Alexandra interviewed Jonathon with some basic questions about his personality and attitudes. In this paper, you will learn a little more about the comparison between both individuals. Both individuals answered the questions in order to compare and contrast their findings.
Alexandra asked: When you are learning new information about a product, do you learn better by reading the information, seeing how something works, or by performing the action to learn with your hands?
Jonathon answered: I learn well with reading but I also do well with doing something with my hands. I think I learn best by combining both learning actions. For example, today I worked on my motorcycle and the way I learned how to do the work was by going online to read about how to do the repair I had to work on. After, I went to my motorcycle and took the motorcycle apart and visualized what they were talking about while taking it apart.
Alexandra answered: I learn better with the hands on approach. I feel as though I can learn better if I am doing the same action as a teacher while they are teaching. If I read something in order to learn, I feel as though I do not get as much out of it as I do whenever I learn by performing the action myself. I believe in trial and error. I great example would be when I went to school for phlebotomy. I had to learn how exactly to place a needle in someone's arm. The best way to learn this sort of technique would be by hands on training.
Alexandra asked: When studying, do you work better when you are in a completely silent room like a library, or do you learn better with some sort of distraction like music?
Jonathon answered: I can never concentrate with distractions. The room must be silent if I really need to absorb the material.
Alexandra answered: I absolutely cannot concentrate with any sort of distraction. I am so particular about this that even if I hear a fan or some sort of ticking from a clock, I can get distracted. I get easily distracted by any sort of noise. If I am concentrating and hear a single sound, I get aggravated.
Alexandra asked: Have you ever taken the Myers Briggs test? If not, would you take the test to see your result?
Jonathon answered: No, I have not taken the test. Yes, I will take it though to see my results.
Alexandra answered: No, I did not even know about this test but I will take it.
Alexandra asked: Do you feel as if the results from the Myers Briggs test are accurate? Why or why not?
Jonathon answered: I got the results of ISTJ (Introverted, sensing, thinking, and judging). The results said that I was the “trustee”. I feel as though my results were spot on. That they reflect my personality really well. It describes my personality spot on.
Alexandra answered: I think the test is quite accurate about me. I got the results of ISFP which stands for introverted, sensing, feeling, and perceiving. I think that at my current place in life, I am very much what they described. It said that I was the “artist” and I quite believe that. I love how artists are with expressing myself and feel that I try my best to express myself in the same ways. I do believe that these sort of tests can have different results as life goes by because a persons personality can change due to their experiences they come in contact with throughout their life.
Alexandra asked: Do you think that there has
