---- Personality Structure ---

Score: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
Mr. Tatum is a calm individual with a low energy level. He will handle environmental pressure well, but may lack the inner tension to energetically tackle assignments or projects. This score should be checked against the distortion score, as individuals who distort often depict themselves as being more calm than they actually are.
Score: 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
Richard is a very quality-minded, reliable individual with a high degree of integrity and strong ethics. He has a strong interest in providing quality service and products to customers, but is not very flexible or adaptable to change. This could cause him to experience difficulty handling multiple job demands and assignments. He tends not to be an innovative, free-thinking person who creates new ways of doing things or new uses for existing applications of products or services, but rather will be one who sticks with proven applications as much as possible. He is likely to agree to change only when he is convinced the change is necessary. Even though the company can trust him and know he will be concerned that customers' needs are being met, they cannot expect frequent, imaginative or fresh ideas from him.
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
Mr. Tatum may not always utilize the time or resources he has available to him to reach organizational goals and priorities as well as he should. He is able to easily adapt to deadline changes and contingencies which might arise. Since he tends to react to situations as they arise, he may not always be focused on goals or as aware of priorities as he should be. A high score in Mental Acuity may compensate for a low score in this dimension.
Score: 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
Richard has an interactive, sharing style of communicating and will be a good collaborator who will share his own thoughts and knowledge with others. Even though he is open and interactive and feels comfortable articulating his thoughts to people, he does not require constant contact with people to be content.
Emotional Dev
Score: 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
Mr. Tatum is a very self-assured person with a strong degree of self-confidence. He believes in himself, has a very high frustration tolerance level and a high degree of patience for himself and others. This score should be checked against the distortion score, as individuals who distort often portray themselves as more patient than they actually are.
Score: 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
Richard can take control, maintain order, and express his opinions, but is open to the ideas of others and will not actively seek out conflict. He will attempt to influence and direct others, but not to the point of appearing unnecessarily demanding.
Score: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
Mr. Tatum is a team player who does not have a strong sense of competitiveness. He believes that competition is good, but, when over-emphasized, can harm relationships and ruin harmony in the office or work environment. Job satisfaction is measured, in part, by the good relationships he has built.
Mental Toughness
Score: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
Richard has the mental toughness to deal with a moderate amount of criticism or rejection, but retains the ability to relate to customers and others with an appropriate degree of empathy. Occasionally, he may take a negative response personally and need some encouragement and reinforcement to keep his spirits up.
Questioning /Probing
Score: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
Richard tends to accept most instructions, directives and information at face value, seldom questioning or probing to better understand the situation. He appears to have a very positive, enthusiastic working attitude and is trusting of others. If problem-solving or troubleshooting complex issues, his effectiveness could be reduced by his limited probing skills.
Score: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
Richard needs some job security, but can be motivated by recognition for his achievements when the rewards are sufficient. Even though he will be willing to put in occasional extra hours and effort to complete a project, job security is still the primary incentive. He will, however, usually respond to the promise of a raise, bonus, incentive or reward for improved performance.
