Today, Precious Robinson, Counseling Manager of the UCLA Graduate Student Services at the UCLA Career Center, lead a highly interactive Meyer Briggs self assessment workshop with the UCLA ASDA Chairs. The MBTI is based on 4 dichotomies: extraversion/introversion, sensing/intuition, thinking/feeling, and judging/perceiving. Some objectives for taking the exam were to: increase self-awareness and confirm self-perception, discover normal differences in people, and appreciate and learn to capitalize on our own strengths and those of others. The types we receive are innate, influenced, observed, not type-casted, and are a preference—not a skill. The group participated in several exercises that allowed us to self-report our types before receiving the types that were designated to us by our indicators.
Understanding one's personality traits is a definite way for our ASDA leaders to be able to utilize their strengths towards their own professional growth and development. General Characteristics: E: energized by the external world, I: energized by the internal world, S: working with specifics and facts, N: see possibilities and patterns, T: decide using impersonal analysis and logic, F: decide using personal values or beliefs, J: prefer a planned, orderly life, P: prefer a flexible spontaneous life. Which categories do you mostly associate with? To learn more regarding the Myers-Briggs Assessment, please visit www.cpp.com.
