Case Study: Your CEO is looking for someone to head up the Potato-Smashing department. This person must be highly critical, and a bit pessimistic. They also need to be dutiful and willing to follow instructions at all cost. High attention to detail, and more focus on the tasks of potato smashing than the people doing the smashing! Potato smashing is a big deal. In the city of Spud, mashed potatoes make up 45% of the GDP; and Potatoes ‘R’ Us is a monopoly. The CEO needs to see your Big Five Personality scores, and a brief explanation as to why you are, or are not a good fit.
Based on your Big Five Personality scores, and what you know from the readings, would you make a good fit for the new Manager of Potato Smashing role? Be sure to do the following:
- Report how you scored for each scale.
- Explain how you would interpret each score.
- Provide an overall conclusion of why you are or are not a good fit.
