Self AssessmentJournal & Reflective Summary Details

Over the course of the term, students will participate in several assessments aimed at increasing personal awareness and encouraging growth and development.  The goal of this assignment is to complete a self-assessment, reflect on your results  and then add a “reflective entry” to your journal.  Each entry should be completed directly following the self assessment to keep your thoughts focused and fresh.   I recommend using a single Word document and simply use subtitles, beginning with entry # 1: MBTI.

Your reflective journal entries may be as long as you would like but should focus on your thoughts, concerns, and ah-ha moments related to the results and experience completing the assessment.  By the end of the course, you will have completed about 5-6 self assessments and journal entries. Your final step is to read through all entries in your journal and consider the connections, reflective thoughts and opportunities for your future growth.  You will then prepare a reflection summary (it can be added at the very end of your journal and can be as long as you want).  You should focus your reflection on areas of growth and development.

The Myers-Briggs Type Test
Part I
1. Where is your energy naturally directed?
Extraverts’ energy is directed primarily outward, towards people and things outside of themselves. Introverts’ energy is
primarily directed inward, towards their own thoughts, perceptions, and reactions. Everyone uses both Extraversion and
Introversion to carry out day-to-day activities. However, one of the two will be more natural and comfortable, even if
ever so slightly. Which of the following two lists as a whole sounds more like you -Extravert (E) or Introvert (I)?

Extravert (E) or Introvert (I)
2. What kind of information do you naturally notice and remember?
Sensors notice the facts, details, and realities of the world around them whereas Intuitives are more interested in
connections and relationships between facts as well as the meaning, or possibilities of the information. Everyone uses both
Sensing and Intuition to carry out day-to-day activities. However, one of the two will be more natural and comfortable,
even if ever so slightly. Which of the following two lists as a whole sounds more like you – Sensor (S) or Intuitive (N)?
Sensors often:

Sensor (S) or Intuitive (N)
3. How do you decide or come to conclusions?
Thinkers make decisions based primarily on objective and impersonal criteria–what makes the most sense and what is
logical. Feelers make decisions based primarily on their personal values and how they feel about the choices. Everyone
uses both Thinking and Feeling to carry out day-to-day activities. However, one of the two will be more natural and
comfortable, even if ever so slightly. Which of the following two lists as a wholesounds more like you – Thinker (T)
or Feeler (F)?

Thinker (T) or Feeler (F)
4. What kind of environment makes you the most comfortable?
Judgers prefer a structured, ordered, and fairly predictable environment, where they can make decisions and have things
settled. Perceivers prefer to experience as much of the world as possible, so they like to keep their options open and are
most comfortable adapting. Everyone uses both Judging and Perceiving to carry out day-to-day activities. However, one
of the two will be more natural and comfortable, even if ever so slightly. Which of the following two lists as a
whole sounds more like you – Judger (J) or Perceiver (P)?

Pay attention to time & are prompt

Misplace things easily
Play first, then work later
