Narrative Interpretation INTEREST IN JOB CONTENT (Those tasks you want to perform) The Interest section identifies the ideal job content for you by identifying your motivations and preferences, called Worker Traits. These traits are listed in order of priority. Typically, what one wants to do is that which he/she is most likely to do and do it often enough (including training for it) to transform the raw interest into real skills, and then, to stay on that job. The Interest section of your MAPP report outlines your preferences toward work in relation to people, creativity, social activities, routine, tools, equipment and more. The Interest section is the first glance of your top motivators. Each section thereafter will inter-relate and you will begin seeing themes about the types of tasks and work that you prefer. Ben has natural preferences that engender curiosity about the nature of things and about "what makes things tick". In addition, motivational levels are highest where activities allow thinking focused on the inquisitive, exploratory, analytical, and experimental. "Technical" orientation is often the interaction of two or more of these traits: Scientific, Natural/Outdoor, Mechanical, and Managerial. It is important to identify the other traits involved to determine whether Ben is more technical, scientific or systems-oriented or if these traits are balanced. Ben is motivated to manage people and their activities. Such management can be exercised with a variety of talents Ben may possess and for a variety of reasons. The primary reasons may be: 1) to exercise executive, managerial, or supervisory responsibility and authority, 2) to have the management position, role and recognition, 3) to not be in a subordinate, supervised position or role. Because emphasis is on the management of people, this is seen by Ben as a service role where the managing is in the interest of those being managed. Whether Ben is motivated and equipped to manage on a "take charge" or "given charge" basis (an important difference) can be determined by the motivational strength and involvement of other related traits. Preferences for Ben fully support being perceptually, subconsciously, and consciously aware of fantasy, symbols, symbolic relationships, abstract ideas, options, and choice of options as they relate to creative or innovative activities. Perception triggers ideas in Ben's mind, a process that just happens - a process often called intuition. It is not a conscious effort to logically "come up with" creative ideas; instead, the process is best identified with the statement that "a thought struck me." A quote by Carl Jung probably makes complete sense to Ben: "Art is innate in the artist, like an instinct that seizes and makes a tool out of the human being. The thing in the final analysis that wills something in him is not he, the personal man, but the aim of the art." Once Ben has begun an activity, a priority (perhaps the highest motivational factor) is to get it done, reach the goal, get a grade, produce a finished product, get the prize, etc. Self-satisfaction is tied directly to completed achievement. Pride is taken in setting the target, pace, and/or schedule for almost all activities. Motivational levels drop and Ben can actually become frustrated, even stressed, when achievement is interrupted, terminated, rescheduled, or given a lower priority, thus delaying or preventing success in reaching the self-set or self-known goal. This is a major motivation or incentive common to self-employed persons, persons selling for commissions, and/or persons engaged in competitive activities. Ben prefers to associate with others socially, organizationally, and recreationally. In addition to assuring company with others, association is an important arena and environment for interacting with people in a variety of ways: leadership, managing, supervising, communicating, serving, caring, etc. Other traits have to be considered to determine how and why Ben is motivated to associate and interact with others. Ben is conscious of existence, meaning, purpose, potential and destiny of humankind, people, and self. Ben is motivated by a self-felt, self-accepted calling to the cause of good, growth, and gain in the lives of others. Influential communication of ideas is a primary way of achieving those objectives. Perception and thinking tend to be holistic and conceptual; i.e., seeing the big picture. It is important to see which of the other traits are interactive with this trait because there can be many interesting combinations. This is a major trait in cultural, intellectual, academic, and creative activities. It includes ideas, concepts, theory, ethics, and values. Ben enjoys social or vocational interaction with others but is not dependent on direct contact and association. If some work responsibilities or activities require functioning apart from others, it can be done without the need for social breaks to be with others. This flexibility is an asset in trade activities, operating machines or equipment, and in many technical and outdoor activities. Motivational levels are highest for Ben when in the limelight where recognition is earned, deserved, or given. However, there is no "ego trip" involved in the effort. Ben can comfortably function in the foreground or the background. Nonetheless, recognition is a motivating vocational factor. Ben's preferences can include routine, organized, and methodical procedures, but this is not a need or dependency. Ben is most likely to adapt immediate preferences to change if it isn't too sudden, radical, or disruptive. The predominant motivation is to strike a good balance between stability and flexibility. Ben has a preference for physically