One of the jumping off points for this process, after a rather lengthy Q & A session during which she asked things like, "Have you ever met someone and thought, 'I really admire her & I would love to have a career like hers!'?" And I was all, "Oh, absolutely!" and she asked, "Who?" and I was like, "Nancy Drew!" And she looked annoyed and then I realized that I haven't actually met Nancy Drew.
So I laughed like, of course I am joking! and said, well, um no... although most of my friends are working, I don't particularly see myself doing what they do, but I would like to have the same satisfaction I see in them... blah-blah-blah
I have been sent home with a
600 6 page personality quiz and I am not to think too much about the answers but rather answer with my first instinct... and all of this sounds easy enough but I am finding the whole process rather confusing.
For example, the question: At parties, do you, A) Sometimes get bored or B) Always have fun?
Where is answer C? C would be the following answer: If it's a party of people I like I will have fun, if it is something weird that I have been forced out of obligation to attend I will probably be bored, but will paste a smile on my face and therefore will appear to be having fun.
When playing cards, do you enjoy most: A) the sociability or B) the excitement of winning or C) the problem of getting the most out of each hand or D) don't you enjoy playing cards?
I am looking for answer E which reads: cannot answer because other than Old Maid & Go Fish you haven't ever played a game of cards in your life.
Then there is "Which word appeals to you more?" section and as I prefer "mercy" over "justice" and "peacemaker" over "judge" and "forgive" over "tolerate", I am clearly the ideal person for that "Head of Unicorns and Rainbows" job opening.
At this point my head is beginning to explode and I feel not unlike a stranger in a strange land, however, the strange land in this case is my brain.
We meet again on Tuesday at which time I fully expect to be the first person to fail due to lack of awareness of her own personality.
