Colour tests quite literally reveal a CEO’s true colours

Thursday, 11 February, 2010

The typical CEO may not be quite the mover and shaker many people perceive them to be, if the collective results from the personality colour test are anything to go by.

The color test shows that the typical CEO is more sensitive and private than the typical person and is less likely to be a perfectionist or to be dominant and more likely to be emotionally unstable. CEOs, it turns out, are not as self-assured as the public at large, and they are more cooperative and less forceful than the typical person, says Dewey Sadka, who has spent the last 15 years refining the color test completed by the 877 current and retired CEOs and chairmen.

Why did the job-hunter cross the road when the light was red?

Tuesday, 1 December, 2009

Should you consider establishing a start up (or being an entrepreneur of some sort), or would a career as an accountant be more your thing? Figure out your best career-path options (no pun intended) based on the way you cross the street.

If you can’t arrange for an interviewee to cross the street to get to your building, arrange for the interview at a Starbucks, cafe or restaurant – preferably in Manhattan during rush hour, but any reasonably-sized city will do. Watch carefully. Secretly videotape it, if at all possible. These few seconds will tell you more about their workplace capabilities than an hour of tough questions.

  • Bloggers Beware! Your Privacy Might be at Risk: this is a must read for all bloggers. Did you know details of your home address may be online, in the public domain, for all to see, without your knowledge or approval? Even if you are using a business or PO Box address on your Whois records and the like?
  • Finding Your Blogging DNA: by Glen Stansberry. What sort of blogger are you? A muser who writes when the inspiration strikes, or a reporter who updates daily? Might be a bit of both for me I think…
  • Hat Heads vs. Bed Heads: there’s two types of bloggers and it seems there are two types of working style also. “Every project and every office has multiple personality types. How you work with them and how you manage the rationale of decisions and feedback is crucial to your success.”
  • 50 Practical Home Office Feng Shui Tips: for those who work from home. Use the principles of Feng Shui to organise or improve your work space. 50 is quite a lot, but you should still find a few good ideas here. Love #4 though: “don’t lose sight of the door”. Indeed!
  • My Star Wars Collection by Josh Budich. A kind of appropriate follow up to yesterday’s Star Wars related post!
