Organizational and Administrative Skills

With your gift for analyzing systems and structures, you might figure out how to increase your functionality and productivity.
Direct and Focused

Your learning is very focused now, and you’ve got the persistence to master a subject through sheer will and intent. You may feel drawn to taking a class on business management or another subject with real-world applications.
You have high standards now, and might have a tendency to be hard on yourself — be sure to keep your sense of humor!
