5. Personality - Pt 1

Before you start, if you want a quick diversion, then try this off-site link to
offsitelink The Personality Index to see what type of personality you have...

Many personality characteristics are listed below.

Each one ranges from one extreme to the other.

For each one of these, your first task is to mark with an 'X' the spot where you think your personality lies.

introverted .......................................extroverted
charming .................................................rude
polite............................................ill-mannered
sociable .............................................solitary
shy .................................................confident
cold .....................................................warm
serious ..............................................flippant
emotional .........................................unemotional
friendly ................................................aloof
determined .................................easily discouraged
ambitious .........................................unambitious
steady .............................................changeable
diplomatic ..............................................blunt
disciplined .....................................undisciplined
dominant............................................submissive
NOW, for each one, GO BACK AND MARK (with a tick) WHERE YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE.

Is there much difference between what you ARE and what you WANT to be like?

For those characteristics where there is a significant difference, do you want to change? Can you?

Do you think that you might be able to vary your personality to suit certain situations?

In what situations is this most likely to be useful to you?

Have you learnt anything about yourself from this exercise which will help you in some way with your career decision? What?
