In this Analysis of Self, I review relevant background information and experiences and examine how they have shaped me as a person and counselor through various theory of counseling lenses. I then examine the results of the personality assessments MBTI-Strong and HEXACO. This is followed by interviews with five individuals and my impressions and major themes that resulted. I then view the information gathered from this analysis, and frame it using several counseling perspectives. I then reflect on the process of writing my self-analysis and ways that it has affected me personally and as a counselor. Lastly, I provide plans for ways I hope to continue to develop professionally and personally.
