Project 1 Instructions
This project requires that you complete the Myers-Briggs Personality Test online, and then apply your results. The links and details are in Steps 1 and 2. Read all of the instructions for this assignment before beginning any of your work.
1. Open the following website to complete the assessment: Jung Typology Test.
2. Once complete, click on "Score it" to retrieve your four-letter type.
3. Next, you will need to investigate your Temperament through researching the topic, however the various sites below are suggestions for descriptions of your Type and data on relationships, careers, etc.
1. Personality Page-Four Temperaments: This site allows you to explore the Temperaments by traits
2. Keirsey Overview: This site gives an overview of the Temperaments and Keirsey but doesn't lend itself to a great deal of information. You might find it has some other items of interest for your traits though.
3. Personality Club: This site has a nice visual graphic on the Temperaments for each trait.
4. Using Temperaments links, explore Keirsey's Temperaments and go back to the Jung Typology test site to explore the Sixteen Personality Types using the tabs at the top to locate the description of your type. You may also research beyond these suggested links as long as you cite them properly.
5. Once there, click on links for The Four Preferences, Keirsey's Temperaments, and Overview of the Sixteen Personality Types to locate the description of your type. If you cannot locate them within the Jung site, explore them through the other links.
6. The personality test will reveal your 4-letter type and your 2-letter temperament. In this step, you will discuss the validity of each letter of your type and temperament. Provide your statistical/percentage results for comparison of letters within your discussion. Any adverse personal opinions on the assessment tools must be respectful and scholarly with supportive research.
7. Include a separate section for each letter of your personality type, as well as a section for discussing how the different aspects of your personality (represented by the letters) work together. For example, if you scored with the letter "I," then that letter with your type will be a heading: I-Introverted.
• You must have separate sub-headings for each section.
• Give specific examples from your life-especially your work life-and discuss the weaknesses of your personality type as well. Refer to the Presentation: "Lesson 1-A Worldview Perspective on Organizational Behavior," found in the Module/Week 1 Reading & Study folder.
1. Apply the Type Talk at Work textbook, which focuses on how various personality types relate at work. The book must be evident within the discussion, not simply cited, with specific, applied topics.
2. Using the Type Talk at Work textbook as your guide, discuss the things you have learned about yourself that will help you understand your organization and your role within it. In a new section in your paper (labeled Step 2), answer the following questions with specific correlation to the book:
• In general, what have you learned from these personality tests about organizational behavior that will help you be a better employee, coworker, and/or manager?
• In particular, what have you learned about yourself from this personality test that will help you be a better employee, coworker, and/or manager? Provide specific examples.
