3rd November 1994 was my first ever Psychometric Test (conducted by Thomas International Management Europe Ltd.) reveals thus: “ Mr Vyas is positive and persuasive by nature, an integrative leader who has genuine interest in other people. Being of a friendly nature he gains confidence and respect of others as a result of his poised manner and amiable approach. Group activities both in and out of work are important factors to him, as is meeting new and interesting people. Being positive & inquisitive by nature, Mr Vyas is fairly self-assured & venturesome in majority of his dealings. He takes responsibility seriously. He likes to be given freedom to act & enjoys a challenge. Mr Vyas is a fair listener, kind, accommodating & relaxed in approach. There is a tendency to be careful in his dealings & is likely to be fairly well disciplined. He needs to belong to a team and yet exert independent influence upon it and organise it to act. At work he needs to be in contact with a variety of people and needs to be helpful and provide a service both in terms of providing advice and solutions to problems. He has ability to be thorough and deliberate once the objectives to be achieved are clear. The job should include authority to act independently and could include disciplining others should the occasion arise. Working environment should be informal & wherever possible, decisions should be reached by a consensus. However the emphasis should be on generating a team spirit.” The describing words are ‘Friendly, kind, accommodating, influential, persuasive, organised, disciplined, assertive, confident and thorough.’
