There are four main interest areas: People, Ideas, Data, and Things. You get a score of a percentage for each area, totaling up to 100%. Here I am, broken down by interest:
People 10%. This involves coaching, collaborating, leading... none of which I really have the patience for. I am not a born manager and have trouble with people not following rules. So 10% is pretty darn accurate.
Ideas 50%. Ideas means creating, learning, reading, studying, writing, correcting, editing. I'm all for that stuff.
Data 30%. Auditing, budgeting, computing... eh, I guess so. I like the idea of data insofar as it's the result of ideas.
Things 10% include assembling, building, inventorying. Um, that sounds like hard work, so... no.
The report goes on to show you which areas of your employer's businesses would be a good fit for you. My top three:
Business Operations: This is where I currently work.
Human Capital: This is where I'd rather work.
Pharmacy: This is the middle where I'll probably land.
So the test didn't particularly tell me anything I didn't already know but it did give me a push towards earning a professional license/certification this year. Not that the idea doesn't still freak me out but this year I'm facing my fears and going for it.
