Some people say I’m hard work
Some people say I’m hard work.
That may be true.
Some people say I’m a pleasure to work with.
That may also be true.
They may in fact BOTH be true!
I suppose it’s all about #perspective.
The people who do find me hard work are usually the ones that understand me the least, or make the least effort to understand me (or don’t listen well 🙉). And the reverse is also true.
Perhaps it’s why I spend so much time studying human behaviour. In fact if I had my time again I’d probably have studied #psychology rather than Politics, Philosophy and Economics!
I want to understand people - especially those very different to me - and I want to enable myself to be understood. It’s efficient, it’s effective and most of all it’s fascinating!
These are some of my favourite models of human behaviour:
