(Prentice Hall, 2008). In this essay, we take a closer look at some important aspects of my personality that I was not aware of. Part I: What About Me?I have taken several assessments and each one has been very similar in results. The only difference between the Prentice Hall and the Myers-Briggs is the way I gather information. According to Myers-Briggs, I gather information through Sensing, essentially using my five senses: touch, taste, see, smell and feel. (Kroeger, Thuesen,& Rutledge, 2002) The Prentice Hall Assessment reveals that I gather through iNtuition, which means I focus more so on the big picture, than the minor details.
In essence, both tests are correct. How is this? I have characteristics of both. It. .elongs the glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen”.
