Do you value objective facts or subjective concerns? Do you remember things with a hazy of emotion or do you recall the stats? Do you feel first and then have thoughts reacting, assigning meaning to them…or do you have thoughts that lead to emotional reactions? Do you prefer and/or deliver the “hard truth” or do you value harmony and tact?
How do other tend to see you? Do you prefer to have plans or leave things more open ended? Do you appear to be task oriented or taking things as they come to you?
