In addition to her career and all her creative pursuits, KC loves to travel, absorbing the local culture as much as possible. She has been to nearly every state in the union and has traveled abroad. Growing up in Iowa gave KC an appreciation of simple things and a slower pace of life. Living in Maryland for over a decade exposed her to the diversity she had longed for as a child. Now KC lives north of Salt Lake City, Utah with her husband and their brown hound and loud cat.
According to the MBTI personality assessment, KC is an I/ENFP. (She is an ambivert, showing qualities of both introverts and extroverts.) As such, KC is curious and creative, flexible and charismatic. She is driven to understand others and help them by anticipating their needs. She has a strong sense of right and wrong and is devoted to her ideals. KC finds it easy to absorb the whole picture, perceiving complicated patterns and information quickly. Just don’t ask her to remember a date or name from history!
Using the DiSC behavioral assessment, KC’s type is an I/S. She places an emphasis on collaboration to accomplish a task by influencing or persuading others. KC can be magnetic and enthusiastic. She prioritizes taking action, values freedom of expression, and is motivated by opportunities to help. On the flip side, details tend to drag her down.
The CliftonStrengths assessment indicates that KC’s top five strengths are Activator, Futuristic, Ideation, Positivity, and Strategic. In other words, KC is action-oriented, forward-thinking, creative, optimistic, and strategic.
Personality assessments are a great way of getting to know yourself and others better. (Please be aware, however, assessments are not infallible nor a substitute for self-discovery. They are only a tool in that process.) There are numerous free resources online to use to find out your “types” if you are interested.
