First… I need any signed parent letters in my box NOW! Please pull out your personality assessment printed results and your hand-written notes and have them (and only them on your desk) Along with two sheets of blank paper.
Journal topic- Write about your thoughts regarding the personality tests. What were your results? Did you agree with them? Where there any things with which you disagreed? How accurate to you think they were overall? What types of careers did they suggest for you? Are you interested in those types of future occupations? Why or why not? Are you ready to write a reflective essay all about yourself?
Attitudes (E-I) The preferences for Extraversion and Introversion are referred to as ATTITUDES. If a person centers their attitudes, behavior and actions toward other people and things = extraverted attitude If a person centers their attitudes, behavior and actions toward the internal world of ideas and reflection = introverted attitude
People with a preference for Extraversion draw energy from action: they tend to act, then reflect, then act further. Extraverts desire broad ideas and are happier when there is quick action based on those ideas. Also, an extravert's “flow of attention” is directed outward towards other people and objects. An extrovert is NOT necessarily a party animal or a show-off
Extraverts - prefer to work around others - prefer to work on several projects at a time - usually act first and then think about it - express their thoughts and emotions freely
Conversely, those whose preference is Introversion prefer to reflect, then act, then reflect again. People with Introversion preferences need time out to reflect in order to rebuild energy Introverts seek depth of ideas and are self-oriented. The Introvert's “flow of attention” is directed inward toward concepts and ideas and energy which comes from within. An introvert is NOT necessarily shy, retiring or unsociable.
Introverts prefer to work by themselves prefer to focus on one task at a time usually think first and then act keep their thoughts and emotions to themselves prefer solitude and serenity

Sensing (S) and iNtuition (N) are the information-gathering (perceiving) functions. They describe how new information is understood and interpreted.
Sensing(S) people trust information that is in the present, tangible and concrete: that is, information that can be understood by the five senses. They tend to distrust things that have not been proven. They prefer to look for details and facts.
On the other hand, iNtuitive (N) people tend to trust information that is more abstract or theoretical. They may be more interested in future possibilities. They tend to trust those flashes of insight that seem to bubble up from the unconscious mind.
Sensors • prefer to use established skills • are realistic - see things as they are • concentrate on facts and details • prefer to rely on prior observations and first-hand experience
iNtuitives become bored after mastering a skill try to see the big picture are imaginative - see things as they might be are comfortable going with flashes of inspiration

Feeling (F) people prefer to come to decisions by associating or empathizing with the situation and the people involved They like to “weigh the situation” to achieve the greatest harmony, considering the needs of the people involved.
Those with a preference for Thinking (T) prefer to decide things from a more detached standpoint, measuring the decision by what seems reasonable, logical, causal, consistent and matching a given set of rules.
Feelers - make decisions that will create the most harmony -concentrate first on the people involved in conflict situations and then on the cause of the conflict -are likely to be called sensitive and empathetic by other people
Thinkers - make decisions that are fair and objective even if it means that someone will be unhappy -concentrate first on the issues in conflict situations and then worry about the people concerned -are likely to be described as logical and analytical by other people

The Judging (J) and the Perceiving (P)shows how we relate to the outside world (Lifestyle preferences).
Simply said, Judging types prefer to have matters settled. Perceiving types prefer to keep matters open.
Judgers -believe that 7-ish means 7:00 -are comfortable with routine, and regard tried and true methods as being safe and reliable -feel better if they complete their work before relaxing
Perceivers - believe that 7-ish means 7:15 - feel uncomfortable with routine. They find it confining and feel that it prevents them from taking advantage of unexpected opportunities -can easily stop what they are doing and move on to something else

Judging 59% vs. Perceiving 41%
