The process of undertaking this personality
test was an easy one, but going through all the questions asked and providing
answers to them was an interesting adventure. First, the test was challenging,
as one had, to be honest to get, accurate results concerning the right
personality type. At times I was tempted to provide wrong answers to some
questions with an aim of getting a better personality type, but a desisted from
the temptations. The process of answering the questions was very interesting as
it provided an opportunity for understanding that my personality better. I was
able to think about various aspects of my life like I have ever done in the
past. Reflecting on the questions asked in the test provided a ground for
understanding the things that I like doing and those that I hate engaging
myself in life. Thus, the personality test provided an opportunity to reflect upon
my life to understand who I am really in life.
One of the advantages of MBTI
personality test is that it enable an individual to understand the type of
personality he possesses
(Nevid, 2011). As a result, a person can understand
his or her strengths and weaknesses in life. The experience I had with the test
is that it enabled me to understand the personality that I have as an
individual as well as my areas of strengths and weakness. Also, the MBTI
personality test, enable a person to understand how to work with different
people in the best way in an organization by understanding their different
personality, hence, comprehending how they behave and react in various
situations. The test also helps a person to learn how to tolerate others in
life. However, one the disadvantages of the test are that it gives different
results when one takes the test a number sometimes, hence, making it unreliable (Nevid, 2011).
On the other hand, it fails to match the result of various personality tests,
only do so in the introversion as well as extroversion areas.
The personality awareness can be
instrumental in understanding the behavior of a person in different settings.
Understanding the personality of individual aids in understanding his or her
reaction to teamwork related activities in the workplace. There are those
individuals who are less social in life and understanding their personality can
help avoiding assigning them to group work, as they will find it hard settling
down within the group as they are not good at socializing. A person who can
perform perfectly within a group setting is one who is sociable in nature.
Also, understanding the emotional stability of a person is critical in
determining the way he or she might end up reacting to different emotional
situations. For instance, if a person is emotionally unstable, exposing him or
her to situations that require emotional stability to produce the best results
will not help at all. Therefore, understanding the personality of a person
about emotional stability help to comprehend how a person is likely to react to
different situations and the best help to offer to the individual when the need

innovatively when assigned a role that requires innovative solutions. Thus,

their capabilities to perform the tasks in question in a successful way.
The concept of personality that I have learned
and experienced fits within the biblical worldview. The Bible talks about different
individuals who had different personal traits and qualities. For example,
Abraham had a different personality from that of Cain. Therefore, the lesson I
learned that people have different qualities and traits in life is also
reflected in the biblical worldview. All the characters in the bible shared
different qualities; there were those who were very sociable, such as Jesus
Christ. There were others who were very curious in knowing things related to
their respective lives, such as Samson. Thus, the personality concept from the
worldview fits effectively within the biblical context.
