As mentioned in the previous blog post, the Guidance Department is moving towards the development of Student Success Plans for each EOS student. Part of this plan includes completion of a personality assessment, patterned after the very popular Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), called "Do What You Are". The assessment is available in Naviance and students receive a detailed report upon completion of the assessment. Below is a description of one pair of students. Notice the initials for each and you'll see that they are SJ. This just happens to be a category of "type" as defined by the MBTI. It should be noted that students certainly don't fall into neat categories (nor does anyone else, for that matter), but instead exhibit tendencies. In subsequent posts, three other "types" will be described. If you're a student reading this, you may want to compare yourself to each type and determine which most closely resembles you. If you're a parent, you may wish to do the same.
