    INTEREST IN JOB CONTENT
    (Those tasks you want to perform)


    Preferences for Aylen fully support being perceptually, subconsciously, and consciously aware of fantasy, symbols, symbolic relationships, abstract ideas, options, and choice of options as they relate to creative or innovative activities. Perception triggers ideas in Aylen's mind, a process that just happens - a process often called intuition. It is not a conscious effort to logically "come up with" creative ideas; instead, the process is best identified with the statement that "a thought struck me." A quote by Carl Jung probably makes complete sense to Aylen: "Art is innate in the artist, like an instinct that seizes and makes a tool out of the human being. The thing in the final analysis that wills something in him is not he, the personal man, but the aim of the art."

    The paragraph above is an interpretation of your top trait in the "Interest in Job Content" section. The content in red below is a bonus section added to give you an idea of how much additional narrative information you would receive by purchasing any of our packages.


    TEMPERAMENT FOR THE JOB

    Aylen has a strong preference to work under the management or supervision of others who are competent and knowledgeable in their area of expertise. This also may indicate a preference to avoid work of an independent nature (i.e. self-directed, self-planned, self-managed). Performance, morale, energy, enthusiasm, and quality of work tend to reflect how satisfied Aylen is with the working environment as created and managed by the motivational and inspirational leadership of a manager, director, supervisor, or lead-person.

    The paragraph above is an interpretation of your top trait in the "Temperament for the Job" section. The content in red below is a bonus section added to give you an idea of how much additional narrative information you would receive by purchasing any of our packages.


    APTITUDE FOR THE JOB

    Aylen's preferences and motivations are derived from understanding the deeper or 'real' meaning of ideas and words and uses them effectively in written or oral communication. Literary in this factor means intentional search for ideas expressed by the minds of others for one's own use, assimilation, learning, etc. The source can be books, other publications, historical documents, research information, drama, movies, television, the "information highway" or internet, etc. Emphasis is on communication: picking up information from minds of others or communication aimed toward the minds of others. Journalism and writing are major activities. Literary activity is not exclusively intellectual, academic, or cultural. It may be an end in itself as in a bookworm for instance. And literary activity is not always accompanied by communicative activity, written or oral. On the other hand, communicative activity need not be literary in the classic sense. And one need not be persuasive to be communicative, but it helps. When the trait is highly motivated, as it is here, it suggests both literary and communicative abilities that are or could become a usable skill or a developed talent. By now you can see that only a review of all traits will clearly show the specific content of Aylen's literary and/or communicative preferences and motivations.

    The paragraph above is an interpretation of your top trait in the "Aptitude for the Job" section. The content in red below is a bonus section added to give you an idea of how much additional narrative information you would receive by purchasing any of our packages.


    PEOPLE

    Aylen feels both privilege and responsibility to use communication (including persuasion) to voluntarily provide beneficial information to others. This includes strongly motivated benevolent and literary traits. Self-satisfaction comes almost exclusively from the subjective realization that the information, voluntarily given, has been helpful to other persons. Aylen is further motivated to learn and understand the other person(s) needs wishes and listening preferences. Non-persuasive service communication can become persuasive and persistent when expressed in the interest of someone needing Aylen to stand up for them.

    THINGS

    Given the option to participate where an aptitude for manual labor or basic labor activities is required Aylen's preferences for participation is moderate. This type of activity involves easily used craft tools, repetitious activity, recognizable detail, outdoor physical exposure, and minor problem solving. It is most often a helper position that can be handled with minimum skill, training, instruction, or supervision. Please note the word "aptitude" which means ability to do something, with no mention or inference about whether the person wants to do it or gains satisfaction from it. It is, therefore, necessary to see other traits to determine if Aylen has supportive motivational levels for such work to be satisfying on a steady basis.

    The paragraph above is an interpretation of your top trait in the "Things" section. The content in red below is a bonus section added to give you an idea of how much additional narrative information you would receive by purchasing any of our packages.