working with things and objects, but that activity is probably secondary or a minor part of a more important activity, such as operating a vehicle as a part of his/her work. It is an asset to be handy with one's physical talents, tools, appliances, etc. TEMPERAMENT FOR THE JOB (How you prefer to perform tasks) This Temperament section identifies the motivation and talent an individual possesses in twelve Worker Trait Areas and coincides with the Interest section. The Temperament and Interest sections say the same thing from a different perspective. Your highest motivators will be displayed first. In this section you will learn things such as; do you prefer lots of change and variety on the job, are you persuasive, do you prefer to work in teams or independently, are you a naturally driven to evaluate and analyze, and more. Ben prefers and needs change and variety. Change is motivating, stimulating, and energizing. Ben looks for new options, challenges, assignments, acquaintances, relationships, and even new careers in new places. Ben tires of sameness, repetition, and routine even in activities that were interesting at the start. Once things become routine for Ben, this becomes a motivation to move on to more interesting things. (NOTE: "Evaluation: to appraise carefully; to judge as to worth or amount; to estimate generally.") Most likely, Ben has a logical mind which "makes sense" of what is perceived regarding the big picture and pieces of the picture within the context of that big picture. It is evaluation or assessment after perception, not the process of perception itself. Emphasis is on patterns, linkage, and relationships. Intuition may be involved in conjunction with this evaluation/assessment process. Ben subjectively exercises responsibility for social, vocational, or recreational perceptions, thinking, options, choices, decisions, and actions. This is an important, broad scoped, in-depth factor that includes social, leadership, management, and mental activities. Responsibilities which fit Ben's preferences are identified by many other traits. The purpose of this factor is to emphasize that Ben accepts, assumes, and acts responsibly (and probably assertively) relative to the exercise of talents and skills, and those talents and skills might apply to various forms of leadership. Perception, thinking, and action tend to be in the context of the "big picture". Thinking is holistic, conceptual, exploratory, and analytical. Ben is most likely benevolent, voluntarily giving of self to help others, especially regarding current pain, hurts, stress, needs, and problems. This means empathetic, sympathetic, intentional, personal involvement in the personal lives of others to give help, sacrificially if necessary, and to subjectively gain personal satisfaction from providing personal service. (NOTE: emphasis is on the word "personal." This is a heart trait and is totally self-motivated and voluntary. It is one of the most strongly motivated traits in determining vocational dedication. The word "others" is important in the context of benevolence) Ben is probably more benevolent toward persons not intimately, formally, or organizationally related. (NOTE: Benevolence expects those in close relationships to join in the giving rather than being a priority recipient.) Nonetheless, Ben probably exhibits benevolence toward all persons. But benevolence does have priorities about eligibility of persons for help. Ben is strongly motivated to be organizationally active with others. Ben senses and accepts a certain degree of self-assumed responsibility for the good, growth, and gain of others. Mind and mental activity are very central to Ben's vocational activities. (NOTE: "Intuition is very different from thought, from feeling and from sensation, by the major characteristic of insight. Intuition comes from the Latin meaning, literally, `in to you'. Intuitive insight results from `identification with,' rather than `looking at' the object of attention. It is `being a part of.' Intuiting is a process, not of perception, but of experience. There is no need for interpretation in intuition. Intuitive relationship implies contact. So one does not perceive; one experiences." ~~Quote from Robert Ashby) Ben has a preference or perhaps the talent or ability for experiencing abstract ideas, creativity, concepts, theory, assessment, and choice of options. New ideas and creativity must have an important place in vocation. Ben regards self as talented, self-sufficient, and goal-oriented. Ben most likely demonstrates independence in two ways: 1) is motivated to manage own operational, technical, professional, scientific, and/or administrative activities without management or involvement by others; or 2) does manage the skills and abilities of others, impersonally but objectively, as "utility" in the process of getting things done. The prime motivation is to utilize what is at hand to accomplish vocational objectives. That could be done exclusively with one's own talents and skills, or it could include applying the talents and skills of others. If it includes management of people, they are expected, perhaps even required, to perform at quality skill levels. Ben prefers not to be managed or dominated by others or to rigidly conform to organization rules or expectations. Ben accepts and exercises responsibility for organizational management but may not necessarily seek out that role for self. Emphasis is on management of people, but that is directly tied to performance of existing, available skills and abilities. Performance and results are the main emphasis. Other traits must be studied to determine if Ben manages best on a take charge or given charge basis which has much to do with how