I Guess I Didn't Fail The Corporate Food Chain's Online Personality Test After All

About two months ago I applied online for a job at a corporate food chain. I like to waitress and I'm broke so it seemed like a good job to go after. I applied online and the application part was pretty quick but then at the end of it, *BAM* they throw a personality test at you!

I feel like I am able to fake my way through most unpleasant things with a smile on my face, but these tests are nerve wracking!! Here are some examples of the test I was sure I'd failed. You tell me how you'd respond.

1. I get angry sometimes.
(Strongly agree, Somewhat agree, Neutral, Somewhat disagree, Strongly disagree)

 2. I have had disagreements with coworkers.
(Strongly agree, Somewhat agree, Neutral, Somewhat disagree, Strongly disagree)

3. I think it is healthy to express my anger.
(Strongly agree, Somewhat agree, Neutral, Somewhat disagree, Strongly disagree)

4. I do not work well with others.
(Strongly agree, Somewhat agree, Neutral, Somewhat disagree, Strongly disagree)


5. I think it is appropriate to get angry at work.
(Strongly agree, Somewhat agree, Neutral, Somewhat disagree, Strongly disagree)

6. I work better alone.
(Strongly agree, Somewhat agree, Neutral, Somewhat disagree, Strongly disagree)

7. I have killed small animals in a fit of rage in the past. I mean, it was a confusing time and no one really knows how to handle puberty, but now I'm extremely devout and have repented my sins.
(Strongly agree, Somewhat agree, Neutral, Somewhat disagree, Strongly disagree)

I guess I guessed the right answer to all of these, because I GOT THE JOB!  In your *FACE* online personality test that probably scores my ability to serve food from what types of herbal anti-depressants I have Googled!!!

Score: New Me: 1 / Old Animal Killing Me: -28.

  1. Talk about a total setup. I HATE tests like that! And hi! I dropped in from Endearingly Wacko. :-) Glad to hear you got the Chili's gig. I'm positive it's how you answered that last question there about killing small animals. ;-)

    1. Thanks for popping by! I'm new to the neighborhood! Yeah, I'm pretty sure whoever it was that came up with the idea to screen people with those tests killed LOTS of small animals in their youth.

  2. I haaaaate questions like that. I mean, yes it's healthy to express your anger! IN GENERAL! Maybe not at work, to customers, sure. But that doesn't mean it's FALSE that it's healthy to express your anger!

    I guess I'm saying I'm very impressed you were hired, because I think my "...well, TECHNICALLY..." approach to these questions would not have gone over well.

    1. I was shocked that I was hired. I lied on about a baker's dozen of them. Thanks for stopping in, Alice!