    DATA

    "Synthesize: putting two or more things together to form a whole; the combination of separate elements of thought into a whole; the operation by which divided parts are united" (Webster). Aylen is motivated by seeing the big picture so much so that (s)he, attempts to see all parts of the picture in that larger context, then sees all parts relative to each other, but still within that larger context. Perception and thinking are therefore holistic and conceptual. Philosophical and intuitive processes are involved. Scientific, managerial, and/or literary preferences may also be involved. Other mental factors in this section are subordinate, secondary, or complementary to this primary motivational attribute. This is an overview and scanning activity that includes ideas, concepts, theory, fiction, hypothesis and assessment. (Note that words in the last sentence are unrelated to logic that Webster defines as "the science of the operations of the understanding subservient to the estimation of evidence.") For Aylen, preferences for this sort of synthesis will allow it to get no further toward logic than estimating.

    REASONING

    Aylen is strongly motivated to apply thinking to the big picture through holistic ideas, concepts, options, and strategies. This does not mean, suggest, or imply that thinking is kept only in a holistic context but it does mean that the first and constant priority or preference for consideration and focus are on the big picture. (Example: Aylen more likely prefers to be an executive rather than a manager, and more inclined to be a manager rather than a supervisor.) Considering how pieces of the picture are brought in to the big picture stimulates motivation for the activity.

    MATHEMATICAL CAPACITY

    Aylen prefers to consider math extending more toward theory, abstract concepts, experimental applications, etc. Because of the moderate motivational level for this theoretical activity, it is not likely that it would be satisfying as a primary vocation or have too heavy an emphasis. However, it remains a valuable asset that extends normal capability beyond usual activities.

    LANGUAGE CAPACITY

    Aylen is highly motivated to consider creative writing and communicating at professional levels. Preferences are holistic, conceptual, imaginative, and creative. "Ideas trigger more ideas" can probably be said about Aylen. High motivational levels for this worker trait indicate an interactive combination of literary and philosophical traits. As Dean W. R. Inge said, "Literature flourishes best when it is half a trade and half an art." That probably makes a great deal of sense to Aylen. Motivation at this level indicate preferences that probably include writing fiction, poetry, scripts for movies or television, advertising copy, marketing copy, teaching creative writing, etc.

    INTEREST IN JOB CONTENT

    Lungs enjoys social or vocational interaction with others but is not dependent on direct contact and association. If some work responsibilities or activities require functioning apart from others, it can be done without the need for social breaks to be with others. This flexibility is an asset in trade activities, operating machines or equipment, and in many technical and outdoors jobs.

    TEMPERAMENT FOR THE JOB

    Lungs has a strong preference to work under the management or supervision of others who are competent and knowledgeable in their area of expertise. This also may indicate a preference to avoid work of an independent nature (i.e. self-directed, self-planned, self-managed). Performance, morale, energy, enthusiasm, and quality of work tend to reflect how satisfied Lungs is with the working environment as created and managed by the motivational and inspirational leadership of a manager, director, supervisor, or lead-person.

    APTITUDE FOR THE JOB

    Lungs's preferences and motivations most likely revolve around an adequate ability to see, retain, and recall detail. Preferences and motivations do not fixate on detail or a vocational specialization based on detail. (NOTE: Awareness of detail at this level is a useful talent in functional, operational, or administrative activities).

    PEOPLE

    Lungs feels both privilege and responsibility to use communication (including persuasion) to voluntarily provide beneficial information to others. This includes strongly motivated benevolent and literary traits. Self-satisfaction comes almost exclusively from the subjective realization that the information, voluntarily given, has been helpful to other persons. Lungs is further motivated to learn and understand the other person(s) needs wishes and listening preferences. Non-persuasive service communication can become persuasive and persistent when expressed in the interest of someone needing Lungs to stand up for them.

    THINGS

    Lungs's motivational level supports the ability (either existing or because of pending training) to be perceptive and alert relative to monitoring operational processes by use of technical recording instruments. This includes remaining interested, alert and responsible throughout steady operational shifts. This activity could appropriately be called operational/clerical because it means monitoring what is going on.

    DATA

    Compiling means more than simply gathering large volumes of data sheets and stuffing them in a filing cabinet. It means that Lungs is motivated to find, identify, classify, store, remember, and retrieve what is important or what might be important for future use. (NOTE: This is crucial for researchers, technical writers, lawyers, academic teachers, consultants, systems engineers, and programmers). This trait indicates a subconscious preference we could refer to as a "packrat" orientation, i.e., if it glitters; stuff it in the nest along with everything else because it might be useful sometime. Other traits will indicate how motivated the individual is to be thorough, practical, and efficient within this area.

