How to know you are unfit for project management?

I have been promoted to a project manager position last week. I still haven't done any real work yet and I'm not sure if I will like my new position or not.

I'm a very efficient person, and if I think that I'm not fit for the job, then I will ask to be switched back to my previous position.

Are there any signs for me to know if I'm unfit for project management?

There are several signs to know that you are unfit for project management:

- You are disorganized, by nature
- Your mail client gets more and more emails in and not much out
- Most of your email messages are still not read - and you're not reading as much as you're getting
- You don't have people skills
- You think that project management is giving orders to people
- You think of team members as resources with no feelings
- You're doing project management just because it pays well, and not because you like it

I think there are many other signs as well - but the ones above are the ones I was able to think of at the moment.
