Your personality and interests can help understand your own behavior and why you act a certain way. Knowing what type of environment you excel in and areas where you need to make improvements can help you choose a career path in which you will not only be successful, but happy as well. The TypeFocus assessments are one way to better understand yourself and help you create future career goals. According to the TypeFocus personality assessment, my Myers-Briggs personality type is INTP. The letter I means that I am more introverted and focus more energy on thinking about the inner world.
Even though it can be frustrating to start out working with individuals that you do not yet know, the results are always better. There are more ideas, that stimulate other ideas. Where one member may have strengths in one area, another member can bring additional strengths to the table in other areas. I do think that teams should be smaller groups as there is a fine line between having too many participants and not enough. Too many would make it difficult to ensure everyone had a voice and still maintain productiveness.
They said I am better at learning new ways to do things, which I feel is true. But I feel that some of the jobs it said for me are too basic, I feel that they are not complex enough for what a good job is. A good job is one where you work hard and feel like you earned the money.
However, I believe that the dark sides of these positive traits are my biggest weaknesses: lack of empathy and image-consciousness. I often have trouble empathizing with others situations did not turn out the way that they had hoped. For example, when one of my Plebes fails a Professional Knowledge quiz, my first reaction is to criticize them for displaying a lack of effort and not studying. In doing so, I am unable to find the root of their problems; perhaps they are struggling in an academic class, having emotional difficulties, or do not even know how to study properly. My other leadership weakness, image-consciousness, comes about when I fail to do what is right because I am worried that others will dislike me for it.
This still shows that working together as a collaborative leader is better than just taking orders and doing whatever one person says. Another example is in source D which states, “Most people don’t respond well to getting verbally attacked… stating your view and then working out the issue will be much more productive.” This is saying how people do not like to be screamed at or verbally abused, but if they were a little more nicer and found out how to work it out together, it would be a better team effort. This supports collaborative because people don't like to be yelled at and taking orders. They want to work together and reach one common goal.
One will not be easily manipulated by others because they stick to their morals and belief, it will also be easier because with motivation comes hard work. Hard work is attractive and thus people will be more inclined to go out of their way speak to you if they see that you are successful, especially people who too themselves are successful. When speaking to others, it is important to keep an open mind and avoid being ethnocentric. Someone who is ethnocentric is described as not being able to see where other people are coming from, they compare everyone else’s culture to their own and fail to accept the differences, thus they are blinded by diversity. But I digress, cultural intelligence is defined by the International Journal of Cross Cultural Management (2008) as “…a system of interacting knowledge and skills, linked by cultural metacognition, that allows people to adapt to, select, and shape the cultural aspects of their environment.”
There also lies a more positive meaning behind the quote, which is the uniqueness between the human species. The later part of the quote says that not everyone has the same advantages you have, so in my interpretation of this it means that not everyone has gone through what you have and that everyone is not skilled in the way you are or the way I am. Proof lies in both me the writer and you the reader, in the way that we are most definitely different, as you are most likely teacher or a peer, have different skills and most importantly are criticizing my skills and "advantages" I have by reading this paper. In conclusion this statement in my opinion is true and I would also like it to be true as if we didn 't have our own advantages in life we would all be eerily similar and life itself would be boring.
To summarize, throughout most of middle school and high school you worked with another person, and now colleges are demanding students to think for their own, so students are finding it complicated to require information without using another source. Third of all, the parenting of students has caused a decline in the current generation’s ethics. Experts are saying parents are also to blame… that in today’s culture they have trouble accepting that children make mistakes and fail (Perez-Pena & Tricia Bertram Gallant). Over all perspective, neither parents nor institutions
Not only did this paper have to be 1500-1800 words but it also needed research and documentation. Once again, time management was lacked in the process. At the time this assignment was given we were settled into the school year. With this being said, juggling school work, a job, and this class, I did not have any time for this paper. My Investigative Report did not meet the page length, audience identification, nor revision.
Depending on the person though I can struggle to accept that feedback without issue. Most of the time I struggle with receiving negative feedback from the people I am the closest to. Specifically, my family has a tendency to be hypocritical and expects perfection so I struggle when getting feedback from them. I especially struggle when it is knit picky criticism from my family. In any other environment I am open to receiving feedback.
I have learned through experience that the best leader that people want to help is one that assists in all tasks that need to be completed in a project but one that also steps back and lets others take responsibility. Through the many projects I have helped execute in my school, I believe I have made a positive difference; yet, I did not want to be seen as the assigned
It puts a lot of stress on the takers, but if it was not important it would not be used. some aspects of it are to powerful, but that can be fixed. Testing needs to stay in the schooling system because of it 's many uses. It allows capable student to go to collage at less the cost so they can benefit society as a whole. If a someone has no money to go and learn he or she will never live up to his or her full
It’s also stressful because I’m here on a scholarship. That scholarship requires me to pass all my classes with a c- or better. That might not seem like a harsh thing, but combining all the class together leads to a world of stress. I’m not going to lie I sometimes must neglect a class to focus on another classes work. College is like when