    REASONING

    Lungs is naturally motivated to use and apply rational formulas, rules, systems, and/or procedures to deal with concrete variables where only limited instructions or guidelines exist. Emphasis here is on solving operational or administrative PROBLEMS that develop in familiar areas. This is commonly known as 'troubleshooting' and Lungs has a natural preference for the mental procedure of doing so. Motivation is derived from a goal of getting the "train back on the track". Although silly, Lungs probably sees the point clearly illustrated in a poem where a foreman reports a train wreck: "Off again. On again. Gone Again. Finnegan." (NOTE: This trait requires onsite familiarity with operations, a sense or suspicion of where things might or could break down, and savvy about ways to fix the problem).

    MATHEMATICAL CAPACITY

    (NOTE: The Worker Trait Factor called computational should be called business math because it means everyday calculations related to over-the-counter or on-site business calculations or transactions. Representative of this is commercial transactions such as buying groceries at a store, lunch at a restaurant, or a plane ticket at an airport. It is primarily composed of addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and recording results). Given this, Lungs is highly motivated where activities call for computational math.

    LANGUAGE CAPACITY

    Motivational levels for Lungs support activities including word processing in its widest application: administrative, secretarial, editing, library referencing, management information systems, electronic transmission of information, etc. Preferences lean heavily toward proper language usage, spelling, punctuation, keyword identification, referencing, and cross-referencing. Attention to detail is essential and remains a motivational factor in vocational activity and success.

    my description for the paid version of this (which is the same questions) is linked (to my forum blog) from my Subterranean enneagram thread...but I tried to answer the questions again yesterday, so there'd be a comparable free version to compare to (which would just be much reduced, essentially). I found it impossible to answer a second time: I could not remember how I answered for many of the questions, and I had a feeling for some that I was answering in reverse order to before.

    The first time I took it, I tried to answer as it asked (by which I most liked the sound of, regardless of skill and experience etc.). But I found that when the option was "psychologist, counselor, or spiritual worker", I could not choose that option, because such a role would always be too emotionally taxing, and thus there would be no rationale to choose it. I didn't however consider that "psychologist" could have a research-only focus, and that avoiding such questions (teaching was another one!) might have a wider impact on my people orientated results.

    I think I also I tended to avoid the "theoretical" options, preferring the "ideas" or "procedure" ones: I think there was one that put theoretical + strategy vs. technical & scientific research. The "ideas" one/s didn't go into whether I was expected to come up with ideas, or refine ideas, or a combination of both (which might be more procedural). With "theory", if it is not of realistic utility (in the short to medium term), and if it is always going to be "theory", and not practical results, I am not going to enjoy it.

    There was a question which asked which of three clubs you would prefer, and one of the options was stock investment with friends (or similar). I thought this was a bad question, because of the nature of stock investing (it is not something that mixes well with group thinking!).

    (This is the equivalent of my "free version" description based on how I first answered):

    INTEREST IN JOB CONTENT

    Subteigh is most likely emotionally and sentimentally attached to the familiar, thus typically prefers routine, organized, and methodical procedures in all life activities. This indicates a resistance to, and quite possibly negative feelings toward, sudden or unannounced major changes. This is true even if provided more time, or exposure to the possibility or need of the change, Subteigh would accept or even desire such changes. When attachment to the familiar is strong, it is appropriately called the "homestead" trait, best described in the old cliche "Happiness is sleeping on your own pillow". Such routine activities can be mental, administrative, machine-paced, sensory/physical, etc.

    TEMPERAMENT FOR THE JOB

    Subteigh has a strong preference to work under the management or supervision of others who are competent and knowledgeable in their area of expertise. This also may indicate a preference to avoid work of an independent nature (i.e. self-directed, self-planned, self-managed). Performance, morale, energy, enthusiasm, and quality of work tend to reflect how satisfied Subteigh is with the working environment as created and managed by the motivational and inspirational leadership of a manager, director, supervisor, or lead-person.

