What I Learned About Myself
By completing the assessments I learned the following about myself: I learned that I'm a introvert, which Is surprising considering I like to talk to people and I like to socialize sometimes with people that I don't know which is the opposite of what the definition of a introvert is. I also learned that I seem to be a leader considering my results. Teaching is a main interest that I had before I took all of these assessments and some of them came out that education would be something that I'd like, and it helps point me in the direction I would like to do. My future dreams and goals are reflected in some of the assessments, and it really helps me when it comes to the traits I need to have in my profession that I desire.
