PERSONALITY AND SELF-CONCEPT
2
Personally, I believe that I am very patient, humble, caring, and team oriented. I am
also very responsible and thoughtful; therefore, I believe that these traits will benefit me as a
person, a student, and a professional. My strengths are particularly dominating comparing to
my weaknesses and they allow me to better handle situations and consequences as they arrive.
As a student, I believe that my strength is the fact that I am always prepared. I am not a
procrastinator, in fact, I anticipate completing all of my assignments on a weekly basis. This
helps me to become successful in whatever I do as a student and also as a professional. I also
anticipate learning about new things so that I can expand my knowledge base and offer the
knowledge that I have learnt to the people around me. This is one of my biggest strengths as a
person and as a professional. I love to help others and teach them what I know in order to help
them with what they do not know. As a manager and a leader of any group or society, my
strengths are my caring heart and my team oriented spirit. I believe that everyone on any
team, in any group, or within any workplace should work together as a team to accomplish
any given tasks and activities. This will allow the workplace or group to be successful in their
particular doings.
In the future, God’s willing; I hope to lead a group of Accountants and/or Lawyers. I
think that the strengths that I have will help me to become a great leader for this group of
people and any other group of people I wish to lead. According to my locus of control selfassessment, I believe that I am in control of my own destiny and success and therefore, I wish
to lead with this same belief. My strengths are important to help me to become the woman
who I am destined to become, as well as to help me to lead in the manner in which I hope to
lead. As a leader, it is important to teach your audience the negatives of being a procras tinator
and how it can affect them in the near future. My strengths as a leader will help me to

understand the persons who I will lead as well as to assist them in being a great leader
themselves. I hope to become the type of leader who listens and learns from the persons who I
lead and I also hope that I will value their advices and suggestions as much as they would
value mine.
Personally, I believe that the fact that I lead by being an autocratic and a perfectionist
may lead to difficulties in my future work as a leader. I love to get things done, sometimes at
a cost to myself and my team members. This will eventually lead to me and my team members
being burnout and it will also result in diminishing potential returns, since we will be unable
to work as effective as we used to. This is one of my weaknesses that I wish to improve or
change. A second area of improvement in my personality is my need to become a little more
jovial and social. Throughout my life, I have always been very anti-social, not asking for help
when I need it and not taking or engaging in conversation with my team members. I always
try to figure things out on my own so that I may seem independent and knowledgeable. This
will affect my future leadership skills because a leader should be able to communicate
effectively, in order to successfully get all their tasks accomplished. As a leader, I should be
able to teach others to lead by example, to communicate with each other and to work as a
team in whatever they are doing. Therefore, I need to improve or change all the flaws in my
attitude and personality that will hinder me from becoming the great leader I want to be.
According to the personality self-assessment, my specific personality type is ENFJ.
The accompanying traits for this personality type and the scores that I received are Extravert
(1%), iNtuitive (12%), Feeling (6%), and Judging (28%). According to this personality type
assessment, I have great interpersonal skills and I have a clear understanding of my goals and
dreams. These can be seen as strengths in my personality and with these strengths, I will be

able to effectively lead each group of people in the organization. I love to think outside the
box and expand my area of research and knowledge base and, therefore, I do believe that this
will be a great asset to any company that I manage, since I will be able to use these traits to
lead everyone according to the mission and vision of the organization. A weakness or an area
of improvement in my personality type is that I will sometimes neglect myself and my needs
for the needs of others. Even though this may seem like a good thing, that is, putting others
needs before mine and not displaying a sense of selfishness, this is actually one of my areas of
weaknesses that need to be improved. When putting others needs before your own, you are
open to the risk of being hurt or abused by less sensitive people, especially in the workplace
when others will use your weakness to their advantage. This will sometimes force me to take
on more of a person’s work than I can manage and will eventually result in the burn out of
myself. The personality trait, “feeling” can also be seen as an area that I need to improve
within myself. A feeler tends to make abrupt decisions based on their emotions instead of
making a decision based on logics. In addition, I normally make decisions based on what I
believe is right or based of my personal beliefs. Even though this can be seen as a good thing,
I hope to learn how to make decisions in a fair and impartial manner as it is laid out by the
rules of the organization. This will help me to act and lead according to the expectations of
the organization itself.
