The result of this survey does show how I react and behave in my life. I was not surprised after I saw the result. Because the survey was very close to what I was thinking about myself, my react and behave.
According to the survey my self – actualizing style is in the medium range. In addition it is close to low range. Therefore I should have moderate interest and try to improve my self with these things. Also I may suspect my abilities to make difference.
Also the survey result does show that my achievement style in the high range. People who in the high range of achievement, strongly believe that they can change things and make them the way they think they could be, and these people are not afraid to take moderate, well-calculated risks.
The range in my perfectionistic style is medium. I might tend to see my ability to accomplish tasks as a measure of my self-worth. While people may see me as a diligent worker, my over-concern with being perfect can cause me to be abrupt and somewhat unresponsive to others feelings.
The survey shows that my competitive style is in the high range. İt is a consideration to be in the high range of this style. Because I tend to be the winner rather then perform well. Also I like to get attention, and getting attention means being in the center which can disturb the relationship with others.
My power-oriented style is in the high range. I really like to have the power and the control all the time. In addition I would be in charge in a workplace. This can affect my relationship with others as well. Because people do not feel comfortable to share their ideas and things with me.
According to the survey my Oppositional style is in the high range. To be honest during my life all my friend were complaining of my oppositional side. This causes me to tend being arrogant. Also I feel like…...

...Encouraging. I`m forty nine years old and have always found myself to hold these characteristics. In the past I have worked around people who held their knowledge of the job close to their belt. I always considered these people to lack confidence in themselves and their abilities. It always made for a difficult working environment. On the other hand, I like to keep a positive attitude. I teach people what I know so that they can progress, and hopefully those people with more expertise do the same for me. I found the descriptions of the various styles to be more than just interesting. For instance, the humanistic-encouraging style can tend to be a compliment to the other area`s that I scored high in, especially achievement. According to the LSI, a high percentile in this area can create a positive working atmosphere. The humanistic-encouraging style is also described as having a genuine concern for people’s growth and development, in addition, a willingness to help others and the ability to inspire and motivate is outlined. Within the categories that I scored high in is also Self-Actualizing. The characteristics in this area that really caught my eye were the energetic approach to life and the desire to experience things directly. I do agree with these attributes, that I both hold them, and that they are valuable. Another thing that I found interesting in that style is that we tend to be people of principle and strive to live up to our own values. I definitely agree with......

...are “overly concerned with being popular and well liked”. I feel that the survey is accurate in the way it describes my management style. PERSONAL THINKING STYLES As a manager in retail sales I definitely see myself practicing both conventional and approval style of leadership. For instance my route to work every day is conventional in the sense that it is the same road every time even though I have the option to take an alternate route. I prefer to take the same road everyday and arrive on time. As the manager I’m required to perform certain tasks at specific times during my shift as described by the company rules. At peak times, the situation may call to abandon protocol but I always tend to stick to the procedures. I agree with the LSI survey because by following the rules, I perceive myself to be responsible and not question my obedience to authority. The approval style of managing applies more to everyday life as well as work. When delegating tasks, I tend to take on the heavy work load and give the employees the “light work”. I try to do things and assign tasks a certain way because I’m overly concerned about other people’s opinion and I like to feel accepted by my peers and coworkers if I give them the easier tasks. Discovering these facts about myself, I’m led to believe that the conventional style of managing works against me in many ways. I’m choosing this style because conforming to the status quo will limit my growth in developing as a person, make me seem......

...successful leader. In this paper, I will discuss the results of my learning styles inventory test. I was pleased and a little shocked to see my results. I believe the test was accurate, however, I was surprised to find out the how high I scored in certain areas. According to the Life Styles Inventory results, my primary style is conventional, and my backup style is affiliative. I have always been referred to as an “old soul” and being conventional has always been my second nature. Being conventional means you that I appreciate rules and structure. I also am reliable and follow policies. Conventionalism and accounting seem to go hand in hand, so I feel confident I can use this personality trait to succeed in my career path. The results of the LSI test concluded that being affiliative was my backup style. Affiliative means that you have a genuine concern for others, and are friendly, and cooperative. I believe this result is a true representation of me. I am not one to cause waves unless absolutely necessary. I also show a lot of empathy towards others and I am always ready to listen to others concerns. I was a little surprised; however, to see how high I scored in dependent and oppositional. I have always considered myself very independent, and very rarely oppositional. I prefer to work on my own without much help, and I am driven to succeed. These results have made me take a second look at myself, and behaviors so I can work to improve any negative qualities. I believe......

...Personal Thinking Styles Pursuant to my Life Styles Inventory (LSI): Self-description results my primary personal thinking style is “Avoidance” with a percentile score of 55% and my back-up thinking style is “Conventional” with a percentile score of 50%. As I reviewed my circumplex I became rather disturbed as I tried to understand the “Avoidance” scale. The LSI description of Avoidance states that the this thinking style is defined by tendencies of denying responsibility and your behavior, feelings of guilt and an obsession of your own concerns. I have trouble relating to these characteristics as I hardly stray from responsibility if it’s warranted or of having guilty feelings and am definitely not obsessive over my own concerns. In fact, I always own up to my responsibilities and/or any mess ups either at work or at home. I have not been in a role of a manager yet have supervised a number of interns and I have never been threatened by or with any responsibilities pushed upon me. In fact, I almost always took same on with confidence and a sense of dedication. I do agree with the assessment that at times I may not give myself full credit where I completely deserve it; I have attributed this more to humility than to insecurity. Although I am not hard on myself for mistakes and misjudgments I do, however, tend to dwell on things far longer than necessary. For example, if during a presentation I stumbled in answering a question I would live with the embarrassment of......

