Over the years I've taken a look at what kind of person I am. Here are some of the conclusions I've reached:

  • I am intelligent.
    I know, everyone thinks he/she is intelligent, but tests taken in the past, have indicated that I am.

  • I have a low boredom threshhold.
    This does not mean that I am not willing to do large amounts of "grunt work" but I will be looking for ways to make the process better while doing it. I tend to have a problem with the "We do it this way because we do it this way because we have always done it this way" attitude. I am always willing to work with others when devising/revising a system.

  • I am curious.
    This ties in with the previous point. I am constantly trying to learn new things, whether it is a computer program, how parts of a company work together, or why things are the way they are.

  • I am honest.
    There have been times when this has gotten me in trouble. I do try to be tactful, but not always successfully. I gennerally try to keep quiet when I have the option, but if I am asked for my opinion, I give it.

  • I am (or can be) stubborn.
    Once I am working on a problem, I don't quit until I have it solved. I am certainly willing to hear the opinions of others, but if I remain convinced I am right, I will fight for what I believe in.
