You Are An ENTP

The Visionary

You are charming, outgoing, friendly. You make a good first impression.

You possess good negotiating skills and can convince anyone of anything.

Happy to be the center of attention, you love to tell stories and show off.

You're very clever, but not disciplined enough to do well in structured environments.

You would make a great entrpreneur, marketing executive, or actor.

If I Want to LEARN

... The place I avoid is SCHOOL.


Because SCHOOL is about credentials. It's not about LEARNING.

If I want to learn, I ask a friend, I read a book, I visit the web, I go to the library, I ask questions of people who might know something. I try stuff out. I fail a few times. Ok, I fail a lot of times. Eventually I figure it out and move on. I've learned something.

If I go to SCHOOL I have to apply. I have to be approved. I have to get permission. I have to wait until the course is offered again. I have to be graded. I have to play the transcript game. I get a credential. I may not have learned a damn thing, but I've gotten the credential. By the time I get to even begin with SCHOOL, whatever I wanted to learn is moot.

WTF is wrong with this picture???

How do we fix it?

[Note: I posted this over on the School 2.0 group in Ning. Got no traction there. Maybe it'll get a little more interest outside of the walls.]

Proof that I probably have too much time on my hands.

Quarter Share

Well, it's a modest beginning, but it's a start.

I've always wanted to write a science fiction novel.

The audio version for was a lot of fun and the search begins for a paper publisher. I'm not too optimistic but nothing ventured nothing gained.

The title has it's own website at
