Similarly, certain tests that are non-analytical but rhetorical and based on scientific classifications of personality may favor those who:

1. Grew up without much restrictions and structure to their lives perhaps because their family owned a home or a car and they had free reign and places to play and explore.

2. Were not tied to budgets so their play toys included plenty of puzzles, lego blocks, books and other toys to stimulate the mind and encourage free thought and imagination.

3. Went to a school that offered Montessori education or explored different curriculum so they could tailor learning to the individual ways that children learn.

4. Were surrounded by entrepreneurs, professionals and other examples of great success growing up among members of their family and community thus the concept of making it on a whim, a wing and a prayer was not lost on them and they got it and understood.

5. Attended functions and events with family where conversations around them circled and focused on culture, the arts, current events, and other worldly topics so they were exposed to great and bright ideas regularly from the beginning.

6. Were never raised to fear authority or

a. to fear “no” or

b. to fear rejection

c. to fear success

d. to fear failure.

7. Were never shut down for having a thought or idea or never told to shut up and keep quiet when they had something to contribute

8. Were free to explore and do what they wanted, and money was made available if they wanted to join the Peace Corp or go backpacking in Europe for a year first.

9. Didn’t have parents who told them they cannot and should not sing if they wanted or wander if they wanted.

10. They were free range in thought and physical space.

For these reasons, children who grew up in a family culture that mirrored the culture of innovation, free and exploratory thought are more likely to do well in the psycho tests and hypotheticals corporations and Startup hiring managers impose on potential hires.

Imitation is the highest form of pissing me off. Quit stealing my content and violating my copyright. ~Jen T. Verbumessor

I am SUPER sick of people stealing my blog content, taking my blog post titles, using my image style etc. Don't go on my blog and copy my text for your blog. It is not flattery or borrowing. It's my intellectual property.

I spend a lot of time helping other people learn social media and how to do things online. My goal is to give you the skills to do these things yourself, not cut and paste my things.

You have been warned, I will be calling you out on it. STOP IT.

Introduction

The word according to the Book of JJ

In the year....

1992 - Took a  college job creating content for one of the earliest websites in history while working at the University of Maryland Office of Technology.

1994 – Got ambitious and applied for a coveted intern slot at U.S. News & World Report and was the only non-Ivy-league student awarded a plum spot. It was there I realized I didn’t want to become a journalist after all. Maybe my dad was right. I argue a lot. Law is my field.

1995 - Enrolled in law school at the Catholic University, destined to be a top telecom lawyer.

1998 –Scored a gig teaching advocacy to Georgetown University Law Students after graduating from law school. Was great. I got to be a big fish in a small pond.

2000 – Saw the ocean across the way and left the small pond and headed to a big sea and became an Associate at an international law firm. I was the only black lawyer in our DC office.

2002- Dubbed my professor years, guest spoke at Yale Law, taught media Law at my alma matter U of MD and lectured at Penn State.

2004 -Convinced 6 of my college girlfriends to start our own blog where we’d talk about our passions: handbags, shoes and politics.  We were going to blow up, I told them. Gig on the Side was its name

2005- Jilted by the failure to become a super blogger, I became Asst General Counsel and at one time was the only communications regulator for the District of Columbia. I negotiated franchise agreements on behalf of then Mayor Anthony Williams and lobbied future Mayor Adrian Fenty.

2005- Struck it on my own, formed a law firm and PR firm. I repped national communications companies and nonprofits

2007 – Started plotting world online domination. Dubbed myself a social butterfly and commenced to joining , moderating, leading, writing, antagonizing, stoking and agitating my way through various blogs.

2010- Went to the White House and was 1 of 22 bloggers at the first African American Online Summit

2011- Served as amici counsel before US Supreme Court on behalf of a coalition of national organizations including Public Knowledge, Media Access Project The NAACP, RainbowPUSH, NOW, The Urban League and others.
