Was your project meaningful?

This project really helped my understanding of personalities. It also helped me delve into psychology, and my considerations for career choices in psychology. It helped me learn how typing systems are used, and how personality tests can be useful in self development.

Was your project ambitious?

This project challenged me in many ways. I do not find it easy to understand people, so a project based on a system for personalities was difficult. I found that in the end I understood more about how each function plays a role in people's lives. I was already interested in psychology to begin with though, so this wasn't too hard to do.

Was your project deep?

I can definitely use the system to type not only myself, but other people too. This may make it easier to connect with people and understand why they are the way that they are. It also could help me grow as a person in the future. Knowing my personality type helps me know what weakness I have in my personality.
