Self-Assessment and Reflection Paper John Elias Com 515 15 November 2003 Abstract The purpose of this paper is to discus my personal learning style to assess my strengths and opportunities for growth; this self-assessment will also help me improve my weaknesses. Along with the Meyers-Briggs Study, the DVC Learning Styles Survey was useful as a tool that assessed my learning style. As this type, the ISFJ, I possess cautiousness, gentleness and thoughtfulness; I am very stable, literal and organized. My weaknesses in short is thinking and acting with my head and not my heart. This learning style is conducive to a team approach. Finally I develop a self-managerial strategic improvement plan. Personality Type Upon completing the Myers-Briggs Personality test it became apparent that I am an "ISFJ", introvert, sensing, feeling and judging person.

Then, (as a current strategic goal), I should complete this course with an exceptional grade and later obtain my MBA (future strategic goal). After this, I need to maintain all that I wish to achieve. Finally, I should consider careful revision of goals after a certain period of time elapses. Conclusion After careful consideration, I could only come up with one sane conclusion. This test attempts to pigeon-hole people into thinking that they are something that they may not always be. I feel that my learning type is much more diverse and complicated than what was stated in the text. The world is not always black and white; I'd like to believe that the world and its people create shades of gray. From the home-front to the office, people wear different hats- my adaptability is dependent on my surroundings. In sum, due to my argumentative nature, the textbook definition, of who I am, only applied to one aspect of me - "Judging" John Elias. Reflection Paper 1 ...read more.
