MBTI Self Assessment Essay

Choosing an occupation is not an easy step because it may last a lifetime; therefore it should bring joy and fit you better than your favorite shoes. To buy good shoes you should choose the ones you like most and try them on, with a career trying on different jobs is too effort and time-consuming.

That is why self-assessment tools are gaining more and more popularity. Analyzing personality, values and interests may be useful for further career planning, and one of such useful tools is the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator Instrument.

According to MBTI test, my result is ENTJ (Extraverted iNtuitive Thinking Judging). Frankly, I was quite surprised to find out that the system determined my personality as extraverted, although I totally agree with the “intuitive” result.

Unlike the Sensing one, an Intuitive personality lives in the Future, not Now, and uses imagination instead of common sense, favors hints instead of facts – and that is just the way I am. For me it is always more important to imagine my life in the future – not to think of the daily errands. I like dreaming and theoretical living, not the way things really are. I enjoy trying new things, and living my life differently every day.
