Part I: Preparation > Learning Attitude Scale

Chapter 2. Learning Attitude Scale

More than any other factor, your personal attitude toward learning will be the key to your success during your first thirty days on the job. To help you become aware of this (and also become more confident and positive), please complete the following scale. Circle the 10 if you agree 100 percent with the statement. Circle the 1 if you are in total disagreement. Most people fall somewhere in the middle.

It is best to start a job knowing you have plenty to learn. 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 It is best to rely on the knowledge you already have.
Do it their way until you know you have a better way. 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 Do it your own way until you’re told to do it differently.
There is usually more than one way to do a job right. 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 There is usually only one way to do a job right.

It shows a good attitude to say you want to learn. 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 Saying you want to learn demonstrates insecurity on your part.
