With reference to our Swipe Quiz, Engineering people typically share that they are Investigative and Organized. Of course this further varies by type of Engineering role. Check how well you match these descriptions, or take our SWIPE QUIZ to get a more accurate picture.

Investigative. “You enjoy going into the deep on things. You are thorough. You ask critical questions and think logically and systematically in finding solutions. In your eyes all problems must primarily be solved in an analytical and reasoned way. You avoid ‘just doing’ something. You like being consulted for your knowledge and analytical skills. You enjoy to study things. Intellectual development or scientific inquiry are issues that could be of great importance to you.

Organized. “You love structure and clarity. This provides you an overview of work, and the organizational side of life. You prefer to work according to the rules, stick to some principles, and expect others to do the same. Others may call you meticulous, tidy, tenacious, efficient and structured. You find it important to know where you stand. You don’t leave things to chance. For you to create a checklist is a good thing, and planning is quite natural and desirable for you. You attach great importance to an organized environment.
