Just the thought of being “common” makes me cringe. A prime example of this is my preferred name, Curtis. My full name is Jon Curtis Miller and I prefer to be referred to by my middle name, Curtis. For as long as I can remember, when asked why I prefer to be addressed by my middle name instead of my first, my response has always been, “There are too many Jon’s in the world, and I’m not another Jon.” I’m unique, I know that and to a certain extent pride myself on being so. Even though I enjoy being unique, my weaknesses are very much a hindrance to my organizational behavior. First and foremost, I’m horrible with people and communication. In general, I lack interest in small talk, which leads to poor listening and ultimately the absence of interest in other people. As such, I come can across as uncaring and insensitive. Making matters worse, I don’t intentionally try to hurt people’s feelings, although my honest and straightforward approach can rub people the wrong way. Following the characteristics of my Type “A” personality, this often leads to self-induced social isolation. Lastly, I have a tendency to be impatient with those that can’t keep up or understand basic concepts and become frustrated waiting
