The LSI is a tool used to measure a person’s thinking style. Upon completion of the assessment, there were two thinking styles used to describe my dominant thinking. Perfectionist thinking style is my primary thinking style. Avoidance thinking style is my back up thinking style. The assessment result of perfectionist style thinking didn’t surprise me. I exhibit most of the behaviors described under this style of thinking. Repetitive, ritualistic behavior, placing excessive demands on self and others and preoccupation with details, are definitely traits I exhibit. At work I find myself constantly checking my charts and combing over information. I obsess about things even when I know they were done. For example, I will send a specimen to the lab and call then call to speak to someone to make sure they received it. Then I will keep checking to see if the lab resulted. I pride myself on being the nurse who is able to start an IV on a patient that is considered a really “hard stick.” I consider myself to be a very task oriented person. If I can’t accomplish a task it makes me insane. Sometimes it can ruin my entire day. Set backs grate on my nerves like someone constantly scratching a chalk board. The demands I make on others are no less than the demands I make on myself. I tend to set the bar high because I want to push myself and others. When I ask a patient care tech to turn a patient every two hours without fail, I expect it to be done. I don’t delegate tasks that I am unwilling to do. I also check to see if the task was done how I asked. The backup thinking style of avoidance didn’t surprise me either. I agree that I have a deep rooted fear of failure and lack self disclosure to people I don’t know. I am definitely an “avoider” in my personal life. I stay to myself mostly. My husband is a social butterfly and enjoys others company. I have a small close circle of friends that consists mostly of family. The perfectionist style thinker attaches self worth to accomplishment of tasks, has low self esteem, places excessive demands on self and others, preoccupied with details and unable to deal with or express emotion. According to the LSI, this style thinker tends to believe that unless they are “perfect,” they are nothing. The avoidance thinking style describes one that has a strong tendency to deny responsibility for one’s own behavior, feelings of guilt over real or imagined mistakes, fear of failure, a preoccupation with one’s own concerns and lacks self disclosure. The LSI states that people who score high in the perfectionist thinking style tend to score high with the avoidance thinking style also. Both styles of thinking are tied to a fear of failure. I agree that some of my thinking stems from a fear of failure. However, I don’t believe that these styles describe my thinking totally or all aspects of my behavior. Since I could remember, I’ve always been self deprecating, analytical, and critical. I don’t have an inflated sense of self. I tend to think that I have a realistic view of myself. I’m not afraid of expressing emotion and I deal with others expressing strong emotion in my line of work. Dealing with patients requires empathy and offering comfort for patients and their families. In nursing, you are taught to be a proactive critical thinker. I face problems head on and anticipate problems before they happen. I don’t avoid problems or shrink responsibility. My LSI results showed three dominant thinking styles, humanistic-encouraging, perfectionist, and avoidance style. The three dominant thinking styles can affect the way that I manage in different ways. Having a perfectionistic style of thinking can have a positive impact on planning and organizing in management. The plan would be detailed and well thought out. Also, there would be a back up plan. Organizing would go smoothly. As far as leading, I would probably micromanage a lot. Not expecting people to…
