I was born and raised in Australia. In keeping with statistics, at least one of my parents was born in a different country.
I am a business analyst. I have worked in a variety of industries, including state and federal government, telecommunications, logistics, and a few others. My tertiary education was a Bachelor of Information Systems. I also have current first aid and health and safety representative qualifications.
I love to learn new things, but I only enjoy learning the interesting stuff. I’m not too keen on furthering my formal education because that forces one to learn a bunch of boring bits as well. My preferred method is just to read a whole lot of stuff about a whole lot of topics and then forget most of the details. What remains in my head is mostly useless but often interesting.
About ten years ago, Ms Briggs and her daughter Ms Myers huddled together and whispered intensely; then they turned, pointed at me and proclaimed “ENFP!”.
Actually, I didn’t really have a conversation with two dead women. That was just a metaphor, simile, or aphorism (I never bothered to learn which was which except that it is definitely not an aphorism). It is true though that I was ENFP, though that may have changed in the intervening decade.
Lastly, the Hermann Brain Dominance Instrument, which in spite of its name turns out not to be a Nazi torture device, says that I am blue and yellow. When I was put under pressure, I blue myself right off the chart! It also said I am very critical. I certainly agree to that; one of my strengths is my ability to find fault in everything (one of my weaknesses is in how I react to the faults that I find!).
