At my request K asked him if he would mind doing a profile of me, too, and he agreed. For better or worse, here are the results:
GREEN = "Controlling", defined as: Bottom-line-oriented, results-oriented, initiates and delegates.
To a point I agree: I've found that if I concentrate on being results-oriented and doing the "right thing", the bottom-line will take care of itself. And I am an excellent "delegator" once I built a first-class team around me. I'm thinking I might should have been given a bit higher score here.
RED = "Social", defined as: Fun, doesn't take life too seriously, energetic, life of the party.
I'm "funny", but I'm not necessarily fun. I don't thrive in large, crowded settings....I'm uncomfortable. I blend in. I'm fairly low-key and relaxed. My modest score here seems fair.
YELLOW = "Peaceful", defined as: Loyal and supportive, high tolerance, keep the peace, maintain relationships, slow to change.
No argument from me on this. (Pardon the pun ;) I am very loyal and supportive, tolerant of other's stupid, moronic ideas, I do value long-term relationships, and I am slow to change. *sniff....I so miss my yellow pad and #2 pencils* I also think all my positive answers regarding diplomacy and tact show here, too. (And yes, I am tactful, except when talking about politicians and bankers. ;)
And finally, BLUE = "Methodical", defined as: Zero tolerance, perfectionist, detail oriented, slow to change, not spontaneous, asks many questions.
I totally pegged blue!
Umm....how can you have both "high tolerance" (see yellow above) and "zero tolerance"? I am very detail oriented, and I do ask a lot of questions, especially "why".
I think I have an abundance of common sense, which translates into being able to size up most situations and decide logically what will work and what won't, or who to trust and who not to, and then make decisions accordingly and delegate.
So using this personality profile, if you were a guidance counselor, which career would you recommend for me....a third-world dictator, a Vegas headliner, a transcendental meditation instructor, or a sniper?
