Those Psych Test
Recently my organization required that
everyone take a psychological test (Birkman)
to determine what jobs we did best.
My results stated that I was perfect for
a Receptionist Position! Never mind that
I work from home on the computer about
70 hrs/wk. and love it - especially when the
family is out. I won't even answer the phone
when I'm working.
Fortunately, I can determine what I do
professionally but what about the poor
souls who are evaluated by these things
(and I've taken others with equally bad
evaluations of my interest & job skills).
Since I work for a Christian organization,
wouldn't they be better off to save the money
and determine what Gifts of the Spirit that folks
had? I'll bet Jesus didn't consider having equal
numbers of red, blue, green & yellow personalities
(Birkman) when He was selecting His 12 Disciples.
Oh well, we all know that Freud was a lot smarter
than our Creator. Freud knew that we could all
be put in a box and that we weren't all fearfully
& wonderfully made! After all, many folks hope
that there's only one of me anyway!
Just for the record, I've been told that I have
the gifts of teaching, discernment and evangelism
so what colors are those Sigmund?
Personal Factoid: In the past, I was a Youth Leader.
