I believe that people are basically good. People are
systems that are always trying to come into balance.
I gravitate toward people that help me create balance.
Leadership is important to me, I choose who I follow,
and avoid strict hierarchies which limit my decision-making
ability and creativity. I prefer to be my own boss
at the same time cooperating with others. People are
flexible and can change. It is the differences in
people that drive introspection, awareness, action
and often irritation. We need the comfort of similarity
as well. I am drawn to differences in cultures and
similarities in values. Reflection or being keeps
us healthy, giving meaning to our actions. I value
reflection in a world where doing is dominant and
too often without meaning.
