Personality traits show a reflection of how people think, feel, and behave. From the analysis of the results, it was evident that I moderately prefer being an introvert to being an extrovert. Introverts mainly focus more on their internal feelings, thoughts, and moods, and they always tend to inward-turning rather than seek external stimulation as in extroversion. Extroverts are more outgoing, seek external gratification, and are always talkative, gregarious, and assertive (Parks-Leduc et al., 2015). I agree with this result because I believe I am more of an introverted person.
Additionally, it is quite clear from the results that I have a slight preference for sensing over intuition. Sensing is tailored towards the everyday experience, facts, people, and ideas. This type of person mostly utilizes their five senses to process information and is more fact-oriented. However, in intuition, people end up seeking a deeper meaning of what they see, and they are immersed in a world of various possibilities (Fleeson & Jayawickreme, 2015). I agree with the results because I prefer using all of my senses in learning about my environment and frequently dealing with current facts. Moreover, I relatively prefer thinking to feel; therefore, I believe the analysis outcomes are true.
Lastly, the result indicated that I slightly prefer judgment to perception. Judging entails requiring everything to be neat, orderly, and organized. Perceiving involves being open, adaptable, and flexible (Huang et al., 2018). I agree with the results because I value orderly work and completed tasks. I schedule duties and finish them before advancing to leisure activities. I also take deadlines seriously; thus, all my activities are guided by time.
Different people possess different characteristics, which define their personalities. The Myers-Briggs self-assessment test exists to evaluate people’s personalities, and the results can be related to an individual’s personal view of self. I concur with my test score since, under each aspect, it perfectly defined my behaviors and attitudes. The results are fundamental in my interactions with friends and other people. I will put more focus on my areas of strength to increase my productivity throughout life.
