The Type of Personality You Are Period 5

Today in the 5th period world of Smith, special guest Charlene Brock came to talk with the class. She asked us the question 'Why am I here?' as a lead into the facinating lecture that soon followed. One of the goals of the period was to gain basic understanding of psychological type and preferences. Mrs. Brock lectured the Personality Type Theory and had the class participate in understanding ourselves better.
Dominant Hand
The first activity the class did was to sign their name at the top of the paper, and then sign their name with the other hand. This was to show that while it may be awkward to write with the non-dominant hand, it is possible and that the skill can be developed.
