So this job isn't hard enough...and lately, my friends, it has been 'nads to the wall kinda hard...now we're in the personal assessment and development plan part of the year. oh. yay. |
So, have done the long, long secret divining all aspects of your personality test and shocker, they nailed me -- everything the little report says is true, true, true. Too pragmatic, too goal-focused, too self-reliant, struggle with authority, struggle with conformity, struggle with organization. On the other hand, matched up against job qualifications, which they did on a handy dandy chart, I should excel in this job. Whew, sure doesn't FEEL like it!
I'd like to be less of an open book. Everyone else was all shocked and disputing parts of their report...I'm sitting there thinking, gee, that's eerie, how it matches what I would have guessed as my strengths and weaknesses. I don't know if that makes me self-aware. It certainly sounds like yet another obnoxious trait. The biggest surprise I had was that I'm very social. Erk? Well, I guess I already get my fill, since I crave a deserted island, a deep cave (with electricity) an isolated mountaintop.
I'd like to be more suprising, more subtle. It's annoying to look at the description of your astrological sign and think...sigh, okay, ya got me, but I really don't like the color yellow or orange.
And now I'm supposed to come with a personal development plan to become a more creative and strategic thinker. Sure, my boss couldn't pick a slam-dunk like "be more organized"...no, he's got to go for something vague, ill-defined, hard to quantify and measure. Sigh.
Personally, becoming more handy with firearms sounds like a better goal for me.
