1. Of the five personality traits, I scored high on three of them and average on the other two. I scored high on extraversion and I would agree with the results. I find myself bored when there is no one around to talk to. I love being around my friends and also meeting new people. I agree with my high score on factor two as well. Sometimes I find myself questioning if I am too nice. I tend to trust people very easily. Factor three’s results can be confirmed using school as an example. If I have an assignment due I make plans to get it done. It is rare that I would not follow through with the plan and not have the task completed. I believe it is fitting that I scored an average on personality trait number four. Unfortunately, I do get stressed out about certain things; however, I try not to let it affect me much. I cannot disagree with the last personality trait score either. I feel as if I have a good mix of interests in both learning and in nature.
2. I believe that my high score of 35 on the extraversion personality trait highlights a strength of my leadership skills. I enjoy being social and interacting with people whether I know them or am meeting them for the first time. A great leader has to be able to socialize in situations where it’s necessary. Having an average score for neuroticism highlights a personality weakness for me. If I am stressed out I might not be at my best for having to lead.
3. My ideal leadership position is being captain on a basketball team. Agreeableness plays a huge role in this situation. I am able to communicate exceptionally well with my teammates. I believe in encouraging the confidence of each player because it makes everyone step their game up to the next level. Sometimes I have to make sure I don’t get too upset when things aren’t going our team’s way.
