Initial Post: Your initial post should be at minimum 250 words.   Your initial post should be up by Thursday.    In your post accomplish the following:  Briefly state whether you think the results of your personality assessment were highly accurate, accurate, minimally accurate, or missed the mark.   Explain why you think that is.  You want to frame your response in terms of the content within Chapter 19.   In brief, the discussion focuses on categories and members of categories.   Note how the questions in the Getting Started Assignment are categories and the personality traits are categories as well.  What you don’t know is how those categories overlap.

For example, suppose you said you would feed the rabbit (this is the category of all who would feed a rabbit) and your personality test said you were willing to meet new people.  If you thought it was accurate explain why you think that is (and if inaccurate, explain why you think that is).

I believe the personality assessment was minimally accurate for several reasons. First, the assessment stated that I “delve into new areas and often quickly become bored and move on, leaving unfinished projects in their wake”, which is highly inaccurate. I am unsure of what category this assessment evaluation corresponds to in the getting started assignment. However, one of my biggest pet peeves is unfinished work or projects. Whether it be around the house or at work, I always finish whatever projects I start. On the contrary, the assessment did correctly state that I “function well under people, however, as long as you also have some authority too” which is indeed correct. I believe this particular affirmative statement can be applied to my career of being a nurse. Working as a nurse, I of course have to work under several people including those that make State regulations, core measures, and hospital policies, however it is up to my discretion and nursing judgement as to how or what order certain tasks are performed, depending on the individualized care I give to my patients. Thus, this allows me to have some authority from advocating for my patients. If I believe that my patient would benefit more from taking the morning off from physical therapy because they just had a complicated procedure that morning, then I have the authority to tell the physical therapist to come back this evening instead, rather than working with my patient right now. I believe all nurses could be categorized as needing some authority in the workplace. With this idea in mind, it could be said that nurses could be placed into the universal affirmative category from page 389 in the textbook, “these are universal because the subject term deals with all members of its class” (389), when making statements such as “all nurses require some authority in the workplace”.

As a whole, I would say that the results of this personality test for me falls somewhere between accurate and highly accurate because there are times when the situation, rather than our personalities, determines what actions we would take. The first part of the results of my personality test states “You are a force to be reckoned with” and I would tend to agree most of the time, but this statement is not universal affirmative because there are times I am not good at something and would not be considered a force to be reckoned with, such as math and computers. In other words, it would be more accurate if it were phrased as a particular affirmative like this: “you are sometimes a force to be reckoned with” because it represents situations in which I would be a force to be reckoned with, such as football or weight-lifting.

Another statement in my results says “you are forthcoming and direct.” I would agree that most of the time this description is accurate, but the key term there is ‘most of the time.’ This is universal affirmative that should be changed into a particular negative such as “sometimes you are not direct or forthcoming” because it is true, when for example if my girlfriend were to ask me if the dress she was wearing made her look fat, my response would always be ‘no.’ Sometimes I will lie, or not be direct, so I don’t hurt a person’s feelings.

The next part of my results says “you are curious and always delving into new ideas, but often become quickly bored and leave projects unfinished” and “if you find an area in which you are interested for a long period, you can become quite accomplished.” This, I believe, is an accurate description of myself. The first part of the statement is universal affirmative because it would be like saying “I am always curious and always delving into new ideas” and is accurate to an extent. Again, there are times in which I would find it best to just mind my business or I am uninterested in a new idea such as social media. The second part of that statement: “often become quickly bored and leave projects unfinished” is accurate in that it is a particular affirmative because it uses the word often, which recognizes the situations that I would not leave projects unfinished when I am bored with them.

Lastly, the results say “In the workplace, you do well if you find jobs in which you can work on your own terms.” This is accurate also, in that it is a universal affirmative that is actually true. There are no jobs I would find interesting if I had no authority of my own. This is supported by the next universal affirmative statement of my results: “You can function well under people, however, as long as you also have some authority too.”

I would say that the accurateness of the results of my personality assessment for the most part was highly accurate. I would say this because most of the accusations in my results did describe my personality correctly. In one part of the assessment, it was asked what I would choose to do if I encountered a rabbit; my answer was that I would take a picture of it. This particular answer falls into the category of all who would take a picture of a rabbit, making it a universal affirmative categorie. I would furthermore believe that this category overlaps with the results saying that I am a “curious and an individual always delving into new areas, but often quickly becoming bored and moving on, leaving unfinished projects in their wake.” I would say that this somewhat accurately depicts my personality. For example, there are projects that I take up in my life that I want to know more about, and then start to dive deeper into them. After a while, I may become unsatisfied with how things are going and never really finish them, for more than one reason. Those reasons being, much like what the results say, I become bored or find something else hat peaks my interest more than the project that I am currently working on, ultimately taking me away from that project and never returning. I feel as if these two categories, taking a picture of the rabbit along with curiosity and with becoming bored and moving on rather fast, go hand in hand. This is because, even though this rabbit is cute and we instantly become interested in it, we take a picture of the rabbit so we are able to move on, because looking at said rabbit all day will become boring rather fast and there are other things in the woods that are much more interesting.

