Since I'm a pencil hoor, I would have stuffed several of those babies into my pockets.

And I am happy that such tests mean nothing to me, and if I had to take one....well...I'd just take the pencils.

The instrument was designed to assess an individual's precision psychomotor skills.

The task being recruited for, involves replacing micro-electronic components
in confined workspace, during a limited window of opportunity, in a dynamic environment.

I scored above average and was asked if I would like to particpate in a simulation lab
secondary test in Cupertino, CA. I will give them my response on Monday.

Some folks were told that the results may reveal early signs of Parkinson's Disease,
whilst others were told, "Thank you for participating."

It sounds almost as much fun as hard labor in a rock quarry would be. Best of luck! Smile

Sounds like they're looking for people to work in a sweatshop fixing broken iPads...

I'm leaning towards participating. I always welcome
the opportunity to visit the bay area.

You could have played a game of operation to find that out.

Since they are giving different answers to different folks I still think they might be disingenuous.

Unless you think they are just telling you the truth and lying to the rubes.

Watch your back Devious.

rockwall, Your photo is really distressing, you may need an ointment.

Thank you Mary, five of us were offered the opportunity.
We've decided to have some fun with it and give it a go.

Thank you for your concern Mary. I think I'll feel better after Halloween.

Yup, chomping on the fat little children always plumps you up nicely for the winter. Clears up those bloodshot eyes, too.

Did you ever participate in the secondary test, Devious?

@Rockwall,
Welcome back guy, you sort of fell off the face of the Earth.

I most certainly did. I will be informed in the latter part of January,
as to my selection. Reference and background checks are being run on me
as we speak, according to one reference who happens to be a former neighbor.

I feel that I performed remarkably. I learned much
about why certain protocols were followed in retrospect.

I was also interviewed by the project manager, who shared my love
of sleight of hand. The topic came up during our discussion on
digit dexterity.
