P10 Reflective Entry

Another week gone by and the time for another reflective entry has come.

I have just completed a half module assesment with a gruelling few days in the learning Grid and library. During that time a lot of the people I talked to whom I also knew i noticed a change in. I noticed that wheh they were focused on that goal of finishing their project I noticed that they became more introvertive.

Thats not me bmaking things up. I'm actually genuinely truthful about this. I believe that sometimes intense periods of focus can cause people to radically alter themselves; it varies with each person. Through this experience I've both learnt how to categorise people and also the shifting dynamics of this topic.

As for a particular one of my friends (who has done the Portfolio Award) I talked to him on the topic and we had some intense discussion which was unfortunately interupted. However, I noticed that he also was of the mind that your personality is ever shifting and through that we came to know even more about each other than we previously did. He told me a few things (which I'm not going to mention because I have great respect for him) that I didnt know. THis was someone I considered my inner circle.

Its interesting to see how different MBTI types interact and the means in which they interact. I look forward to my final entry to conclude all these thoughts and experiences.

    Hello Harun

    I can see that you are quite committed to the notion that personality is fluid and shifts over time. I think there is some truth in this, but in MBTI terms there is very strong evidence to show that preferences are innate; as we mature we are better equipped to draw on other preferences and know how to adapt in new/unusual situations – this can often lead people to draw that conclusion that type itself is changeable. The circumstances/state of mind that you are in, can often influence your behaviour and you may act in ways that seem out of character. If you are seeking to ascertain type when ill/stressed etc your profile may not be a true reflection of self.

    Have you taken any online versions of MBTi and, if so, what were the results? Are you still ambivalent about your type? It will be interesting to read your conclusions in your final entry…
