Post your FIRST POST here to introduce yourself, and afterwards to welcome new members.
Strictly NO MUSIC LINKS, OR LYRICS. The "Introduce Yourself" board is about YOU. Don't worry... you can let us hear works in progress on the critique boards, and finished work in the Musician's Lounge and the Showcase Board.
We seem to have an inordinant number of newbees posting their own work for review, but not reviewing anyone else's.
While that doesn't violate any Songstuff rules, it does fly in face of common sense.
Give & take is the lifesblood of online critique. Without it, forums wither & die.
Remember...as good as your work may be, people need a reason to be interested in it.
If you haven't provided them with one, you do not have the right to expect much in return.
As you were!

You have obviously worked hard on the song and video. The only thing I might comment on if I had to would be the vocal sounds a little quiet to me, but it might be my headphones.
It is a very current theme and thought provoking.
Well done on creating this song!
yes I found Jung's association when I checked out the 1st alternative I posted.
That must reveal something about my personality. Half a$$ed research, disregarding Carl J, and impatient when it didn't turn out the way I think it should. In my experience this indicates leadership traits.
Oddly enough my workmate Danny explained to me today that his wife (who is a psychologist) uses pictures, simplified words and minimal structure to help those with learning difficulties. He compared it to making a presentation to managers. Its right! Bullet points, pictures (of cartoon simplicity), and keeping it short.
In this case I find the subject interesting and my interest would line up with my type. I think if anything it seems to confirm intuition. We can adapt to an opposite outcome from our types, but I don't think we would be comfortable being in that state for long since it really isn't us.
I was interviewed for a management position and they asked my how I would deal with a worker who was drinking, late for work or lazy. I found I'm lenient up to a breaking point and then I deal with it. I try to be the friendly supervisor first, but if I sense I'm being played shame on you. Admittedly people will try to play a person who they perceive as easy. I WANT to make friends first, but the job comes first in that case. I think they wanted a tougher approach, they weren't looking for a friendly boss. I have a job that both manages data and people right now...I guess I'm more of a passive aggressive in the workforce. In the end my style can be just as bad as the tough boss, or it can be good depending. I try to put myself in the persons shoes.
I guess these tests are primarily given by employers to determine a management style. I don't really know. I think it can be helpful to know these things. Most of us will know if the determination looks to be accurate about us because we know ourselves. It can be tough to look in the mirror though and admit it.
Doesn't really matter because others already see it anyways.
I liked your comments about adapting. It's uncomfortable but fully possible to exist outside of our preferred strength. I HATE social situations, but I'm told I adapt to it well and even look comfortable in it...yet nothing could be further from the truth.
