Profile Me.

JoJo over at JoJos's So-Called Life recently posted about an activity she had taken part in at work to help to get to know each other better. Each person had to create a profile which included three sections. The following is taken from JoJo's page.

The three sections though need to be explained so that you understand why they are included.


Good things about me-this is a section where you personally think of good things about yourself, maybe things that people say about you all the time like "wow you have amazing eyes/teeth/hair" or "you are extremely confident/happy/out-going", then the group you're working with write down three more appropriate ones to add to your list (working with a group of boys on mine created some uber inappropriate ones such as "bang tidy" but it could have been worse!).

What is important to me- this could be at work or in life, in general. It could be little things like having a bath before you go to bed or going to the gym (this one was not mine btw!)

How best to support me-this is an important part of the profile because it's suppose to help people understand what your needs are especially if they have to work with you.
 JoJo asked if anyone else would like to have a go. I thought, why not!

How Best to Support Me:
  • (taken slightly from JoJos list but it really fits with me) Never judge me. (I've realised certain people in my life, still after 8 years, have a certain perception of me and it hurts. Especially when you think these people love you and know you better)
