What’s Your Personality Type?

What’s Your Personality Type? | Sizzlin' News | Scoop.it
Personalities... everyone has one - It's what makes us unique. What's your personality type though? Well, there's Type A, Type B, and Type AB.
Sharla Shults's insight:

Type A personality generally refers to hard workers who are often preoccupied with schedules and the speed of their performance. Type B personalities may be more creative, imaginative, and philosophical. The test consists of 30 multiple-choice items. Scores range from 35 to 380. Type A is associated with a high score while Type B is associated with a low score.

 

Test your personality type!

Education Reform Starts With Community Reform

Education Reform Starts With Community Reform | Sizzlin' News | Scoop.it

We have an opportunity to pass a test that has challenged our nation for decades—to create schools that authentically represent the public and compel us to learn together. But we will miss this opportunity if we continue to focus on achievement tests. We must ask, are achievement tests a worthy measure of our ultimate goals?Education Reform Starts With Community Reform

Sharla Shults's insight:

"We must be mindful when we are testing things we already know to be true. We know that all kids can learn. We also know that adults of all varieties can teach and lead. Yet we over-test because we have lost faith in both children and adults. You will hear the phrase "adult issues" spit about like bad okra."

Assessments for an Academic Growth Purpose - Not Punitive Measures, or Teaching to the Test | Books That Sow

Assessments for an Academic Growth Purpose - Not Punitive Measures, or Teaching to the Test | Books That Sow | Sizzlin' News | Scoop.it
Are teachers teaching to the test and afterwards using results for punitive measures? I hope not. Test results should be used to move students forward.

Teaching to the test? BAD idea!

Does it pay to know your type?

Does it pay to know your type? | Sizzlin' News | Scoop.it

In this infographic, you'll get an overview of the 16 types to give a sense of how these bigger-than-life personalities fit in the Myers-Briggs philosophy. The official test is based on Carl Jung’s work in psychological typology.

Sharla Shults's insight:

Does it pay to know your type? Some say, yes; others say, no. Lot of study and information on personality traits/types. Do they have merit? What do you think?

Interesting infographic on MB types from the Washingtop Post

Deanya Lattimore Schempp's curator insight, April 28, 2013 9:14 AM

Well, the first claim that the unknown writer makes (no by-line attributed), that universities spend "millions of dollars" each year giving this personality test to their students, is just buncomb: a succinct fairly accurate version of Myers-Briggs is online for free, and that's what we ask students to take.  No one pays for the personality indicator except by means of time to take it and internet connectivity.

 

We then ask the students to write reflections of whether this type suits them or not, and what that means in terms of their study habits and needs. So students are not asked to conform to their types, as this article wants its readers to do; they are asked instead to analyze their typology for accuracy and helpfulness in understanding themselves and their type's relationship to their areas of study.

 

As for the "infographic," I've worked with students to analyze, as a survey, the questions and results of Myers-Briggs in argument classes before, and there's no doubt that the questions asked lead to the answers given.  So it's kind of bizzare that someone *ascribed* types to historical figures who never took the test (or if they did, never made their types known) and then show these figures as "typical" of the types.

 

I personally come up with two of my letters always changing back and forth (INTJ?  ENTP? INTP?  ENTJ?).

 

This "article" is misleading and silly.  In fact, I'll bet that many of these people actually did take the Myers-Briggs: the test was invented back in the '20s and '30s by a mother and daughter who wanted the daughter to marry, knowing what the man was really like.  Actually published in 1943, it was a standard psychological tool for many years; anyone who had psycological counseling in the '60s and '70s probably took it. 

 

So these unnamed writers of this article might do well to search archives and see if any of their reported personalities ever actually took the test.

 

But wait -- that would be real journalism.

Sorry.
