OL 125: Personal Development Plan – Final Project (Milestone Four)
Student Name: Student Date: June 25, 2015
Section 1: For the past several weeks, I have learned upon taking this course to complete my educational journey, is the right path for me to take. I have also learned that I am not only an eager student, but also a dedicated worker, and if I have goals that I want to reach I have the potential to attain them.
My output for doing this plan was for me to see a journey for myself that concerns my education. I know on a personal note there are things I would like to accomplish within the next year that determine how well I am able to accomplish the goals I have set.
I want to set realistic attainable goals that I can achieve. In this particular plan I need to set certain goals to not only lead me to where I need to be, but the path I need to take to reach them. I would like to be successful in my educational journey, so this plan is extremely important to me.
The results I received from the Humanmetics Jung Typology Test assessment was ISTJ.

I have a moderate internal locus of control. I do agree that I control most of what happens to me in my life, but sometimes there are certain things in life that we have no sense of control over, and it will affect our lives either in a positive or negative light. I think for me I can control my behavior, but I can’t control the attitude or behavior of someone else because you can control a person’s own emotions or behavior.
In the burnout assessment I scored a 45 which means that I have a potential for burnout if several of my scores are high. I would have to agree because I do sometimes let certain things get to me which causes me to react in certain ways that people might not see me act. In our personal and professional lives we must develop plans that will allow us to handle certain situations, and how to achieve them.
