| 11. I hate
to be interrupted when I'm working
Doesn't everyone? But if you get the job, you're going to be interrupted
all the time, so you should answer FALSE. A TRUE response indicates
single-mindedness, inflexibility, and probably irritability (low
12. The trouble with many people is that they don't take things
At first I was tempted to recommend FALSE, to imply that you believe
people are essentially concerned and responsiblea good lie.
But putting TRUE indicates that you are a serious person who doesn't
approve of flighty, uncaring people; it doesn't necessarily mean
that you are a sadsack doom-and-gloomer. I think TRUE has the edge
13. I feel that there is only one true religion.
ALSE, although I have doubts about this one, too. A TRUE response
indicates certainty of faith, of course, but it also betokens a
rigid lack of acceptance. Better to appear open-minded.
14. I get excited very easily.
No, this has nothing to do with sex, so put FALSE. Companies want
calm, level-headed people (actually they want drones, myrmidons
and accommodators who don't mind fulfilling any request).
15. I used to keep a diary.
Now think. If you used to keep a diary, why aren't you still keeping
one? Because you grew out of it, right? Now you take more interest
in the external world and less in your internal one. However, if
you never kept a diary, the implication is that you have always
been extroverted, so FALSE is a better answer (but this is an item
that's not important).
16. I usually feel nervous and ill at ease at a
formal dance or party.
FALSO. You are gregarious and outgoing, not self-conscious. You
are a company person, get it?
17. Maybe some minority groups do get rough treatment, but it's
no business of mine.FALSEagain,
assuming a negative response means yes, it is my business. You don't
want to appear callous or insensitive; you want them to think that
you are an involved, caring, fair-minded person with communitynationalinterests.
18. I feel useless at times.
NEVER. In the real world, you will naturally feel futile most of
the time, but you must not let on.
19. Once a week or more often I feel suddenly hot all over, without
apparent cause.Remember, never answer TRUE to a question that says
you don't understand what your body is doing or what's happening
to you. You are IN CHARGE at all times. FALSE.
