Personality Theories - PSY362

Argosy University



Well Myers-Briggs test what do why do I really need to know what my personality is like. What is so telling about this test? Does it really work; will it show my true personality? How will it help me in my life and in my chosen profession? Will it make me a better leader or will it so me what I need to work on to improve short comings in my life. How will it help with being a counselor and how will it help in treating a client. Does your mood affect the test and if you are nervous does it affect the outcome when taking the test for a job. Is there a right or wrong answer? There is a lot of question to answer, will my first thought that it will be based on how the question are presented or by how you react to each question? This is one of the more interesting tests that I have taken over the years that always seem to change with every year.

I have taken this test many times, but this week I took twice. Once when I was in a very good mood and the second when I was bit stressed over life in general. The first test it showed me being: ESTJ which I will break down shortly that each come with a percentage of each Extraverted, Sensing, Thinking and Judging. So to look at the strength of preferences percentage: 1% slightly expressed extravert, 12% slightly expressed sensing personality, 25% moderately expressed thinking personality and 44% moderately expressed judging personality. As I looked at each of these I think that maybe they are factual to appoint, I am a little more Extraverted than this studies say which bring up the question from the site I used, which is: Where question out dated or has my life changed in five years, I feel the question are out dated that they don't deal with the fast pace life we live in today's world.

Test two shows that I was: ISTJ so let's see a little stressed out and I am: Introverted (I) 53.13%, Extroverted (E) 46.88%, Sensing (S) 60%. Intuitive (N) 40%, Thinking (T) 64.86%, Feeling (F) 35.14%, and Judging (J) 62.16% and Perceiving (P) 37.84%. So the test taken at similar minds com with many of the same question shows a different result. Is that the only factor or do we look at the question differently while in a calm nature mood or do we look at the question differently when trying to do a interview or even homework when trying to keep your Grade Point Average up. It seems that the biggest different is in the wording of the question. Both test were conducted on the same day but one was in the morning shortly after getting up to begin the day and the other was done in the afternoon shortly after being under the stresses of the day.

The reason I explained the above is that we have to see if these test really show he we are: I am very much a leader which in the first test shows me being slightly extroverted, but anyone who knows me would tell you I seem to be the person who is always the loudest and everyone always know that I am the Alpha in the room. People also know that I am very judgmental. Because I believe there is: a right way, wrong way and Jeff's way to complete a task or even what you should do in life. My niece always tells everyone that her Uncle Jeff is her favorite Uncle, but if you want to know about right or wrong ask someone else. Because he is very blunt and straight forward. This is why I laugh a lot when I decided to become a Substance Abuse Counselor, because you have to listen and do what is best for the client and let your belief's go be set aside.

What are my three strength and weakness? I am a leader everyone seems to be drawn to me for that reason, I am the first to
