2. Connector, Maven, Salesman: 02:26
I'm _supposed_ to be a Maven. That's what computer geeks do - they geek. They grok. They learn something inside out. Strangely, though, I have the feeling that this isn't quite my thing, that this isn't quite what I'm meant to do. I guess it relates to my teaching philosophy. I'm not the expert! <laugh> I don't know everything, and I'm much happier helping people learn than trying to teach them everything they need to know. Besides, hanging out with people far more brilliant than I am makes me feel decidedly un-Maven-ish. =)
You know what I have _tons_ of fun doing? Connecting people with other people. I really, really want to help people make things happen, and if I can connect them with other people with similar or complementary passions, that would be totally awesome! I also _really_ have a lot of fun listening to people. I sell, sell, sell - not stuff, but ideas, passion, confidence... I sell people themselves. I sell dreams of what they can do. I _love_ doing that! (And to think I used to be an INTJ...)
So I need your help figuring out what I'm going to do with my life. =) Software developer? I can do that, but there's just so much else I _also_ want to do. I'd love it if you could help me imagine what my future can be so that I can prepare for it better. =D It's not exactly the kind of thing you'd find in, say, What Color is Your Parachute...
Random Japanese sentence: 猫がソファーでねむっている。 The cat is sleeping on the sofa.
