Test - Competency for flexibility

Are You Flexible?

Jumping to conclusions, information overload, fast pace, and changes on the one hand, peaceful life, clear rules, and certainty on the other. Most of us experience something from either side of the dilemma. We need a certain excitement and the necessity to adapt and change oneself as well as the feeling of certainty and stability. Nevertheless, the current market prefers flexible people able to respond to demanding and continually changing conditions.
The extent to which we are able to respond flexibly depends of course, on a wide range of both physical and psychological factors. Here we can include primarily our attitude, i.e. the way we approach the surrounding world and the changes that take place in it on a daily basis.
Your results do not express any scientific findings; however, they do help you to know yourself better. They should also make you think.

1. It is necessary to keep increasing one’s knowledge & to fully keep track of the current trends.
