All about me

So I was reading a very interesting article and I have to admit, I do qualify as a geek and I have been a proud one at that for AGES!

Very often, I have been told I can be persuasive and should consider sales though I have always balked at the idea- ugh, that’s so not my thing! However, I had a Eureka moment today when I came across an article that helps me understand why most geeks are so good at persuasion. And it all comes down to the simple ingredient- PASSION. Is everyone with a passion with a geek? Does this mean I can only ever be with a geek (becos lack of passion is VERY much a deal-breaker for me!)… well, theory says they are better in bed and I am beginning to see merit in that one, though that’s not for this forum now, is it? ;). Maybe companies should hire geeks for salespeople?

So my geeky side converged with wannabe-healthy side and I went to do an ayurvedic test and my results (copied below) are somewhat scary! Seriously, I could become close-minded to change and could blame others- that’s so not acceptable, even if it’s me!! Oh my, I better stay healthy- off for a run people!
