Over the years I've had to take a few personality tests for a few managerial positions, and always seemed to get the job I was applying for as a result. It always surprised me, because I know I can be kind of rigid. But that's good in some jobs right? I'm not very patient and tend to get annoyed and impatient with indecisive and incompetent people as well (yikes, that sounds bad). Whenever a job left me unchallenged, I looked for something new. I've had 4 HR jobs in 20 years, and then I changed careers when my children finished school. My second career, in libraries,was a much better fit. Just 2 jobs in (13 years), but I only changed jobs because I moved to another state.
