Temperament For The Job

6 Independent, Self-Planned, Self-Performed Activities: working alone and apart in physical isolation from others, even though the activity might be integrated with the work of others in some other way (like an airplane pilot and a person in an airport control tower). Just as important, this Worker trait includes self-sufficiency, self-drive, self-achievement, and enough talent to successfully perform without help.

Independent, self-planned, self-performed activity requiring self-motivated, self-determined and/or self-sufficient activities; working alone or apart from others; relying on individual responsibility and discretion. This does not require, suggest or imply egocentricity, selfishness or anti-social orientation.

High motivation indicates that this person is talented, self-sufficient and goal oriented, demonstrating independence in two ways: (1) motivated to manage own operational, technical, professional, scientific, and/or administrative activities without management or involvement by others; or (2) impersonally but objectively, manage the skills of others as utility in the process of getting things done. The prime motivation is to utilize what is at hand to accomplish vocational objectives. That could be done exclusively with one's own talents, or it could include applying the talents of others. If it includes management of people, they are expected, perhaps even required, to perform at quality skill levels. Personality and psychology are not included. A high motivation indicates that this person does not want to be managed or dominated by others, or to rigidly conform to organization rules or expectations.
Moderate motivation indicates that this person is talented, self-sufficient, and goal-oriented. Work activity and goals are more important than association, interaction or involvement with people. If vocation calls for working with others, or managing the skills of others as a part of achieving work objectives, this person is motivated and equipped to do that. Others are selected for existing, deliverable skills and then performance is expected. But independent, self-directed, self-achieved activity is preferred.
Low motivation indicates that this person functions best in a given, known, managed and supported organizational position and role in which to functionally serve the interests of the organization. This is an involved service role.
