If you let me defend my personality, I think I am an easy-going person. For example, I will never say the bad words to hurt other’s feelings, and I don’t like to argue with others. Keirsey Temperament Sorter Results indicates that my personality type is that of the Guardians. I read the description of Guardians. All Guardians share the following core characteristics: Guardians pride themselves on being dependable, helpful, and hard working. Guardians make loyal mates, responsible parents, and stabilizing leaders. Guardians tend to be dutiful, cautious, humble, and focused on credentials and traditions. Guardians are concerned citizens who trust authority, join groups, seek security, prize gratitude, and dream of meting out justice. I do have much in common with Guardians, but I am not exactly the same.
I don’t pride myself on being hard working. I am not cautious at all. On the contrary, I am a pretty careless and sloppy person. I prefer to handle everything under a relaxing atmosphere. I think a smart and successful person could handle everything easily. I am not surprised that I don’t have all the Guardians’ core characteristics, because not any existing system could divide people to the group. Humans are social animals; they share values with others. That’s why there are tons of people in this world, and sociologists could generally divide people into different major groups. However, there are no two identical people in the world. Everyone has unique experiences, dreams, habits, and personality. All of these label a person. When most of a person’s labels are similar with a group of people, we usually think this person is of this group. Actually, nobody is totally in any group. All these groups are not real; they are summarized by sociologists.
Many young people believe in constellations. They believe personality has a connection with birth date, and divide people to twelve constellations. They think Aries brings assertive “I” energy. Their persistence and impulsive temper. Taurus brings strength and the desire for solid ground form and structure. They are a little bit slow-witted, but have consistency. Gemini brings communication, intellect and speed. Their mutable motivation brings adaptability. Cancer’s have good memory. Leo brings a desire to create, innovate, and lead. Their fixed motivation adds self-reliance. Virgo works hard for stability. Diligence is Virgo’s advantage. Libra is more extroverted and active. The study would never be a problem for Scorpio. They just need more confidence. Sagittarius is a very active, extroverted sign. Capricorn is one of the hardest-working signs of the Zodiac. Patience and caution are Capricorn advantages. Aquarius has astonishing intellectual and communication skill. Pisces is extremely receptive, compassionate, and other-directed. Many people believe they conform to the signs. However, if we switch these traits, it also works. I think the star signs don’t have any influences with the date of people’s birth. They just summarize some common personalities.
According to the textbook, the relevant background factors are formed with personality, gender, age, health, attitudes, and values. Personality has a lot of connection with experiences, and growth environment. Habits, culture, and value are from learning. I don’t use words to hurt other because I was hurt by words. Teenagers are the meanest group of people in the world. They like to pitch other’s differences, and make fun of them. The bullies stand on the corridor, and judge everyone who passes by. I was laughed at due to my weight (at that time, I was about 110 pounds). I could hear their loud whispers that I am fat. Then, I tried to lose weight by dieting. However, dieting couldn’t solve my problem. When I was dieting, I didn’t eat the normal foods. I followed quick weight-loss diets from the fashion magazines. I was always starving. Every time when I wanted to eat something, I must use all my attention not to focus on my empty stomach. I couldn’t focus on studying because I used all my energies to focus on another thing. That’s only one side effect of dieting. My face would turn extremely pale. I wanted my body to be as slender as Barbie’s, but Barbie was not a real person. The biggest problem with me is I was not fat in health standards. However, I was always thinking I was fat, even I would fall in a faint because of diet, twice. Now, when I recall all my diet days, these are the silly times for me.
I know the words’ power, and the feeling of being hurt. That’s why I won’t use words to attack others. This is part of my personality that I know the reason for. I have lots of habits, some are positive, some are negative. I know all of them are from some point of my life, and make me who I am now.
