The person I am interviewing is my wife, Danielle. She prefers Dani as a nick-name. Unfortunately she is 20 years younger than me. (I don’t look or feel anywhere near my 48 years would on someone else, perhaps it is the little kid that is still within me that keeps me young.) However, I believe that comparison of her answers with mine should be interesting to review. The first question I asked her was “Do you think that the average standardized psychological tests such as the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator one. She feels that they are not an accurate method of testing because some children and adults for some reason just do not do well taking tests, but if approached outside of the classroom and asked the same questions, they tend to know the material. My own personal experience with a standardized test such as the Myers-Briggs test and other standard type tests has always been positive. I have always tried to take criticism that is both positive and negative. I have always felt you need to look at all sides of an issue, whether it be of a personal nature or not. If you cannot accept things about yourself that you do not like, you can never progress forward. I decided to take the Myers-Briggs test a few times myself before I started my interview. I found several links online for this type of test, and many of them redirected me to www.humanmetrics.com/cgi-win/jTypes2.asp. I found the results to be of no surprise at all. The test results with the Jung Career indicator showed me choices of counseling, psychology, social work and teaching. I have thought about careers in all of those fields because I feel I would get a great deal of personal satisfaction from them, much like I did when I drove para-transit for special needs kids and people in Northern California a few years ago. That job made me feel blessed even though the pay was a joke.

Final Project: Interview Profile Some of the other parts of the test reveled parts of my personality that even my wife had to agree with were dead on. (Extraverted, intuitive, feeling and judging were the results, again, not a shocker to me.) I think perhaps that my type of personality is one of the ones that work well for standardized tests. I asked her if she remembers information more accurately if she observes it directly or if she prefers to read how the behavior is performed. This question actually gets a response of ‘both’ from the two of us. We both prefer to observe the behavior directly because that is what usually yields the best, unbiased first hand results. We all do this when we raise our children, or at least this is what my wife and I try to do: We observe the behavior of our 3 year old daughter
