Ability to Confront Paperwork

Definition

The willingness and preference to get needed paperwork (reports, record-keeping, correspondence, numbers, forms) done.

This trait measures the degree of procrastination a person goes through in getting their paperwork done. The higher the number the less procrastination.

What the Trait is NOT

It doesn’t measure how neat a person’s desk is but this trait gives an indication of it. It doesn’t measure how capable, how fast and how accurate the person is at doing paperwork but those with high scores are usually more accurate as they are more willing to do paper related work. It does not measure the person’s ability to write or neatness of handwriting.

Low Range

Extreme Low Range

0 to 4 This person will procrastinate doing paperwork. This is not always bad if the person is in sales. In fact, it is very common and a good sign the person is correctly placed. A score like this, which is rare, on this trait could indicate a complete aversion to any sort of paperwork. WARNING: If “Organization” and “Attention to Detail” are also low, these people are telling you in no uncertain terms they will be reluctant administrators.

Poor Range

Low Range

5 to 39 This person will tend to procrastinate doing paperwork. This is not always bad if the person is in sales. In fact it is very common and a good sign the salesperson is correctly placed.

Borderline Range

Medium Range

They will tend to like working in accounting, engineering, data entry, systems analysis, writing reports and other heavily administrative or clerical jobs. It does not mean they will be good at these functions but because they don’t mind doing them they are likely to do these jobs well.

Good Range
