My Personality Type
According to Consulting Psychologists Press Inc, the MBTI uses various combinations of the four personality functions resulting in 16 different personality types using. Educational Psychologist, Dr. David Keirsey took it one step further and divided the personality types into four temperaments; Artisans, Guardians, Idealist and Rationals. The results of my test were Introverted Sensing Thinking Judge or ISTJ with strength of preference 22, 12, 1, 22 respectively for each letter of my type. I’m described as a slightly expressed introvert, with a moderately expressed sensing personality, moderately expressed thinking personality, and a distinctively expressed judging personality. Their focus and energy projects outwardly (Intraversion) toward a world of infinite potential and significance (iNtuition), this person primary way of living is focusing externally. This is where most ISTJs tend to deal with things rationally and logically which places them in the Rational temperament. The secondary mode is internal. This is where ISTJs take things in first and foremost via intuition.
How My Specific Type Affects My Behavior at Work.
ISTJ’s are considered to be more as inspectors as described by Joe Butt. Many bosses may seek employees with such a personality because they are more dependable. They have a keen sense of right and wrong, especially in their areas of interest and/or responsibility. They are noted for devotion to duty. Punctuality is a watchword of the ISTJ. The secretary, clerk, or business (wo)man by whom others set their clocks is likely to be an ISTJ. I have now served on Active Duty status in the US Army for nearly 12 years now and these qualities have helped me substantially throughout the years. Many often turn to me for help due to the nature of dependability and dedication to completing the task at hand.
