WE ASKED TWO MARIE CLAIRE CON­TRIB­U­TORS TO TAKE THE TEST

Marie Claire (South Africa) - - REAL LIFE -

RE­BECCA DAVIS, JOUR­NAL­IST What you see as your two key strengths and weak­nesses Strengths: Funny and gen­er­ous. Weak­nesses: Messy and not as­sertive enough. What your part­ner thinks Strengths: Sin­cere and funny. Weak­nesses: Chronic napper and bad at time man­age­ment. What a close col­league thinks Strengths: A clear thinker and un­afraid. Weak­nesses: Doesn’t quite be­lieve how tal­ented she is and hates talk­ing on the tele­phone. Your com­ment on feed­back Now I'm won­der­ing what kind of a favour my col­league wants in ex­change for those com­pli­ments! I‘d like to think both my col­league and part­ner are right about the strengths, though I don’t know about ‘un­afraid’; most of the time I’m a bun­dle of anx­i­ety. I can't ar­gue with the weak­nesses – it’s a good re­minder to be more aware of those (and to man­age my time bet­ter!).

SANDISO NGUBANE, COLUM­NIST What you see as your two key strengths and weak­nesses Strengths: De­ter­mined and cour­te­ous. Weak­nesses: I get an­noyed quite eas­ily and have no pa­tience for ig­no­rance. What your sis­ter thinks Strengths: Pas­sion­ate and re­li­able. Weak­nesses: Im­pa­tient and stub­born. What a close col­league thinks Strengths: Your zeit­geist-y world view and how you are able to ar­tic­u­late it. Weak­nesses: Im­pa­tient with peo­ple, and with what you want, when you want it. Your com­ment on feed­back I can’t re­ally say I’m sur­prised, while it’s not al­ways easy to hear what your weak­nesses are, I think these as­sess­ments are rather spot-on.
