When facing a new challenge or problem, I try to scope it from at least three or four angles.

1                2                3                4               5

When I see something I’m unfamiliar with, I watch the process closely to better understand how it works.

1                2                3                4               5

When I take on something new, I make an attempt to relate it to something I already know about.
I tell people about my thinking on an issue and ask them to comment on my logic and reasonableness.

1                2                3                4               5

I dislike it when people say, “We’ve always done it that way.”
6 I quickly develop ideas and experiment with their implementation.

1                2                3                4               5

7 It doesn’t take me long to understand complicated processes or systems.
8 I ask a lot of questions to several people about things I don’t fully understand or know everything about.
9 When a change is introduced, I can quickly see how it can best unfold based on past experiences.

1                2                3                4               5

10 I like to know exactly what I’m doing when working on a project, relying on already-developed skills and knowledge.

5               4               3               2                 1

11 I know something about most of my colleagues’ personal lives—their family, hobbies, etc.
12 I’m energized by meeting new people, attending events, and visiting places I’ve never been before. 

1                2                3                4               5

13 When listening to others’ ideas, I critically evaluate them and either support or disagree with them vocally.
14 I seek out differing opinions from others, asking them to play devil’s advocate.
15 I like to air out differences when I am in conflict with others.
16 I dislike it when people express an interest in me personally and wondering why they’re doing so.
17 I step up and take control when I sense that it’s needed.

1                2                3                4               5

18 I’m aware of my biases and prejudices when it comes to projects or people.
19 I enjoy hearing points of view that are counter to my own and seek out people who I know have different views from mine.
20 I view setbacks and failures as opportunities for analysis and learning.
21 I quickly recognize when I’m wrong and openly admit it.
22 I like to monitor progress or variance on key indicators of success.
23 I quickly regroup and help others to regroup when the unexpected happens.
24 I’m comfortable with not knowing what my work life will be like in two or three years.

1                2                3                4               5

25 I believe that there are multiple ways to get the same result with the same degree of efficiency.
26 I dwell on things when I have a bad day, replaying events in my mind over and over.
27 I set goals or mileposts for most projects and areas of responsibility.
28 I really dislike getting blindsided by things.
29 I am generally excited by the possibilities that technology and global economies present.

30 I don’t get thrown off when projects get delayed or tasks get resequenced for some reason.
