All About Me

I was born in the Netherlands on December 10th 2001. I have two siblings named Ethan, 20, and Naomi, 19. They are both in college so I am home alone with my mom and my dad. I enjoy playing sports such as football and basketball. I usually get excellent grades in school and am involved in the gifted and talented program. I hope to go to a nice college and get a degree. I have not yet decided what I want to do with my life but I plan to have a wife and kids. I travel often and enjoy moving around. So far I have been to three continents and 7 countries. I speak two languages and have many relatives in the Netherlands. I enjoy having a bit of an exotic life and being different.

Self Esteem

I have a fairly high self esteem of 80 out of 100. I was not surprised by these results. I think that this correlates with my self esteem because I think pretty highly of myself. I am smart and athletic and don't tell me otherwise. This self esteem means that I think of myself as I am and I don't often get down and out because someone made fun of you. I try to maintain this self esteem and go far in life.

I expected to have a good attitude and the test that I took to show that I have a positive outlook on life. Normally if something bad happens it is probably by chance and I still have what it takes to succeed. The results of the test were that I have a positive attitude. I don't take things very personal and I don't let setbacks bring me down. A positive thinker has an optimistic outlook on life and sees the best in things. I will try to maintain this positive attitude and keep a nice and bright outlook on life.

Career Aptitude

I expected the results of my career aptitude test to say that I should become an engineer or maybe even a business man. Instead most of the results of the test were related to health. There were a few oddballs like being a mathematician or a geoscientist but for the most part it was some type of doctor. I guess I would be a good doctor. I have good social skills and I am smart but It is not what I had envisioned. After high school I plan to go to college and pursue the career of my dreams.

Learning Style

I really didn't know what learning style to expect when I took the test but I feel that this one fits me well. I am a tactile learner. A tactile learner is someone that learns with hands on activities, basically touching and doing. They this way rather than though hearing (auditory) or seeing (visual). As a tactile I enjoy experiments and physical movement. I can remember things better if something active is involved.

Brain Orientation

I am right brained. A right brained person involves creativity, intuition and curiosity. A left brained person involves rationality, strategy and logic. I didn't expect to be a right brained person because I think that I am a rational and logical thinker. I would expect to be a left brained thinker. The results of my test mean that I am creative and use images and like fantasy.

Personality Color

My personality color is green. A person with a green personality color is full of life and love. They love the outdoors and are natural optimists. They are full of wanderlust. I think that this is accurate. I love the outdoors and am an optimist.

Skills Confidence

My top five results for my skills confidence are:

  • Design/Pre-construction
  • Audio and Video Technology and Film
  • Manufacturing Production Process Development
  • Engineering and Technology
  • Environmental Service Systems

Some of these results match my interests. The job that most suits me most out of these jobs is a job involving engineering and technology. A person that works in design/preconstruction might inspect construction sites and direct and supervise construction work. The median wage for a person in that profession in Arkansas is 70,390.The median wage for the country is 79,340.

The outlook for this job is a 20% increasment of employment.

In another job I would plan and direct activities for construction and maintenance of structures and help conceptualize projects and oversee organization. The median wage for a person of that profession is 65,180. Nationally it is 82,790. The outlook for this profession is a16% increasement in employment.
