This isn’t gibberish, I promise. These letters represent results from the Myers-Briggs Personality Inventory. More than a fun trivia question or icebreaker, the Myers-Briggs Personality Inventory has practical applications, just ask Director of College Placement, Ms. Harvey. “This test provides feedback on how you function, on what works for you and what doesn’t, on if your long term career ideas line up with what your personality tells you,” she said to the sophomores in their theology classes this week. The point of this test isn’t to overthink or overanalyze, it’s to find out more about what makes you… you. 

According to this inventory, there are 16 different codes and four different personality types. Are you an Analyst? Diplomat? Sentinel? Or Explorer? Ms. Harvey challenged the sophomores to dig deeper and find out who they are right now. “I hope that by becoming aware of their personality type and the characteristics of that type, our students will better be able to investigate the college and potential career field that might fit them best,” she remarks. This isn’t to say that the results define you and your potential. We grow, we learn, we experience new things. We’re not limited to these letters and types, but they do provide an interesting guide to formulating reflective questions that impact our decision making. 

“Let’s say your personality type skewed more towards the introverted side rather than the extroverted, and you crave opportunities for creative self-expression. When looking for colleges, maybe a smaller school with about 5,000 students would be a better fit than a huge university with over 60,000 students,” emphasizes Ms. Harvey. She wants test-takers to remember that we can use this test to better understand what we need to succeed. Why not use every tool available to learn more about who we are and what works for us?

Whether you want to be an engineer, a nurse practitioner, a physical therapist, or are interested in journalism like the students Ms. Harvey spoke with on Thursday, this test is here to guide you in making the best choices on how to get there. 

Sophomores, we hope you found this personality inventory useful and you take the time to answer the reflection questions Ms. Harvey sent. And to Parents, Ms. Harvey asks, “I hope  “you will ask your student what their personality type is and start a conversation on what type of career and college is best suited for them. Do you know your own personality type? Take the test and compare your results! It's a fun and educational activity.”

Important Updates

If you intend to travel over the holidays, we would respectfully request that you quarantine for a full 14 days before returning to campus. While there is no way for us to know where you have been or with whom, please help us to keep the whole community healthy. Students who intend to be on-campus may attend classes virtually until the period of quarantine is ended if it overlaps with the resumption of classes. Please report a self-quarantine or a positive COVID test to Mrs. Carrera in the Wellness Center.
 
The new CDC guidelines will recommend close contacts of those infected with the coronavirus should quarantine for 7 to 10 days after exposure, down from the 14 days currently recommended. Individuals can end their quarantine after 7 days if they receive a negative test, or 10 days without getting tested.  
 
If you are not coming to school, do not fill out the Daily Screening Form - even if attending classes online. The Daily Screening Form should be completed by students who will be physically present on campus for that day.
