The Africa Federation Women’s Board (AFWB) in collaboration with the KSI Jamaat of Arusha held a workshop on Saturday 18th January 2014 for ladies on “KNOWING YOUR PERSONALITY”
The workshop was conducted by Sister Zainab Hasnain Khimji from Nairobi, who was in Arusha on a private visit.
Sister Zainab Khimji is a Montessori trained teacher with 20 years of experience in teaching. She works with children with special needs. She has also specialized in communication skills and with her keen interest; she has done a lot of research in different types of personalities.
At this Workshop, there was a self-assessment session done by each participant, which determined their personality.
Zainab bai presented to the participants the four different personality types and explained in details on the following.
All human beings have different drives, abilities and personalities. When we know who we are and why we act the way we do, we begin to understand our inner selves, improve our personalities and learn to get along with others.
Your personality is entirely up to you. It is in the actions you take and the decisions you make. The only way to change your personality is to take active steps to become the person you want to be.
Taking up a hobby is a great way to become well rounded and improve your personality. Sports can make you stronger, arts and crafts can make you patient, and volunteering can make you caring. Even just reading a book can push you to be better.
Being positive and upbeat can influence everyone around you, and so can negativity. For example, a friendly smile to a stranger can brighten up their day, as a glare can frighten them and cause their mood to drop. Like the famous quote, “Do unto others as you would have them do to you”.
While you may not be able to help it if you are having a bad day or if you don’t like doing a particular thing, changing your attitude changes everything.
Understanding examples of personality traits is a great way to start the journey into self -discovery. Remember, if you’re up for the challenge, you can make positive changes to your personality type.
The Workshop was attended by 34 ladies and the feedback received was very encouraging with 100% of the participants stating that they would attend such programs in future.
The Africa Federation Women Board appreciates Sister Zainab’s keen and selfless services and her efforts in conducting the session and sharing her vast experience with the ladies of Arusha Jamaat. We pray for her long and healthy life with abundance of happiness and successes, Ameen.
