“The man who makes an appearance in the business world, the man who creates personal interest, is the man who gets ahead” (33). In Death of a Salesman, Arthur Miller uses foil characters to elucidate Willy’s flaws that ultimately prevent him and his family from succeeding. The contrast between Charley and Willy and Bernard and Biff serves to highlight how Willy’s obsession with achieving his version of the American Dream impacts both his life and his children’s. His poor values are passed on to his children producing even more failures.

In this paper, I will assess my identity and my personal history and how it relates to social work professions. I first address my personal history and cultural background, where I came from, as well as my experience in working in the community. I then talk about my overall strengths, both in personal and professional lives. My strengths are listening skills, open-mindedness, respect for diversity and eagerness to learn and improve my weaknesses. Afterward, I discuss my weaknesses, such as nonassertive communication skill and low self-esteem problems, and how I plan to address these issues. Next, I explain why I seek a BSW degree, how my personal values align with the professional values, and how it is related to my interest in working in the
I have accomplished many things in the past three years. Some accomplishments felt better than others due to the differing amount of effort I put into various endeavours over the years. However, no accomplishment felt better than passing my grade eight clarinet exam, which
Overall, this class has been an extremely help for me. I have been able to identify my strengths throughout this semester. When I started to question myself about what were my strengths or weaknesses, I have discovered that I have more strengths than weaknesses. But, I know if I let my weaknesses take control I would not be a good student. Conquering my weaknesses would definitely make me a good student. I am very intelligent and I know what I want in life. One of my strengths as a student is that I know to acknowledge my faults and am willing to look for help if I ever have to do it. My biggest weakness is the way that I manage my time. I tend to spend a lot of time on my phone.
In today’s environment, the ownership is on us, as an individual to take responsibility for our own development, rather than expecting our organization to do it for us. The question, which always ponders over mind is does my personal skills suits to today’s dynamic world? If not, how do I move forward? Hence, the starting point is to introspect, retrospect and do an evaluation through self-assessment tools in order to know myself, strengths and limitations and my ability to perform in dynamic roles in the business environment.
As a college freshmen, there is no doubt that I still have a long ways to go in order to achieve my academic goals. And through this journey, I know that I will encounter highs and lows just as I experienced in the past, most notability in high school. I keenly remember instances around this time where I doubted my abilities when subjects like math was proving to be difficult, even when I was trying to put in effort to stay on track. I was struggling in math because I did not try to identify my weaknesses, and never tried to come up with solutions to fix my problems. Rather, I chose to give up on math and settle with a grade barely passing. My misfortune in math later helped me realize that I needed to change my outlook on school. Instead of dismissing a subject just because I was not good at it, I would rather try and identify what I was doing wrong, and work to fix it. Taking the the ACT engage test helped me realize what my academic strengths and weaknesses are, and how I can use this knowledge to capitalize these strengths so I can be more successful in college than I was in highschool.

There are many different traits that people possess that make them individuals, for me, the most important or prominent trait would probably be my need to always have things planned out in advance and as well as possible. I gained this trait mainly through elementary school, I was very unorganized throughout most of it and even though I wanted to be getting good grades, I was always losing and forgetting about my homework. Over time I think I just started to sort of overcompensate by being much more organized that I need to be. While it can sometimes be hard to plan out everything as much as I would like, it has been very helpful for me in the past with school work and all of my jobs I’ve had for me to be pretty good at organization and time
A weakness that I have is that I can be too empathetic with people. I am an emotional person, especially with certain subjects. But that could be helpful when I am talking with customers, that I will be able to relate to them, and what they are trying to say.
Even if I 'm a person I still got some weakness when I got strengths. I am a person that is humble and shy because I don 't have many friends that treat me how I wanted to be treated. I overload myself with strong sentences and work. When something is going wrong and I think it’s going to be
As one can see there are five areas in this chart. The largest and perhaps also most important fields in this chart are that one understands himself and the environment. It has already been mentioned in the paragraph above that one may first need to understand himself before being able to grow in any direction (Proctor 1984). In this Bachelor Paper the main focus is on personal success characteristics and how these traits can be trained. Internal traits determine the way how one behaves, talks and acts. By doing a guided self-analysis check the trainer asks the trainee critical questions to find out what makes a person tick and why one perceives certain situations in the way they do. Some very destructive thought patterns such as fear, guilt,
In this part I will review myself, about what have I done and what can I do, so I can be closer to my vision. As I have mentioned in my current situations I have strength, weaknesses, opportunity and threats. My strategy is that I want to maintain my strength, overcome my weaknesses and threats and take advantage of the opportunity.
As discussed in Singh (2005), through the centuries personality has been regarded as a practical force in determining success or failure in life. If the person has some socially undesirable traits, he inherited them from his parents. The implication is that neither training nor desire to improve will be of any avail. The implication is that since the physical traits are inherited and thus not subject to change, the personality traits that accompany them are similarly implacable to change (p.122).
