Personality Type - future career paths, relationships, communication and learning styles
Posted by Deborah Rubinstein at 5/3/2013
When I went off to college, I thought I'd want to be a lawyer. Several internships later, I realized law school was not for me. So I asked for help at a career center on my college campus, and they had me take this really useful personality test, called Myers-Briggs.
If you decide to take the test, please post the results.
It would be fun to see what we all come up with...I tested as an ENFP. And, when I read the personality profile, I was surprised to see how much of it actually fit me. There are 16 personality types though, and I can't imagine all of the billions of people who have ever existed and will ever exist, will be able to fit neatly into a mere 16 types. I also didn't see a great deal of scientific research behind this. I have found it useful as a tool to help you find a career or a college major, or for help in better understanding how different people we meet, communicate and process information.
Are you worried about passing your EOC exams or are you a junior or senior who is concerned about passing TAKS?
Please let me know what topics you need help with, and when you are available for tutoring. My tutoring time is Wednesday afternoon from 4:15-5:15 pm, and I'm here for the Saturday sessions of credit recovery.
If you are unable to attend tutoring with me at these times, please let me know what you need help with so that I can create a video or a powerpoint to help you out. I will make these available on-line for others to view as well, so that every student can benefit.
If you are a student in Biology I with Mr. Lomas, I am creating the opportunity for you to improve your second nine weeks grading period.
Your nine weeks grade consists of 2 parts: 50% of your grade is formative, 50% of your grade is summative.
To earn credit towards the formative part of your grade, you may view and complete assignments for the videos that will be posted on this site.
I am currently creating these instructional videos.
To earn your summative grade, you need to take three unit tests. Two of these tests were given during biology class. For any student who received below an 80, you may come see Ms. Brierley or myself, for a copy of the exam. You may do test corrections so as to raise your grade to an 80. For test corrections, you may use any resource available to you, including the instructional videos which I am creating.
If you have not taken these unit tests, please send an e-mail to me at email@example.com with your name, ID # and the class period during which you are enrolled in biology I.
The videos will be posted to this site, as they are created. If you have any questions pertaining to the instruction, please post the questions or comments below.
Extra credit is available for students who post thought provoking questions or provide additional links to other useful resources.
If you failed the first nine weeks in biology, chemistry, geometry or Algebra I, please contact me so that we can arrange a conference with your classroom teacher. Then we can discuss options for salvaging your first semester credit. Such options include a contract with a requirement of good attendance (no more than 5 absences), good behavior (no discipline referrals) as well as a project. Please post ideas for projects that you would be willing to do, or for teachers, projects you'd like to have students create, so that we can all have satisfactory first semester. Ideas for a project could include researching a topic, and then creating a lesson plan to teach that topic. For ideas, please refer to my podcast page, where I've created supplemental lesson plans.
