I chose to take the Personality test provided by MyPlan.com. It was a very basic test that asked me a number of questions regarding the type of thinker, communicator, and motivator that I perceive myself as. Based on the legendary work of Swiss psychologist Carl Jung and his pioneering typological models, the Career Personality Test will help you discover what personality type you are and use that information to build a profile of what might satisfy you in a career.
The website offers many different assessments that are designed to help students and professionals plan more fulfilling lives by making well-informed decisions about their education and careers. They offer analyzing quizzes in the realms of personality tests, skills profiling, career matches, and interest inventories. All of which take your ideals and transform them into a data-filled result page of what work environment best fits the individual.
This outcome fits the type of person that I am, perfectly. I have a strong head on my shoulders and I always aim at being the center of attention and seeking perfection. At the same time I can get off track by drawing or daydreaming. I am a social butterfly with a caring and subjective heart. I believe that I have become a strong and free-spirited person. I am extroverted when it comes to social situations and energy levels. I am intuitive when it comes to relationships and imagination. I am more of a feeler than a thinker, meaning I am compassionate and empathetic to others, being primarily guided by my heart instead of my head. I am a perceiver and impulsive instead of a straight-forward judger.
These outcomes explain the type of personality that I acquire. I believe that the upcoming world needs more people that are enthusiastic, warm, adaptive and versatile like me. The world and its culture and population are changing by the second and the world’s inhabitants need to rid themselves of the narrow-minded perspective that everybody is going to be exactly the same. Different perspectives and different ideals need to be pinpointed on and focused on in order for people to understand one another and develop positive work places. I believe that supportive and expressive people are the building bricks to society and they aid everyone around them to grow and prosper as individuals.
I believe this outcome represents the person that I would love to portray myself as in the Advertising/Public Relations field. Obviously that shows that I’m strong minded and passionate about my tasks. I feel as if the factors that go into making career choices should relate to a person’s personality. If you’re an introvert, you cannot be on a stage or in front of a camera. It depends on the type of person you are and your interests what job best fits you. I can help people in the business environment while making my voice heard. The described words or Enterprising and Artistic match me perfectly. I am AMBITIOUS, OPTIMISTIC, COMPETITIVE, CONFIDENT, EXPRESSIVE, AND IMAGINATIVE. While at the same time I focus mainly on “winning” and “independence”. I love working towards success and feel that I am the holder of my future. Nobody is building my own path, and my goals depend on my willingness to succeed.
“Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some hire public relations officers” -Daniel J. Boorstin
As a part of the UCF Knight family, I believe that I am well rounded and some of my results should be projected in every student on UCF’s campus. People need to develop understanding compassion for one another. Everybody is diverse and it takes consideration and friendliness to adapt to the changing society.
Understanding is key to communication. It is important to remember that in order to fully understand and communicate with another person, one needs an open mind and an open heart. I believe personality tests should open people’s eyes and let them recognize who they truly are and see what type of person they portray themselves as. Anybody can act pretentious and outwardly state that they have a strong head on their shoulders, but do they even believe themselves?
I love that I’m creative, yes I procrastinate and live each moment like it is my last, that could be one of my biggest downfalls. And it took me taking this personality test in order for me to really recognize the fact that my passiveness is one of my biggest downfalls, but it takes motivation in order to overcome failure. The UCF student is diverse. My college is a melting pot of different cultures, people, and creativity.
And here’s a positive video to leave you with as you aspire to your goals and planning your future.
