Are you impatient but pretty much take charge when you’re the expert on something? Do you need to get things right and will let others know when they aren’t? When given something new to learn or research, are you like a bulldog trying to get all the facts? Would you rather just do things yourself because no one can do it better than you? Do you like being the in-house expert on stuff you know about?
