The Jung Typology test shows that I am an introverted, sensing, feeling, and judging
(ISFJ) person. Personality test are used by most organization to determine the type of
employees that will fit in their organization culture. On the other hand, people also take a
personality test to determine the type of career that they will choose and the manner to handle
their relationships.
The test revealed that I am a sharp and willing to learn new things, that are interlinked
with my career of choice that is nursing. In addition, I am responsible an aspect that will

ensure that as a nurse, I am able to respond to different challenges in my career. The
personality test also revealed that I am loyal this makes me a trustworthy individual at my
place of work, hence inspiring confidence among my patients and fellow colleagues at the
workplace (ISFJ Careers, 2017).
Based on the assessment, I am more connected to my feelings this makes me able to
understand my patients, friends and fellow employees. It also makes it easier for me to
sympathize and emphasize with the people around me hence building strong relationships.
Moreover, the test shows that I am not judgmental when making decision. The aspect makes
me to be perceptive in tackling challenges in my workplace and in my personal relationships
(ISFJ Careers, 2017).
The Jung Personality Test does reveal my strength and weaknesses. This gives me an
opportunity to build on my strengths while finding ways to work on my weaknesses. My first
strength is that I am loyal which means that I value the relationships that I establish and work
towards strengthening them. Secondly, I am hardworking this does mean that I am able to
complete all my tasks with no supervision. Thirdly, I am reliable this does inspire confidence
and trust among the people around me which helps me to work towards achieving my
personal and team goals.
Fourthly, I am observant this helps me to be creative in coming up with plans to help
my patients, colleagues and friends solve their problems. Lastly, I am patient an aspect that
enables me to be forgiving and caring about the people that interact with me on a daily basis.
The course module focussed on various personality test and the type of motivation
that they tend to feel fulfilled in their workplace and in their personal relationship (Vernon,
2014). The personality test revealed that I am an introverted sensing, feeling, and judging
which clearly shows that I am attracted to motivating activities that help me and those around

me. I have learnt that there are two types of motivation which are in monetary and non-
monetary form. Based on my personality, I prefer non-monetary form of motivation to
monetary motivation.
I am motivated when I am applauded for my efforts, especially when I go beyond the
set expectations in the workplace. I have volunteered in a hospital as a nurse and I discovered
that I am getting more motivated when the patients I take care of get better. Their smiles,
laughter and stories inspire me to work harder to replace the pain and hopelessness in the
patients who come into the hospital. I am also motivated when I find flexible working or
studying environment that enables me to spend my time with my family and friends. I believe
that human relationships are more important and that one must make efforts to build them.
The motivation is not limited to one particular situation as indicated in the paragraph
above. It does transcend my career choice as a nurse to my personal relationship. The
personality test coupled with the modules that I have learned to play a vital role in
influencing my communication skills. I am a pragmatic person and this does enable me to
work well in teams in the work place. My practical perspective does enhance the way I relate
with other people, hence providing with an opportunity to contribute reasonably in beneficial
discussions that will help not only me but the people around me (Lin, 2015).
Weaknesses are present in every person and the only way to become a better
individual is by working on ways that can turn them into strengths. In my case I will read
more personality books to determine ways to improve on my personality. I need to start going
to more social events and participate in meetings to help me to reduce my shyness in
speaking in crowds. Moreover, I need to find a mentor who will help me to become a better
person by transforming my weaknesses into strengths. Lastly, I need to observe how my

supervisors delegate work in order for me to reduce my perfectionism nature and delegate my
work to other people around me.


In conclusions, I have learnt that personality has an impact on my career choice,
relationships, and communication skills. From the Jung Personality Test, I have learnt that I
have intuitive, sensing feeling and judging personality. The personality has influenced my
career choice to be a nurse and has played a vital role in the relations that I have established. I
have discovered my strengths and weakness which am certain will help understand the
reasons I carry myself in a certain manner. Finally, I have been able to identify the steps that I
should employ in dealing with my weaknesses in order to become a better person.
