Abstract
According to some research, similar beliefs and ways of working usually encourage communication and tend to support the working relationship, allowing synergies to emerge. In contrast, a high level of dissimilarity usually requires a high consumption of adaptive energy. Using the International Personality Item Pool Test (IPIP-NEO) I discovered that my extraversion score was low. I have a high level of agreeableness, conscientiousness and openness. My score for neuroticism was average. Using the Prentice Hall’s Self-Assessment Online Library, I scored highest for emotional intelligence and lowest for extraversion. My Jungian 16-Type Personality, per the Typology test, was revealed to be INFP. ("Humanmetrics Jung Typology Test," The Typology test also revealed I am equally people and task oriented with scores of 9. I was also able to confirm that my identified conflict handling style was collaborating, accommodating and compromising, each with scores of 20. At a leadership level, I discovered my personality traits would be well suited for a global management position. In addition, I apply a Christian, Theistic Worldview as the framework for my management style. Keywords: Add key words here:

Self-Assessment Analysis
Step 1: What about me?
Beginning with Prentice Hall’s Self- Assessment Online Library, section 1, entitled, What about me? , I completed a battery of questions specific to identifying my personality traits and additional questions to access factors which influence decisions I make as an employee, team member and manager. On Self-Assessment 1, I scored highest on emotional intelligence, 46, and lowest for extraversion, 3. (Robbins & Judge, 2009, p. 1.E.1) “People with high emotional intelligence have the ability to accurately perceive, evaluate, express, and regulate emotions and feelings.” (Robbins & Judge, 2009, p. 1.E.1) A liability of my low extraversion score is that, “The independence and reserve of the introvert is sometimes mistaken as unfriendliness or arrogance.”(Srivastava, 2014, p. 2)
My Jungian 16-Type Personality was revealed to be an INFP.("Humanmetrics Jung Typology Test," 1998-2014, p. 1) I was also labeled with a Type B personality ("The Four Preferences," 2012, p. 1-3) In addition, a thorough reading and evaluation of the Kroeger, Thuesen and Rutledge book entitled, Type Talk at Work, affirmed my personality type as an INFP. Positive examples of my identified personality traits are “sympathetic, kind and affectionate.”(Srivastava, 2014, p. 1) A detriment of my identified personality traits are,” they are not useful in situations that require tough or absolute objective decisions.”(Srivastava, 2014, p. 3) I believe in God as the almighty Father. My theoretical framework is of the Judeo-Christian faith and a guiding principle in my life’s journey. (Fischer, 2012, pp 4)
1.2-The Letter I
According to Kroeger, Thuesen and Rutledge in, Type Talk at Work, 2002, I am an Introvert (I). I am an empathetic listener and frequently need time to “recharge”. (Kroeger, Thuesen, & Rutledge, 2002, p. 18)” In American society Introverts are outnumbered about three to one by Extraverts.”(Kroeger et al., 2002, p. 28) “I, makes for a warm and reserved gracious type who is frequently comfortable to let everyone, “live and let live.” (Kroeger et al., 2002, p. 340) I am often perceived as aloof. “The richest and most trusted parts of an Introvert’s personality are not necessarily shared with the outside world.”(Kroeger et al., 2002, p. 32)
1.3-The Letter N
I am an Intuitive (N). “About 30% of the U.S. population prefers to gather information this way”. (Krueger et al., 2002, p. 34) “Every April 15, for example, even the most iNtuitive individuals must deal with the specific hard facts and figures of income taxes.” (Kroeger et al., 2002, p. 21)I always ask the Internal Revenue Service for an…
