I am very outgoing, committed, action-oriented, and organized, among many other things. Sadly not all of my traits are considered positive; I can be considered high strung, stress driven, controlling, and having a strong desire to always need to impress. All of my positives are very helpful in anything that involves people, especially planning and organizing events which is something I have done many times in high school and also college. With all Of these traits in mind, I agree with the psychodrama perspective, which is a personality that is primarily unconscious (King, 2013, peg. 62), believe that our characteristics are created by our reaction to society and then certain traits stick and come a part of us without even realizing it. One trait that significantly gained awareness to and utilized to my full advantage in my senior year of high school and still use is being action-oriented. I made connections to people easily and in team-based situations was the one that made sure people stayed focused, while still making sure that everyone felt their opinions were still being heard.
I often just assumed responsibility, and made sure all issues came to closure in a positive way, this was something that I believe that I just grew up learning and knowing because I am the oldest of even children. The person I am today was built through the experiences I have lived through and the people have great respect for. I lived in Joplin from the age of three up to the summer before my sophomore year in high school, then moved to Jefferson City and stayed there until graduated.
For a lot of my middle school and junior high I envied the leaders and admired what they did, but never got involved. Grew up very conflicted with my self-worth and never thought I was good enough to be a leader. When moved to Jefferson City did not know anybody and I looked at it as a new start, a place o recreate myself. So got involved with Student Council and journalism and from there rebuilt myself. Being the “newbie” from a town that had just endured an FSP tornado just a couple month prior, people took great interest in finding out who was, so meeting people was not difficult.
I became very involved within the organizations and the school in general and became someone that I had always dreamt of. Strongly relate to Mason’s approach, “self-actualization is the motivation to develop one’s full potential as a human being’ (King, 2013, peg. 370). I strive to focus on being the best example I can e and somebody that takes everything as a learning experience. While a lot is experience based also have gained traits from my family. Looking at the characteristics that I inherited from my parents, I would say that I have taken something from both of them.
I have my father’s determination and stubbornness, and my mother’s passion and organization skills. From there believe that I have gained from society. According to the Joe Butt’s personality test am an NEFF. The letters stand for extroverted, intuitive, feeling, and judging. With extroverted feeling I have a wide range of friends, but my “face- o-face relationships are intense, personable and warm” (Butt). Sadly, I infrequently gain close, intimate friendships. Having introverted intuition I tend to find the silver lining in situations.
I agree with the test when it states easily win friends and or influence people; whether I was young and insecure or mature and outgoing, I have noticed that am able to create a comfort for others when they communicate with me. Another positive skill, I am able to move from one task to another with the mindset that I can always get better allowing me to take experience away from everything I do so I am able to ark on my weaknesses and utilize my strengths. The next characteristic is the ability to manage details and be meticulous in my information.
I take great joy from breaking things down and creating detailed lists. Lastly, when making a decision Or making a judgment, my feelings become the first filter. I can make unbiased decisions if required but on a normal bases my feelings can cloud my judgment. At the end of Butt’s personality test it lists ‘famous Neff’s”, among the names a few stood out for me: former president, Abraham Lincoln, King David from the Bible, and former president of United Way, William Ramona. Each of these men were considered honorable leaders with a heart for others; this is the type of person I strive to be every day.
These men each made a huge, positive impact on others, and still always looked back on their decisions and though of ways to improve. In this paper I explained my characteristics, discussed where they came from, and my thoughts towards the personality test. My personality is what makes me who I am. Society has made me who I am today. A person’s personality is like a bar code, no matter how similar two people may seem there is something in here personality that will always make them special and unique.

Com/tests NEFF Description by Joe Butt Procrastination Test (2013). Neff’s are the benevolent ‘pedagogues’ of humanity. They have tremendous charisma by which many are drawn into their nurturing tutelage and/or grand schemes. Many Neff’s have tremendous power to manipulate others tit their phenomenal interpersonal skills and unique salesmanship.
But it’s usually not meant as manipulation Neff’s generally believe in their dreams, and see themselves as helpers and enablers, which they usually are. Neff’s are global learners. They see the big picture. The NEFF-As focus is expansive. Some can juggle an amazing number of responsibilities or projects simultaneously. Many Neff’s have tremendous entrepreneurial ability. Neff’s are, by definition, As, with whom we associate organization and decisiveness. But they don’t resemble the Sis or even the Nuts in organization of the environment nor occasional recalcitrance.
Neff’s are organized in the arena of interpersonal affairs. Their offices may or may not be cluttered, but their conclusions (reached through feelings) about people and motives are drawn much more quickly and are more resilient than those of their NFG counterparts. Neff’s know and appreciate people. Like most NFG, (and Feelers in general), they are apt to neglect themselves and their own needs for the needs of others. They have thinner psychological boundaries than most, and are at risk for being hurt or even abused by less sensitive people.
Neff’s often take on more of the burdens of others than they can bear. TRADEMARK: “The first shall be last” This refers to the open-door policy of Neff’s. One NEFF colleague always welcomes me into his office regardless of his own circumstances. If another person comes to the door, he allows them to interrupt our conversation with their need. While discussing that need, the phone rings and he stops to answer it. Others drop in with a ‘quick question. ‘ I finally get up, go to my office and use the call waiting feature on the telephone. When he hangs up, I have his undivided attention!
NEFF stands for Extrovert, intuitive, Feeling, Judging and represents individual’s preferences in four dimensions characteristic personality type, according to Junk’s and Briggs Myers’ theories of personality type. ) Your Type Preferences Extrovert(56%) Functional Analysis Of The NEFF Based on Junk’s framework of mental functions – by Joe Butt Extroverted Feeling Extroverted Feeling rules the Neff’s psyche. In the sway of this rational function, these folks are predisposed to closure in matters pertaining to people, and especially on behalf of their beloved. As extravert’s, their contacts are wide ranging.
Face-to-face relationships are intense, personable and warm, though they may be so infrequently achieved that intimate friendships are rare. Introverted intuition Like their INFO cousins, Neff’s are blessed through introverted intuition with clarity of perception in the inner, unconscious world. Dominant Feeling prefers to find the silver lining in even the most beggarly perceptions of those in their expanding circle of friends and, of course, in themselves. In less balanced individuals, such mitigation of the unseemly eventually undermines he Neff’s integrity and frequently their good name.
In healthier individuals, deft use of this awareness of the inner needs and desires of others enables this astute type to win friends, influence people, and avoid compromising entanglements. The dynamic nature of their intuition moves NEFF-As from one project to another with the assurance that the next one will be perfect, or much more nearly so than the last. Neff’s are continually looking for newer and better solutions to benefit their extensive family, staff, or organization. Extroverted Sensing Sensing is extroverted.
Neff’s can manage details, particularly those necessary to implement the prevailing vision. These data have, however, a magical flexible quality. Something to be bought can be had for a song: the same something is invaluable when it’s time to sell. (We are not certain, but we suspect that such is the influence of the primary function. ) This wavering of sensory perception is made possible by the weaker and less mature status with which the tertiary is endowed. Introverted Thinking Introverted Thinking is least apparent and most enigmatic in this type. In fact, it often appears only when summoned by Feeling.
