Information In, Meaning Ascribed

How do you receive, perceive and process information? If you’re following along, I’m working on a series of posts where I explore commonalities and themes in the various personality and strengths tests I’ve taken over the years. In this installment, I return to the MBTI. Eventually, I’ll connect all the dots in a summary, wholistic […]

The Enterprising Artistic Adventurer

Somehow I managed to hold onto an old computer printout of the results from a college orientation vocational interests assessment, the Strong-Campbell Interest Inventory. I ran across it recently in a folder where I’d stored all my old test scores, transcripts and similar documentation as I embarked on this exercise to compare the results of […]

What’s Your Moral Personality?

We all have a smorgasbord of personality traits, a preferred style or preference for decision-making, and a values system that governs (or at least shapes) our choices. As I continue my series that looks at the common thread between the results of various interests, style and personality tests (validated and otherwise) that I’ve taken over […]

Introvert or Extrovert?

Are you an introvert or extrovert? Do you often think that the introvert is shy and socially awkward?  I suspect that many people classify introverts that way. In reality, the difference between an introvert and an extrovert stems from where the person gets his or her energy. I’m one of those folks who enjoy messing […]

From Sorority Webmaster to Blogger

Between the years of 2000 and 2002, I launched what today’s marketers would call a brand journalism initiative to tell the story of the Alpha Gamma Chapter of Delta Zeta via the “world wide web.” Websites in those days were mostly static brochures, consisting of a few pages, maybe 5 at most. But I envisioned […]

Client Confidentiality & The Era of Personal Branding

I began my professional life as a business lawyer. I am honored and proud to be a lawyer and proud of the work I did as a lawyer during the 12 or so years that I practiced. I love thinking through legal problems and solving legal puzzles. That said, I don’t like to sit behind […]

Who Is Telling Your Story?

I’ve never been one to “toot my own horn,” as the saying goes. For most of my life I believed that my work would speak for itself and that self-promotion is, to be quite frank about it, a bit gauche. But the reality is that hard work, effort, ethical behavior and successful results are not […]

Sports Consumption: Say No to the Passive Life

As I made the daily walk around my neighborhood the past two weekends I noticed lots of folks were playing host to football game TV watching parties. Alabama and Auburn have had big games and, as the saying goes, Saturday down South is all about football. And, to be quite honest, tailgating before a game […]

Hashimoto’s Diagnosis

Here’s something I’ve never said publicly. And I’d never intended to talk about it publicly, but I keep seeing so many others dealing with similar problems that I feel like I can offer something new to this conversation. Nine year ago I was diagnosed with a thyroid problem. It was several months after I’d finished […]
