Y-Work With Detail, Data, Records, Inventory: natural, motivated perception, retention and recall of detail on a sustained, logical basis; awareness and retention of specific information and ability to classify it or relate it to other similar things.
Work with detail, data, records, inventory requiring sustained perception, retention and recall of detail relative to clerical, administrative, computational, technical, systematic, operational and/or mechanical activities. (This trait should not be given importance apart from other complementary factors. Low perception of detail per se may be an asset if other traits cause good perception of essential detail and simultaneously discard trivial detail.)
|High motivation indicates that this person has excellent perception, retention and literal recall of detail per se. This is a valuable talent in clerical, computational, administrative, literary, technical, operational, supervisory, and/or managerial activities. It has less vocational importance if some usually-related traits are not equally motivated. It is therefore important to study all Worker Trait factors to see how this talent fits with, or complements related talents. (note: this awareness of detail per se may be accompanied by "awareness of essential detail" which is related to essence rather than to fact or data. See factor "intuition: ideas, concepts, creativity, options" in the factors report, under Temperament for the Job.)|
|Moderate motivation indicates that this person has good ability to remember, find and use exact detail. This is a very useful talent in conjunction in clerical, computational, administrative, literary, technical, operational, supervisory and/or managerial activities.|
|Low motivation indicates that this person does not see, retain and/or recall verbatim detail and, instead, shows an awareness of concepts, patterns, general ideas, etc. This person "gets the drift" of what is seen, read or heard. Recall is in general and relativistic terms and not in specifics. Numbers are sometimes transposed. Words are read as form or pattern rather than by specific letters.|
