Throughout the different question and answer sections for these pages I learned alot about myself on a deeper level than I at first thought I would. The spontaneous anwsering really gives you a honest and direct response.
When talking about one's emotional intelligence we mentioned that first one must know who they are in order to know and understand those around him/her. On the first inventory, my responses were energetic, friendly, responsible, open, and understanding. I feel that these characteristics are very important in the career path that I am currently leaning to which is, sales. I also learned what my most important beliefs are, God, equality, friends and family, my goals, and in love. From what we have already discussed in Fujishin's book we have learned how some groups operate on a system. In this respect, by knowing more about one's self can help that individual know where their particular role can be in that system. The last inventory that I thought was crucial was the you're not perfect. I asked my girlfriend for feedback on this one. Keep in mind is probably the most biased and the most true. The answers were patience, stubborness, eating habits, making desicions, and not backing down(which I think is stubborness again). By knowing and understanding these parts of "You're Not Perfect" is helps me put limitations on what I do now, as well as things that I can improve on for the future. When I do this it will help me become a better person, with a higher emotional intelligence and will help me gain a better understanding of myself and others. Finally I'll try to tie it all together. Just by reviewing the skills and qualifications that we looked at on the jobs we picked out many of the are vital to what I learned about myself. Because teamwork, interpersonal skills, and great communication were stressed repeatedly in each jobs listed and by analzying the results from the inventories will help me as an indiviaul see where I have meet my goals and in which areas work still needs to be done so I can achieve those goals.Posted by at September 18, 2005 11:10 PM
