Distinctive Qualities

What it is:
This section comes from the Sheffield Legal Assessment and quickly identifies an individual’s most distinguishing characteristics (where one differs the most from the collective norm) as compared to our global attorney database
Why it is important:
Allows one to instantly understand the individual’s characteristics that are most distinctive from the norm. In other words, what makes this individual “stand out” from other attorneys. This knowledge is useful to the individual for better self awareness . It is also useful for organizations in hiring, team selection, managing and interacting with the individual.

These represent the most distinctive qualities that make James different from other attorneys.

Collaborative Problem Solver

James works well in a group setting - particularly when solving problems. Lawyers with this strength tend to be good negotiators. When tasked to solve a problem, James tends to seek advice from others or attempt to form a consensus before settling on a solution to a problem.

Goal Driven

James frequently sets goals for planning purposes or for measuring personal or organizational success. His goal setting is a powerful process for thinking about his future, and for turning this vision of the future into reality. Multiple studies have shown that explicit goal-setting has been found to be a shared trait among highly successful people.

Resilient

James is highly resilient and exhibits a strong ability to handle rejection and accept criticism. This is an excellent trait for a law firm associate or junior partner as it allows one to endure the often rigorous demands of the job. It also helps a rainmaker cope with rejection and rebound from a 'no' to other potential work or pitches for another client.

Cognitive Superpower

What it is:
Everyone has a distinctive personality quality (“Super Power”) they can leverage and contribute to a group. This section identifies and defines each person’s Super Power.
Why it is important:
Calling out one’s distinctive Super Power provides positive reinforcement that one’s personality is worthy and valued for what one can contribute to a group. It provides self awareness of one’s distinctive value and improves self esteem. For managers and colleagues, it provides a quick understanding of what distinctive quality an individual “brings to the table” and can contribute to a project or team.

"This is the best direction."

James’s Superpower - Super Comprehension

Super Comprehension

James experiences a complete and instant understanding of a problem or situation; which is what Super Comprehension is about. Neuroscience shows that for those with this power; it is like they listen and their brain just provides the answer; fully formed. Going to sleep and waking up with the answer is much more common for people with this superpower.



Being able to see and understand something from a higher level is natural. Understanding that higher level and how something is connected to what is around it allows James to be amazingly insightful into what long-term results will occur from any action.



James's ability to accurately predict the future in the area of their knowledge is unbelievable. Those with this superpower often report having trouble meditating; for it is during the time of quiet meditation that their brain seems to wake up the most and start providing insight.



Overdependence on this superpower can especially cause problems for the person in areas where they have little knowledge. At this time their brain responds with either silence or worthless deductions.

Engagement Styles

James's Engagement Style: Carefully Understand

Your dominant engagement style describes how you prefer to interact and engage with others, especially when working on a project. Your engagement style can be helpful in identifying how you prefer to interact with teammates and how you make your best contributions. Each engagement style has several key opportunities for making a project successful. When an engagement style is overused, then that style can create threats to a project's success.

Style Opportunities Threats

Organize & Direct

  • Move others forward
  • Achieve goals
  • Badgering
  • Hasty decisions

Carefully Understand

  • Understand ramifications
  • Make the plan
  • Analysis paralysis
  • Refusal to change plan

  • Tweak to improve
  • Quietly fix things
  • Never finished
  • Lack of Decision

Dynamically Explore

  • Energetic discovery
  • Get things going
  • Unnecessary changes

Visual Type & Go-To Behaviors

What it is:
This is a visual model of Carl Jung’s Psychological Types showing how each person uses all eight behaviors. Two are your dominant and supporting Go-To Behaviors. Visual Type provides a visual guide to the predictive use and accessibility of each behavior and an instantly recognizable way to see differences between people.
Why it is important:
Visualization makes it easier to understand how individuals and groups most naturally make decisions and behave. This helps individuals with self awareness and helps others understand what they can expect from the individual. This can be particularly helpful when comparing an individual’s Visual Type to a group’s Visual Type to determine if the individual can help fill gaps or deficits in the group’s natural go-to behaviors.

Type Code: INTJ | Go-To Behaviors: Connect & Execute | Jungian Functions: Ni & Te

Visual Type with Go-To Behaviors

Connect

Look to how things connect, the future and predict possible outcomes


James uses the process of identifying seemingly disconnected patterns to result in instant insight into a problem or situation. James visualizes his goal or end result, focuses on strategy, synthesizes data almost unconsciously and predicts results with surprising accuracy. James looks to and visualizes the future for answers.

(This is where James starts when interacting with the world. The Primary or Dominant behavior.)

Execute

Decide based on measurable goals and drive towards objectives


James plans, organizes, schedules, measures and structures the decision-making process by directing and interacting with other people. He focuses on measurable goals. James thinks out loud, notices quickly when something is out of sequence or order, sets objectives and criteria for success, and creates step-by-step procedures. James looks to influence and organize the world around him, even when not solicited to do so.

(If the primary behavior is not enough then this is where James goes for answers)

What do the boxes represent?

These boxes represent the eight different introverted and extraverted mental functions defined by Carl Jung that determine your personality type of INTJ (eg. MBTI). We refer to them as Go-To boxes.

You use all eight Go-To boxes but we expect that you find certain ones easy and fun and others slow and tough.

