Data: Priority and Preference of Mind Activity

1 Coordinate: Plan, Implement, Manage Procedures: manage, expedite, coordinate and/or operate; determining time, place, process and sequence of operations or action to be taken; it literally means to identify utility, then utilizing by controlling and manipulating on the basis of what is to be done and what is to be achieved.

Coordinate: plan, implement, manage procedures required as a mental function, this calls for ability to identify what must or could be done, identify instrumentality or utility of that which can be coordinated (managed, manipulated), assume functional control and management responsibility to achieve procedural objectives. One must manage on the basis of the big picture, or pieces of the picture, or both depending on what the job requires.

High motivation indicates that this person is strongly motivated to coordinate: to take action, to manipulate that which is at hand in order to get the show on the road. Because this trait is strongly motivated, it is very important to see the other factors of this mental activity section, and also the mental priority section, to determine whether this person has first seen the big picture, pulled in important pieces of the picture, made plans and developed strategies before taking action. If coordination is the top priority, it becomes a "General Patton syndrome"—begin the charge, then identify the objective, and hope that someone follows with the supplies. If this trait is equally motivated with other mental traits, it still means enthusiasm and drive to take action, but it is balanced with other related functions. This trait is goal oriented!
Moderate motivation indicates that this person is motivated to coordinate (i.e. manage, manipulate, administer, etc.) that which is at hand to achieve planned, known or strategic objectives. This means that this person intends to do something functional, directional and goal-oriented with thinking processes, decisions, and actions. When and how this person coordinates can be determined by reviewing factors in the interest, temperament, data, and reasoning sections of the Worker Trait Coding System.
Low motivation indicates that this person is not motivated to lead, manage, coordinate, manipulate or administratively control processes. Therefore, mental activity tends to be independent of strategic, competitive, operational or administrative management or manipulation. Thinking tends to be an end in, and of, itself, and possibly somewhat distant from direct, functional applications.