    APTITUDE FOR THE JOB

    More than likely, all kinds and uses of numbers naturally make sense to Subteigh and a preference to work with numbers exists. (NOTE: Mathematical talent is as much a natural gift as artistic or musical talent, even though few people, acknowledge that fact. But it is readily acknowledged as a natural gift by those that have it as well as by those who don't.) Subteigh probably laughs, and understands exactly what is meant when Charles Schultz's Charlie Brown said, "How can you do new math with an old-math mind?") Subteigh's preferences lean heavily toward the conceptual, theoretical, analytical, and computational in the awareness, use and application of math. As such, math is an important vocational asset whether it is vocational specialization or vocational application.

    PEOPLE

    Subteigh feels both privilege and responsibility to use communication (including persuasion) to voluntarily provide beneficial information to others. This includes strongly motivated benevolent and literary traits. Self-satisfaction comes almost exclusively from the subjective realization that the information, voluntarily given, has been helpful to other persons. Subteigh is further motivated to learn and understand the other person(s) needs wishes and listening preferences. Non-persuasive service communication can become persuasive and persistent when expressed in the interest of someone needing Subteigh to stand up for them.

    THINGS

    Subteigh prefers activities where (s)he is able to exercise natural sensory/physical talents or abilities (to the extent that they exist) in feeding materials into machines, or offbearing materials from machines efficiently and steadily. Such activity is usually associated with assembly line processing. First of all, it requires tireless synchronizing of one's sensory/physical activity with the speed and characteristics of machine input or output. It also means little social interactions with others while functioning on-station. Given a full description of the vocational position where these elements exist, Subteigh's motivations are fully present (even if this may involve training for the activity or vocational position).

    DATA

    Subteigh is highly motivated for routine, factual, mathematical problems related to operational, procedural, or administrative activities. This includes good logic, analysis, and attention to detail. (NOTE: Business math may be motivated strongly enough to be the heart of professional or vocational activity, as a CPA or corporate accountant, for instance).

    REASONING

    Subteigh prefers routine tasks that are explained, demonstrated, and supervised in a familiar environment: Key motivational responsibilities may include dependability, a steady work record, thorough and clean performance, and trustworthiness relative to the property of others. (NOTE: Many maintenance positions are in this category, as are some temporary or seasonal jobs).

    MATHEMATICAL CAPACITY

    Subteigh's motivations fully support either natural talents or trained abilities with regard to excellent perception of detail and the ability to accurately create and process records related to that detail. (NOTE: This ability to steadily, consistently, and accurately identify and process detail relies on conscious and particularly subconscious talents). Clearly, preferences for Subteigh focus on detail related to data and numbers. Occupations requiring this level of motivation and/or natural or trained abilities include: pharmacists, registered nurses, transportation and distribution, switchboard operators, data processors, etc.

    LANGUAGE CAPACITY

    Subteigh has a unique motivation to carefully, thoroughly read simple explanatory or instructional statements (like the directions on the label of a soup can) and fully/accurately know what was said. (NOTE: This is not a widely shared trait. Unless the subject attracts the reader's attention in the first place, reading of elementary instructions is just scanning, and some information is probably overlooked, ignored, or bypassed. Subteigh should regard this unique asset as vocationally important.

    INTEREST IN JOB CONTENT (those tasks you want to perform)

    Preferences for inumbra fully support being perceptually, subconsciously, and consciously aware of fantasy, symbols, symbolic relationships, abstract ideas, options, and choice of options as they relate to creative or innovative activities. Perception triggers ideas in inumbra's mind, a process that just happens - a process often called intuition. It is not a conscious effort to logically "come up with" creative ideas; instead, the process is best identified with the statement that "a thought struck me." A quote by Carl Jung probably makes complete sense to inumbra: "Art is innate in the artist, like an instinct that seizes and makes a tool out of the human being. The thing in the final analysis that wills something in him is not he, the personal man, but the aim of the art."

    TEMPERAMENT FOR THE JOB (how you prefer to perform tasks)

    (NOTE: "Evaluation: to appraise carefully; to judge as to worth or amount; to estimate generally.") Most likely, inumbra has a logical mind which "makes sense" of what is perceived regarding the big picture and pieces of the picture within the context of that big picture. It is evaluation or assessment after perception, not the process of perception itself. Emphasis is on patterns, linkage, and relationships. Intuition may be involved in conjunction with this evaluation/assessment process.

