Master’s Program, right?
Deadline driven, correct?
Most folks in these programs are juggling full time work, families, grocery shopping, taking the kids to and fro, trips to the pediatrician, caring for or assisting with elderly parents in addition to trying to cram five plus days of work into three this week with the holiday. Oh, and then there's their homework.
All read: BUSY.
Let me take a shot here and venture to say that you scored high in the “driver” personality – simplified from B-M for clarity’s sake – someone who takes things by the horns. My guess is that your “placed” group is really a mix of all the personality profiles to gauge the abilities of each other to handle not just the task at hand but the in’s and out’s of each person’s personality.
In other words, it’s part of the “test” – how well you can handle different personalities in a work group, a key part of leadership and group dynamics.
Deep breaths here. They have the deadline and I’m assuming they understand what’s expected of them. Try and relax and save your anxiety and frustration for when and if they really do miss turning their work in on time.
