A SelectSmart.com Selector by Frank Little of Cincinnati
WHAT CHARACTERISTICS DO YOU HAVE IN COMMON WITH FAMOUS AMERICAN GENERALS? TO INCREASE THE VALIDITY OF EACH STATEMENT PRESS THE "HIGH" KEY IF YOU STRONGLY DISAGREE OR AGREE. PRESS THE "LOW" BUTTON IF YOU AGREE OR DISAGREE ONLY SLIGHTLY. DO NOT ANSWER AS YOU THINK YOU SHOULD BUT HOW YOU REALLY ARE IN CONFLICTS WITH PEOPLE Share Disclaimer.

The first selector question is below.


1. I would rather surprise an enemy in battle than to wait to be fully prepared and completely expected by the enemy
Prioritize your choice above:
High         Medium         Low

High         Medium         Low

Prioritize your choice above:
High         Medium         Low

18. If the following two armies were to fight I would prefer to command a highly mobile, cohesive and motivated army with a strong sense of purpose than to command an army with HALF these qualities but was THREE times larger.

High         Medium         Low