    APTITUDE FOR THE JOB (expression of performing tasks)

    Philosophical, cultural, scientific, literary, managerial, and/or computational work, more than likely, represent very important types of mental activities for inumbra. Being capable in those activities, inumbra's mind is naturally receptive to consider abstract ideas, theory, concepts, inquiry, exploration, analysis, logic, systems, and procedures. Factors in this aptitude section, plus the data and reasoning sections show the degree of motivation and talent inumbra has for each of those mental activities. High rating for this trait indicates an intellectual orientation that is functional in, or has potential for, academic, scientific, research, literary, executive, or consulting activities.

    PEOPLE

    inumbra feels both privilege and responsibility to use communication (including persuasion) to voluntarily provide beneficial information to others. This includes strongly motivated benevolent and literary traits. Self-satisfaction comes almost exclusively from the subjective realization that the information, voluntarily given, has been helpful to other persons. inumbra is further motivated to learn and understand the other person(s) needs wishes and listening preferences. Non-persuasive service communication can become persuasive and persistent when expressed in the interest of someone needing inumbra to stand up for them.

    THINGS (i'm really not sure i agree with this...)

    inumbra has natural preferences related to mechanical, technical, or systems engineering. It includes natural mechanical savvy about "what makes things tick" and motivation to design, assemble, build, install, or operate machines, equipment, or systems. Engineering may or may not be the major vocational activity.

    DATA (i have some experience with data and am interested in the different ways to work with it - i feel i haven't found my "voice"/style here yet - but i can say i find data rather fascinating in the sense of looking for meaningful patterns)

    Compiling means more than simply gathering large volumes of data sheets and stuffing them in a filing cabinet. It means that inumbra is motivated to find, identify, classify, store, remember, and retrieve what is important or what might be important for future use. (NOTE: This is crucial for researchers, technical writers, lawyers, academic teachers, consultants, systems engineers, and programmers). This trait indicates a subconscious preference we could refer to as a "packrat" orientation, i.e., if it glitters; stuff it in the nest along with everything else because it might be useful sometime. Other traits will indicate how motivated the individual is to be thorough, practical, and efficient within this trait.

    REASONING

    inumbra is strongly motivated to apply thinking to the big picture through holistic ideas, concepts, options, and strategies. This does not mean, suggest, or imply that thinking is kept only in a holistic context but it does mean that the first and constant priority or preference for consideration and focus are on the big picture. (Example: inumbra more likely prefers to be an executive rather than a manager, and more inclined to be a manager rather than a supervisor.) Considering how pieces of the picture are brought in to the big picture stimulates motivation for the activity.

    MATHEMATICAL CAPACITY (not sure i agree with this...)

    Statistical, investigative use of mathematics plays a major role in what motivates inumbra. This kind of math is valuable for many kinds of engineering activities: mechanical, systems, hydraulic, geological, computer, etc. Methodical, logical, pragmatic, and objectivism are central to the activity. Computers are typically essential for this work. The above examples of activities and descriptions most likely represent an ideal environment.

    LANGUAGE CAPACITY

    inumbra is highly motivated to consider creative writing and communicating at professional levels. Preferences are holistic, conceptual, imaginative, and creative. "Ideas trigger more ideas" can probably be said about inumbra. High motivational levels for this worker trait indicate an interactive combination of literary and philosophical traits. As Dean W. R. Inge said, "Literature flourishes best when it is half a trade and half an art." That probably makes a great deal of sense to inumbra. Motivation at this level indicate preferences that probably include writing fiction, poetry, scripts for movies or television, advertising copy, marketing copy, teaching creative writing, etc.

    i really want to take it again with more care because it's more specific than a lot of career assessment stuff i've taken and the questions were kind of helpful in some way that helped me think in a more structured away about the "job world," but i'm too lazy to make a throw away email account. (ugh. maybe i should...) i'd also like to know if i'd get similar results the second time. because i feel like i was "interfacing" well with how this test works but it could just all be in my mind.
