My problem with these tests? They skew to the positive and this reinforces people's belief in them being accurate - after all, who's going to argue with a test that tells you positive things about yourself? This also makes it open to confirmation bias.

Repeatability is another big problem - according to Myer Briggs your personality shouldn't change test to test - but studies show up to 50% of people testing showing a different result when retaking the test within 5 weeks!

Still, as a bit of fun I suppose there's no harm in them. I only have a problem with them when they start impacting inn the real world, like if they - or other personality tests - are used as a tool in, for example, recruitment selections.

Hey guys, me and my family are safe and sound from the explosion in Taipei. It was a waterpark concert where colour powder was thrown about when the main stage had fireworks going.

A cousin of my good friend was burned. She says it's non-life-threatening, and he's recovering now. If you have time to spare, please send prayers or good vibes in that direction, as well as the other 500 people that have suffered injuries. x

I hope you had a good evening.

My day is relatively laid back for once and I ended up reading about the Charleston shooting. I read both US and UK news sources, and read commentaries too. And I cried tears of sadness for the people I've never known and now never will have the chance to.

When do you realise the world doesn't want to be saved? And, do you still keep on trying afterwards?

Rhetorical. Or maybe not.

ETA: also, what happens to the lime wedge in the corona bottle after the drink is over?

That must be some sort of paleo bookshop.  They don't even have Linotype!  For health reasons, I presume?

Workshop today.

Technology Driven Innovation.

Yay interpreting!

No that girl in the photo is not me, that's the assistant facilitator of this workshop, and a former student of the speaker. Who's a very nice person and specifically pulled me aside to tell me I did a good job! Yay!

This 'report' is what's currently wrong with humanity.

This was NOT a gay pride event. This was a 'colour party' like the colour runs in several major cities across the world. The inspiration all came from the Holi festival from Hindu. Are you, +Mike Adams​​ going to claim all participants ever of the Holi events over all the years are LGBT people too? (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holi)

Even if it WERE a gay pride event. Seriously, there are people down in the comments REJOICING over the hurt, injury, heartaches and death of TEENAGERS and STUDENTS not to mention their families. Burnt Alive like GOD intended. REALLY?

I demand an open apology. As a reporter or journalist your job is record the truth, not find some far fetched connection and make up stories.

You are a disgrace and the way you let your readership CELEBRATE human suffering is against everything and anything every single religion ever tried to teach humankind.

+Annie Y. ugh, that's even worse - if they're moderating comments and allowing the vile ones to stand... ugh :/ and yes, totally what you said - lack of fact checking and lack of compassion, and encouraging people to rejoice in the suffering of others -  horrible, horrible, horrible.

Saturday snacking progression: right, plain Greek yoghurt with wild honey and non-sweetened muesli, left, corona with apple juice and lime.

Ugh, 12 more hours to work a deadline. I should be fine with this little buzz...

why yes, I repurposed the greek yoghurt container...

Woke up in the middle of the night from deep sleep. This was on the radio. And I thought, hey, that's (almost) me.

Cue crazy messaging people I wanted to share with.

And drop back to sleep.

Sleep texting is almost like drunk texting.

    Translator/ Interpreter, present
Story
Tagline
Claws optional, try at your own peril. Nags, rants, growls and meows.
Introduction
Warning: Bilingual. I speak irony and sarcasm fluently.

1/3 Chinese Taiwanese, 1/3 German, 1/3 English
Figuratively. Not literally.

Pessimistic/Optimistic
Loves to Laugh/Loves to Cry
Childish/Mature

Translator, interpreter, blogger, writer of some sort, critic of all things in my own right, and definitely a nag (but not a photographer, just some chick with a camera, and a snappy phone)

Points of note:
- I will have typos, and later correct them (most of the time)
- I will post what I like, and re-share what strikes my chords.
- I will rant, aimlessly. And I will derail my threads.
- I will be nice to you, as long as you are nice to me and my friends.
- I will block you if you can't treat my threads with the respect they deserve.
- And I hope you will enjoy that, because anything less would not be me.

Please rememberI'm inviting you to my living room for a chat, not running a public toilet for you to take a piss.
