    This was interesting, but anything based on self examination and self reporting is unfortunately open to massive issues or people just flat out lying.

    The trick is to not really think about the questions and just answer them ASAP, this tends to make the responses much more accurate without all the second-guessing and self-editing.

    We all did StrengthsFinder at work and it was interesting to see the results. The previous accountant, my assistant and I all had our top traits in common, which was gratifying.

    In addition to listing ways to improve/use your own strengths to your advantage, you can also read others’ strength profiles to get suggestions for ways to work with them, which is neat.

    Seems pretty accurate.

    The 538 one is fairly short. Ideally you have a lot of redundant questions to cover the bases.

    Oh yeah, survey in general is pretty lossy, but I liked that one because it was at least based on something and free. 16 personalities has some nice descriptions for Myers Briggs.
    I could probably write a book on organizational measurement and behavioral stuff, but the tldr is to commit to open and honest discussion and change of workflows after one of these or it's a waste of time.

    C'est Moi:

    Openness to experience 63 out of 100
    Agreeableness 46 out of 100
    Conscientiousness 58 out of 100
    Negative emotionality 50 out of 100
    Extraversion 38 out of 100

    Seems about right, pretty middle of the road if a bit introverted.

    Self report is surprisingly reliable at times. The Myers-Briggs has specifically been run through the ringer 8 million times and shown to be very reliable. It is definitely accurately measuring something. It absolutely is not personality in any meaningful way as has been demonstrated in tons of studies. I find your assessment to be pretty much spot on. The results are kinda dumb in a vacuum for all of these tests in my personal and professional opinion. If they spark a conversation that helps people understand each others work habits better then that is super awesome and makes it all worthwhile.

    Everything was middle of the board for me except two:

    Openness to Experience: 100 out of 100
    Extraversion: 12 out of 100

    Oh and I was also veering strongly towards depression because of course I would be.

  • AistanAistan Tiny Bat Registered User regular
    Maybe the quiz is ok but the analysis is weird. One of the categories said that maybe it means i'm a conservative authoritarian... or not, because who can tell how individual people react to these aspects?

    So you're saying that it doesn't actually show anything, cool thanks.

    I still prefer the quiz I like to ask new hires.

    Ozzy, Dio or Martin Sabbath?
    David Lee Roth, Sammy Hagar or Cherone Van Halen?
    Halford or Owens Judas Priest?

    There are wrong answers.

    Uhhh...I know one of the names on this list. By which I mean I know at least one song done by them, not just that I recognize the name.

    It's Ozzy. And Crazy Train.

    Well, what's your favorite Black Sabbath song by David Lee Roth, Sammy Hagar or Gary Cherone?
    It's "Tomorrow's Dream" with David Lee Roth.

    Here I Go Again was their only #1 and Is This Love was their only #2. Are you looking at the Mainstream Rock charting instead of their Hot 100 charting?

    One of the rules I have is whomever is doing high dollar picks the music {the other support plays his playlist which is basically that 90's serious acoustic genre} SO most of the time it's classic 70's and 80's rock with a random 2000's song
    But I learned that Nightranger and other bands had more than one hit from this.

    Some of the grey area rules I don't care about you using ear plugs as long as you have it in one ear and don't ruin it for everyone. The same goes for phone use don't overuse it or get caught.


    The Ugly because of how nasty Friday and how my manager low balled me I had to stay after. SO while getting chewed out I pointed out how he puts the D list people on the double trucks and the half shift. I was told to write up the people not pulling their weight. I said why that doesn't help the situation. G is basically a one trick pony. He can do Coffee and not much else. I only ended up with him because he was meh on overnights. I was asked who else or a break down of why I rank people S A B C D. I was told because we are getting the scanning drone next month next week or within two weeks later we are getting people from the day shift. I asked can I get T? You would have to fight C for him[ fine by me {C has pissed off various members of my crew off for stupid reasons}

    But I am going to print all the TMATS for the week and show my manager why stacking the D list people on double trucks is bad sighting the last two weeks

    Which feels pretty right for me, except for openness for experience it pinged me low on "intellectual curiosity" and it's like, lol you clearly don't know me quiz.

    Edit: Reading more closely the conclusions it comes to from these results are dumb as shit though. It thinks I am a "highly religious, politically conservative, theater kid" Three strikes and you are out buddy.
