Labels aren't everything but I like these
What I recall most is that, while it was supposed to be team building and instead you had those who defined themselves as introverts expressing a bit of aggression at those they defined as extroverts for tiring and/or wearing them out.
I found the whole experience to be a bit disturbing and this whole us versus them business to be a serious facilitator failure.
Perhaps because I've always been a serious borderline personality on such intro/extro silly scales, I just don't get all wrapped up in types and labels -- too much like shorthand that keeps you from actually paying attention to the person in the moment.
Sometimes I get energy from people and sometimes they drain me. Some people drain me more than others.
And for those of you just convinced I'm such an extrovert, how come I can literally go for days without uttering a single word to another living soul and be okay with that? The answer is that I'm not that much of an extrovert but I'm also not that much of an introvert either
So mostly I don't think that labels make much sense and they should never be relied upon as predictive of behaviour.
I can pretty confident that I've always had some if not all of the behaviours that earned me the need and geek labels but I also know that very few people would have believed I had any of those inclinations or labeled me as such when I was in my t-decades.On Ravelry, one of the few groups I belong to is the GeekCraft group and that's where the series of silly tests came into my life.
I may be a total computer freak but I am more nerd than geek and I'm not much of a dork.
Here's the first test result:
78% nerd, 35% geek and 9% dork.
On a peer to peer basis, I was:
88% more nerdish
46% more geekish
03% more dorkish
So does this mean that most women my age are more dorky than I am? I feel so socially adept.
