Open Letters to Celestia - #22Dear Princess Celestia,
Sometimes I wish to write to you about a specific thing, but am unable. Sometimes, I am well within ability to write to you, but cannot seem to arrive upon a topic that I feel worthy of your time--assuming, of course, the suspension of disbelief that would imply that your time is worth more to you than it is to me. Unfortunately, this is not one of those occasions where I am both willing and able, not to say that I'm unwilling.
TL;DR: I don't know what to say, but I want to try.
Things have gone relatively well this last week. Rather nice all in all, having had a job interview on friday and another job contact as well that, frankly, I don't know why I'm stalling for. I'm procrastinating and beating myself up about it doesn't seem to help. So once again I'm at an impasse where things to do are piling up but I don't know what move to make.
Despite not feeling nearly as terrible in the past few days as I have
Oh my goodness.
I took a personality questionnaire for an employment opportunity, and I feel like my honest answers to its questions really paid off. It seems to be describing me to a degree that I find quite

Personal Strengths/Career Needs
In Terms of Enterprising vs Support Role Possibilities

In a structured, defined and organized work environment you would be well able to achieve the results required in the job. In a less clearly defined or in a somewhat disorganized situation you would tend to be cautious. You would tend to avoid situations which create conflict or pressure in business or in your personal life. Your greatest personal productivity and satisfaction will likely be found in a routinized service or support role.In Terms of Your Style & Strength of Various Motivations
People would describe you as being very calm, steady, unhurried, stable, dependable and cooperative. They would see you as motivated by a deep and essentially selfless concern for the well-being and the needs of others. In your career development, you would find that your greatest satisfactions and best personal productivity would come from being able to commit your effort, within a 'people oriented' organization, to the achievement of longer term goals which are clearly related to alleviating distress or improving the quality of life of the recipients of the product or service.In Terms of Your Independence vs Your Need to Be in the 'Team'
You would work best and with the greatest satisfaction in a group of people who are like you in their strong commitment to the 'team'. You would enjoy the kind of technical, intellectual and personal interactions that come with working in a close-knit team. You would accept supervision but would also like to co-direct the group on some projects or in some parts of the job.In Terms of Your Orientation Towards the 'People' Side of Business
You would be described as extremely sociable, entertaining, cheerful, genial and outgoing. In addition to being a fluent talker, you would be comfortable with new people, value social interaction and make new friends easily. Generally, you would be a good company representative and have the ability to communicate with a wide variety of people in a number of different functions. Being extremely sociable could make you somewhat sensitive to rejection.In Terms of Your Orientation Towards Technical & Practical Concerns
You would be described as quite logical, reflective, analytical, factual and practical. A job requiring the solving of intellectual or conceptual problems would stimulate a person such as you. You would have a flair for technically oriented and detailed work. Taking on challenges to learn and use new information in a field that interests you would be rewarding in itself.© 1993-2009 Selection Testing Consultants International Ltd.

What To Seek/What To Avoid In Jobs
What Should You Look for In a Job/Career that Matches You Best?
+ Look for a position in the support or service function within a company where you can confirm that the role has a well structured and organized function. In considering the job, see if there is a detailed job description and daily work plan. If possible talk to others in the company about the job.
+ It is important for you that you find a career position which allows you to focus your talents and your energies on products or services which you are convinced have real merit in improving the life of the people who receive them.
+ You should seek opportunities to work most or all of the time in a group that comprises people like you who are also strong on the 'team' approach to getting the job done.
+ Look for employment that provides you with lots of people contact on a daily basis. A job with a great deal of person to person interaction and public relations opportunities would be ideal for you.
+ A job with some learning and technical requirements would be quite satisfying. The opportunity to be creative and to put your new found knowledge into action would also be appealing to you.What Should You Avoid in Jobs/Careers that Don't Match You?
- Avoid any job where the work situation seems to lack a precise structure or where you feel the company or the particular department is not adequately organized. If the position requires you to be responsible for both planning and doing the job, it may create far too much pressure for you.
- Avoid positions which are simply money oriented and which have no demonstrable worthwhile impact on the lives of the people who receive the product or services.
- Avoid work situations in which there is lax supervision and those situations which essentially prevent you from becoming part of a 'team' to get the job done.
- You should avoid employment that would isolate you from people. A job that lacks social interaction would not be adequately stimulating and rewarding to you.
- You should avoid jobs that are not intellectually challenging, creative and those that do not offer a chance for personal growth in a technical or practical sense.© 1993-2009 Selection Testing Consultants International Ltd.