personally or impersonally, performance-based or service-based, that management style will be. Ben is motivated to influence and convince others as part of social, organizational, vocational, or recreational activities. A motivation exists to speak up when there is reason, occasion, or opportunity to sway others to Ben's ideas or way of thinking. Persuasive efforts may be oral, written, or via some media (like email). Motivation behind that persuasion is to get others to accept what one is communicating. Ben is tolerant of routine sensory/physical activity that is tied to and timed by machine operation. It usually involves repetitious processes with occasional scheduled breaks. With only medium motivation for assembly line type of work, it is likely that feeding, offbearing, or assembly work is a temporary activity until something more interesting is found, or it is a minor part of the assigned work. Ben does not generally see, retain, and/or recall verbatim detail and, instead, shows an awareness of concepts, patterns, general ideas, etc. Ben "Gets the drift" of what is seen, read, or heard. Recall is in general and in relative terms and not in specifics. Numbers are sometimes transposed. Words are read as form or pattern rather than by specific letters. Although this concept is built around ability, addressed here is how these abilities generally affect current preferences and specific motivations pertaining to the situation. Ben does not prefer or need to be managed by others. It is important to study related Worker Traits to determine whether Ben is motivated to manage, influence, persuade, or work independently. Persons who don't wish to be managed sometimes do not perform or adjust well when closely monitored or supervised. They resent being dominated, managed, or controlled by others. APTITUDE FOR THE JOB (Expression of performing tasks) This is a highly generalized section in which the narrative deliberately focuses on the combination of motivations and preferences as they relate to personal talents or skills. It lets the individual look into a vocational mirror and see his/her own talents and then decide for themselves where they fit and function the best with regard to motivation and preference. It is another context in which to see if priorities are mental, sensory, or physical: "To thine own self be true." Philosophical, cultural, scientific, literary, managerial, and/or computational work, more than likely, represent very important types of mental activities for Ben. Being capable in those activities, Ben's mind is naturally receptive to consider abstract ideas, theory, concepts, inquiry, exploration, analysis, logic, systems, and procedures. Factors in this aptitude section, plus the data and reasoning sections show the degree of motivation and talent Ben has for each of those mental activities. High rating for this trait indicates an intellectual orientation that is functional in, or has potential for, academic, scientific, research, literary, executive, or consulting activities. Sensory/mental awareness of "pieces of the picture" is capacity for comparative, intra-holistic recognition of parts relative to other parts and/or the big picture. It includes ability to see essential detail and make visual/mental comparison and discrimination relative to relationships of objects. The definition says "pieces of the picture," so it recognizes the picture and its larger context, but this trait still emphasizes pieces and their status as pieces. Ben prefers to see the big picture by first putting all the 'pieces' together. Most likely Ben already sees pieces as pieces rather than the big picture first and then breaking it apart into all the various pieces. Ben's preferences fully support holistic, conceptual perception, and thinking relative to the basic nature, utility, potential, or strategic possibility of what is being observed or considered. This includes intuition, insight, creativity, curiosity, experimentation, and innovation in various degrees. Ideas are at the heart of this talent. The basic orientation is perceptual and mental seeing. Ben's preferences and motivations are derived from understanding the deeper or 'real' meaning of ideas and words and uses them effectively in written or oral communication. Literary in this factor means intentional search for ideas expressed by the minds of others for one's own use, assimilation, learning, etc. The source can be books, other publications, historical documents, research information, drama, movies, television, the "information highway" or internet, etc. Emphasis is on communication: picking up information from minds of others or communication aimed toward the minds of others. Journalism and writing are major activities. Literary activity is not exclusively intellectual, academic, or cultural. It may be an end in itself as in a bookworm for instance. And literary activity is not always accompanied by communicative activity, written or oral. On the other hand, communicative activity need not be literary in the classic sense. And one need not be persuasive to be communicative, but it helps. When the trait is highly motivated, as it is here, it suggests both literary and communicative abilities that are or could become a usable skill or a developed talent. By now you can see that only a review of all traits will clearly show the specific content of Ben's literary and/or communicative preferences and motivations. Although Ben does not specifically prefer mathematics, motivation is not swayed one way or the other as there is an adequate awareness and ability utilizing mathematics. Other traits will indicate which kind of math that preference applies to: