Myers-Briggs Personality Types in the Workplace: Part 1

By General

As we all know, during this pandemic, we have all had to become more creative in the ways in which we safely interact with our friends. One said method has been through social distancing picnics. It was during one of these catch-up sessions that a friend of mine asked all of us if we knew what our personality types were. Of course, as a psychology major, I had heard about this, but a few of my friends had not. This led to all of us doing the 16personalities test. Not only did this create an hour-long conversation, but we all also came out of the discussion with a better understanding of one another.

As an ENFP, I had a general understanding of what my personality type was like, but it never really dawned on me that this could ultimately provide me with more insight in terms of the type of work environment, career, and work that I would thrive in.  Albeit, my personality type in the last 10 years of my life, has changed once or twice, depending on the period in my life, but it has provided me with a general guideline.

Pride

By General

I always thought it was beautiful that Pride was the term used to celebrate LGBTQ+ because Pride by definition is the “emotional state deriving positive affect from the perceived value of a person or thing with which the subject has an intimate connection, and can be inwardly or outwardly directed.”  Within the definition itself, “positive” is what stands out to me the most because for a very long time and quite honestly, even occasionally now, there are times that it is difficult for me to feel that way.

No Solidarity in Silence

By General
Anti-Racism goes beyond a black box on your timeline. As an organization working in the space of diversity and inclusion, we recognize we need to do more to support job seekers and partners within our program. At Career Edge, our mission is to help individuals break barriers to employment, and for many of our job seekers, these barriers go beyond simply whether they have just graduated, have a disability or are new to Canada. For these individuals, they face daily injustices simply due to the color of their skin or the name they have been given. Systemic racism is prevalent, not only within America but all over the world. It is our responsibility to stop the cycle and to make sure we are doing our part to ensure fair and equal opportunity for not only people of color, but especially for Black people. Read More
