Personality fit???


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:

  1. A go getterI 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
Remember the graph I was talking about in the beginning of this post, well, I drafted one and may be this is how it should look like and people falling on the graph are ideal fit for MBA and rest are not (what do you guys think??):

Pour in your thoughts people. Collectively we can solve the mysteries of the world.
P.S. The graph is inspired by Efficient Frontier Theory 🙂
