In the field of psychology, the Dunning-Kruger effect is a cognitive bias, wherein persons of low ability suffer from illusory superiority when they mistakenly assess their cognitive ability as greater than it is. The cognitive bias of illusory superiority derives from the metacognitive inability of low-ability persons to recognize their own ineptitude.

Child abuse. Rape. Sexual assault. Brutal physical attack. Being in a war and witnessing violence, bloodshed, and death from close quarters. Near death experiences. These are extremely traumatic events, and some victims bear the scars for life. The physical scars heal, but some emotional wounds stop the lives of these people dead in their tracks.

I actually found this video amazing because my dad lately has been experiencing a loss of memory. He actually called me his sister and that really concerned me because it felt like it was the early signs of dementia or alzheimer’s. He comes in an out these days but seems to be doing a little better.
I always say that knowledge is power and understanding what is actually happening makes you feel less helpless in situations.
The song at the end made me cry. Made me think of what my dad said…only when you experience something do you know what it feels like and I agree with him very much…

We have all had toxic people dust us with their poison. Sometimes it’s more like a drenching. Difficult people are drawn to the reasonable ones and all of us have likely had (or have) at least one person in our lives who have us bending around ourselves like barbed wire in endless attempts to please them – only to never really get there.

Many people question whether school is for them or not and for some they are right, school is not for them.
I wanted to share my experience.
Both of my parents never graduated from college and for them it was very important for my sister and I to get a great education. I remember how my mom used to drive us to school to ensure we went and how i hated the brown beat up car she drove us in. We didn’t have a lot of money but since my mom was a housewife, she gave us so much attention and took really good care of us.
I don’t remember my childhood very well but I do remember being in high school and taking an FBLA class (Future Business Leaders of America) and how this class shaped my interest in Marketing. I went to Newtown High School in Queens NY and was part of the business institute. Being part of the business institute definitely helped me decided to focus on business yet I had this real passion for Psychology. My last year of High School I was allowed to take a College Now course to advance my credits for college. I took Psychology 101. Psychology was amazing!!! The only problem was that I was afraid of it. I already had my own teenage issues and studying Psychology just made me think more. I studied Freud, Jung, Pavlov and they all had theories. I spent days and nights studying with a passion I can’t explain with words. I just loved it. I got an award for that class.
So I graduated and now what? College? Ugh what do I want to study? I was so confused. I mean I knew I wanted to study Psychology because I studied the mind without being asked to. I would just study self help/ self development books as a hobby.
My older sister went for fashion as a major and since I was confused, I took the easy route and chose fashion too. Boy was I wrong. I hated fashion. I thought because I liked shopping I would love fashion. BORING!!! I was sitting in a textiles class and all i could think was how different this was to studying the mind. I wanted something more meaningful something more me. I was a C student.
I took a group dynamics class and was the leader of a group presentation. I chose the topic about personality and careers because I was going through this issue at the time of not knowing what i wanted. I remember crying to my dad frustrated because I had already paid for the classes and was doing so bad. I felt frustrated. Through my frustration I learned a lesson. I learned to listen to who I was instead of ignoring who I was. For my project I took out a few books from the library like Myer Briggs Type Indicator or Personality Test which talked about Introvert and Extrovert personalities.
I took a personality assessment test http://psychologytoday.tests.psychtests.com/take_test.php?idRegTest=3242 and it helped me ask myself what i liked. I’m not sure if this was the exact one I took but it was similar. I narrowed down that I loved Psychology and loved business. I started thinking and since Marketing was around consumer behavior and knew i took a class in High School I really liked I decided to go for it.
When i changed my major to Marketing it was like night and day. I was a straight A student. I just loved each class. It was amazing to see the difference.
After I graduated and got my BBA (Bachelors of Business Administration) I worked for a few years and decided (with the help of my mom reminding me that I wanted this) that I needed to learn more about business so instead of just focusing on Marketing I focused on all of business. I got my MBA (Masters of Business Administration) which was super hard but worth it.
After getting my Masters, I felt more confident in the workplace because I felt that I acquired the education and skills I needed to get to the next level of my career.
Getting your MBA isn’t everything but I am happy that I was able to get it because I can rely on my own skills. My education was an investment on myself and it was the best gift I could have ever given me.
I think that my purpose was always more about the mind but I needed all the education, skills and experience to bring it all together.