theoretical, statistical, analytical, computational, business, administrative, clerical, arithmetic, or posting. Wherever it works best, it is a vocational asset. Ben's preferences and motivations most likely revolve around an adequate ability to see, retain, and recall detail. Preferences and motivations do not fixate on detail or a vocational specialization based on detail. (NOTE: Awareness of detail at this level is a useful talent in functional, operational, or administrative activities). Ben has a moderate level of motivation when considering activities where attributes include: sensory/physical coordination, dexterity, timing, rhythm and ability to perform simultaneous function - called "eye-hand-foot coordination" by the Dictionary of Occupational Titles. Ben's motivational level is effected by whatever ability the mind can adequately and immediately link physical reaction, perception and/or senses. Most likely there is not a 'second nature' response in most instances where an immediate response is required by the mind. Ben is moderately motivated for Manual 'workbench' activities regardless of actually developed skills or abilities. 'Workbench' activities mean `handwork' at a stationary place where materials are processed. Ben either already possesses the required skills or has adequate motivation for acquiring such skills to work for long periods of time, but disinterest will finally have an effect on performance. The quality or output of work will decline, or Ben will start to look for something else to do. Breaks in the work, or rotation of work (such as in a "team environment" may be enough variety to keep interest and performance at motivated, good performance levels. Regardless of if Ben has the ability and/or skills or even the aptitude to handle and manipulate small objects rapidly and accurately with good concentration, preferences for this sort of activity are, more than likely, adequate for doing so for a considerable length of time. If Ben does possess the skills, abilities or even aptitude, the only way of knowing if there is an adequate level of motivation is to review all traits related to detail, concentration, keen visual awareness, extended routine, and handling of functional problems. Ben's motivations and preferences adequately relate to the activities of the mind and its immediate response to use available talent as a first response. (Note: This is a 'general' definition that identifies how well and quickly the mind decides what to do physically and how to do it). Where the motivation for the activity is only moderately present, it is unlikely that it will have primary vocational emphasis or motivation. Truly motivated activities for Ben can be either physical or mental depending on other factors (addressed in other traits within this assessment). Ben has few artistic preferences, and where preferences are lowest, artistic talent has probably not been developed to any usable ability. (NOTE: Given industry norms, the use of artistic details and processes in job context is problematic for people without such preferences). PEOPLE (How you relate to people, in priority order) In this section, seven people factors cover important activities related to the interaction of a person with other persons. These are very important for individuals motivated and perhaps even naturally talented or specifically trained for associating and interacting with people. They may also be important traits for certain “people intensive” jobs. Low motivational ratings in this section may also be quite positive and valuable, if occupations necessitate or require that an individual function apart from others, manage his/her own activities, or be satisfied with work in isolation. This high drive to negotiate is intellectual more than psychological, assertive more than aggressive, logical more than emotional, strategically winning the contest more than persuasively winning a skirmish. Ben is strongly motivated to represent one position in a confrontation of different views and objectives and is motivated and determined to apply logic, strategies, and communicative skills to cause agreement, compromise, concession, or submission by opposing positions or views. Persuasion is probably involved; at least it is an asset, but it is not essential. Intimidation may be involved, but it is considered a poor tool for achieving objectives. Strategic thinking is preferred as the key element and is also represented in the reasoning section (Factor 1). Highly motivated persuasion means that Ben intends to assertively, even aggressively, make direct personal contact with others, orally project a message with the deliberate intent and attempt to cause the listener or listeners to hear what is said, accept what is said, and act on what was said, so that Ben can close the deal. If it is for commission (i.e., in the seller's interest), it will be a hard-sell even though it might come across as a soft-sell. If it has philosophical or benevolent objectives, it will be a soft-sell. But if Ben is defending and/or championing the cause of the underdog or the less fortunate, then it will seem as if some modern-day Don Quixote and/or Joan of Arc are doing the persuading. (Note: As a single trait, persuasion is the most deliberately assertive, often aggressive, psychological expression/effort of an individual.) Philosophical, literary, scientific, managerial and/or persuasive traits may be involved in Ben's motivation and drive to educate, train, or influence others. The main preference is to share knowledge and information that will be useful. So, conveying information to others assumes that educating self precedes educating others. Ben is motivated by learning, seeing the big picture, recognizing how pieces fit the picture, and