Your Work Style

It surprises me when an online quiz is accurate because I’m leery of people being pigeonholed in forty or so questions. Years ago I worked in a bookstore, and I almost didn’t get the job because I flunked the psychological test.
One of the questions I got wrong was “Do you want to be the best real estate salesperson in Canada?” Duh? What does that have to do with books, or my psychological suitability for that matter?
Anyway, I tried this online quiz about work style at monster.com, and I thought it was pretty accurate. Apparently there are nine different types in order of commonality: Thinker, Achiever, Organizer, Visionary, Mentor, Advocate, Dynamo, Motivator and Individualist. According to the quiz, I’m a visionary. While I associate that word with someone like a Mahatma Gandhi or a Martin Luther King, the description certainly seemed to suit me.
And I was pleased that I was closer to the top than to the bottom. Even though I get on well with other people, the population on Planet Artopia has always been sparse, so I never feel like I really fit in. Maybe I’m not as peripheral as I think I am.