A second part of my assessment results states that I am a forthcoming and direct type of person. When taking into consideration as to where the overlap falls between the results and the questions asked, I believe it this characteristic overlaps with my favorite number. I say this because, my favorite number is 22. I say this because out of an infinite amount of numbers to choose from, the number 22 is a pretty specific number and can be considered rather direct. In addition, this number has been my favorite for quite some time and whenever this question is asked of me I already have a planned answer. With this, the quality of forthcoming comes into play. This quality also describes me rather well, as for I always make myself available when people need me. In relation to the context from the provided text, the category of a specific favorite number and the characteristic of forthcomingness falls into the category of all who’s favorite numbers are very specific, again making this a universal affirmative category.

I thought the results for my personality assessment were accurate and don’t disagree with any of the findings reported.  I thought the only personality trait offered that was a little off was described as, “You are forthcoming and direct.”  I believe this true but there are also instances where I tend to skirt around issues and don’t say exactly what I mean.

My favorite color is blue and favorite season is the fall.  I think these form a subcategory of their own that points to a cliché about introverts and deep thinkers related to the combination of blue as a favorite color coupled with the fall as a favorite season.  Fall is a season of change.  I think these factor in to the category of curious people who become easily bored and move on leaving unfinished projects in their wake.  That is fairly accurate. I think that questions 4 and 5 on the survey mold into a category of people.  For question number 5, I answered that I thought college was harder than high school.  I was tempted to pick another answer as I was admitting to something that could be perceived as negative.  I answered that I didn’t have a favorite number and preferred the number 7.  This provided a subset to this question of “people not having a favorite who prefer the number 7” compared to “people who do have a favorite number and it’s the number 7” or any other answer.  Both of these answers, if true, point to a degree of honesty and accuracy.  I believe these translate to the category of forthcoming and direct people as opposed to people who are not forthcoming and direct.  It could also point to “Your personality is a force to be reckoned with” as it seems I sometimes have to reckon with it myself by saying things that people don’t necessarily want to hear.

The combination of blue, fall season, college is hard, and not having a favorite number but prefer 7 correspond to the personality trait of people with personalities that are a force to be reckoned with. The trait predicted from my survey which stated, “You don't generally have hidden agendas or ulterior motives” looks to be a particular proposition.  As far as Venn Diagrams are concerned, this would note an “X” on a line between two categories probably separating people who have ulterior motives from people who don’t have ulterior motives in the honest section.

I do get bored fairly quickly; when I was younger I jumped from job to job in totally different areas.  From the perspective of Venn Diagrams, this could be drawn from the intersection of three circles of favorite restaurant (Japanese), season (Fall), and college compared to high school (hard).  Hence, it seems logical that getting bored quickly is associated to liking change and jumping from subject to subject.

After reading the results of my personality assessment, I would say that the results were accurate, but not quite highly accurate.  One of the results that came back said that I am highly curious and always delving into new areas.  I would say that is somewhat true.  I don't always try to find new things that entertain me, but when I do find something I go all in on It.  Another thing that I think is semi-true is how It stated that I can work well under the direction of others, but need my own authority as well. I have played team sports my whole life, so I am always used to take orders from authority figures.  But what was wrong was that I don't always need to have some authority of my own.

In the Getting Started Assignment, I believe that the question relating to what I would do with the rabbit overlaps with the result from the assessment claiming, "You are curious and an individual always delving into new areas, but often quickly becoming bored and moving on, leaving unfinished projects in their wake."  I think these two overlap because I said I would do nothing with the rabbit and would just ignore it.  I think that by leaving the rabbit alone and ignoring,the results are saying that I am an individual who gets bored quickly and moves onto a new endeavor.  I don't necessarily believe this is true.  Sometimes if I find something boring, I'll try to stick with it for a long as I can handle.

The results from the personality test I believe are very accurate I believe, not everything is exact but very close. I am a very curious individual as I love to know things and sometimes can even be a little nosey. Granted this is something I have worked on and now am able to keep to myself. Curiosity can be a good thing as well because I am willing to try new things willingly. My curiosity can lead to what is said next in my personality test, which is I can get bored quickly and want to find something else. This goes for many people nowadays as we all have to have the next best thing, which nobody can be faulted for. I partially don't agree that I don't have ulterior motive. I personally have some hidden motives to continue doing the things I enjoy. Mostly I am an open book but everyone has their little secrets and reasons they do things. Another thing I don't agree with is the idea that I may leave projects unfinished. The way I was brought up I was taught to be loyal and stay the course no matter how hard it may be as it will soon pan out. It states that if I find a career path that I am interested in that I will be successful and enjoy my time doing whatever it may be. Out of everything listed in the assessment this is the truest thing stated. I only enjoy a few things in life: sports, music, and being around people. All three of these things will be in my future as I enjoy them to much to give up. Making someones day whether it is through music or sports is something I look forward too. I am able to control my own destiny with these, as I can only go as far as I am willing to take it. All in all I believe that this assessment was very accurate and interesting.
