Leadership Building ... it's nobody .. nobody but ... YOU
You and me, we're just a creature of habits. We got our own comfortable way of doing things. However, when we work in the organization, it is good to know how to make use of our own personality (in terms of your perception and decision making) to contribute to the organizational goal. There is a tool I learned and it is called Myers Briggs Type Indicator. It tells you (not at 100%) what are the traits you (again on how you perceive your surrounding and how you make decision) have through answering few questions about yourself.
On the high level, the tool is assessing and trying to tell:
- How do you use your energy when you mingle with people around you.
- How do you process the information that comes to you.
- How do you usually make decision.
- How do you organize your life.
- E = Extraversion. or I = Introversion. (E/I)
- S = Sensing or N = Intuition (S/N)
- T = Thinking or F = Feeling. (T/F)
- J = Judging or P = Perception. (J/P)
Let me explain more about E/I, S/N, T/F and J/P.
- E/I : Tells you how do you use your energy when you face with people or simply called Attitude.
- S/N : Tells you how do you process information comes to you or simply called how's your perceiving function.
- T/F : Tells you how you usually make decisions or simply called how's your judging function.
- J/P : Tell you how you organise your life or simply called how's your lifestyle.

You can get some information about yourself through answering these questionaire.(Click at "questionaire" to proceed).
I'm placing a link for you to try here. Again, this is not an accurate representation of yourself. It is a study made base of several sampling from certain crowd of people on how they behave and how management will make use of those traits in organization.
At the end of the day, YOU are the one who dictate who you are, how you're going to be and where you're going to be.
We'll talk more about this in our next entry.
