Promotion, Promotion, (Self) Promotion


Well, I'm pleased to say I am now an accredited user of 'the test' I referred to in my last post. I'm also prepared to say that my cynicism was largely unfounded. The pyschometric test was probably the best I've come across.

That's not to say I still don't have my hesitations around these type of tests - or more the point, those who are implementing them. The major problem (in my opinion) is in the interpretation of the test - for example, the person who was 'feeding back' my test to me, wanted to concentrate on my 'risks' versus my 'strengths'.

Whatever ... just in case any of you are interested... my 'profile' came out as a 'PROMOTER'. A word picture to describe me follows:

* Very outgoing and forthright style
* Quick to speak out and give views
* Goal-oriented and self-promoting
* Thinks imaginatively and broadly
* Can intimidate quieter, less 'up front' people
* May be overwhelming and too rapid

So there you go... I'm basically a pushy, outspoken, overwhelming sales person. Joy.

you forgot intimidating. =).

I don't really know you, but from what I can see so far (all the way here in SF) is that you do NOT come off as pushy or intimidating. You are effusive and funny and you make people feel good. Who doesn't want to work with someone that makes them feel good?

You're definitely not too rapid. I mean, for god's sake, you don't even post everyday! and you are outgoing -- true.

I HATE evals with a passion. They never focus on the good stuff do they?
