    I have worked in Lower End management, mostly just Human Resources stuff, so business efficacy was never really a hard press. I didn't mind it, it appealed to the organisational wonderboy inside of me, but it came in between me and my work friends (they found the playfulness was gone once ENTJ Extraordinaire was truly unleashed )

    Hiring new people, promoting occupational development and well-being in the work Unhappy. I don't like that side of management, working with people is for a reason, not my only purpose so to speak.

    Deciding on the company's purchasing contracts, inventory and storage Great! Sounds fairly interesting to me, and a decent use of logic. (figuring out what's needed and where to put it in the future).

    Directing the technical research development program in a space technology corporation Pretty happy. I'd probably rather doing research as opposed to having to oversee everything though.

    Planning, coordinating and controlling the efficiency of building airplane parts Very happy. This is where I thrive, I'm very good at looking at what other people are doing and figuring out how to make it better/more efficient.

    Overseeing the marketing, production and personel as the head of a building company Mediocre. Marketing would drag me down, personnel would be okay, production would be something I like doing.

    Overseeing a team of construction engineers at the construction site of a large bridge Quite happy.

    Leading the creative development of a fantasy RPG game and managing a team of artists Jumping off the unfinished bridge at the above scenario. Forcing me to be creative = No. Making me oversee them? Doom for all.

    Improving border security by detecting smuggling and illegal immigration as the head of a customs office Happy. I'd be wanting to work more, and being very successful.

    What do you do?

    What is required of you the most in this job?

    Where you work at?

    It helps to be a/an ____ person in your position (check those that apply!)
    -entrepreneurial
    -risk-orientated
    -bureaucratic
    -tough-minded
    -empathetic
    -conservative
    -introverted
    -flexible
    -orderly
    -agreeable
    -innovative
    -responsible
    -accommodating
    -detailed
    -openminded
    -skilled with people
    -troubleshooter

    What are the professions of your immediate subordinates?

    What was the key job requirement to enter your position, as opposed to one of the subordinate positions?

    Were you promoted to this job, were you recruited as a outsider or did you start as a manager some other way, like via internal transfer?

    How did you first notice you had managerial qualities?

    How did you make the company notice you, and acknowledge your managerial potential?

    Did personality theory help you choose career path or advance in it?

    Sorry if there's lot, of course I'm jumping at the opportunity of interviewing one manager

    I think there are parts of this I'd like and parts I wouldn't.

    Deciding on the company's purchasing contracts, inventory and storage
    Sounds boring

    Directing the technical research development program in a space technology corporation
    Very cool.

    Planning, coordinating and controlling the efficiency of building airplane parts
    Sounds decent.

    Overseeing the marketing, production and personel as the head of a building company
    I'd like most of the jobs on this list, but some are less exciting than others. This is in the less exciting pile.

    Overseeing a team of construction engineers at the construction site of a large bridge
    Same comment as the one above.

    Leading the creative development of a fantasy RPG game and managing a team of artists
    Ding! Ding! Ding! Winnar!

    Improving border security by detecting smuggling and illegal immigration as the head of a customs office
    I don't think I'd like this one, because I'm ambivalent on the immigration issue. No matter which way the policy changed I'd be pissed off.

    This kind of won't absolutely be found in most businesses. If it's found, it's probably named as Human Resources Manager or something like that.

    Worried, stressed.
    Deciding on the company's purchasing contracts, inventory and storage
    Anxious, but contemplative.
    Directing the technical research development program in a space technology corporation
    Excited, intrigued, but a little concerned.
    Planning, coordinating and controlling the efficiency of building airplane parts
    Curious and focused.
    Overseeing the marketing, production and personel as the head of a building company
    Exhausted.
    Overseeing a team of construction engineers at the construction site of a large bridge
    Tense and hyper-vigilant.
    Leading the creative development of a fantasy RPG game and managing a team of artists
    Proud, inspired, awed.

    Improving border security by detecting smuggling and illegal immigration as the head of a customs office
    Suspicious, observant, curious.

    I like some of these, but they generally feel like I'd have way too much hanging over my head. They seem interesting, though.

    Hiring new people, promoting occupational development and well-being in the work

    Great! I'd love to do this.

    Deciding on the company's purchasing contracts, inventory and storage

    I could do this, but I have no experience in something like this nor have I given it thought.

    Directing the technical research development program in a space technology corporation

    I don't know if I'd be well suited for this job... but hey I could try! I don't think I'd want to manage something like this though.

    Planning, coordinating and controlling the efficiency of building airplane parts

    Not for me... too many details, too much risk if I screw up.

    Overseeing the marketing, production and personel as the head of a building company

    Stressful, but I could do it definitely.

    Overseeing a team of construction engineers at the construction site of a large bridge

    Ugh, same with the airplane parts. Too many details, too stressful, too much risk.

    Leading the creative development of a fantasy RPG game and managing a team of artists

    Yes! Totally! I've always wanted to do something like this.

    Improving border security by detecting smuggling and illegal immigration as the head of a customs office

    I don't think that I would have the passion needed for me to function at my fullest, since I really don't care about immigration enough and I think that the people in the country should just deny immigrants jobs.

    I didn't have the time to research this one so well, so excuse me if there are gross errors of fact.
    Still, like killing people but only 5,000,000,000 of them and I would be content with the jobs, any of them.

    Who wouldn't? I would investigate the effects of weightlessness on my ego.

    Logistics? Why just airplane parts? This job would apply equally to just about any manufacturing process. But having something to do with designing the parts themselves might be interesting.

    That, or process engineering applied to mechanical manufacturing processes, taking people and manufacturing methods in the equation. True, it could be for almost any end product. I told what the people would work for in the other descriptions
