When I was in my 20s I worked for a season at a ski resort in Utah. They had us take what I call an Idiot Test.

T/F questions like:
--I often come late to work.
--Sometimes I feel like punching my boss.
--I steal from my employer if I think I can get away from it.

I guess if you are dumb enough to answer True to these questions , you don't deserve a minimum wage job.

I wonder, though, how the PhDs would react...



> I've seen variations on personality tests over the years. You might consider it a fad, though I would disagree given that Jung published his Personality Types book in 1921 (are radios, TVs, and cars with combustion engines fads? They also hit the scene in the 1920s). I know that some people are averse to being pigeon-holed and think they are unique ;) , but it makes sense if you consider it. If you communicate with someone from the "direction" in which they process information, you'll be much more likely to make your case with them, and less likely to have them shut down in a conversation.
