I am working through a unique job interviewing process a series of emails talking about the company and digging deep into my motivations to see if I really fit within the company structure and culture. I am finding the information provided and the exercises very interesting and thought provoking. I truly wish more companies did a system like this asking the deep questions instead of the “tell me about yourself” generic questions that are really not useful in an interview. I do have to admit the ten best habits listed above could be very easy fodder for that question and a couple others that are generally thrown around in a “normal” interview.

I’d like to see if any of my friends or family has any commentary for me based on this? I’m fairly sure I missed a lot about myself that is so natural to me I no longer notice it. Based on what you know of me what are my Unique Talents and Passions?
