Re: RU Lazy?

I got a 32. I think I would have gotten about a 60 in school. My inclination is to procrastinate but I overcame it at work. Also, I vacillated on a lot of answers and may be guilty of the self presentation testing error - I didn't want to admit I'm a slouch on some items

Re: RU Lazy?

Score of 44. What score do they give folks that don't finish the test??

I don't consider myself lazy. I am occasionally motivationally challeged!

Unsuited as I am for honest work, I became an engineer.

Got bored at work and took the test..... got I think a 32 or 34....

One of the main problems is all the questions about paying bills... I get them paid on time... don't want to get late fees or deal with the 'other side'...

And I am on time when I say I will be.... but, if something is due next Friday, (which something is....) I estimate the time needed to do it and start around then... why start early when someone might change what is needed and you will just throw away the work you have already done...

I'm not lazy, I'm a highly skilled procrastinator.
