Strengths and weaknesses are important to us as individuals in order to make a difference in correlation to personal growth. Our individuality is further intensified by each of us having different goals, priorities and other special qualities. In writing this paper I plan to clearly define and identify each of my strengths and weaknesses. I believe this class is definitely giving me a greater understanding of the different techniques and methods that will allow me to improve my learning process.