prefers passing information on to others. Because so many traits might be involved in instructing activities, it is important to scan the other traits to see which traits are important. "Mentor: a trusted counselor or guide." Ben is interested in and consciously prefers to consider the existence, meaning, purpose, potential, and destiny of mankind, people, persons, and self; with self-felt, self-accepted responsibility to influence and/or cause good, growth, and gain in the lives of all concerned. Ben has intuition and philosophical curiosity that causes an awareness of personality, intentions, emotions, ethics, values, and moods of other persons, and of self. By itself, this is not benevolence. If Ben is highly motivated for benevolent activities, this trait is compulsively central to personal and vocational activities. If there is a lack of personal motivation, then the preference for consideration tends to be more philosophical or academic in nature, but still service oriented. Ben's personal motivations support the willing acceptance of responsibility for planning, assigning, and supervising work activities of others in operational or administrative activities. Preferences focus on daily scheduling, procedures, expediting, motivating, solving problems as they arise, and meeting functional objectives. This sort of preference considers the prime responsibility as developing the will to work with employees and motivating them to higher levels of attainment and performance. Ben is moderately motivated by being "on stage" in order to pleasantly influence others toward a particular viewpoint, objective, or product. Ben probably has moderate to high motivational levels in other gregarious and persuasive traits. Ben is comfortable with a spokesperson role, and may even prefer it or be personally energized by it. Ben is only moderately motivated within this trait, (s)he is probably not "stage-struck" toward entertaining or acting to the exclusion of other activities or responsibilities. The preference is more toward influencing rather than promoting or selling. Ben is motivated to voluntarily communicate to others with the intent or hope that the information will be in their interest and for their benefit. At this motivational level, it is probable that Ben is more strongly motivated in benevolent and literary traits rather than just this persuasive trait. The persuasive trait here might have a lower motivational level, however, the sense of service responsibility will cause certain willingness, even duty, to communicate persuasively if warranted. Rather than a motivation for putting others first, Ben's preferences revolve around self as a first priority. Ben is motivated by self-interest, status, and recognition. Ben does not like to lose, so all options and choices are evaluated on the basis of the chance of gain versus the chance of loss before a decision or commitment is made. Stress and frustration are experienced when things aren't going Ben's way. Pleasure, enthusiasm, and energy are experienced when things are going Ben's way. Association and relationships are chosen, maintained, or abandoned on the basis of self-interest. THINGS (How you relate to things, in priority order) Working with things, manipulation of materials and processes, and cognizance of operational and mechanical forces or objects, highlights this Worker Trait Code section. None of the factors in this section are directly related to people nor call for exclusive talents whether or not they exist within the individual. However, these factors do call for the interaction and interplay between mental, sensory, physical, and mechanical skills and/or abilities as possessed by the individual. If the individual has a natural mechanical savvy, and likes to work with his/her hands, this becomes a highly important and relevant Worker Trait Code section. Ben is motivated toward activities involving mechanical engineering, including: 1) mechanical awareness of assembly, fabrication, operation, leverage, motion, force, and power, 2) design and/or draw technical plans, 3) technical, statistical, and numerical analysis, and 4) layout and installation. This highly motivated engineering orientation probably means professional dedication to a major engineering vocation. Ben is moderately motivated to be responsible for technical, operational control of tolerances and quality; for attainment of precise standards and identification of defects. (NOTE: This is a very important preference in industries where production, maintenance, and repair require exact precision, high quality, and almost zero in allowable defects or error). Ben has a certain level of preference for working with machines, and probably has the ability to operate controls and observe machine performance or is adequately motivated to learn the required skills. Current personal motivations support Ben coping well with the routine involved with fixed-site machine operation. Ben is moderately motivated for on-site machine operation rather than being dedicated to that activity. So tenure in the position may not be guaranteed for an extended time for this individual. However, merit raises, variety of work assignments or activities, etc, may heighten motivational levels. Ben has motivational levels that support operating heavy, mobile equipment such as trucks, earth-movers, cranes, etc. (NOTE: Sensory/physical skills are involved and important: e.g., coordination, dexterity, timing, spatial awareness: size, shape, distance, dimension, perspective, relationship; depth perception). Because motivational levels are only moderate for equipment operation, Ben identifies more with the required talent or abilities rather than with the equipment; i.e., "it's