    According to this quiz I am not a good salesman so would be unable to sell your woodwork. My hand is not steady so I could not cut the groove. All this strategic thinking but few clear ways to implement irl...so many obstacles. blah There is a disconnect somewhere between my st and communication skills. I will find a way to merge them. It may all come together on my deathbed. Hindsight is 20/20.

    * You do not like to be supervised closely - make sure others are aware of this.
    * You might empire-build, upset colleagues, get off-focus, ignore commitments - be aware and try to avoid.
    * You may tend to intimidate others with up-front, aggressive style - let them know it is not personal.

    * Create a simple way to measure cumulative production - keep tabs and grow.
    * Keep slackers away - they are annoying and will bog you down.
    * Too much rest or an easy assignment is not good motivation for you.
    * Live in the recognition for an achievement and then move on to new stretch goal.
    * Promotion might not be the best idea - do more of what you do well and do it well!


    I was sort of surprised to see "Leadership" as one of my top strengths. Though it's true I like to be independent and dislike having someone "above" me giving me orders. (Te PoLR)
    I do enjoy making use of my Social instinct and directing people in groups on occasion.
