Hi! My name is Tia Gazzola. Originally I was a psych major, but now Im majoring in business administration with a concentration in marketing. I hope to work somewhere in the advertising world. I would say my relationship with writing in certain areas is strong , but weaker in others. I like to write creatively and I think I am good at it. I took AP lang in high school, so my background in analyzing writing is good, but not great in the field of professional writing. I exercise my creativity by journaling my thoughts or expressing my feelings. I also like to draw and occasionally paint because it is very comforting and therapeutic to me. My MBTI is INFJ and it says that I “The Advocate”. I am not surprised by that because I have taken this test before and have gotten that. It compared me with Gandhi, MLK Jr. and Marilyn Manson. I can see how Gandhi and MLK compare, but the addition of Marilyn Manson was odd to me. I don’t see myself being like him at all. I know he’s a very artistic person, but he also does some weird things. He’s very out there. I agree with one of my strengths and it says that I see patterns in everything which I really think I do. I always see how things relate or why one thing caused another. However, one of my strengths say I lead with my intuition which I kind of agree with. I say I mostly lead with intuition, but also with some thought and I tend to have some kind of conscious thought process. One of my weaknesses says that I keep my experiences to myself which I completely disagree with. If I can help others by sharing my experiences that’s what I do and I am totally comfortable with doing that. It makes me feel good. It also says that I can feel the emotions of others which I completely agree with. Sometimes I can take on others problems which isn’t the best trait. It can weigh me down especially if that person has some sort of a really tough problem. I also know that the “I” stands for introvert. I think I’m more of an ambivert because I am not totally extroverted like some and I’m not completely extroverted like others. I do relax/recharge when I am alone, but if I have too much alone time I will get lonely. I do like talking to people and learning about who they are, but I’m not the type who just walks up to a stranger and starts talking to them. It also says that I am a leader which I also think is accurate. If no one else feels comfortable leading or no one else wants to, I have no problem stepping into that role. My personal goals for this class are to be a better writer in the professional field and actually learn how to write in that way. As well as how to ask/answer questions in a professional way.
