I am not one that likes to hurt other people’s feelings. The MBTI also had more questions so I believe it personally obtained a more accurate result for myself. Additionally, the open- mindedness and the conscientious categories within the Big Five assessment are very accurate with my personality. A way that I can use the knowledge from the personality assessments and apply it to my personal life is to attempt to make decisions that are more thinking based when it comes to coping with emotions. My decisions are heavily based off feeling instead of thinking. I should spend more time thinking through emotional decisions so that I am able to feel more in control and can make up a game plan. A way that I can use the knowledge from the personality assessments and apply it to my professional life is to learn to be more extroverted when it comes to leading or working in group settings, being more sociable and interactive will help contribute to any kind of problem-solving and social network building. Another way I can apply the
assessment to my professional life is to be more assertive when it comes to decision making. I tend to cater decisions to please the crowd instead of deciding what is best for a situation. I believe that the MBTI assessment test is more valid and reliable. The MBTI tool has been used for several years by millions of people at various companies, colleges, universities, and government agencies across the United States (Cunningham, 2012). Additionally, Cunningham states that roughly two million people a year utilize the assessment (Cunningham, 2012). Therefore, I believe that since so many people are taking the time to take part in this test, plus statistics are showing huge financial success, then the assessment is doing things the correct way and pushing out the right results.
