Remote Work Round-Up
Nov. 16 2017
Have you ever taken a personality test? Whether it be Myers & Briggs, Riso-Hudson Enneagram Type Indicator, or any of the many free tests available on the internet, the results are supposed to determine how well rounded you are as a person, and help you communicate more effectively with "personalities" that are different from your own.
Inc. recently took a deeper look into the "Four Personality Types" in relation to remote workers, and they were shocked at the results.
"Because the four personality types assume everyone is working together at an office or manufacturing facility, they simply don't apply to a world where virtual reality threatens to make centralized offices themselves entirely obsolete."
Some of traits they DID find that applied to remote employees, included being self disciplined, introverted, not paranoid, a good salesperson, and technically competent.

Preparing for the Unexpected: How Maria Fava Found Her Confidence as a Bicultural, Bilingual Woman at T. Rowe Price
Born in Mexico City and raised in Guadalajara, Maria Fava never would have predicted that she'd have a career in financial services. And certainly not in Maryland.
Over two decades ago, when Maria moved to the U.S. to study psychology at the University of Texas at Arlington, she'd planned on moving back to Mexico to study law after graduation. Instead, she fell in love with an unassuming Italian-American her senior year. She married him and moved to Maryland, his home state.
When the pandemic began in spring and her friends (and fellow Carnegie Mellon master's students) started to find out that their offers for summer internships were canceled, Mai Sha held her breath.
