Morrisby and Myer-Briggs
Our school thought it would be a great opportunity for us in Year 10 to take an aptitude test to help us build our ways to living our lives. It was a great opportunity to get to know myself. It showed my strengths and weaknesses and where my interests lied.
And this reminded me of another test, similar to the one I took. The Myer-Briggs personality test. I took the test a few years ago, and I was happy to see that my personality stayed relatively similar when I retook it, although there was one difference.
When I first did it, I was an ENFP. It described me perfectly -- Extroverted, Intuitive, Feeling, and Perceiving. It told me that I was a creative soul that was embarking on a journey to find my own path and story. When I took it again, I was an ENFJ -- still Extroverted, Intuitive, Feeling, but Judging. The main difference between Perceiving and Judging is the perferred lifestyle. Perceiving means that the lifestyle preference is more free and flexible, while Judging means that the lifestyle is more structured and organised.
After taking these test, I had a pretty clear idea on what I wanted to do when I grew up. There was one thing that was in common with the results of all of the tests: becoming a teacher. And I really liked that idea.
In school, my friends come for me for advice and to receive help in their works. I have been doing this for as long as I could remember, and I enjoy it so much. I want to be someone who makes a difference in people's lives, no matter how small.
I still don't know what I want to teach, but whatever I do, I'm sure I can do well if my passion lies with it.
