The Executive Summary:
In my humble experience, i have came across people that i just feel
not right for such technical jobs, people would act and take their
fingers to the devices without logic and others who has more of a
approach to solving problems and thinking, some that will crank under
pressure and just loose it and others who will act rationally.
You know those techs that are easy to understand,
and communicate so effectively,
almost always seeing things your way ?
Those are the sycophants, Jungian type "E's".
You know those techs that always seem to
be talking over your head, and telling you things
don't work the way you think, always screaming caution ?
Those are your *real* techs, Jungian type "I".
Why can't most managers figure this out ?
