Williams Personality Essay

I am so proud of this class. I am finally really learning about ME! Yet I know that I have a whole lot more to be revealed about me. I feel like the more you know yourself, the better you are to stand up for yourself. I have made so many mistakes in my life and have allowed myself to be taken advantage of so many times. As time go on, I realize that I am free to be who God made me to be and I make no apologies for it. I will say it again, I still have a lot more to learn. We took two personalities tests in class. One of them is called Free To Be Who God Made Me. It started out with two scriptures reminding us that God does not make any junk and that I am fearfully and wonderfully made and I should know this from the depths of my soul. It tells us that there are four personality types. They are: the Commanding Choleric, Cheerful Sanguine, Calm Phlegmatic and Clever Melancholy. The test is even designed to help us in choosing a mate and to ...view middle of the document...

On the other hand, I can be relaxed and gentle, peaceful and unruffled, tolerant and mild-mannered, dry wit and efficient and practical. I was pleased with the results and at this point it is true. When I took the Myers-Briggs Preference Questionnaire, that seemed to be a little more detailed. There were no right or wrong answers, just the truth about me. I did take these test with a little trepidation because I hoped I would not seem crazy. When I finished taking them, I said to myself, “I am not so bad after all.” I scored to be ESFJ which told me that I am a team player, able to sense tension and incompatibilities. They described this personality type as Practical, Altruistic and Sociable. Yes. That describes me so far. I am traditional and I do my best to defend authority which is interesting since I am in the Criminal Justice field. I do get offended when people seem to be uninterested in activities that I feel is important. I pay a lot of attention to my looks and I am sensitive about social status. Some famous people that are ESFJ’s are Harry Truman, Bill Clinton, Tyra Banks, Danny Glover, Nancy Kerrigan and “Monica” from Friends. One of my weaknesses was the fear to face who I really was and one of my strength was that I faced the results when I found out what they were. I am learning every day to be a strong woman. This personality will help me in my career field because each day will be different and each client will be different. I have to know how and when to show compassion and when to be firm. My personal comments about my score is that I am pleased but I realize that there is always room for improvement. I feel they were correct and as I continue to grow each day, I want my score to change for the better. Since coming back to school, I have more confidence in my personal life. I know that I have a lot going for myself. I and very thankful that at 41 years of age, I have the opportunity to get my education to make a better life for my children and I. I take no credit but give all the credit to God. Right now, I sacrifice a lot to make it happen but I know that it is well worth it. I appreciate all of my instructors for their time, patience and knowledge.
