Unit 3 Project
Part 1: (This section of the project should be 1-2 pages in length) What were the results of your MBTI assessment?
The outcome of my MBTI assessment test resulted in the qualitative analysis of my personality type to be ENFJ (extraverted, intuitive, feeling, and judging). The strength of preferences in percentage form is as follows: •89%- Very extraverted personality,
•25%- Moderately expressed intuitive personality,

On the other hand, I am one who does have to think things through, plan ahead, and am very structured (with things in order). I think that I am more a Sensing personality than a Intuitive one. I am more practical and a more hands on individual. Meaning, I often use and trust my experience before words and symbols. (Humanetrics.com, 1998-2011)
