Business Terms

Joe has an average understanding of business terminology obtained either on the job or in a business class.
Memory Recall

Mr. Applicant has a superior knowledge of events happening in the world around him and should be strongly aware of competitive trends, as well as the economy's affect on business.
Vocabulary

Mr. Applicant's language skills are above average, enabling him to communicate effectively. He is capable of highly complex interchanges and will exhibit confidence in his ability to interact with others.

Mechanical Interest

Joe shows some interest in machines and is probably willing to devote extra time to learn the technology used at work. Please note that this mental aptitude measures interest, not mechanical ability.
----- Personality Structure -----
Energy

Mr. Applicant has a good level of energy and takes an energetic approach to work and other matters. He has a high drive level, but is generally able to control energy sufficiently to concentrate and accomplish assignments in a timely, yet effective manner.
Flexibility

Joe is flexible, free-thinking, innovative and highly creative. He likes to generate and implement new and exciting applications to existing products or services, and may at times overlook quality control procedures or company guidelines to meet deadlines more expediently. Since he can easily adapt to change, he is able to respond to multiple demands or assignments without becoming frustrated. However, his sense of integrity, compliance and ethics may not be as high as desired, and it is important that he know exactly what is expected of him, as well as how far outside the boundaries he is allowed to go. If he understands the rules and guidelines he must work within, the likelihood that he will be careless and unfocused in his activities will be greatly reduced.
Organization

Mr. Applicant does not place an emphasis on organization. He prefers to react to circumstances as they present themselves, and may not make good use of the time and resources he has available to reach organizational goals and priorities. Even though he can adapt to interruptions and deadline changes with ease, he can also easily lose sight of priorities. A high score in Mental Acuity may compensate for a low score in this dimension.
Communication

Joe is a very interactive communicator who seldom tires of sharing ideas and information with others. He may not listen to, or take seriously, what other people are saying, however. He comfortably articulates thoughts to people, genuinely enjoys being around people and would be unhappy working alone.

Name:Joe ApplicantDate:8/31/2006
Company: ABCPage:3
Emotional Dev

Mr. Applicant has a good level of self-confidence and self-esteem, but not so much as to be unrealistic. He is willing to wait a reasonable time for results without becoming upset or frustrated.
Assertiveness

Joe is an authoritative, assertive individual who does not hesitate to express his own opinions and stand up for his beliefs. He likes control and responsibility, and will attempt to influence others and direct activities. Since he can forcefully express his opinions and viewpoints, he may appear overly aggressive and demanding, at times.
Competitiveness

Mr. Applicant has a strong competitive drive and desire to compete, and takes pride in winning. Although he will participate in a team competitive effort, he particularly enjoys situations which allow him to compete on his own. He will be a strong competitor, always prepared to meet or exceed his goals and win.
Mental Toughness

Joe is a very sensitive individual who has a great deal of empathy for customers, co-workers and others. He likes to work in comfortable surroundings and prefers to avoid job situations which require that he work long hours to accomplish organizational objectives or meet critical deadlines. He is concerned about others and may allow his feelings to get in the way of good judgment.
Questioning /Probing

Joe is a trusting individual who accepts most instructions, directives and information at face value. Even though he usually exhibits a positive, enthusiastic attitude, he can allow others to take advantage of his good nature. If he does not always probe deeply enough into matters, he may be less-than-effective when faced with problem-solving or troubleshooting issues which need to be resolved.
Motivation

Being motivated by recognition for his achievements, Joe is willing to take risks if the potential for profit and recognition exists. He will also take quick, decisive personal action on important goals, work long hours and put forth extra effort if he believes rewards for doing so will be made available to him.

    Development Suggestions
    Introduction


    The behavior of each individual is influenced by genetics, biochemistry and environment. The individual's scores related in this assessment depict the individual as of the date and time the individual took the assessment.

    Major changes in biochemistry and/or environment can change the scores on the assessment. Effective training and/or development that the individual is exposed to can and should also affect scores.

