A Man's View of Women

I am an electrical engineer by training and like to think of myself as well versed in how people in general act and work together. Recently, as a male I have observed something about women that I have never been able to completely explain, but always wanted to write about. This is not a sexist thing, just some observations as to why as men we are perplexed and ever so curious about women.

Women have no respect for logic; they can openly disagree with themselves and still be right; they can carry on complex relationships with us, with or without our participation; there is nothing in the world more fragile than an unbreakable woman, or more inflexible than a woman who does not know what she really wants; they are born able to read minds and will always find our inability to do so as a member of the opposite sex a disappointment; women will dream, wax and wane indeterminately about the absolute perfect male companion, boyfriend or husband and almost without fail choose the absolutely wrong guy initially and then ask “what went wrong?” when it does not work out; they will also see a mistake they make as a learning experience and can easily explain away any foible or as a woman’s prerogative; and finally, women are a contradiction in terms. This is a statement that does not make sense, no matter how hard we try to figure it out, and it is also one that goes a long way in explaining why women are all so glorious, mysterious, wondrous, and beautiful and why we cannot stop (why we should not ever want to stop) falling in love with them, even at our peril.

To any women out there that are offended, I am sorry, I mean no disrespect and actually like women in general and in a very few and rare cases, loved personally as well.

Myers-Briggs and Social Media

If you have been working for any amount of time, you have most likely have taken the Myer-Briggs personality indicators (introvert v. extrovert; sensing v. intuition; thinking v feeling; and perceiving v. judging).  Here is an infographic created my mbti that has been broken into five sections.  It is pretty informative and goes on to show what types of indicators prefer which types of social media.

Lupercalia and St. Valentine's Day

OK, I just could not resist this: Romance, sex, orgies, wolves, and martyrdom all under one legend. Oh my, what a day we have!!! We might celebrate romance and sweethearts on this day, but boy, the Romans really knew how to party. While history is fun, it is also interesting to know how some things never change (like falling in love and celebrating it!). Happy St. Valentine’s and Lupercalia. May you celebrate it at your heart’s content with someone who has stolen or whom you have given your heart away!  Lupercalia is uniquely Roman. It harkens back to the days when Rome was nothing more than a few shepherds living on a hill known as Palantine and was surrounded by wilderness teeming with wolves. The name comes from lupus, or the latin form of wolf, that celebrates the founding of Rome by Romulus and Remus (as they were suckled by a she-wolf). 
Another thought is that Lupercus, protector of flocks against wolves, is a likely candidate for the name. In any case, there is no question abou…

Men v. Boys

I have been reading a lot of articles of late about relationships and seeing some that put men into groups without understanding that men are NOT all alike.  By lumping all men together, the concept of being a gentleman does not come into play. Women, and people in general, have to realize that there are men of character, culture and grace, and then there are boys.  Boys are men who have chosen not to grow up and become wise in the ways of civility, charm, and substance. This post highlights the differences between men and boys.  Ladies, which are you dating? Men, whom are you?
