Each person has their own personality, it provides great insight into people and their lives. We all make personality judgments about the people we know or don’t know, but an important factor is to know our personality characteristics. Personality is the combination of characteristics or qualities that form an individual’s distinctive character. Our characteristics define how we think, act and the choices we make. There are many different types of personalities such as the Meyers Briggs to identify a person’s personality type. The Meyers Briggs include five personality aspects that, when combined, define the personality type; Mind, Energy, Nature, Tactics, and Identity.
Mind and energy where mind show how we interact with our surroundings and energy determine how we see the world and process information. Each type has two kinds, for the mind, you have introvert and extrovert. Introverted people tend to get exhausted by social interaction and they prefer unsocial activities to do within themselves. On the other hand, extraverted people love getting thrilled by group activities and social interactions. Following, the two types of energy are observant and intuitive. Observant’s are down to earth individuals who have strong habits and always are focusing on current or past events. Meanwhile being an intuitive means that the person is very imaginative, open-minded and curious. I am an extrovert and intuitive, I love going to social events and be around people to talk to. It gives me joy and excitement when I am in public places full of people. I consider myself a very open-minded person, I support all kinds of cultures, genders, sexuality, and opinions. I may have my own opinion but I’ll always support others.
Secondly, the aspects that determine how we make decisions and cope with emotions and the reflection of our approach to work, planning, and decision-making are Nature and tactics. The two types of nature are thinking, where they mainly focus on being fair and within reasons and prioritizing logic over emotions. They tend to hide their feelings and that productivity is more important. The second type is feeling, instead of prioritizing logic over emotion, they are very sensitive and effectively convey their feelings. They are less competitive but compassionate. Meanwhile, tactics have either judging or prospecting. Judging are strong-minded, thorough and highly organized individuals. On the other hand, prospecting individuals are very good at improvising and spotting opportunities. Personally, I am feeling and judging, in a situation, I do not think with my brain instead I tend to try and see how this will affect the others emotionally and try to make everyone happy.
Last but not least, the Identity aspect is the foundation of all other aspects. It shows your confidence in your abilities and decisions. Assertive and turbulent are what underpins all the others. Being an assertive means the person is a tempered, self-assured and resistance to stress. They don’t worry too much and they don’t push themselves harder when it comes to achieving goals. Meanwhile turbulent are the complete opposite, they self-conscious and very sensitive to stress. They experience a wide range of emotions and are eager to perfectionist and to improve in anything. Individually I am turbulent, it may be hard to be a turbulent sometimes but when I want to improve or change in something I would always try my best to in the most purist formalist way.
In conclusion, personality represents who you are. Knowing your personality is very important for yourself. It does not have to be from this personality test. As long as you know who you are, how to act and make decisions that are right for you then that’s good. There is no shame in self-improvement, enlightening yourself every day is one of the main things that’ll make you a happy person.
