How to Work with and Avoid Becoming a Pain in the Ass
Cool quiz - thanks for sharing. I won't share my results, but it made me think.
This PITA test can give people a better feel for what type(s) of PITA they might resemble at times. After taking the test, try to identify those work situations and coworkers that tend to bring out that PITA type in you. Doing this can help you think of ways to counter your PITA behaviors the next time you're in that situation or interacting with those challenging coworkers. After the test revealed to me that I might have a tendency to be a bit Soggy at times, I was able to pinpoint certain situations at work when my soggyness was most prominent, and I'm now able to get through those situations a little better since I'm more aware and mentally prepared.
I did the quiz last night with my wife and son, and I was surprised by some of their responses. It generated some great discussion, including how a person should react to various situations. It takes some introspection to answer the questions honestly, rather than "correctly." Doing it with someone who knows you well helps to keep you honest--but be careful if you're with a sealed pita!
Wow, got to give credit to navarch for taking the PITA test with his wife. Now that is a good relationship! Good for you navarch for answering the questions honestly and your willingness openly discuss the results.
