As I was waking up this morning, I started surfing Reddit. One post, in particular, jumped out at me. In this post, the writer (OP in Reddit parlance) had been asked to take a personality test at work by a new supervisor. The OP was asking if this was something they should agree to do.
The responses varied. Some were mildly positive, but most were very cynical since this sort of testing can be misused by bad management. However, this got me thinking and, eventually, writing this post.
