First, I took the keirsey Temperament Sorter personality test. “The Keirsey Temperament Sorter (KTS) could be used to indicate the way people learn to think about decisions. The KTS test was used to analyze the potential linkages between situational personality traits that are known to be important to decision-making skills. This test measures situational personality by focusing on learned behavior.”- Dammier, Patricia Riley. The elements of personality that are being measured are supervisors, inspectors, providers, and protectors which are guardians.The four temperament are guardians,artists ,idealist and rational. “Educators across the nation have opportunities to discover their teaching styles, as well as identify their personality traits and/or temperament as strategies for improving their effectiveness in the classroom. Most educators are familiar with the Myers-Briggs Type Indicators, which provide information on sixteen personality types” -Juanita Warren. When I took the personality test I was between E and I,N,Fand between P and J.The letter E stand for extraversion which involves in interacting with people,taking interest in broad topics ,tend to act first than to think and etc, but I think I’m more of an Introversion which, involves in concentrating on a few, deep issues and think things through before acting. Then i’m more of an N letter, which possibly stands for Intuition that looks at potential and the possibilities of many things. Letter F, which stands for feelings. It involves in using values,taking a personal,valuing and appreciating many things and etc. The letter J stands for judgement structures and controls life’s,making decisions and having a closure and etc. Letter P stands for perception in flexibility, inquiring, being spontaneous,and etc. I am a guardian temperament ,which I do tend to be cautions about things and my surroundings,responsible and etc. I am helpful ,hard working person and I am a trustworthy person. Being a guardian we would be responsible parents, have loyal mates, and stabilizing leaders. We would join groups,prize gratitude, we are concerned citizens, we can have a lot of fun with our friends, and we get our work done. I think the personality test is appropriate for measuring personality characteristics. I think that the personality description is very general. I do agree that the test assessment matches my personality. I took a second assessment called Mental Muscle Diagram Indicator(MMDI) personality test. This test helps me work out my personality type and it helps others do the same. MMDI provides information about personality career enjoyment,and what makes someone a good leader. Functions of this assessment are sensation, intuition ,thinking and feeling. Extroversion ,introversion, judgment and perception is to describe how I could possibly use the functions.When I took the assessment the most important personality that I have is feelings.”The Extroversion/Introversion attitude concerns a person’s preference of interacting with the external environment and with other people. Sensing/Intuition and Thinking/Feeling describe how new information is understood and interpreted and the way in which decisions are made. The fourth dimension of the personality model is Judging/Perception, which describes the character of an individual’s lifestyle and organizational preferences”-Eirini Martinou. When I took the assessment feelings and thinking is how much I tend to use it in a introverted way. Sensation and Intuition I tend to use it more in a extroversion way.When I got my leadership results after taking the test ,which is ideological leader that focus the group on those things that are most important .Then action -oriented leadership,which focuses on the immediate takes at hands and see it through to fruition. A changed oriented leader who promotes the exploration of new and better ways of doing things. Leadership theorist base their decision on evidence.The least leadership that I have in myself is an executive leader were a leader uses a command and control structure to ensure everyone knows what they need to do.I do think that this assessment is offered specific on being a leader and what type of leader that I can possibly be. I agree with my test assessment with my personality. I also took another assessment test called the Zodiac sign personality test.”The purpose of this study was to contribute to the general body of research and literature concerning the horoscope as a valid instrument for measuring personality traits by comparing the natal chart Moon variable, an established major factor in horoscope analysis and interpretation, to personality domains measured by the NEO PI-R”.- Keith Burke. “The origin of astrology is thought to begin with the ancient Babylonians two centuries before the birth of Christ”.-Grafton, N.S.W. who developed the assessment. The twelve astrological signs are Fire: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius. Earth: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn.Air: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius.Water: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces. “First, astrologers and personality psychologists assume that people possess stable characteristics that, to varying degrees, determine their behavior. This assumption gives personality assessment its value. Second, both astrologers and psychologists assume that the instruments they have developed for this purpose can measure these traits. Despite these similarities, astrology and trait psychology represent very different theories about the causes of personality. Astrologers believe an individual’s character is determined by the arrangement of the planets and stars in relation to the moment of that person’s birth”-Wyman, Alyssa Jayne; Vyse, Stuart. When I took the zodiac test my results was Pisces the element is water.The symbol is a fish.Date range: February 19 – March 20.Traits of Pisces are moodiness,empathy,moderate, extraversion,and distrust.Strengths: Compassionate, artistic, intuitive, gentle, wise, musical. Weaknesses: Fearful, overly trusting, sad, desire to escape reality, can be a victim .Pisces likes: Being alone, sleeping, music, romance, visual media, swimming,and spiritual themes.Pisces dislikes: Know-it-all, being criticized, the past coming back to haunt, and cruelty of any kind.I think it is appropriate the test measuring personalities. The description of personality was very general. I believe that this assessment test that I took of my personality is wrong because I was born on September 22, which I am a Virgo. My element is earth. Quality: Mutable.Ruler is Mercury.Date range: August 23 – September 22.Strengths: Loyal, analytical, kind, hardworking, practical.Weaknesses: Shyness, worry, overly critical of self and others, all work and no play.Virgo likes: Animals, healthy food, books, nature, and cleanliness.Virgo dislikes: Rudeness, asking for help, and taking center stage. I have these traits and my personality fits right in. My overall experience was very interesting. I do feel personality assessment is a valid tool. My results reflected my understanding and how I learned more about personality. I did learn many things from the experience. Virgos are intelligent, patient, and humble. With Mercury as the ruling planet, people born under this sign are quick-thinking, observant, and analytical ,which is interesting. I leaned more things about being a Virgo and being a guardian from the personality assessment that I have taken. My overall experience was good. I have learned things that I didn’t know before.
