I was on another networking site...YES there are others! hehe ... and someone posted this link:
This is one of the few personal assessments that doesn't take an hour to complete. I was rather surprised at how I was assessed specially considering my stage fright issue. haha!
Here is what I got:
Congratulations Diana, you are a Director.
In a moment, you’re going to learn how to use this information to improve all your personal and professional communication and get exactly what you want from everybody you deal with.
An Overview of your Director Behavioral Style Here are some traits found in Directors. Some of these you’re going to look at and say, "Hey, that sounds just like me!" Others you might say, "No, I’m not like that." Most of these traits are in your personality, but sometimes, for various reasons, you may not exhibit all of them. Not everyone fits perfectly within these descriptors, but do try to keep an open mind as you read them. Remember, it is perfectly natural to behave differently at work than you do with your family and friends.
# You work impressively by yourself and require very little external motivation to achieve your goals.
# You tend to make quick decisions as soon as you see the benefits of a product or service. You move forward confidently, even if the decision was not 100% correct, knowing you can make mid-course corrections.
# You dislike working with people who are wishy-washy or slow to take action. You gain energy by working with confident, intelligent people.
# You prefer work that gives you opportunities to measure your results against other people or competitors.
# You are not a patient listener. You view "chit-chat" as an interruption in your day.
# Others view you as a natural leader. You are comfortable taking command of groups, boards and meetings.
# At work, your primary focus is on winning, results and forward progress.
# You like new "toys"… especially if they save you time or help you accomplish more.
# You cannot stand traffic jams, long lines or anything else that triggers your natural impatience.
Are you a Socializer or a Director? A Thinker or a Relator?
Does your specific work personality help or hinder you in your field and how?
Just some things to think about as I forge through with cultivating my entrepreneurial spirit.