    Consequently, for those individuals who seek to achieve higher levels of productivity and success in their jobs and life, and for those employers who desire such for the people they employ, we have carefully reviewed the training and development materials available in the marketplace and have selected for recommendation those that we deem appropriate to suggest in areas where the person assessed could benefit most from growth and development.

    We trust that you will find these suggestions helpful.

    Flexibility - Measures the flexibility and integrity orientation of the person compared to rules, laws, guidelines, etc.

    You are a highly flexible individual who adapts easily to change and is able to handle a multitude of different demands or assignments. You are a free-thinker who likes to generate different ways of accomplishing objectives, as well as new ideas. Being flexible, however, you do not like someone else telling you what to do or how to do it, especially if you are under pressure and deadlines. Since you may, at times, sacrifice quality in order to get the job done, it is important that you understand the reasons behind rules and guidelines. If you understand the boundaries you must work within, you will be more likely to stay focused on your goals.
    Your self-affirmation sentence:

    "I am flexible, but will work within necessary boundaries."
    Steps to Effect Change
    1. You will be more willing to adhere to certain policies, procedures, practices and regulations if you "buy" into them. To accomplish this, you must understand the reasons behind the rules in order to see how they will ultimately benefit you.
    2. From a career or leisure activity standpoint, you should seek activities which allow you the freedom to make your own decisions and avoid rigid, rule-oriented settings.
    3. You should maintain an attitude of working to always follow through on what you say, or commit yourself to, without vacillating.
    4. Disciplining yourself through controls such as developing and sticking to a budget, keeping a list of things you must accomplish each day, etc., will ensure you are not overly lenient and liberal with yourself.

    Organization - Measures a person's attitude about organization, planning, how tasks are performed and how one's life is lived.

    Planning your time and activities in advance does not come naturally to you. Since your plans are not always thorough, you may not take full advantage of the time and resources you have available to you to reach goals and objectives. A high score in Mental Acuity may help you compensate for a low score in this dimension.
    Your self-affirmation sentence:

    "I am organized in my life so I achieve more."
    Steps to Effect Change
    1. Good time and space management calls for a specific activity plan to identify priorities by the day or week. For sixty days, list daily plans on paper, then mentally list the six most important things to be done the following day, ranking them by priority, and the time allotted to each item. You will then have a good grasp of what must be done, prior to beginning each day.
    2. To avoid losing track of important details you might need for certain tasks, such as filing your income tax, good recordkeeping is mandatory. Select a certain place to keep important records and discipline yourself to always put important papers in that one location.
    3. Daily, weekly and monthly planning - even yearly planning - will help keep you on an organized and productive basis. Set goals and reach them.
    4. Avoid any distractions which take you off track. If necessary, tell people around you what you are attempting to accomplish, so you will be less likely to be interrupted.

    Communication - Measures introversion vs. extroversion and the ability to meet and deal with people.

    You are a very interactive communicator who seldom tires of sharing ideas and information with others. You may not listen to, or take seriously, what other people are saying, however. You comfortably articulate thoughts to people, genuinely enjoy being around people and would be unhappy working alone.
    Your self-affirmation sentence:

    "I listen well."
    Steps to Effect Change
    1. Your priority is to learn not to be overly talkative at any time, especially at the wrong time.
    2. Role playing can take place to stress the need for allowing others to take their turn communicating. An overly talkative individual should especially take heed not to divulge confidential information to others.
    3. People who are too sociable can over talk at the expense of others and true communication can suffer because of it. When in a discussion with someone, periodically ask yourself if you are responding to everything the other person is saying with a "story" of your own. If you are, there's a good chance you're thinking about what you want to say next, rather than really listening to what the other person is saying.
    4. Pay close attention to your actions to see if you find yourself interrupting others or monopolizing the conversation. One clue that you are not a good listener is when misunderstandings frequently occur when the other person says they told you something, but you don't remember. Developing good listening skills begins by admitting that such skills are needed.
