Facilities Maintenance Assistant
Are you an impatient person but reasonably proactive once you are an expert in a subject matter? Are you driven to be accurate and will correct others on “how it should be” if they are remotely off in their comments? When given new areas to research, do you become restless in the pursuit of factual information? Are you so skeptical that you have to be shown the resource to find it believable? Do others become frustrated with you because of your “prove it” mindset? Is your communication style more informative and factual than social? Do you have a fear of failing or being wrong? Is it easier to be safe than sorry for you? Do you like being the resident expert in matters that you are very familiar with? Do you feel like you would rather just do things yourself because no one can do it better than you?
