Self-Analysis, Identity, Personality Development
Self-analysis is reviewing elements of your social, professional, and overall self to understand your actions' "Why?". This paper used a series of analytic tools to collect information about who I am. Tools included explaining my background, personality assessments (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and The Big Five), and one-on-one interviews with my loved ones. This information was then used to explain my desire to apply theoretical approaches in counseling, including Feminist Therapy, Family-Systems Therapy, and Person-Centered Therapy. Data collected gave the reader insight into this writer's understanding of self. Data was also used to justify current therapeutic interests and future goals for development.
