Personality profiling

I did one of those personality profiles the other day. It’s not the first time I’ve taken one and the jury’s still out as to whether they can be a useful tool in recruitment. I would say yes, but as only as part of a balanced diet, so to speak.

Anyway, here are my results. I would say remarkably accurate, especially as it actually mentions what I do for a living as well as listing all the jobs I would hate. And, to be honest, I’ve always wanted to be Edward Fox in The Day of the Jackal – assassin.
