The Evaluation Week in PLENK2010 is going and I remembered the opportunity to test one’s blog via Myers-Briggs Personality. It is very easy: just write the name of the blog here and you will get the answer in a second. This is technology-enhanced assessment, one of many easy ways. I am wondering why we have so negative attitude against measuring in PLENK even we have many research following happenings. All facilitators do not believe in research or what is this attitude? Research is one (important) way to reflection.
This blog typeanalyzer has scientific research beyond it – it has grounds on Myers-Briggs Personality analysis. Basic concepts are introversion and extraversion plus: sensing, feeling, thinking, intuition, judging, perception. It is interested in the stable parts of human personality: yes we have many stable answers to questions like these:
- where primarily do you prefer to direct your energy?
- How do you prefer to process information? – to make decisions?
- How do you prefer to organize your life?
We have habits, we use same mental muscles to live in this changing world. There is a short questionnaire available to answer these questions and get feedback. You can see how the typeanalyser is working, you need not trust blindly.
Something it knew about me:
If your personality type is INFP then you have some deeply-held values, though there are probably very few people, if any, who know what those values actually are. Privately, you may be a people-person, but others may not recognise it as you show your feelings in indirect, imaginative ways rather than in more conventional expressions of care. You may be looking forward to the realisation of some personal ideals.
If your personality type is INFJ then have a strong, private sense of knowledge and vision, often for hidden things that other people would think can’t be known. You see imaginative possibilities and insights, especially in relation to people, anticipating a future for them that they can’t even see themselves. Although you probably have some strong relationships, your insights may be so unusual that others find them difficult to accept, and you may therefore find it difficult to articulate them.
My blog is written by a Thinker (INTP). How about yours? Any diversity found?
This is an example of expertise knowledge meeting everyday life. I was a little arbitrary (I mean I was not quite sure) to tell about this typeanalyzer. There are problems in giving scientific knowledge to anyone, but I trust you.