...Personal Thinking Styles: The Life Style Inventory assignment gave me a chance to see on paper how my thinking styles influence my ability to deal with most situations. The Life Style Survey guides individuals to gain insight into their own self development and personality along with the type of behaviors we exercise to others as well. By completing the survey, I have a better understanding on how I can constructively deal with conflicts as an individual. Furthermore, the survey helps us take a look on the positive and negative qualities of our own personalities and different ways we build and improve upon them. According to my LSI results, my primary style was a tie between humanistic-encouraging and self-actualizing which falls under the Constructive Styles. Constructive Style reflects a healthy balance of people and task-related concerns and promotes the fulfillment of higher order needs (Our Measurement Model - The Circumplex, 2010). Humanistic-Encouraging is at the one o’clock position. It reveals the growth and development of people, a high positive regard for them and sensitive to their needs (Our Measurement Model - The Circumplex, 2010). This type of style describes me so well because I am willing to help others, encourage others, and understanding. When I look at my personal and professional life, this is exactly how I view myself.

...D03454209 | LSI Style Interpretation | Leadership and Organizational Behavior | GM5910N_HProfessor Kenneth Goldsmith | Robert Neal White | 8/31/2011 | | After finishing the LSI Style Interpretation for this class I was identified as have the humanistic- encouraging style as my top style with a score of 38 which placed me in the top 93 percent of persons who took the interpretation. My second top style was the affiliative style in which I scored 37 and placed in the top 90 percent of persons who took the interpretation. After contemplating my work / leadership style(s) and comparing how I interact with co- workers and subordinates, I agree with the results and will further discuss my reasoning in this paper. First, I will discuss the humanistic- encouraging style. As depicted on the description of the humanistic- encouraging style, scoring high on the humanistic – encouraging scale is “positive, healthy and effective”. (International, 2011) The high score shows that I am “sensitive to people’s needs, and will devote energy to counseling and coaching others”. (International, 2011) The scale itself measures the takers interest in people and the tendency to care about others. It also measures the takers ability to encourage others to improve. As stated on the description, since I scored as high as I did I should “ have an unconditional positive regard for others”. (International, 2011). I completely agree with the results of the survey and am......

...difficult to measure or evaluate it. Many people may be able to describe their strengths, but they do not like to talk about their weaknesses. On the other hand, people who can objectively identify their strengths and weaknesses. But in the same time they found difficulties to recognize how they can enhance their strengths and how they can overcome their weaknesses. Therefore, Human Synergistic In. developed computer software called life style inventory, which will be referred as LSI. The LSI software helps users to assess their behavior, not only that, it work with them to improve strengths and reduce the effect of weaknesses. LSI is tremendously helpful software especially when you come to the working behavior, which requires interacting, dealing and working with people who are different from you. In the rest of this paper I will try articulate my life behavior base on LSI test. I found that my primary behavior is “competitive” and my backup is “approval”.

...Every manager supposed to know all of his strengths and weaknesses knowing that he/she will be dealing with people of all different behaviors. Knowing your strengths and weakness is the key asset to successfully manage an organization. For this purpose Dr. J. Clayton Lafferty developed The Life Style Inventory (LSI) for self-improving purposes for the reasons of increasing a personal and professional effectiveness. The LSI measures 12 specific styles of patterns of thinking that can either help or hinder a person from reaching his or her potential. The 12 styles measured by LSI are organized into three general clusters: Constructive, which includes: achievement, self-actualizing, humanistic-encouraging, and affiliate thinking style. Passive/Defensive, which includes: approval, conventional, dependent, and avoidance thinking styles. Aggressive/Defensive, which includes: oppositional, power, competitive, and perfectionistic thinking styles. After honestly answering 240 questions I received the results that my primary personal style is achievement where I received the highest score of 95%. This style shows the following characteristics: focusing on achieving self-set goals, believes that individual effort counts, commits to make things better, take on challenging tasks and prefer to setting and accomplishing realistic goals rather than goals imposed by others. My secondary personal style is self-actualizing. This style shows the following characteristics: self-respect,......

