Back to JD Meyer’s writings

I wrote last month about Getting result the agile way (the book).
JD Meyer has another web site where I found this article about Success 2.0.
One of the lessons in success (number 9) is Know yourself. This brought me in a roundabout way to an older article about You 2.0.
If you read the You 2.0 booklet, you’ll find under the self-awareness title the following (I found it very useful, so I decided to paste it in here)

  • Self-Awareness
    Learning Styles -Abstract, Concrete, Random, Sequential (Four Stages of Competence, US Gordon Training International organization )
  • 5 Thinking Styles –Synthesist, Idealist, Pragmatic Thinker, Analyst Thinker, Realist Thinker (Richard Bramson, Coping with Difficult Bosses).

    I wonder how the know-it-all is different from the think-they-know-it-all…
