Ärende: Second Thoughts...  3C.
===============================
Hi yet again, James!  This is the last installment of the current series:

JB>  Even though I'm associating the letter designations
JB>  alright, I still doubt I could pick one out in a crowd.


           With practice, I'm sure you will!  Most people are more complex than
those in the examples I've used here.  They may behave differently in different
areas of their life too.  When I wrote the test in the book to determine my own
reasoning style, for example, I found certain questions difficult to answer.  I
thought "Are they expecting me to answer as a teacher... as co-moderator of the
SURVIVOR echo... as a wife & mother?"  My priorities might be different in each
case.  But now & again I also notice something which is a dead giveaway.  I was
walking past the neighbourhood pub recently when I happened to overhear a brief
snatch of conversation from somebody on the patio.  Every other word was an "f"
word.  To me, those few sentences spoke volumes about his reasoning style.  ;-)



JB>  I have a twelve hour day ahead of me today, and two
JB>  appointments tomorrow, so I'll have to keep this brief.
JB>  (I won't mention the yard cleaning yesterday. Opps!  |-)


           A lot like being a housewife, I guess!  A friend of ours used to say
of his wife "She'd LOVE to... but she WORKS."  I challenge anybody who thinks I
don't work to follow me around for a day.  I just don't get paid in money.  :-)



JB>  "Timed outlets"?

JB>  I would suspect erratic power supply, or operator error.
JB>  Those *never* happen here. O-8*


           Ah, well... like us, you probably live in more modest digs!  I'd run
across the same problem in another household where I was babysitting years ago.
The family had an electric bottle warmer.  When I plugged it in it didn't work,
so I resorted to the old-fashioned method of heating water in a saucepan on the
stove & using it to warm the bottle.  The parents told me later that the outlet
at the back of the stove... i.e. the one I'd tried to use... was set to come on
only in the early morning when they used it to make coffee.  Although I've seen
some stoves which will allow the oven to be turned on or off automatically at a
preset time I've yet to see another like that.  I may be behind the times.  But
I've never owned a new stove... and one like theirs would be beyond our budget.

           In the incident I was thinking of above Dallas was having difficulty
with the installation of a computer at the upscale condo where a friend of ours
had been living for fifteen years.  In upscale condos, apparently, people don't
use timers purchased from the local hardware store which plug into the outlet &
can therefore be detected fairly easily.  They have something discreetly hidden
away like the timer on the stove outlet.  Our friend wanted to use a particular
outlet near his desk.  But because he'd never used it before, he didn't realize
this outlet was on a timer as well.  I guess the previous occupants had used it
to switch a lamp on & off when they were away... but they hadn't told him.  Oh,
and when we moved in here we found one outlet which didn't work at all....  :-)

                                   ***

           I'm glad you wrote "suspect" there, BTW, rather than "assume".  When
one is trouble-shooting, suspicions... i.e. tentative beliefs, as my dictionary
describes them, or working hypotheses... are a logical starting point.  One may
need to eliminate the obvious first, as I did in LA when I asked "Can s/he see?
Can s/he hear?  Can s/he speak English?"  There's not much point in looking for
learning disabilities until these factors have been dealt with.  It's important
to consider all possibilities, including the possibility that I opened the door
of the dryer & forgot to turn the machine on again... but I could have told the
repairman the same thing happened six times in one week if he'd thought to ask!
When people assume they often take things for granted & fail to check them out.

           Years ago Dallas & I met a guy with both type I diabetes & epilepsy.
It took his mother twenty years to find a doctor who paid attention to what she
was saying when she told them "No, it's *not* an insulin reaction or a diabetic
coma... there's something different about it."  Once this doctor had added some
appropriate medications, the problem was solved.  Blue-collar workers are by no
means the only ones who say to themselves (in effect) "Ho hum... another stupid
female!" or "Ho hum... another neurotic, overprotective mother!"  Females do it
to other females as well.  But it seems to me that people who really know their
onions generally find it easier to acknowledge what other people know....  :-))
