I have a very basic question here. Is there any specific and definable personality which is ideal for MBA and a personality which is not at all ideal for MBA. Can we design a graph may be to represent the ideal personalities who should go for MBA and who should NOT. Why I am asking this?? Because I want to know what the junta perceives about it and then may be analyse myself also on those parameters and see where do I stand. Sometimes I think I am way off than normal people are and I wonder should I be doing not-so-normal things and hey I don’t even know what those things are!
Yeah, you guessed it right, I am C.O.N.F.U.S.E.D and I am at a very strange crossroad at this point in my life and I really need to make the right decision. What if I am not made for MBA and I could do something better like I could become a writer (which is a dream btw) and what if I go for an MBA now and realise that it was not for me? That would be a very expensive realization.
Let me tell you what I think of an MBA personality and lets see what do you guys think:
- A go getter – I am but in spurts. I mean some days I am so lazy that I don’t want to do a thing and don’t want to think about anything at all.
- A visionary, someone who can plan well ahead for future and see things clearly – I think I am more of a short to mid term thinker.
- Very ambitious – Now here I want to ask that are only type A personalities good for MBA (to know about types A,B and AB personality click here). I am surely type AB professionally and I hang more towards Type B personally.
- Entrepreneurial mindset – How important is this trait? I think I can always dig in to get some great ideas and have a great eye for execution.
