Crazy

Criticism, like rain, should be gentle enough to nourish a man's growth without destroying his roots.

I am amused by the trends that are spread via blogs, like a wildfire.
Many are silly surveys that brand us to a particular Carebear, or Smurf.
Or a Marvel Hero, or some precious stone, or some character from a TV series.
They may be entertaining, but silly still, because
Most of them lack depth. Either too few questions, or too few categories.
I recall some really general ones that could fit anyone into any category.
Nevertheless, I recall some good ones.
The Myer Briggs one was good, and some time ago someone posted one
On whether we could really tell between asians, and gays from straight and vice versa.
That was pretty interesting.

Now there's the Johari Window.
Wikpedia says that a Johari Window is a metaphorical tool intended to
Help people understand their interpersonal communication and relationships.
Primarily used in self help groupsas a heuristic device.
Hmmm ... heuristic. It's been a while since I saw this word being used.
And so, here I am, on the wagon:

Please help take part in Wildy's Johari Window - Positive Traits.

Please help take part in Wildy's Nohari Window - Negative Traits.

Honestly I'd prefer if you would just send me an email and tell me what an as**h*e I am.
If I really am one, I'll at least learn more about it and attempt to improve.
If I am not, then at least I can clear up whatever air of misunderstanding there is and make things better.
There's nothing worse than unsettled business, that festers and taints.

Let's see what happens.

And thank you for your time!
