Katharine Briggs and Isabel Myers developed this assessment to help people understand themselves better as well as those around them. (Myers, 1998). Currently, the MBTI Assessment is seen as the most popular personality assessment used not only for counseling sessions but by corporations, large and small, that want to create more effective teams. The assessment is easy to complete and comprehend; however the struggle is to put the lessons learned into practice. By incorporating the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, faculty can layer this assessment with Socialization and Jablin’s Model of Organizational Assimilation (1987, 2001) to help develop and increase student retention/involvement in the classroom.
University-corporate partnerships have an established history (Ryan & Heim, 1997), which will help us glean insight to make them work for our stakeholders. Key Learning Even with those motivating factors, the competing priorities of leadership became clearer this week. As the leader, I am interested in the benefits of university-corporate partnerships, but I also am paying particular attention to the possibility of this partnership because of the state initiative. Funding provided to the corporation (Laureate, 2015) may be of direct benefit to GCU.

Cultural diversity is very important because we learn from one another, we come up with new ways of thinking, and it helps us recognize ways of being that are not necessarily our own. This diversity has built bridges to trust, respect, and understanding of many cultures around the world. Furthermore, this diversity makes our nation more of an interesting place to live, as many immigrants from many diverse cultures contribute to the new knowledge and different experiences that make this grand nation unique. It will be such a shame for the United States to close its doors to the immigrants who risk their lives to try to find an opportunity to build a better life for themselves and their families in this majestic nation of
This was beneficial because it allowed us to gather feedback on the positive and negative aspects of our service learning so far. Such discussion among the team is important because it encourages dialogues among and between the team. Not only that these dialogues would challenge us to think of solutions and alternatives. With new solutions and alternatives, we can further improve this service learning experience for both the students and our chosen community. Without a doubt, through this discussion, I learnt more about my groupmates and it was an eye-opener to hear different perspectives on similar issues.

Its mission is to enhance human well-being and promote human rights and social and economic justice for people who are disadvantaged to achieve an equitable, healthy, and productive society, which is highly consistent with my values. Sharing this mission, I am able to learn how to play a part in improving the life situation of vulnerable groups, especially in mainland China, where limited social work resources are allocated to them. I find UW Madison also attaches great importance to respecting students’ rights, which is always emphasized in the process of social work. Here the spirit of inquiry thrives, and respect for all persons and an understanding of difference and diversity are practiced.

It holds worth along with falseness that can be misguiding, but it still exists today. Therefore, it has sustained the duration of time, and should be perceived as useful in all education systems.

Therefore, I contradict my own interoperation on social efficiency ideology, to a degree, much like I thought of Bobbitt’s view above.
