For the fourth assignment, we are doing an evaluation of our skills, strengths and weaknesses.
Personality Strength Profile
The first part of this was doing a Personality Strength Profile. This determined four letters, which were E N F J – described as idealistic, organised and personable. Upon reading the strengths and weaknesses, I think this description fits me perfectly. I could blame some of these traits on being a Gemini, however, in summary, my strengths are:
- energetic and organised
And my weaknesses:
It also said, my weakness is wanting to avoid conflict. Being quite hot-headed, I have to disagree with that one.
My preferred work environment:
- social and communicative
- orderly but creative
Although I do like to spend some time alone, I do indeed like a social but productive place to work.
Belbin Team Roles Analysis
The second part of the brief was to do a Belbin Team Roles Analysis. I wasn’t expecting on doing maths this evening, as I had to split numbers amongst different options to make them sum up to 10, but I got to an answer in the end. With the results, I was supposed to have one primary and one secondary preferred team role, but my secondary answers were tied, so I have two.
Primary – Completer Finisher
+ conscientious, thorough – worry a lot
Secondary(s) – Coordinator & Resource Investigator
+ confident, leader – can be seen manipulative
+ enthusiastic, communicative – over-optimistic
Personally, I would have the coordinator as primary and completer finisher as secondary. I’m not much of a resource investigator, though…
