  15. 15. 1 Mentoring Up: Pro-actively managing your relationship with your research mentor by assessing and applying your strengths Steve Lee, PhD; stnlee@ucdavis.edu AISES Leadership Summit 2014 Graduate Diversity Officer for the STEM Disciplines Santa Ana Pueblo, NM University of California, Davis March 21, 2014 • Individual Activity: adapted Myers-Briggs test for introverts/extroverts from www.humanmetrics.com o Select the answer that more accurately reflects your preferred behavior. Yes No You enjoy having a wide circle of acquaintances. You’re usually the first to react to sudden events and surprises. You easily tell new people about yourself. You spend your leisure actively socializing with groups of people, attending parties, shopping, etc. You rapidly get involved in the social life of a new workplace. The more people with whom you speak, the better you feel. It is easy for you to speak loudly. You enjoy being at the center of events in which other people are directly involved. You feel at ease in a crowd. It is easy for you to communicate in social situations. Totals o Scoring: add up the number of statements with which you answered “Yes” and “No”. Extroverts will tend to answer Yes to most of these statements, and Introverts will tend to answer No. • Success Types by John Pelley < http://www.ttuhsc.edu/SOM/success/ > Well-developed type skills Underdeveloped type skills Extraversion Active approach Bring breadth Introversion Reflective approach Bring depth Extraversion Hyperactive Superficial Introversion Withdrawn & secretive Overly serious What the Types Can Offer Each Other EXTRAVERTS • Provide the outwardly directed energy needed to move into action • Offer responsiveness to what is going on in the environment • Have a natural inclination to converse and to network INTROVERTS • Provide the inwardly directed energy needed for focused reflection • Offer stability from attending to deep ideas, and listening to others • Have a natural tendency to think and work alone
  16. 16. 2 • Group Activity: read the case study and answer the following questions Dan’s start in graduate school has not been as auspicious as he had hoped. He had applied to multiple top-tier research universities, but wasn’t admitted into any of his favorite schools. He was finally admitted into his “safety school” that was his last resort, and was grateful for the opportunity. But even here he struggled to find a research advisor. He spoke with many professors, but was disappointed when most faculty told him that tightened research budgets limited the number of students that they could accept. Things seemed to finally turn a corner when Dan met Dr Nevan, a new assistant professor who invited him into her research group. After Dan joined Dr Nevan’s group, he began having trouble understanding her expectations and goals for his research. This is particularly frustrating for Dan, because he’s very friendly and gets along with most people. He has weekly meetings with her, where he tells her all about his ups and downs from his research progress, along with complications and successes. Dan is aware that he’s communicative and talkative, so he believes that he’s doing a good job with informing her about his research progress. But recently she asked him questions that surprised him, because he didn’t realize that she had wanted something else. Dan just wishes that she would explain more clearly what she wants and expects, so that they can work better together. But she doesn’t seem to say much during their meetings, and seems withdrawn from Dan’s perspective. Questions: o Introduce yourselves in your group, and share your results from the test for introverts and extroverts. Do you think the test and the tables helped you to determine or confirm your preference to be an introvert or extrovert? o From the case study, do you think Dan is an introvert or extrovert? Explain your reasoning, referring to details mentioned in the case study. o Do you think Dr Nevan is an introvert or extrovert? Explain your reasoning. o How might Dan adapt to improve his understanding of Dr Nevan’s expectations for his research? How might Dan use his strengths from his MB type? ─ What underdeveloped type skills (see tables above for some ideas) might Dan need to address as he considers how to improve communications with his research mentor? o What hints from the case study indicate that Dan isn’t accurately assessing himself? • Thanks for coming to my workshop!
