Johari thing

Happy Valentines Day to those of you who celebrate/languish over/otherwise acknowledge it.

HP sent my laptop back after we called and harangued them yesterday. They “replaced a gasket.” Any bets on whether they’ve actually fixed it? But it’s here now, and so I am dutifully re-loading it.

Ergo: the Johari thing that’s making the blog rounds: “A model for mapping personality awareness. By describing yourself from a fixed list of adjectives, then asking your friends and colleagues to describe you from the same list, a grid of overlap and difference can be built up.”

There aren’t enough adjectives, and they’re skewed positively, but the psychologist (and narcissist) in me is clamoring to participate. So, do you see me as I see me?

    Oh that laptop thing… don’t even go there, 2005 and 2006 have not been my computer years at all. I’m awaiting my laptop after the DVD burner has been replaced and I’m praying for a better few months.

    Hope your gasket hangs in there though… that sounded positively rude! :-0

  2. If you see you in short skirts with unreasonably long and shapely legs for someone of your height, then yes. I see you as you do. 😉

    Laptops have gaskets? What is this, some military/amphibious model?

    if anyone uses the words “gasket” and “computer” in the same sentance, GET YOUR COMPUTER AWAY FROM THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. That Johari thing didn’t have enough words. I was looking for “creative,” but no, it wasn’t there, so you got marked as “bold” instead (I’ve seen your Con-wear, for goodness sake — guess it fits, the word and the Con-wear — how confusing).

    I’m rather put out they left out words like “kinky” and “perverted” from that test. Well, not for YOU *lol* but I set up one for myself afterwards and pretty much all the people I’ve asked to do it have commented “What happens if we can’t find the words we’re looking for to describe you?” *snigger*

    Hehehe. Acknowledge it? Never! Perish the thought! 😀

    Hey, if they don’t have “creative”, that rules out my center adjective! No fair…
