Bio

This bio is based on the test responses to the Insights Preference Evaluator, commissioned by the #1 MBA school in Canada to analyze my management and communication style. I am an ENTJ on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator.

“Andre tends to be seen as strong, analytical and impersonal. Good at organizing, decisive, quick, logical and strong in reasoning power, he values truth in the form of fact, formula, method and judgment. He is a good problem solver because he can absorb necessary factual information and find logical and sensible solutions quickly. Andre can usually get to the heart of any situation and implement an effective solution. Andre’s many accomplishments are achieved mainly through determination and perseverance in reaching or exceeding his high standards. Impatient with what he may see as inefficiency and incompetence, he can take tough decisions when the situation calls for it.”

“He will tend to be concerned with the effect that the decision making process, and its result, will have on others. Others may see his decisions as unrealistic in certain circumstances. He has a tendency towards making higher risk decisions. Andre is willing to admit the truth about people or things that are important to him, is very alert to problems, and seeks to find solutions himself. With his enthusiasm and spontaneity, Andre brings a refreshing approach to decision making.”

“His effectiveness depends on how much personal fulfillment he receives from the current task. Andre enjoys making decisions. He likes to be in control of things and values efficient and effective decision making. As an extraverted, future oriented person, he may fear failure but knows how to turn it on its head into something positive, if the event occurs.”

“He tends to be influenced by the idea, rather than the people behind the idea. He enjoys deciding what ought to be done and can give the necessary instructions to ensure that it is done.”