another job". Nonetheless, persons whose natural preferences support a natural mechanical savvy are always interested in tools, appliances, machines, or equipment. Moderately motivated, this operator trait is probably not occupationally specialized. Ben's motivational level supports the ability (either existing or because of pending training) to be perceptive and alert relative to monitoring operational processes by use of technical recording instruments. This includes remaining interested, alert and responsible throughout steady operational shifts. This activity could appropriately be called operational/clerical because it means monitoring what is going on. Given the option to participate where an aptitude for manual labor or basic labor activities is required Ben's preferences for participation is moderate. This type of activity involves easily used craft tools, repetitious activity, recognizable detail, outdoor physical exposure, and minor problem solving. It is most often a helper position that can be handled with minimum skill, training, instruction, or supervision. Please note the word "aptitude" which means ability to do something, with no mention or inference about whether the person wants to do it or gains satisfaction from it. It is, therefore, necessary to see other traits to determine if Ben has supportive motivational levels for such work to be satisfying on a steady basis. Given the full description of any activity requiring a sensory/physical aptitude for feeding materials into machines or offbearing materials from machines efficiently and steadily, Ben's preferences for being involved start at a moderate motivational level. Such activity is usually associated with assembly line processing. It is important to review other worker trait factors to determine if and how long Ben would remain motivated and how that level would effect tolerance, or coping with being locked in with machine-mandated performance. One must be content with this kind of activity before one can be satisfied by it or motivated to continue doing it. Ben is not motivated toward processing activities, no matter what is being processed or who is doing the processing. There is no natural preference for this sort of activity. DATA (How you relate to data, in priority order) The data section identifies preferences, motivations and priorities for certain kinds of mental activities. If interests and preferences are primarily intellectual, academic, scholarly, scientific, mathematical, or professional, this may be the most important section of the Worker Trait Code System for the person appraised. If his/her preferences are not primarily mental, this section may have little value. If these factors are important for this profile, then factors in the reasoning, math, and language sections will also be both relevant and important. Preferences that direct mental activity for Ben are naturally curious, inquisitive, investigative, exploratory, analytical, and experimental. Words such as "if" and "why" are central to this trait. It is a factor that fits exactly between synthesizing and comparing, with emphasis on synthesizing. Analysis is more than seeing the big picture, or seeing how the pieces fit the big picture. The motivation to engage an activity or process comes from nonlinear speculating about new forms, possibilities, relations, and fits. In other words, it tends to be an executive function dedicated to possibilities. "Synthesize: putting two or more things together to form a whole; the combination of separate elements of thought into a whole; the operation by which divided parts are united" (Webster). Ben is motivated by seeing the big picture so much so that (s)he, attempts to see all parts of the picture in that larger context, then sees all parts relative to each other, but still within that larger context. Perception and thinking are therefore holistic and conceptual. Philosophical and intuitive processes are involved. Scientific, managerial, and/or literary preferences may also be involved. Other mental factors in this section are subordinate, secondary, or complementary to this primary motivational attribute. This is an overview and scanning activity that includes ideas, concepts, theory, fiction, hypothesis and assessment. (Note that words in the last sentence are unrelated to logic that Webster defines as "the science of the operations of the understanding subservient to the estimation of evidence.") For Ben, preferences for this sort of synthesis will allow it to get no further toward logic than estimating. Ben is strongly motivated to coordinate: to take actions, to manipulate that which is at hand in order to "get the show on the road." Because of the strong motivational levels for this, it is very important to determine whether Ben has first seen the big picture, pulled in important pieces of the picture, made plans, and developed strategies before taking action. If "Coordination" is the top priority, it becomes a "General Patton Syndrome" which is to begin the charge, then identify the objective, and hope that someone follows with the supplies. If there are equal motivational levels in this trait as in other mental traits, it still means enthusiasm and drive to take action, but it is balanced with other related functions. This trait represents preferences that are goal oriented! Ben is highly motivated when given the task of identifying factors that are important for vocational use. This trait, comparing includes: 1) awareness of the context (big picture) in which the factor or factors would or could fit; 2) relationship of the factors to other factors within that larger context; 3) new possibilities of linkage or relationships of factors to the big picture; and/or 