Kolb’s Learning Questionnaire
The purpose of the Koln’s learning questionnaire is to test an individual’s learning preference. This questionnaire categories individual’s learning preference into four groups, which are activist, reflector, theorist, and pragmatist. In my assessment, I had a score of 11, 19, 18, and 16 for activist, reflector, theorist, and pragmatist respectively. Based on the Kolb’s Learning Styles (1984), I have a strong preference for active and pragmatic learning and an extreme preference for reflective and theoretical learning. I agree with the results of the test since I always enjoyed participating in experiments in science lessons, and also being in a class where the teacher required students to give their opinions. Additionally, I enjoy having private studies and reflecting on what I have learned. The test results from the experiment will help me to work with others since I have learned my strengths. In particular, I will always take time to learn the theory of what we are working on before I start any task. Therefore, this results will help me to understand and explain myself better to people, especially on how I understand various concepts.
MBTI Myers Briggs Indicator
The purpose of the MBTI Myers Briggs indicator is to help an individual understand his/her personality, which can be essential in his/her career development (The Myers & Briggs Foundation, n.d). The results of the test showed that I am a logician (INTP-I). I am introverted (51%), intuitive (64%), thinker (63%), prospective (74%), and turbulent (61%). I agree with the scores of this test since I love to spend time alone as I research and think. I also change my decisions and opinions quickly depending on what I learn from my research. Therefore, I trust the research findings. These results show that I can work with other people, especially as an analyst. However, I may have challenges following protocols. Importantly, the results would help me understand myself better since they have made know my weakness and strengths.
Big 5 Personality Test
The Big 5 Personality Test measures an individual’s personality based on five dimensions, which are openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness, and neocriticism (The Big Five Personality Test, 2018). My scores were 79%, 40%, 33%, 52%, and 46% for openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness, and neocriticism respectively. My high openness score suggests that I am creative, adventurous, and intelligent, my conscientiousness score suggests I am disorganised. The extraversion score shows that I am reserved and independent. My agreeableness score is low, which suggests that I am not very empathetic. Finally, my neuroticism score was moderate, which shows that I have a typical tendency of experiencing negative emotions. I agree with the suggestions of the score since I like to spend my time alone. Additionally, I always have a problem of reading people’s emotions, and I am also not incredibly tidy. These test can help me to work with people since I have been able to know my weakness and strengths. In particular, I can practice on how to avoid unnecessary conflicts or learn how to resolve conflicts.
The Risk Attitude Profiler shows a person’s willingness to engage in a risky activity. The Risk Attitude Profiler classifies individuals into three groups: low, moderate and high. From the assessment, I am a moderate risk taker. The dimensions of my risk character are moralist, toiler, rational, energetic, ponderous, adventure, and inspired. I agree with the results of this tests since I am always cautious when taking risks, and I perform various analytical tests before making any decision. Moreover, I always have the energy and appetite of taking various risks. These results have helped me to understand myself better since I have learned my risk character. Additionally, I will know how to regulate my risk appetite so that I do not endanger my loved ones.
Type A Personality Test
The Type A Personality Test assesses an individual’s likelihood of developing heart diseases (Grossarth-Maticek & Eysenck, 2018). My score of Type A Personality is 54%, which shows that although I am empathetic and caring, at times, I become irritable and impatient. This moderate score shows that I can have the risk of getting cardiovascular diseases, such as the coronary heart disease. I agree with the test results since I become frustrated and impatient, especially when things are not working out as planned. These results are important since they will make me be more cautious and avoid a lifestyle that can result in me getting heart disease. Moreover, it will to be more considerate and learn how to be patient, which will improve my relationship when working with other people.
The Self-Monitoring Test shows how a person behaves in different social settings (Out of Service, n.d.). My score for the Self-Monitoring Test was 48, which is a low self-monitor. A person with a low self-monitor score does not change his/her behaviour to match his/her surroundings. Instead, these individuals use their beliefs and values to decide how to behave. I agree with this score because I do not change my character depending on my surrounding. I usually decide to keep quiet or to avoid much talk in an environment where I am not comfortable, and when I am with my friends, I express my true opinions. This score will help me to understand myself better and how I interact with people since I will try to always consider my environment when giving my opinions.
