Who Am I?
In this assignment, we visited a few websites to determine our personalities, including 16 Personalities and Keirsey. My personality type was the Logistician (ISTG). Here is a summary of the Logistician personality type.
The Logistician (ISTJ) type is someone who has integrity, practical logic, and is dedicated. They are a vital core to many families, as they are always organized, and always upholds rules and traditions. When things go awry, they will always enjoy taking responsibility for their actions, and take pride in the work that they do. In addition, they will always complete tasks diligently and patiently, resulting in excellent results. People with the Logistician type will never make assumptions or use their emotions to make decisions. They will always use past experiences and facts to make their logical decisions. Once a decision has been reached, they will pass on the facts to peers to show logical reasoning, and careful thought. Logisitians cannot tolerate those that are indecisive, and lose patience to those that don’t take immediate action.
Logisticians are focused on building long-term and stable careers.There are many common jobs among Logisticians, but most revolve around institutions of respected tradition, authority, security, and established consistency. Some of these careers include lawyers, judges, police officers, detectives, or many other jobs that require accuracy, patience, and strictness. However, there are also many more jobs that benefit from a Logistician. Logisticians are utilized for their reliability, sharp eyes, and objectivity. In jobs where facts are nonexistent, such as doctors, accountants, and auditors, people who are the Logistician type can be used to identify and correct the errors efficiently and precisely.
People who are of the Logistician type love responsibility. They will tie up loose ends, and finish unpopular projects effectively, making them the best candidate for these tasks. However, the seriousness of their approach to work makes them extremely sensitive to criticism of any type, leading to them being stubborn. In addition, they are almost always one of the most productive in the workplace. They will always respect authority, and have no trouble following instructions and orders, leading to punctuality and haste. Their time is never gone to waste, and they will always be at 100% productivity. However, Logisticians are introverted. They prefer to complete tasks by themselves or in a small team, rather than as a large group. They dislike large events, and group activities. Logisticians will rarely brag, and prefer to successes and failures to themselves.
I think the description of my personality (Logisitian) is extremely accurate. I prefer working in small groups, or individually, and strongly dislike group activities, and presentations. In addition, I love to finish tasks early and accurately, and will never procrastinate. I will always be the one making sure a project is completed, and tying up loose ends and unfinished parts in the process. In addition, I think that I am somewhat sensitive to criticism, which has both its advantages and disadvantages. Lastly, I will follow the instructions carefully, leading to a great end result. In conclusion, I believe that the results are extremely accurate compared to my actual personality.
