How can they deny you work for doing something that is legal, and you aren't doing at work?

I have had to take several blood tests to be employed at hospitals. They tell you that they are checking for vaccination titers, but I have a feeling they are also checking for hiv and hep c without your knowledge or consent. This could be just the conspiracy theorist coming out in me. I would love to know from an "insider" whether this is really taking place.

I have never had to take any blood tests for employment, although I probably should have my HepB titer checked.

The only time they ask for drug tests here is when a staff member is suspected of being "impaired" while working, like the time we had a nurse pass out and immediately respond to an opiate antagonist.

Say, wolf, I'd like to know more about that test. Do you have any follow on links for example? I took one like that once, but the results were not shared with me. I think it would be a *marvelous* tool for self examination. I would really appreciate any further information you have about tracking down a such a test. Thanks in advance.

It's called the MMPI-2 (Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Profile, 2nd ed.). I haven't had a copy of the test since gradual school, unfortunately. It tests for some serious pathology, as well as determines whether you're lying to make yourself look good or bad. Even though it's a fill in the circle scansheet, and a big printout pops out of the scoring computer, it has to be administered and interpreted by a psychologist. It's about the $$.

The usual 'personality typing' tests are called "Myers-Briggs" or "Jung" Type tests.

Here are some to get you started.

I have your results:
You enjoy spending time in an on-line community. You are relatively happy with your life, although you get really pissed off at government overstepping its authority. You will meet new and interesting people.

I've taken this type of test for fun once...when the place I work was "trying it on for size". The next thing I know, when I wanted to move up a position, I was taking the test for real only with a different set of questions. One of the questions they actually had the inclination to ask was, "If you were at a party, and everyone left, would you help clean up?" My response was "depends on how good the party was." Nevertheless, I didn't get the position...with hindsight, as it always is, I am glad that I didn't.

I'll need to know this and many other things before I can hire you. Have your titers ready for inspection too, while we're at it.

I have no soul... I act as if I do. You can look but touching will cost you a trip to the Caymans.
