Robots who read my mind

So in the beginning of the year, I took a work/personality test for a new job. I thought it might be fun to share those results.

  • Socially-focused, he naturally empathizes with people, easily seeing their point of view or understanding their emotions. Positive, non-threatening communication
  • Teaches and Shares; he’s often working collaboratively with others and helps whenever he can
  • Accommodating; most comfortable working with others, he often puts the team/company goals before his own personal goals. Promotes Teamwork by actively sharing authority.
  • Proactively connects quickly to others; He’s open and sharing of himself. Builds and leverages relationships to get work done.
  • Comfortable fluent and fast talk, in volume. He enthusiasticlly persuades and motivates others by considering their point of view and adjusting his delivery
  • Collaborative; usually works with and through others. Intuitive understanding of team cohesion, dynamics, and interpersonal relations

Lawrence is unassuming, unselfish and has a genuine interest in other people and a strong intuitive understanding of them. Outgoing and friendly, he enjoys working with others and is lively, warm company

A pleasant and extroverted person, Lawrence is an effective communicator, able to stimulate and motivate others while being aware of and responsive to their needs and concerns. His congenial personality and friendly, interested attitude make him readily approachable. He gets along easily with a wide variety of people.

He drive is directed at working with and for others. He derives particular satisfaction from doing things for others, for the company, for his management, for the team and for the company’s customers. Cooperative and willing, he can be a particularly effective teacher and communicator of the company’s policies, programs and systems.

Working at a faster-than-average pace, he is attentive to details and both quick and accurate in handling them. He is however, too impatient to enjoy working with details as repetitive routine or as his primary responsibility.

Eager to be sure that things are done exactly right, Lawrence will follow up carefully and closely if his work requires he delegate details to others. When it is necessary for him to be critical, he will try to do that in a constructive, supportive manner. His sense of urgency and his sense of duty combine to make him actively concerned about the timeliness, as well as the correctness, of any work for which he is held responsible.

In general, Lawrence is a cautious and careful person, respectful of company authority and traditions, a specialist who avoids risk and uncertainty by taking care to do things properly, working within the company’s formal organization.

It’s creepy how accurate it actually is. Maybe I should use it for my “ABOUT ME”s the internet seems to be so interested in

This is a hell of a throwback picture. Taken in I think 1992, this was a family get together with all of my cousins on my Mom’s side of the family. I’m the kid on the far right next to my Pappy… Yes, I still call him that.

Gone Fishing: Day 13

11AM

This time of year, Downtown Charleston can be a loud and busy place. I try to seek out a quiet sport away from everyone, with the added challenge of not going inside of buildings or breaking the law. My adventure nearly drove me off the Charleston peninsula

Follow Up:
  So I thought a bit more about how unsettling this assignment really was. At first, my initial thought was to find a loud spot, then move away from it in a linear path. What it became was a maze of which sound was it’s walls and the wall were always moving. As I moved away from one sound, it was quickly replaced by another. I often felt corner and trapped like I had walked into a dead end. Once I moved away from the noise of the city I would hear birds chirping, waves crashing and trees rustling. The sounds that I would normally find peace in, became frustrating and grating as I continued forward.
  The Place I finally found was far enough from the coast that i couldn’t hear it, the trees were few and the building blocked the wind and there was not a person or car in sight. It was almost quite.

  After this assignment, I recalled a time I actually didn’t hear anything outside. It was during the recent Ice storms in January. Basically, it was too cold for any animals to be about, to icy for anyone to drive, and the trees were literally frozen solid so that even a strong breeze couldn’t shake a single leave.
It was an eery and lonely feeling for it to be that quiet outside

Say what you want about Andrew Ryan, he sure delivered on the cheap hotdog front.
At the end of the day I think that’s what really counts.

They maybe super cheap, but let’s not forget Rapture was a objectivist wonderland free of regulation. Who knows what “meats” would be in a hot dog made by an ultra capitalist super libertarian.
I’ll eat the $2 racist hot dogs before a 25c libertarian hot dogs any day, at least they care about good food

I disagree. Hotdogs aren’t measured in “quality”, they’re measured in hotdogs per dollar. Well known fact, that.

There are clearly 2 kinds of hot dogs, delicious meal hot dogs like Nathan’s Famous or Hebrew National, and garbage hot dogs per dollar snacks like Oscar Mayer or Bryan Wieners eaten only out of desperation or self loathing. I have no doubts Father Comstock knew the different between the two and wouldn’t have such disgraceful hot dogs in his beautiful city.
