How to improve?

Mind (Extraverted)

The MBIT test results suggested an extraverted nature for my personality. The percentage of my extraversion was as high as 72%. This indicates the manner in which an individual interacts in the environment (Furnham, 2017). Extraverted individuals have the following characteristics:

· Warmhearted

· Conscientious

· Cooperative

· Courage ( Hu, J., & Judge, 2017)

This indicates that I am very much adaptive with my surrounding environment and I have extrinsic feelings rather than feeling intrinsic. I never feel hesitant while interacting with others and I can easily initiate conversations.

I need to be a good listener and allow my team members to contribute their ideas. I need to provide chances to the others so that they can come up with their own ideas and thought, which might prove to be helpful in the growth and development of the organization.

I would arrange for sessions with my team members and carefully listen to their ideas, suggestions and grievances. I would also accept the suggestions and grievances of the employees in order to save the time of conducting sessions and take appropriate actions.

Energy (Observant)

I am 72% observant, which indicates my mental energy. Observant leaders are more quick and detailed (Warrick, 2017). Observant leaders are very quick to notice and pay attention towards the details. I observe my surroundings and the people in my surroundings in order to derive conclusions. I prefer working with harmony in my environment and work with determination in order to establish it. This allows me to deal with appropriate facts and emphasize more upon a particular task rather on multiple tasks.

I need to further improve my observant nature so that I can analyze my surrounding environment and people more effectively, which shall help me in improving the overall organizational productivity. I shall take measure to increase my focus and concentration.

For improving my observation power, I shall avoid all sorts of distractions and listen to others. I would also practice yoga in order to improve my concentration power. I would try to observe the mood of the people around me so that I can understand what’s not being said. I would pay additional attention to body language of the people around me in order to observe the facts.

Tactics (Judging)

My approach towards work, planning and decision- making is more judging than prospecting.  Tactics determines the attitude of an individual towards certainty of life (Jaques, 2017). This makes me keep my options closed. Due to this trait I am always ready with contingency plans. I also prefer emphasizing upon a single plan and maintaining a proper checklist, which indicates the task done and the tasks left to be done. The high percentage of my judging trait, I have strong ethics and lay emphasis upon my duties.

I need to refrain from developing my own preferences and improve my flexibility while dealing with both expected and unexpected challenges.

I shall provide appropriate structure for the employees who shall require it. I shall provide more space to the employees so that they can complete their tasks in their own time frame. I would take suggestions from my colleagues and subordinates in order to increase the authenticity of my decision. I would be more flexible with my plans and I shall also try to be more open to new information.

Identity (Assertive)

I have more assertive identity than turbulent. Identity indicates how much a person is confident with his or her abilities and decisions
(Monteiro, V. M., & Lopes, 2014). Due to this trait, I am not very self- conscious or sensitive to stress. I have proper control over my emotions and never allow my emotions to hamper my ability of making decisions. I am able to stand up for my own rights as well as for the rights of others in a peaceful manner. I prefer handling pressure without being aggressive.  Assertiveness is essential for successfully leading teams.  

I shall have to further improve my communication skills and persuading power in order to influence others in a better manner.

I would aim at establishing good relationships with others so that they can freely share their views. I would ensure that I am assertive but in an emphatic way so that I can better relate with my surrounding environment and people. I would be more honest and I will set my limits appropriately.  

Nature (Feeling)

There is a higher percentage of feeling in my nature. Usually leaders who take into consideration their feelings while taking any decisions think what others need in their day-by-day lives and try to provide it (Li, Mobley & Kelly, 2013). This indicates that my feelings have a high level of influencing power over my decision- making ability. The traits such as caring, helpfulness and conservativeness guide my decision- making ability. I tend to prioritize the feelings of the people around me and my own feelings before I take any decision. However, I am always cautious regarding the impact of my decisions upon the others. This prevents me from looking at the practical side of the situation and hampers my thought process. The excessive influence of my feelings on my decision- making ability often negatively affects my ability to judge people and situations.   

I shall have to adapt a more practical approach while taking decisions and reduce the ability of my feelings to guide my decisions. This shall require me to look at the practical aspects and evaluating the situations and people on the basis of practical facts.

I shall attempt to become a thinker. Thinkers usually find logic in the situations and take decisions accordingly. I would focus more upon tangible things and truth than on my own feelings. This shall enable me to make better decisions that shall help in improving the efficiency of the entire organization. I will be more brief and concise. I will adapt a more logical approach and be calm and reasonable.
