One of the recent job applications I did included a personality assessment thing, that it later sent me. This is what it said:
You would be described as very competitive, enterprising, assertive, determined and goal oriented. You may
often display new and creative ways to reach your objectives. You will be self-evaluative and critical of your
own performance. Given an objective, you would be able to develop your own plan, manage your time and
focus your effort on a daily basis to reach your goals. Being a self-manager comes naturally to you, and as
such you are able to work with limited guidance and direction. You are able to motivate yourself without
frequent input from the management and will work well with a manager who coaches and consults rather than
Your motivation is balanced between your concern for the needs of other people and meeting the long and
short term goals you have set for yourself. You are most comfortable in situations that offer the opportunity
to do both. You would enjoy working in an environment where you are able to meet short term targets which
lead to your longer term objectives.
You tend to be quite comfortable in situations where there is potential for conﬂict. You may even occasionally
create conﬂict to further your own goals. Comfort with conﬂict can be a strength and is often found in
competitive people but it can also be a trait that is difﬁcult for some managers to handle.
You are quite sociable, cheerful, friendly and outgoing. You are able to build relationships and friendships
without difﬁculty and are quite comfortable with other people. You will be able to work well in an environment
where there is regular contact with others. Generally, you would be a good company representative and have
the ability to communicate with a wide variety of people in a number of different functions.
You would be described as quite logical, analytical, factual and practical. A role requiring the solving of
intellectual or conceptual problems would interest you. You would tend to enjoy technically oriented and
detailed work. You pay attention to detail and would examine the issues until you feel satisﬁed that you
understand them. Often you are interested in learning for its own sake and dealing with complex, challenging
issues would be a motivating factor for you. You would be quite comfortable in a business culture that has a
signiﬁcant problem solving component.
You have healthy self conﬁdence, which allows you to feel that you're able to handle most situations through
your own efforts. You accept responsibility for your own performance and expect to succeed in most things
that you attempt. You also handle most stressful situations quite well. Urgent projects, deadlines and criticisms
would normally be dealt with effectively. Your ability to cope with a stressful work environment may even
enhance your performance in challenging situations.
