Let's take a closer look at each question, which can help you with your final copy. However, it is also important for you to add your own views, as it is a personal paper and these inventory are general, as none of us fit perfectly into a box. I also attached an APA sample paper to refer to for your final copy.


1. Describe what you learned about yourself in this exercise.

From your inventory scores, you found that your personality traits are Introverted, Sensing, Thinking and Judging or ISTJ. This tells you a lot about yourself, and sometimes when we take an inventory like this, we learn things about ourselves that we did not know before, as each trait has specific characteristics associated with it.

For example, based on your score on the inventory, you scored higher on the introvert scale than on the extrovert scale. This means that your energy is "directed inward to the INNER world of thoughts, interests, ideas, and imagination" (http://www.personalitypathways.com/type_inventory.html), including:

? Thinking/reflecting first, then Act
? Regularly requiring an amount of "private time" to recharge batteries
? Motivated internally, mind is sometimes so active it is "closed" to outside world
? Preferring one-to-one communication and relationships http://www.personalitypathways.com/type_inventory.html

Based on your scores on the inventory, as a sensor, this that means you have the following characteristics:

? Mentally live in the Now, attending to present opportunities
? Using common sense and creating practical solutions is automatic-instinctual
? Memory recall is rich in detail of facts and past events
? Best improvise from past experience
? Like clear and concrete information; dislike guessing when facts are "fuzzy" http://www.personalitypathways.com/type_inventory.html

Because you scored higher on the thinking personality trait than on the feeling, you would have the following characteristics related to how you form judgments and make choices:

? Instinctively search for facts and logic in a decision situation.
? Naturally notices tasks and work to be accomplished.
? Easily able to provide an objective and critical analysis.
? Accept conflict as a natural, normal part of relationships with people. http://www.personalitypathways.com/type_inventory.html
