Survey results

Now let’s discover some of the results of the survey…
First let’s examine the survey and the answers that were provided by a group of people (whose participation was really appreciated) of different backgrounds and as a reminder the situation that the survey mentioned is when a person is having a very important business meeting that your future depends on it and here r the questions.

The first point is to cover the preparation that u would make before the meeting. The collected data shows that choice A is the most preferable choice. The reason for that in my opinion is most people would choose to focus on the subject in hand to be sure that they’ve got all the points of the subject covered and that would increase their sense of security (one Bird in hand is better than ten on the tree) and frankly this choice works most of the times.
Choice B on the other hand was only chosen by the minority I think the reason for that is it require more work than choice A and it gives less feeling of security.
I guess choice C is the worst choice to be taken here (I won’t go as far as saying it is a choice for losers) because the situation is said to be very serious and for a person to go with only minor preparations I don’t that is clever at all.

The second point is to check the person’s behavior when the preparation is over and u still have some spare time.
The majority has selected choice B to do a second check for the preparation to ensure not missing anything and that might be the smarter choice. Choice A on the other hand is to relax and preserve your energy and may be have some sleep and that might be useful most of the time if u r confident in the preparation u’ve made. Choice C which is to worry about what can go wrong is absolutely useless but the sad thing is that there r many people (not among our participants) that got actually caught with their fears.

The third point is how to dress for the occasion.
70% of the participants have selected to wear something neither too fancy nor informal for the occasion while 30% have chosen to wear something really fancy.

The Fourth point is how to act exactly before the meetings.
60% of the participants have chosen to think positively that the meeting will go smoothly and it is just a peace of cake, while 30% have chosen not put their hopes high in order to make it easier in case they fail and 10% chose not to think about the whole thing.

The Fifth point is about the state inside the meetings room.
60% of the participants have chosen to overlook the fault in the chair that they’re using while 40% decided that it is important to be on the same level of height as the other people in the meeting so they’ll substitute the chair with another one.

The sixth point is about the behavior when confronted with a weak point in your proposal.
80% of the participants have chosen to be honest and admit that there is a flaw in the proposal but yet its strong points r much more than its weak points while 20% have chosen to act confident and escape the immediate confrontation and then to make a strong comeback.

The seventh point is about the case of failure.
90% of the participants have chosen to research the reasons of your failure and to try to be better next time while 10% have chosen that there is nothing wrong with the proposal and there must be something wrong with the people who rejected it.

These where the opinions of different people from different backgrounds and I repeat the survey is not about judging those people and their choices. The survey is about helping me in my next post where u’ll discover what the fuss is all about. I’m sorry for making anyone wait this long and I hope that it will worth your while…

Our Eyes Dream Acid Tears

One land, one people, all asleep
one dream in every mind
all see words of scripture, captive
in a vise of hatred, crushed
distorted words of God, acid
tears, with screaming lips, the captor
feels the kiss of Satan
on his heart.
