According to how I rate myself, I would say that I am very collaborative and therefore ready to compromise for foster robust accommodation. In matter relating to home/family environment I have a balance as I reacted the same way I would have reacted in non-home environment.
The results of the people who rated me were as follows; James gave me 8 scores at avoidance while my pastor gave me 10 on the same style. On competition I scored 11 and 12 from James and Pastor. On compromise styles I scored, James and pastor 17, 19. About accommodation style I scored 23 for James and 20 for pastor and on collaboration I scored 22 for James and 23 for pastor.
I noted that sometimes it is very hard for an individual to perfectly rate himself as there some traits that outsiders can observed and conclude while you may not be taking those traits as having ground on your character. After comparing my friends’ results with mine, I found out that I had overrated myself in the styles such as compromise, accommodation and collaboration and underrated myself on avoidance and competition styles. Even though I had performed well on the styles, I was not surprised by my friend opinions as they came closer to my rating only that my results were extreme as I believed I adored the styles I like most.
These results have reinforced my character as well as challenged me to work extra harder and change for the better so that my beliefs and values can be well articulated and people get to understand them fully. I have learnt from this exercise that I must be able to accommodate all views and assess them critically so that I can make critical decision which is rational. I have also learnt that compromise is a bitter choice but must be given preference when a person want to create a level playing field for feuding competitors. Moreover, to prolong peace and harmony compromise styles is an excellent choice that a mediator can exploit to unify feuding peoples,
