 High motivation indicates that this person is deliberate enough, concentrates enough, figures enough, and watches detail enough to be able to add, subtract, multiply and divide—and come up with the right numbers. For some bright people, this is hard to do—or very unlikely to happen (e.g., dialing a phone number, or putting the right address on an envelope).. Transposing numbers may a problem for some persons, so they don't rate well for this Worker Trait. Moderate motivation indicates that this person has a good head for numbers—adds, subtracts, multiplies and divides—and comes up with the right numbers each time. Some assume this is natural for all persons. In reality it isn't so. Low motivation indicates that this person will tend to be less than accurate or consistently correct when making basic arithmetic calculations. While possibly quite capable of such actions, it may simply be a lack of interest or the motivation to express oneself vocationally through the use of basic math skills.
