I don’t understand this Psychology question and need help to study.

I believe that understanding one’s own personality type plays a big part in how we interact with the world, and it can be a useful tool to help us reflect on the strengths and limitations of the counseling profession (Granello & Young, 2019). This self-reflection tool allows us to see what possible strengths and weaknesses we have, but also allows us a better understanding on how to better interact with others. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator is a great starting point for counselors who seek to know more about their personality. Personalities have huge influences on career choices, it helps us determine if the job/career would be a good fit for us.
The assessment sorts the individual as being an Introvert/ Extrovert, Intuitive/sensing, thinking/feeling and judging/perceiving. Despite which personality the counselor is, every personality will have its strengths and weaknesses. Having an understanding of how you view the world, can help you and the client build an effective client-patient relationship.
