Re: What kind of forum member are you?

you sweettalker you

To be completely honest, over the past months I have had some in-depth talks on this subject at work. A new guy interpreted things quit different than I intended and created a completely wrong 'image' of me. It made me think
The essence was that it was not caused by what I said, but how. I tend to be quit forward, which not all people (seem to) appreciate.
In the end I guess it is allowing eachother some room to get to know eachother.
Participating in forum discussions is perhaps even harder. Even more so when trying to communicate in a different language. Some people easily read into typed words want they want to read without (at least trying to) understand the intention of the poster. And thus, I have had my encounters on the fora too

So perhaps I am not as WYSIWYG as I would like

In a real fight:
* If you make a bad decision, you die.
* If you don't decide anything, you die.
Aikido teaches you how to decide.
