Recently I took the Myers-Briggs test to determine the type of personality that I resembled. When I first took it, I thought it was trivial and did not see the real benefits although after I received a detailed description of my results, I quickly saw the importance. I also realized that it would be very helpful for my students to take this test so I can understand their personality and their style of learning. I can then better assess the best way to teach technology to reach each individual and when assessing their learning, I will know how they think and express themselves.
If you are not familiar with the test, there are four separate categories for scoring the results.
My personality results were very interesting as noted in bold:
ENERGY FLOW: extrovert, introvert
GATHERING INFORMATION: sensing, intuition
DECISION MAKING: thinking, feeling
ORGANIZATION: plan, flexible