4) new possibilities of linkage or relationships of factors with factors in a new context. (NOTE: This is an important trait for research, technical activities, systems engineering, operations management, and administrative activity). Many trait combinations can be involved in this activity: scientific, literary, tangible problem solving, visual-artistic, philosophical, and managerial. It is important to identify which of those traits are involved in Ben's perceptual/mental preferences. Compiling means more than simply gathering large volumes of data sheets and stuffing them in a filing cabinet. It means that Ben is motivated to find, identify, classify, store, remember, and retrieve what is important or what might be important for future use. (NOTE: This is crucial for researchers, technical writers, lawyers, academic teachers, consultants, systems engineers, and programmers). This trait indicates a subconscious preference we could refer to as a "packrat" orientation, i.e., if it glitters; stuff it in the nest along with everything else because it might be useful sometime. Other traits will indicate how motivated the individual is to be thorough, practical, and efficient within this trait. Ben is highly motivated for routine, factual, mathematical problems related to operational, procedural, or administrative activities. This includes good logic, analysis, and attention to detail. (NOTE: Business math may be motivated strongly enough to be the heart of professional or vocational activity, as a CPA or corporate accountant, for instance). Copy activity involves detail and routine, which is preferred by Ben and includes reproducing images, information, etc. by machine operation and/or graphic design and layout. (NOTE: It is an asset for database management, computer publishing activity, administrative or library work, and/or warehouse processing). REASONING (How you relate to reasoning, in priority order) This Reasoning section is closely linked with the Data section. The Data section identifies an individual's priorities or preferences (high and low) for ways of thinking, while the Reasoning section focuses on where, why, and how this thinking will most likely be applied. Just like the linkage between the Interest and Temperament sections, Data and Reasoning are coupled very tightly as well. Ben applies scientific/technical/logical thinking (to the fullest extent this ability exists) to identify, analyze, and solve challenges and/or problems; to collect data, establish facts, connect abstract and concrete variables, draw valid conclusions, determine appropriate action, devise strategies and systems to achieve objectives. (NOTE: This is engineering in the industrial and technical sense). Ben probably relates to the following quote as it illustrates this trait: "What marks the mind of the strategist is an intellectual elasticity or flexibility that enables him to come up with realistic responses to changing conditions...In strategic thinking, one first seeks a clear understanding of the particular character of each element of a situation and then makes the fullest possible use of human brainpower to restructure the elements in the most advantageous way." (Keniche Ohmae, The Mind of the Strategist) Ben is strongly motivated to apply thinking to the big picture through holistic ideas, concepts, options, and strategies. This does not mean, suggest, or imply that thinking is kept only in a holistic context but it does mean that the first and constant priority or preference for consideration and focus are on the big picture. (Example: Ben more likely prefers to be an executive rather than a manager, and more inclined to be a manager rather than a supervisor.) Considering how pieces of the picture are brought in to the big picture stimulates motivation for the activity. Ben is naturally motivated to use and apply rational formulas, rules, systems, and/or procedures to deal with concrete variables where only limited instructions or guidelines exist. Emphasis here is on solving operational or administrative PROBLEMS that develop in familiar areas. This is commonly known as 'troubleshooting' and Ben has a natural preference for the mental procedure of doing so. Motivation is derived from a goal of getting the "train back on the track". Although silly, Ben probably sees the point clearly illustrated in a poem where a foreman reports a train wreck: "Off again. On again. Gone Again. Finnegan." (NOTE: This trait requires onsite familiarity with operations, a sense or suspicion of where things might or could break down, and savvy about ways to fix the problem). Given the vocational task, Ben's motivational level is adequate to participate where understanding of operational aspects of systems, procedures, and/or maintenance is required. Because Ben has only motivation for an activity that is based on repetition (in both function and time), it is likely that tenure will not be for the long haul unless Ben seeks, needs, or enjoys stability and routine. (NOTE: Motivation doesn't guarantee the ability or talent just as aptitude for an activity doesn't guarantee the motivation). For Ben, natural preferences can comfortably adapt to get into the "swing of things" and "go with the flow." Becoming synchronized with operational flow can be the result of many trait combinations, the most likely being mechanical savvy, attachment to the familiar, and attention to detail, plus certain social traits at even low motivational levels. It is likely that Ben is motivated in methodical, thorough, and routine activities as long as those activities are a necessary part of interests with stronger motivational levels. (Note: Many people like methodical, meticulous, routine activities as a break or departure from vocational activities that call for constant change, variety, quick decisions, risk, etc.) Depending on the situation, Ben generally prefers simple, routine tasks in a familiar environment. This preference of Ben's is probably limited to hearing or reading exactly what was meant and doing as instructed. (NOTE: This is a good trait for operational, administrative, or clerical activities. {In fast-food establishments for example, it is essential.