My personal strengths involve my seriousness as well as concentration when studying or working. In other words, it appears that almost everything does not distract me, especially when I am doing what I am attracted or what I care for. This ability enables me to accomplish my study in a fast and effective way. In addition, being good at managing time is also improve my work as when I take advantage of time management skill, means I arrange the work in order and follow the priorities.
Hence, things can be done on time in a way it should be and I can avoid being late for classes or meetings as well as become punctual. As a matter of fact, well managing time helps me to be more effective and reduce pressure from deadlines (Kearns & Gardiner, 2007). Furthermore, listening and being open to others’ opinions are also my strength. Ferrari (as cited in Carter, 2012) stated: “Good listening is the key to developing fresh insights and ideas that fuel success”.
It can be said that those are not only a good way to show my respect to partners but also expand my view; therefore, that is the way for me to gain more knowledge.
Being able to recognize our own strengths and weaknesses can help us become better individuals in anything we choose to do, whether it is our positive abilities and skills that can help achieve our goals or negative personal areas that need improvement. Knowing yourself and what you can do, can help you recognize and overcome your weaknesses.
My greatest strength is my ability to be a well-organized individual. I tend to write down what I have to do on paper and prioritize what is most important to least important. Doing so helps me organize and accomplish my work and meet deadlines that are important. In this process, I am also able to foresee potential mistakes and clarify them upfront. This approach has not only helped me meet deadlines but has also provided me with the confidence that all loose ends are tied off. One personal strength I have is, I am a very positive amicable person. I try to focus on the bright side of things in all situations, I like giving people compliments and encouraging them to do well.
One of my weaknesses is sometimes thinking in a complex way even though that problem can be solved easily. In the articles about complicatedly thinking mentioned that “Over-thinking turns something simple into a something so complicated in your mind; to the point where coming out of the complication seems impossible” (Nooriyahm, 2015). Indeed, some problems were changed into complicated by my thoughts and that makes me more anxious, doubtful and hesitated when making decision. Additionally, I need to improve my skill of presenting and speaking in front of a crowd. I am aware that I am not confident when speaking in front of large groups of people although I am not in fear of crowds. In today’s active and competitive environment, if I lack of that skill, it may impact my future career and its advancement. “Seventy percent of employed Americans who give presentations agree that presentation skills are critical to their success at work, according to a new Prezi survey” (Gallo, 2014). Taking too much work at the same time is strength or weakness may depend on circumstance or each person. In regard to me, it is my weakness. There are some things that can combine to do at once, however, I will be confused when carrying many things simultaneously, which causes them to not be the best of my ability.
I love meeting new people every day, and getting involved with new people. Whether it be work or school related. I enjoy speaking, listening, and giving input to my peers and family members. I want them to be aware that they can count on me to participate as a team member in anything we do together. Good people skills are very important in a group setting because of the interaction you must have with one another to communicate effectively. I love socializing and making new friends. Also I am a great leader, I love stepping up and setting an example. Being social and positive has contributed to my leadership ability, making it a great combination for someone in a leadership role. Having leadership qualities is a great thing to have and can really change Society for the better. It can make people want to follow the example you set, just as long as that example is a positive good one!
Some opportunities can be created by myself. Take advantage of getting on well with people and being open-minded gives me the opportunities to make friends or build more relationships in the future, which can benefit and support me as I am aware of the importance of relationships “When we face difficult times, we need other people to support us. No one can take care of everything by himself” (Latumahina, 2007). My current education is also my opportunity. Studying in an international school gives me a chance to get accustomed to international environment, which helps me improve my English and get a job in a multinational company. In the era of industry 4.0 when technologies become main tool used for dealing with work, expert in computer is an advantage. Therefore, I am trying to cultivate and practice computer skills so that it will assist me in future job. In addition, some opportunities can be found around us. Good environment associated with excellent friends and seniors also forms my motivation to put more effort in studying, learning many new things from them as well as from surroundings or receiving feedback about their experience of me to gain necessary knowledge and experiences as basic foundation for future life.
