Introduction
Of the many factors that contribute to a successful future, an understanding of Personality Type is among the
most useful.

While interests and skills change during the course of a person's life, the one thing that does remain constant is
an individual's Personality Type - the innate way each person naturally prefers to see the world and make
decisions. And although all individuals are unique, people of the same type share enormous similarities in the
kinds of academic subjects and careers they find interesting, and the kind of work they find satisfying.

By understanding the role Personality Type plays, people can gain important insights into their educational,
career, and relationship needs. And because people of different types often communicate in very different ways,
counselors and teachers can learn which strategies work most effectively with each individual student.

Understanding Mike
People like Mike are outgoing, responsible, and quite strong willed. He likes to be around other people and is
talkative, friendly, and confident. He prefers to be in charge of any situation, and is usually good at organizing
events and groups of people. Since he is so concerned about fairness, and has very clear opinions about what's
right and wrong, he tends to become annoyed when people make exceptions to the rules or simply ignore them
altogether. Outspoken, honest, and direct, Mike may sometimes interrupt or bluntly step on peoples' toes without
even realizing it. He is naturally quite organized and productive, makes quick decisions, and likes to finish one
project on time and neatly before starting another.

Mike is also a realistic and down to earth person. He prefers activities that are hands-on and have some practical
use. While he probably has a great memory for facts and details, he becomes bored or frustrated with too much
theory or with long discussions about things that may never happen. Mike prefers to stay busy and physically
active and may be skeptical about trying new things or changing his routine. His many friends admire his strong
work ethic and know him to be a person of his word. But in his desire to have most things settled and decided, he
may sometimes act a bit controlling or inflexible. Mike likes to know what others expect of him, and he strives to
fulfill all of his commitments precisely and completely.

Note: Based on our assessment, Mike's personality type is "ESTJ."

Mike's Strengths and Blindspots
