I started learning 25 years ago at the age of 18 about ALL the different personality types online,

thanks tongue emoticon I had my phase of taking discussions in forums with deadly seriousness… back in 1989/1990 Usenet and mailing lists.

Then I started creating/running large listserv mailing lists on various topics and discovered what’s required in managing thousands of people, some of whom get quite hot under the collar and trigger happy.

I started learning 25 years ago at the age of 18 about ALL the different personality types online, and how they interact with each other and how to manage people who are highly intelligent but occasionally get unreasonable and lose civility.

Most I could get to listen to reason. I *did* have to kick two out, encouraging them to start their OWN mailing list to conform to the standards they felt I wasn’t holding up to.

They did, became successful, started a social movement in the process. “Taking Children Seriously” founded by quantum computing pro David Deutsche and Sarah Fitzgerald is a parenting movement they started together, all because I got tired of their high-brow academic talk when one of my rules was, “speak plainly whenever possible”.

I was just a kid. But at 43 years old now and lots of practice, niceness online is just habit now smile emoticon
