Are You Influenced By Others Emotions in the Workplace?

I’ve taken a fair number of assessments throughout my life.  Most of which were taken in an academic setting during a Psychology or Sociology course in college.  When I applied to work at affintus I was actively searching for open employment opportunities.  affintus was the first pre-hire job match solution I encountered during the application process.

This post is about my Work Culture preference which deals with an organization’s approach to opposition – you know, whether you like a work culture where ideas are routinely debated and argued or one where people debate only the most important ideas.

The anchors of this work culture dimension are agreeable and critical. Neither is right or wrong, they just describe the way organizations tend to approach ideas and mistakes.
