ENTP Myers-Briggs Type Indicator
Our personalities can anticipate our mood, feelings and energy towards each other. It will show how an individual reacts and performs to a task or an obstacle, w hether the ce rtain individual will perform we ll under pressure or crumble down. In my research of the Myers-Briggs type indicator , it gave me the perception about how well our personalities distribute in our everyday life. My personality type is ENTP, as determined from MBTI (Myers Briggs Type Indicator.) This information that I retain from the MBTI result s will determine how I interact in my relationship, work and my communication style. In this research assignment, I will explore the result s from the test about how my personality a ffect s my future jobs, future relationships and how I learn as an individual.
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator or the (MBTI) test results are acquired from a sequences of questions individuals must answer honestly to elicit a truthful response regarding to their personality type. The MBTI tool was developed in the 1940s by Isabel Briggs Myers and her mother Katharine Briggs (Watchwellcast), at first it was used by her mother to help her determined the best vacation for her child ( Myers-Brigss ). Furthermore , Isabel added her own imaginat ion and drive which helped built the MBTI ( Myers-Briggs Type Indicator ) .
Based on Carl Jung's theory of types, the MBTI helps the candidates identify their 16-personality type. These four basic steps narrow down their possibility: The first step is to relate the way people become aware of the outside world, the second step is how to make the right decision in certain situation, the third step is their degree of flexibility, and the last step is orientation toward the outside world (Lynch) .
The test categorizes people as sensing or intuitive (S or N), thinking or feeling (T or F), judging or perceiving (J or P), introverted or extroverted (I or E). There are 16 possible combinations of these preferences (such as ISTJ or EPNF), and each combination displays common personality characteristics (Lynch) . Analysis of MBTI tests taken by 722 law enforcement personnel revealed that a slight majority were introverts (inner-directed people). Over three-quarters preferred sensing over the intuitive mode, 85 percent preferred thinking over feeling, and about 83 percent judging over perceiving (Lynch) . This suggests that most law enforcement personnel are STJ's who are logical in nature and design their environments to close ou t issues as quickly as possible.
My personality type is ENTP. Some personality characteristics used to describe this category are: Very competitive and opportunistic, not backing down from anyone, willing to take chances, very confident and insecure at the same time, but most of all ENTP are in sensitive types, and society in general, are often conflict-averse, preferring feelings, comfort, and even white lies over unpleasant truths and hard rationality. I will be explaining my personality characteristic, in a detailed manner, through my chosen career path. My research will include how I handle my relationships, how I communicate in my career path, and my learning style.
In the world of careers, I have the benefit of being naturally engaged and interested in being productive and helpful. But rather than the sort of people-oriented helpfulness that Diplomat personality types bring to the table, my personalities are focused on developing solutions to interesting and diverse technical and intellectual problems. ENTPs are a versat ile personality type. It may take time for me to get to a point where I can fully utilize my skillset and qualities. "They are likely to find that those qualities translate well into pretty much any career that so much as piques their interest " (16personalities , par 3 ). My personality traits is very demanding. I tend to make small talk into an argument, but just because the person I'm arguing with has the right facts. I will find a way to win that argument by listening to every word they say , and once they said the wrong thing. I will dig deep to use their mistake against them. All this intellectual
