    I prefer working in the office, and thought I answered the questions with that mindset. The test results though said I would be a good candidate to work remotely. I do occasionally work at home (big project needing a day or two of heads down) and I would not like to do it everyday. Too quiet. No people. No face-to-face interaction….that is what I thrive on. I also know that my ‘hallway’ conversations have generated the best ideas, new exciting projects, more solutions, contributed to my network, etc. and that is non-existent when working remotely. I do know that it is about flexibility and everyone’s needs are different.

    Working from home or in the office can be equally rewarding; however, as the quiz states if all depends on one’s personality. Working from home is almost equivalent to going to college online, they both require a great deal of self-discipline, time management, and drive.

    Interesting quiz and article. Honestly, I feel it is always variable with different factors coming into play. Even if one is suited for the office environment, it is certainly does not seem right and unfortunately toxic for that person if he/she has to face a micromanager wrongly looking over shoulder or any toxic co-workers.

    Also, even for people telecommuting as long as they have a place that is conducive regarding background noise and less distractions that’s what matters.

    I like working from home, because I spend less time traveling giving me more time to work if I need too. I’m helping my colleagues it doesn’t matter where I am, they are always able to reach me across Canada. I’m getting old and it would be a good reason for me to stay more longer into ADP organization and share my knowledge.

    I strongly feel that working in office is more efficient way instead remotely.
    We always feel to work when we have emergency ofr we feel to. But in this situation the quality of work goes down due to lack of concentration towards work.

    It is improtant to be flexible in any work environment
