The Recruiter told me to take the predictive index without thinking about it, just go with my gut. So when I received the test in my email, it was a Friday afternoon, and I just opened it up and blasted through it!. I took maybe 2 minutes to complete it. This turned out to be the wrong way to do it, because I flunked it! Not that you can really flunk i this type of test, but I answered it very sparsely, clicking a couple of traits on the 1st page and then a couple more on the 2nd and then hitting submit.

"Whats the strangest position you ever had that you ended up being successful at/loving?" Have to say that the questions were put to me very honestly and I did'nt feel "tricked" or led on in any manner. Truly appreciated the tone and authenticity of Toms approach to finding out about who I was/ & here I had been, as well as what I wanted from the future.
