Life Styles Inventory Evaluation Sue Fernandez GM591 Professor: Marco Faggione May 13, 2012 Personal Thinking Styles My results from the LSI test shows my primary thinking style is affiliative and my backup is conventional. I believe these personal styles are an accurate fit of my personality. Since affiliative means being cooperative, friendly, and has a genuine concern for others and conventional describes someone who values policies and practices, it fits my personal and work life. While I was college I worked for an optometrist selling eye ware to patients. I realized then that I loved helping people and trying to meet their needs was a challenge that enticed me.
I chose to be a Medial Assistant for many different reasons. The first reason that comes to my head is that I love to help people. The profession also got my interest because I am a nosey person; I like to know what happens to people. I personally love to help people. No matter the situation, if I help someone, I somehow made their life just a little bit easier.
This is the ability to be you without pretence or façade. This is also called genuineness; it is the most important attribute in counselling according to Rogers, in this the counsellor is keen to allow the client to experience them as they really are, the therapist being authentic. Unconditional Positive Regard: (UPR) this is a non-judgemental, Respecting and accepting the other person as they are, Rogers believed that for people to grow and fulfil their potential it is important that they are valued as themselves. The counsellor has a genuine regard for the client, they may not approve of some of the client’s actions, but the therapist does approve of the client. The therapist needs an attitude of “I’ll accept you as you are.” The therapist must always maintain a positive attitude to the client at all times.
Thinking in positive ways not only makes me feel better about situations, but I know it also helps other people dealing with the situation too. So if people ever need help with something I might be the person they will like to come too. All in all I am glad I took the survey and got this little outlook on my strengths. I do believe they fit me and I will use them to better prepare for my
Career Exploration Finding a career that suits your personality and interest’s in life can be a challenge. Many people go throughout life never knowing what they’re good at and what they really want to do with their lives. Luckily for me when you love helping people, have a bubbly personality and like making people realize they can excel so far in life then what they settle for. In order to live the life style I was gifted with I have narrowed it down to one career in particular that I can see myself being very happy and successful at. I believe that becoming a Physical Therapist Assistant is the right choice for me.
“Nothing of me is original. I am the combined effort of everyone I've ever known.” ― Chuck Palahniuk. A person will often feel apprehensive when they are not involved and connected to a certain group but this is when we need to understand and learn to be autonomous and not be necessarily dependent on others. This is when we might find ourselves disconnecting with those surrounding us in order to revaluate ourselves. It is of utmost importance to carefully choose the people we associate with, as we are greatly influenced by our own peer group because they can assist in developing a strong individual identity.
Everyone has different ambitions and goals and we don’t have to do it alone, that’s why the faculty here is more than welcome to help the students make the right decisions. First of all I believe that the Counseling Department is the most important tool Fullerton College has to offer to the students. This is free and we get professional help from people that actually want to help students with any problem. They make us feel safe and secure about our decisions. The counseling department helped me a lot in many ways.
Why do you deserve better, or anything at all? I mean, I can't remember me stepping into a situation and thinking ‘you know what, I deserve all the respect and devotion of that person, and if I don’t get it… that’s obviously their problem.’ But my biggest concern about the idea of ‘deserving’ is how often people apply it to their relationships. My experience (as a coach) is that whatever relationship you are currently in right now… is the one you deserve. Because you chose it, you participate in it and it is what you make
After reading the essay by Emerson “Self Reliance” one of the passages interested me is the one where he talked about a person’s education and how you should not be jealous or try to copy what someone else has done with their live in the same exact why they did it. It is ok to admire somebody for wanting to better themselves and further their education and for you to want the same goals for yourself, but you should pursue your goals by doing things your own way and when you this you will feel the satisfaction of it all because you did it on your own will your own ideas. This relates to my own life because I have always wanted to do something in the medical field and also in law enforcement and it seemed like everybody I talked to was in the field one way or other. So I decided to go back to school to become a Medical Assist and when I did I received my Associate Applied Science Degree and now I am going further with my education and I am currently working on getting my Bachelor’s Degree in criminal justice so that I may pursue a career as a probation officer or something else in law enforcement. Other reason way I was inspired by this passage is how Emerson used imagery in this passage when he was talking about how “no kernel of nourishing corn can come to him but through his toil bestowed on that plot of ground which is given to him to till”.
Advices from others are more realistic and reliable yet personal experience enhances your maturity. However, I think that learning through personal experience is preferable because experience is more memorable and indispensable in life. Advice from family and friends are more realistic since it is what they have been through and it helps you to predict the result. Family members such as your parents’ advices are considered valuable because they can give you proper and sincere guidance on every aspect in life through their experiences or common sense. For instant, my parent told me not to play with fire.