...RUNNING HEAD: LSI Paper I am charged with the task of completing the Life Styles Inventory Survey to give a self-description of my thinking styles. The purpose of this assignment is to determine the impact that the personal styles have on my management style and to identify which one of my thinking styles may be reducing my overall effectiveness. After completing the survey, my circumplex shows that my primary thinking style is the “Conventional Style”(4 o’clock) and my backup thinking style is the “Power Style” (8 o’clock). I agree with the results of the conventional thinking style, but, I do not fully agree with the results of the power thinking style. According to the LSI results, the conventional thinking style is one that measures our inclination to act in a compliant way. Conventional thinkers worry about adhering to rules and established procedures. According to the LSI results, when we depend on on established procedures in determining how we do things, we risk losing our sense of uniqueness and individuality. I would have to agree with the results of this survey that I am a conventional thinker. As a child, my parents had very strict household rules that, simply, were not to my benefit to break. Therefore, I often abided by the rules. I think this is why I tend to do things strictly by the book. Doing things by the book gives me a sense of security in knowing that I followed the policy, in case something goes wrong. As a conventional thinker, I......

Lsi Assessment

...after I completed the LSI( Life Style Inventory) assessment and read the results I had to pull myself away from my work to really think about my results. When I took the assessment I told myself I wanted to be as honest as I possible could, so perhaps I might get honest answers as to how I think and behave. Then answer question like, how do the ways I think and behave affect my management style for now and in the future? Knowing yourself is important to every aspect of your like. I spend a lot of time trying to get a better understanding for why I respond to certain situation in certain ways. For example, when, when I’m asked to do anything at work I immediately say, “no problem”. My coworkers jokingly call me the teacher’s pet or they say thinks like, “Your really trying to keep your job”. Some will even wink and say things like, “Job security”. I smile at their jest. I’m sure that it comes from a good place, but none of what they say can be further from the truth. I whole-heartedly want to do what ever it takes to help get the job done. Which is why I found the result of my LSI assessment so interesting. The LSI determined that my primary style of thinking is Constructive, which according to the LSI is a style of thinking that is self-enhancing and contributes to my satisfaction, ability to effectively work with others, develop healthy relationships, and to proficiently accomplish task. My back up thinking style passive/defensive, which according the LSI represents......

...Akema Reid Akema.Reid@gmail.com Leadership and Organizational Behavior Professor Doctor October 9, 2011 After completing the LSI assignment, I have learned a lot about myself. Per the results of the LSI, my primary thinking styles are power at percentage of 65. My back-up percentile was humanistic-encouraging at 63%. The results for my power thinking style is at a medium percentage compared to others that have taken the test. I didn’t think that power would rate as the highest percentage for me, though I did think that it would fall in the median level compared to others. I don’t see myself as using or wanting much power at my job. I don’t see that power is manifested much while I am working, but I do see it manifested in other things outside of my job. I currently dislike my job and have no desire to be a part of the company; therefore, power is not anything that is manifested through my job. While I am working, I am more of a laid back person and I don’t feel the need to contribute any ideas. When I am working with others, I try to ensure that we are all at the same level, making others feel welcome and not make others feel as if they are inferior. When working with my peers, I try to establish equality. On the other hand, when dealing with management, I tend to exercise my own power in that aspect. Unfortunately, I am working for a company that demonstrates bad management practices. Management at my......

...Life Styles Inventory (LSI) Oliver Perez, Olliep2@gmail.com, GM591 Leadership and Organizational Behavior Prof. Terri Horton, 05/14/2011 After reviewing my results it shows that my “Primary” thinking skill is being Affiliative. My “Backup” is Self-Actualizing. Being “Affiliative” relates to how much you value relationships with everyone you meet or interact with. Sharing thoughts and feelings come easy to this person, to open a sense of trust. “Self-Actualizing” is a sense of knowing that you can always be a better you, and having realistic views. Knowing that you can become something greater and more fulfilling. They are also aware of both their “Own” feelings and “Others. Within my “Primary” thinking skill, my life is usually surrounded by personal interaction. Whether it is with my friends and family, or with colleagues and upper management at my work place, I’m comfortable with getting to know a person. I do agree with the high percentile that I have gotten with this area on my circumplex. I personally like to build up relationships with others so that I can gain one’s trust. I feel that, if there is no trust in any relationship, there is no meaning to it, and neither one of us will benefit from each other. That saying also goes for work, if I cannot achieve my colleague’s trust; I feel that I would not have any type of connection to them. With no connection, neither of us would want to help each other out on any projects. When gaining my supervisor or managers......

...would be wrong and I would not get a good grade on an assignment or test. Some other ways that the dependent style is apparent in my work is that I make sure that my co-workers and even my boss is pleased with my work and I want to make sure that there are no mistakes before I submit any important documents to be processed. Another way is that when it comes to any customer, I can be very apologetic if something comes up that has not been done correctly, they have come back numerous times, and the issue still is not resolved. I always want to make sure that the customer is satisfied and that they know that they do not need to come back repeatedly about the same issue. When it comes to agreeing and disagreeing with these personal thinking styles, I agree with both outcomes of them, because that is what I do almost on a daily basis. With that, I am saying that I am always helpful to others (affiliative) and I always want to please everyone (dependent) in my life and my work life. So all in all, these styles can help me in my life and in my work life, but they can also hurt me in moving forward with my life and work life, because I can’t please everyone and I can’t always share all of my feelings to another person or customer. Unquestionably, my limiting style that is working against me and decreases my overall successfulness; this comes from me longing to be a perfectionist and to always complete an assignment to the utmost standard. Through entailing such a......
