Knowing about your own personality can benefit you in many ways: Whether it is about the way you deal with a high level of workload, your approach to meeting challenging project milestones or whether knowing about whether you have the right leadership traits for your dream job, you need to know about your personality traits.
Once you know about your personality traits, you can work on how to develop your personality: this includes learning about how to best use your strengths and weaknesses at the workplace to grow your career.
