Are you often perceived as being impatient, even though you’ve actually thought out your actions? Are you an outgoing, socially oriented person who is energized by being with people? Do you prefer the wide open landscape of working on projects rather than the day-to-day chore of repetitive tasks? Are you comfortable with taking calculated risks? Are you self-sufficient and dislike delegation because no one could do the way you want it to be done anyway? Are you process and people oriented with a knack for setting up systems which are able to effectively guide people and the course of action selected?
