Job Application

During an online Job application today I was forced to do a personality test.

"Your responses indicate that you are steady, conscientious and mild-mannered. You persistently work toward achieving accuracy, and you show a great deal of interest in issues concerning what you feel is right versus wrong. You are a loyal and unassuming perfectionist who desires security and clear guidelines. Your sensitivity to criticism and caution of the new is qualified by your use of gentle persuasion and firmness when making your position known. You may prefer a few close friends rather than many casual acquaintances.

Your responses indicate that your Emotional Intelligence is exceptionally well developed. You tend to understand the emotional makeup of others, and to accurately sense what other people are feeling. Because you find it easy to see the world from another person's perspective, it is likely that you associate with a diverse group of people. You work for reasons beyond money or status. It is likely that you are proficient in both maintaining relationships and networking. You think before speaking, and form carefully considered judgments about people or situations. Furthermore, you are aware of the impact of your emotions on others."

I'd say that's pretty deadon.

But now I'm knitting yet another Ipod cozy. I will get this pattern just right and then share with my knit sibs.

And of course I'm still struggling with my Turbulence Pullover. So far one shoulder has been sewn. I just need to buckle down and finish it!

The company I work for has prospective employees take a "test" like that as well. When I first had to do it I thought it was really bizarre. After getting my results I was amazed at how accurate it was. I did ask our human resources person about what they are looking for and she responded, "Oh, we're not looking for any particular traits, we're just trying to weed out the axe murderers."
