Twice within the past 5 years I have personally met and heard PETER WEDDLE, a recruiter, HR consultant and business CEO turned author and commentator, described by The Washington Post as “… a man filled with ingenious ideas,” who has earned an international reputation, pioneering concepts in Human Resource leadership and employment speak at the Kennedy Recruiting Conference, a conference that is widely attended by head hunters, recruiters, employment agencies and representatives from job boards. Both times I was astounded by his breadth of knowledge and boundless energy and enthusiasm for sharing eye opening information about the recruitment process. So, when I read WEDDLE’s latest newsletter, I immediately got his permission to share the following article with you.
Well, it’s Monday and I am back in the office after taking a week long training in the Myers Briggs Personality Type administration and validation. I am always amazed by my passion for learning, which, in part, can be attributed to my Myers Briggs Personality Type.
According to my validation of personality type, I am an ENFP. ENFP’s are credited with being warmly enthusiastic and imaginative. See life as full of possibilities (for me, learning presents many new possibilities). Make connections between events and information very quickly (I am usually anxious to share my knowledge to benefit clients, friends, family and colleagues) and proceed on patterns they see. Want a lot of affirmation from others and readily give appreciation and support (I just love it when clients report back that they’ve gotten a better position or that the resume I wrote turned their job search around1) Spontaneous and flexible, often rely on their ability to improvise and their verbal fluency.
