When introduced to someone, I think it is important to indicate your level of experience.
I enjoy being competitive with others in work-related projects.
I prevent interruptions when I'm busy.
I prefer the responsibility of working alone on a task rather than as part of a team.
I am uncomfortable when I have to give a direct order.
I actively focus on restoring harmony when there's been a conflict.
If I have a major personal problem, I prefer to talk it over with colleagues.
I prefer to discuss work problems with others rather than solve them alone.
I'm unconcerned if someone at work doesn't like me, as long as I have their respect.
I like being motivated by challenges where you must prove you’re better than someone else.
When chatting, I prefer to talk about things and activities rather than personal matters.
If I'm confused, I try to work it out myself rather than ask for help or advice.
If I disagree with an explicit order, I debate it or find a way to get around it.
Unresolved conflict makes me very uncomfortable.
If someone appears to be upset, I'll find an opportunity to let them talk about it with me.
If I come across new information I go out of my way to share it with my colleagues.
I like it if my work status is higher than that of others around me.
I enjoy challenging someone’s point of view and seeing if I can win.
I get annoyed with people who let their emotions interfere with their effectiveness.
When I know what needs to be done, I find that consultation in the workplace isn't worth the time it takes.
If I've got to discipline someone at work, I start or finish with an apology.
I would rather compromise than create an argument.
I rely on gut feeling more than logic when making difficult decisions.
I would be hurt if a close colleague spoke against a project of mine when other important people are present.
