Art is the desire of a man to express himself, to record the reactions of his personality to the world he lives in.
Amy Lowell (1874 - 1925)
It's very surprising that I had to think for a reasonable amount of time before I finally came up with the lists of my strengths and weaknesses. As a human being sometimes we forget to measure ourselves for self enhancement. I am not sure how artistic I am going to be in presenting myself, but I believe that I will fulfill the purpose of this paper if after finishing it I can maintain my healthy qualities and start making effort to take control of my weaknesses.
I believe that I possess the followings strengths:
Passion for Learning,
Liking for Teamwork,
Clarity of Purpose, and I am going to briefly discuss these in the following.
I believe that positive attitude can take me a long way in life. I always try to look at the good side of things. This encouraging attitude gives me the self confidence I need to succeed in my works. As an intellect once said that few things in the world are more powerful than a positive push: a smile, a word of optimism, hope, and a "you can do it" when things are tough. My confidence and self motivation contributes greatly to my student life.
I enjoy learning as long as the learning method is not very monotonous. I learn best in interactive environment. Classroom is a good way to interact with others but to my opinion the least of learning is done in classrooms. With the advancement of technology, mastering the knowledge of any subject whether it is science, history, religion or culture has become much more fascinating. Today's student can receive information through interactive presentations, videos, CD-ROMS and web sites at his own chosen time and at the environment best suitable for him. Therefore, I take control of my learning experience and thereby maximize my passion for learning.
I am always said to be a fast learner. Sometimes that can be a little annoying to people who are trying to work with me in a group. However, I have always been gifted to memorize, read and write much faster than average and this quality of mine has always helped me to do good at times when other works of life have taken most of my time-slots and left a little for my education. Another good consequence of my being a fast learner was my opportunity to serve my fellow friends and workers. Whether at school or work, I have always been helping my fellow mates in learning. As a result, helping others and working with others has become my second nature.
I love to work in groups. I rather work as a team member than a team leader because I don't like to be raised above others and don't like to be more accountable than others....
