Project #48497 - Career Paper

 

Assignment:
The Career Research Paper is a culmination and analysis of all the self-assessments and career research you’ve completed. The Assessment Integration and Career Research Worksheets should have captured much of the information necessary to complete this final project.

Choose three occupations that you are interested in at this time. These choices do not have to be your final career selections. If you have narrowed your career selection to less than three, please still review an additional two potential/back-up options. Describe each occupation and how they match (or don’t match) your personality, interests, skills, and values. Your paper must cover the following:

My MBTI Personality theme code (job preference related)

 

ISFJ

 

I: Introversion

 

S: Sensing

 

F: Feeling

 

J: Judging

 

  • I – Introversion preferred to extraversion: ISFJs tend to be quiet and reserved. They generally prefer interacting with a few close friends rather than a wide circle of acquaintances, and they expend energy in social situations.
  • S – Sensing preferred to intuition: ISFJs tend to be more concrete than abstract. They focus their attention on the details rather than the big picture, and on immediate realities rather than future possibilities.
  • F – Feeling preferred to thinking: ISFJs tend to value personal considerations above objective criteria. When making decisions, they often give more weight to social implications than to logic.
  • J – Judgment preferred to perception: ISFJs tend to plan their activities and make decisions early. They derive a sense of control through predictability

 

 

 

 

 

My Values : 

 

1.      Recognition   

 

2.      Love