Think of the box size as telling you how natural you are likely to find activities related to that mental function. The smaller the box, the more energy it will likely take you to do any related activities. The bigger the box, the more likely you are to get energy from doing related activities.

The largest box is your largest function or Superpower.

The boxes above the line are what other people see - they are extraverted. The boxes below the line are introverted and are below the surface.

If your main go-to box is introverted, your most commonly used mental function is invisible to others. If your main go-to box is extraverted, others cannot see your supporting introverted box.

James's largest go-to box is Connect, showing his strength of being able to see the big picture and its future implications based on data points that only he seems to connect together. Because Connect is below the line, what few people see are the connections that lead to his conclusion - the rest of the iceberg below the surface. James's supporting box is Execute, which is what others see: James organizing and directing others toward his goals. James's other three top boxes - Stabilize, Analyze and Value - are drafted to support his Connect function, which he experiences as his Superpower of Super Comprehension.

Look to the present and immediate needs and explore what is currently available
Stabilize
Look to the past, traditions and what worked and focus on consistency
Invent
Look to the new and different ideas and explore many possibilities
Connect
Look to how things connect, the future and predict possible outcomes
Execute
Decide based on measurable goals and drive towards objectives
Analyze
Decide based on logically correct or incorrect and evaluate the best approach
Consideration
Decide based on people's needs and empathize with others
Value
Decide based on ethically right or wrong and sync with individual values

Legal Trait Analysis

What it is:
Visually shows all 22 traits measured in the Sheffield Legal Assessment and how one scores on each scale. In the Personal Insight report for individuals, we compare to the averages for the thousands of attorneys in our constantly growing global attorney database. For the evaluation and management reports, we compare to the firm's averages.
Why it is important:
We all want to know how we compare to our peers, and this section helps individual attorneys understand how they differ from other lawyers, helping them to avoid biases created through assumptions of "everyone thinks like me…" For firm management, it outlines which trait(s) an individual differs from the firm’s trait norms, and in what way the individual differs.

Legal Traits Compared Against Attorneys Nationally

Both ends of each trait can be good, lower is not worse. Legal Traits are the traits from the Champions Assessment correlated with success in the business and practice of law.

Legal Career Satisfaction Score

Legal Career Satisfaction Score

What it is:
This section shows how the assessed individual compares to the trait patterns of thousands of attorneys in our database who report high career satisfaction. Our listing of practice areas and settings and how each one fits with an individual’s mental makeup will help determine what career choices may fit best with the individual’s personality. This section also details the core traits for each legal practice area listed and which traits are most distinctive, based upon our global data, for each area. From there, we detail your most similar and most different traits so that you can understand how you might fit in and where friction points might exist.
Why it is important:
Finding practice areas and settings that best match an individual’s personality will lead to happier workforces and lower attorney turnover. It also saves firms money on hiring and development and saves individuals years in practice areas or settings that don’t fit their individual mindset.

Satisfaction Score

This section provides insight as to which practice areas and work settings might be the best fit for James. Better fits are shown higher on each list, and are based upon trait patterns of thousands of attorneys and their reported satisfaction levels with their practice and work settings. The median score is 50 – satisfied with one’s work setting and practice area roughly half of the time. To be clear, this section is not saying that James couldn’t be successful in lower scoring practice areas or settings. Our research suggests, however, practice areas and settings with higher Satisfaction Scores will feel more natural. This section also refers to various types of law and practice areas. Curious about what attorneys in these practice areas do? Check out our resources page here for more information.

There are numerous good sources on the internet that describe these practice areas and what attorneys in each of these practices tend to do. One we find particularly good can be found here.

Career Planner

What it is:
Career success, personal satisfaction and overall fulfillment requires more than just choosing a practice area and setting with a high Satisfaction Score. Personality type plays a big role in finding a fit with any work environment and ensuring a good alignment between one’s strengths, values, type of work and work setting. This section details James’s natural abilities, core values and preferred work environments, including the cultural factors and management styles that will lead to a good fit.
Why it is important:
Poor alignment of one’s strengths and abilities to the work involved and the organization itself will lead to a miserable experience for all involved. The challenge is to find a career path that maximizes the use of one’s natural talents. Sounds obvious right? What makes this especially challenging is that in many higher-level professional careers, the type of work changes from hour-to-hour, day-to-day and week-to-week. A list of the natural talents and abilities common to individuals with James’s personality type is listed below; any new job, career or work setting that James is considering will hopefully leverage many of these natural talents and abilities.

Natural Abilities and Strengths for James's Personality Type

Type Code: INTJ

James's natural abilities and talents, when utilized, help him to perform better and enjoy his job more. Also, his success is generally more dependent on leveraging and capitalizing on his strong points rather than focusing on his weak point - it's his strong points and natural abilities that will bring James job satisfaction and success. James has probably already experienced something like this: When the work he does in his job or in school aligns well with his natural abilities, things start to go easier, move more smoothly, and he feels better about what he is working on or studying. The results usually come out much better. The opposite is also true, when the work he does or the subject he is studying is not well aligned with his natural abilities, things feel more difficult, stress levels increase and results are not so good. The key here is 'alignment'. Because most professional jobs involve several different types of work, some of the work he does may be well aligned and some may not. If he can move himself into a career path where most of the work is aligned with his natural abilities, he will be more successful and more satisfied
