A personality trait measured by certain psychological tests that shows the level of importance or intensity of focus an individual places on people. It is usually compared to the individual's measure of TaskOriented focus. One can be High-Task and High-People; High-Task and Low-People; Low-Task and High-People; or Low-Task and Low-People.
Many of the LiberalMind?'ed I know, seem to be PeopleOriented. That does not mean that all Liberals are PeopleOriented, but I bet the majority are. -- BrucePenningtonThis is an oversimplification in my observation. I see little if any correlation. I see more of a correlation between religious beliefs and political views.EditHint: Move to TheAdjunct
LOL! Yes, Dave, and so the debate goes on. What would happen to SoftwareDevelopment without People? How can you analyze the most efficeint People functions without delving into People? How can you seriously care about office function without caring about People? ProgrammingMatters only because People matter. You can discuss issues on the surface, and sometimes that is all you need; like putting an antibiotic on a skin infection. But sometimes treating the symptom isn't enough to cure the problem. Sometimes one must go deeper and get at the source.
"dubious relation to software development" - What do you think of:
CategoryLifeStrategies - You'll find a number of Wiki pages aimed at life skills. How do you determine which life skills are applicable to "software development" and which are not?
-- BrucePenningtonI see your point. Personally, I'd be inclined to pitch the lot, but I can appreciate that there's a fuzzy line here between OffTopic and OnTopic that ultimately comes down to personal preference. Eventually, WikiNature will sort it out. -- DaveVoorhis
Yes! Survival of the fittest, and all that. :) Thanks, Dave. -- BrucePennington
