Taking a Skill Assessment Test

Behaviors Section
Behavioral research suggests that the most effective people are those who understand
themselves, both their strengths and weaknesses, so they can develop strategies to meet
the demands of their environment.
A person’s behavior is a necessary and integral part of who they are. In other words, much of
our behavior comes from “nature” (inherent), and much comes from “nurture” (our upbringing).
It is the universal language of “how we act,” or our observable human behavior.
In this report, we are measuring four dimensions of normal behavior. They are:
How you respond to problems and challenges.
How you influence others to your point of view.
How you respond to the pace of the environment.
How you respond to rules and procedures set by others.
This report analyzes behavioral style; that is, a person’s manner of doing things. Is the report
100% true? Yes, no and maybe. We are only measuring behavior. We only report statements
from areas of behavior in which tendencies are shown. To improve accuracy, feel free to make
notes or edit the report regarding any statement from the report that may or may not apply, but
only after checking with friends or colleagues to see if they agree.
