I am outgoing when meeting new people and when working in teams, I like to take charge to make sure everything is in order.
However, this attribute could be detrimental in the future when assigned to teams, as I need to learn how to actively listen to others so that they can contribute effectively to the project.
For instance, when I meet a large group of unfamiliar people, I am reserved and lack confidence in expressing my true character from feeling uncomfortable.
I also consider myself introverted when I have to complete something that I consider high importance.
From the test results, it was apparent I has various strengths and weaknesses which affect and influence my relationships, communication style and preferences, that are detailed and integrated with the analysis of diagnostic tools.
From gaining self-awareness of various weaknesses identified in the results through completing the diagnostic tools, I could identify strategies to undertake to enhance my communication skills and positive relationships, thus giving me the ability to grow and adapt advantageously in the future.An example of an interpersonal skill is empathy/rapport, which involves building interpersonal relationships whilst establishing familiarity (Tynan, Wolstencroft, Edmondson, & Swanson, 2013).These results imply that in the future, I am likely to build cohesive relationships with employees through sympathy and cooperation.However in comparison, I received the lowest score in the BFI’s extroversion dimension.This contradiction displays that whether I depict extrovert or introverted characteristics depends on the situation present; it is a contingent trait.These facets accentuate that in my relationships i am more likely to trust and forgive others and form perceptions based on empathy.Also, they both emphasise the ability to be warm and conciliate with others before making decisions, rather than focusing on impersonal success or goals (Hogan & Champagne, 1985).Just as all human beings are born with a unique fingerprint, everyone possesses and exhibits a difference type of personality.Throughout this essay I will be explain four diagnostic tools of analysing ones personality and the preferences we choose, being the Personal Style Inventory, The Big Five Indicator, Human Dynamics and Emotional Intelligence.Such implications mean I lack direction and may not meet deadlines in my career as tasks won’t be completed on time (Hogan & Champagne, 1985).Therefore in the future, I need to be more logical, that is reason intended to established a proposition, by becoming more assertive.
