Whether you are a student at a school or if you work in a professional setting, there are sure to be words that are good to use to describe yourself. Here are a few tips to putting together some key words or statements.
If you think back to grade school you will find that whenever you had an essay to write, you were told to brainstorm. Think about yourself from every angle.
These are things that you should ask yourself as you go along.
There are plenty ways to do self assessments. There are quizzes online, some of which may also be available from your employer.
Taking self assessments will better help you with coming up with the perfect descriptive phrases that would better describe you.
Additionally many of these tests give you the catch phrases that you will need. For example, at the end of your assessment you might see a section entitled “Results.” Under this section you will more than likely see catch phrases that will describe you. For example it might say “[Your Firstname] is great at multi-tasking and words well under pressure.”
You can borrow from these catch phrases in order to get statements that will better describe you.
What better way to get a great idea of the impressions people have of you than just asking them. Sometimes people you know can definitely tell you things that you do not know about yourself. They can give you good examples of what they see in you. This will be quite helpful in assisting you in accomplishing your goal of capturing the right description of yourself.
Here are a few examples that you can pull from when you are trying to describe yourself. Take a look at the statements to see how they are put together structurally, and then you should see if any apply to your personality. If not, then you should customize the statement so that it better describes you.
If you look at the four statements above, do you see anything that stands out and reminds you of an element of your personality? If not think about your positive qualities again, and start there.
These are all things that you should consider.
Sit down and really think through what you want to say. Think long and hard about what you intend to convey. Always remember that there is a fine line between being confident and being conceited. You must learn how to walk that line with ease and professionalism.