}) Three kinds of persons typically have issues with this kind of job: 1) Those who don't hear (sometimes won't hear) or remember specific instructions, 2) those who feel entitled or licensed to do it some other way, and 3) those who simply cannot, for many reasons, "keep their nose to the grindstone" in such basic, routine tasks. MATHEMATICAL CAPACITY (How you relate to the applied usage of math) Math is a natural talent like art or music and requires a certain natural preference. In most instances, you have it or you don't; you like it or you don't. If the individual has talent for math, this section shows where the greatest vocational interest and motivation occurs, and that is where he/she has probably developed the most talent or could. Low ratings for some or all of these factors imply that math, or possibly that specific application of math, is not a motivational factor to this individual. Ben is motivated to work with a wide variety of theoretical math concepts; make original application of those concepts; apply knowledge of advanced mathematical or statistical techniques to new areas of challenge, interest, or opportunity. Motivation is derived from conceptual, analytical, curious, and exploratory thinking. Research and theoretical logic probably appeal greatly to Ben's mind. Statistical, investigative use of mathematics plays a major role in what motivates Ben. This kind of math is valuable for many kinds of engineering activities: mechanical, systems, hydraulic, geological, computer, etc. Methodical, logical, pragmatic, and objectivism are central to the activity. Computers are typically essential for this work. The above examples of activities and descriptions most likely represent an ideal environment. (NOTE: Accounting Control of Numbers is "management math" because management uses it for tracking, analyzing, and verifying business activities and performance). Ben prefers management math because it includes a specialization for managing with math, i.e., making management decisions with knowledge gained from this level of mathematical activity. This includes budgets, operation-based forecasts, competitive risk analysis, etc. (NOTE: Chief Financial Officers, Comptrollers, bank officers, CPAs, and auditors rate high in this trait). Ben has a moderate motivation where business math related to commercial calculations and transactions are called for. This means there exists a natural ability to be competent and accurate with addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. (NOTE: Where the ability does not already naturally exist for Ben, in this instance, motivational levels support training, most likely). Ben may simply lack interest or the motivation to express self vocationally through the use of basic math skills while possibly quite capable. This is most likely demonstrated by consistent inaccuracy when making basic arithmetic calculations. Ben does not prefer activities requiring verbatim perception, recording, and/or processing of details, especially where numbers are involved. LANGUAGE CAPACITY (How you relate to the usage of language) Four language traits are included in the narrative to cover basic activities that utilize words. They aren't very specific, but there are related factors for literary, journalistic, and communicative activities in the Interest, Temperament, Data, People, Aptitude and Reasoning sections. If a high motivational and/or preference level exists for one or more factors in this section, scan those other sections to discover preferences the individual has for those activities. Not all jobs call for orators or authors, while some jobs require such skills. Ben is highly motivated to consider creative writing and communicating at professional levels. Preferences are holistic, conceptual, imaginative, and creative. "Ideas trigger more ideas" can probably be said about Ben. High motivational levels for this worker trait indicate an interactive combination of literary and philosophical traits. As Dean W. R. Inge said, "Literature flourishes best when it is half a trade and half an art." That probably makes a great deal of sense to Ben. Motivation at this level indicate preferences that probably include writing fiction, poetry, scripts for movies or television, advertising copy, marketing copy, teaching creative writing, etc. Ben is motivated to describe, explain, teach, illustrate, and interpret. This is a journalistic trait dedicated to inform people. Social, leadership, influential, technical, service, and functional traits are involved as well. Therefore, it is necessary to review all worker traits to more closely identify Ben's preferences relative to this trait. For Ben technical information management is not a motivational factor. There is seemingly too much detail, routine, and paper work to maintain interest beyond a brief period of time. Ben does not pay particularly close attention to non-motivational information, data, or detail such as elementary and basic instructions. The natural preference may be to simply use common sense or to experiment in order to figure it out.

You may be young or old, outgoing or shy. Either way, you revel in the role of the role model, offering to speak to younger versions of yourself and openly want to help them.
