Personalities and Communication
Myers-Briggs is a well-known personality typing test that identifies strong areas of personality. Personality tests can be taken as part of an interview process or in training to determine your best methods of communication and how you also communicate with others. Click here (http://www.humanmetrics.com) to take a 72-question personality test. You need to select the Jung Typology TestTM given on the website.
Once completed, click Submit and it provides the four letters that are your strengths in key areas. You may click Results and the page describes your strengths and areas of need. After knowing your personality type, answer the following questions by providing examples to support your thoughts:
- What is your four-letter typing result and what conclusions did you come to in terms of agreeing if it accurately describes your overall personality?
- Knowing this information, how will it help you communicate with someone who has the “opposite” personality as you? How will you adjust your personality to better communicate with another individual?
- If you are a manager, how will this information about your staff members help you improve communication when providing instructions, directions, or presentations?
- What leadership traits are your strengths and what areas will you need to develop to be an effective leader?
- How will you motivate your staff if there is a mix of various personalities and each member may be motivated by different measures?
- How will you take the results and work to improve communication methods in the workplace?
