The second highest score is Pragmatist. According to Honey and Mumford, Pragmatists are keen on trying out ideas, theories and techniques to see if they work in practice.

It’s seems a bit contrast to Pragmatist but I would say even I am the person who like to try different ideas but I will think about is it logical first.

Finally, the lower ranking is Activist which tend to rush into action without thinking ahead sufficiently. I am also agreeing on that as no matter my colleagues or families also think that I am a person who really like to go into details and I would spend sometimes to think about every cases before taking the actions.

According to the test results, firstly, it indicated my personality is more extroverted than introverted. I agree on that as I am the person who like to discuss or interacting with colleagues and classmates. However, as I said that before I am a person who really think before taking actions. That’s the reason why the results are quite balance between Extroverted or introverted.
