken tests that ask questions into my status or 360-degree assessment of ability levels. These tests, taken in the specific context of the questionnaire can be helpful in developing a process to grow or improve something the program is supposed to help. This particular assessment reinforced items I where knew I should continue to develop myself.
