Myers-Briggs: Still Relevant?

Recently, I did some research into a company called Cloverleaf, located in Cincinnati, OH, whose goal is to help agile managers follow the first item in the Agile Manifesto: “Individuals and Interactions over Processes and Tools.” They use a series of complex algorithms that consider input from Resumes, DiSC, StrengthsFinder, Myers-Briggs, VIA, Cloverleaf Culture PulseContinue reading “Myers-Briggs: Still Relevant?”

Going Swift, the Apple Way

I’ve been using Windows my whole life, and the only segue I’ve had into Apple was my obsession with the iPod Nano, 6th Generation – which I still have, and pulled out just for this post. Every job that I’ve had has used Windows, and every course I’ve taken in school also used Windows; so, IContinue reading “Going Swift, the Apple Way”

Go Ahead, Be Zealous

Zealous as in “spends a lot of time or energy in supporting something that they believe in very strongly” from Collins, 2017. I want to have encounters with zealous people who are passionate about something because those people are the ones who inspire me to reflect on myself in order to look for changes, without themContinue reading “Go Ahead, Be Zealous”

How to Help Non-Computer People

A “non-computer person/user” is kind of a vague term, but I lump non-computer people into that category of: “I need to access computers, but I’m not sure how to set it up and I don’t really know what this thing really does nor do I care so long as it does its job.” A lotContinue reading “How to Help Non-Computer People”

Best Steps for Self Improvement

How can the United States of America be respected by other nations if the majority of our citizens choose not to be actively supportive of their communities, and have no interest in making it a mandatory requirement? I understand that there are opinions on this which declare thatContinue reading “Is the United States united?”

Discussion vs Lecture

In my opinion, if you are not able to consider someone else’s argument, you have no business opening a discussion. Furthermore, if you aren’t willing to discuss a topic, it is not longer a discussion, but a lecture wherein there is no growth, improvement, or sharing of knowledge. Thinking back on the debates that IContinue reading “Discussion vs Lecture”

Judging Debates

About two weeks ago, an intern from Wooster High School asked if I would be willing and/or interested in being a debate judge. I pointed out that as an office assistant, and not a lawyer, I probably wasn’t qualified to judge a debate. As it would seem, anyone is welcome to judge these high school studentsContinue reading “Judging Debates”

Ways to Improve a Video

I forgot a lot of the important features that are available in Adobe Premiere Pro, and so both of these videos fell flat in terms of detail and clarity.
