My highlights and comments

"Personality Assessment

INSTRUCTIONS: Every person is unique because of the personality they have. This assessment can help guide you in the process of identifying your personality. Read each of the following sets of responses to the numbered statements. Circle the one that most often describes you. When more than one applies, circle the one that would best describe you in your home, church, school, or work environment.

IMPORTANT: When reading each statement and choosing only the answer that best describes you, complete each statement from the viewpoint of one of the three following environments:

  • Relationships
  • Ministry
  • Vocation
Answer ALL the questions based on only ONE of these three environments. You may portray or come across differently in each of the environments.

"C Personality (Melancholy)
Primarily passive, C's would rather be followers, not leaders." (Appendix A)

I prefer to be an employee instead of a business owner. I prefer to work writing code instead of managing people. That is because I have the C Personality and I rather be follower, not leader.
