I came across a webpage via Facebook that claims that you can learn a LOT about people from a writing sample.
Here are the results:
You are shrewd, skeptical and can be perceived as indirect.
You are unstructured: you do not make a lot of time for organization in your daily life. You are philosophical: you are open to and intrigued by new ideas and love to explore them. And you are authority-challenging: you prefer to challenge authority and traditional values to help bring about positive changes.
Your choices are driven by a desire for prestige.
You consider tradition to guide a large part of what you do: you highly respect the groups you belong to and follow their guidance. You are relatively unconcerned with achieving success: you make decisions with little regard for how they show off your talents.
Please read this closely. On the one hand, it claims that I challenge authority and tradition; yet, two paragraphs later, I allegedly “consider tradition to guide a large part” of what I do. Also, I appear to be driven by “a desire for prestige”, yet I am “relatively unconcerned with achieving success.”
The sad thing is that the mindless, retarded drones that work in corporate Human Resources departments would look at this “Summary” and probably deny me a chance to get hired.
