Some evil people just will not change for the better

There is this fable that prove some people just will not change....

A scorpion wanted to cross the river so he asked the frog to carry him across on his back. The frog protested “Oh no I cannot do that because you will sting me and I will die”. “You will not die” answered the scorpion because if I sting you and you die then I will drown. Convinced by the scorpions logic, the frog relented and agreed to carry the scorpion across the river on his back, but as the frog swam to midstream the scorpion stung him.“Why did you do that?” said the frog “Now we will both die”. “Because I am a scorpion. It’s my nature.” answered the scorpion.
The scorpion showing his good nature to the frog, persuading him to believe he can change.

The frog made his fatal mistake of believing the scorpion will change and let the scorpion climb on his back.

I have to say I learnt from my own mistakes about trusting the scorpion. I am just too naive to believe no matter how evil a person, there are good sides of them. But then , scorpions are scorpions. They cannnot change their nature, despite how much they try. I maybe angry that I have been giving too many chances for the scorpions, but I have to accept this fact now. And take this as a great lesson in life.
And I have spent 5 years believing the scorpion. And now I have to get out because if not, I will die together with the scorpion. I cannot let him sting me anymore. I have asked him again and again not to sting me, but again and again , he repeated.
It is not too late to change my course. My decision is final. And I will be able to do this successfully and not regret this. I just hope the scorpion will not go around again and trick other frogs.

TEAM - Are you a hare, owl, turtle or squirrel?

I just picked up The One Minute Millionaire by Mark Victor Hansen and Robert G. Allen and found it to be very enlightening.

I like the "Multiple Streams of Income" and "Together Everyone Accomplishes Miracles - TEAM" concept.

For team concept, to create wealth - one must first build a diverse team as success is not a solo project. The diverse team consisted of four different categories of workers, known as the Hares, the Owls, the Tortoise, and the Squirrels. Each one has own strengths to leverage on to make the team successful.

Hare - Creative Types, but bad at follow-through.
Owls - Planners and go-getters.
Turtles - Cautious Types who point out issues.
Squirrels - Details oriented person who get the job done.

The one-minute millionaire site offer a survey to determine which type of worker you are. I found out to be a Hare, which I had guessed right. Here is the link to take the survey:

21 Irrefutable Laws of Relationship With Your Spouse. Rule No. 4: Law of Bullying Each Other

All of us are definitely no saints, so I guess, there are times we want to be a little bit cruel and act like a spoiled King or Queen.

I supposed most of us cannot behave like King or Queen in the workplace. If not, we risk being fired by our bosses or receive complaints from our colleagues. So, the best person where we can vent our frustration and madness are usually at our other half. Poor thing. Who say love has to be beautiful all the time?

Anyway, as long as we have fun bullying each other, it will be something exciting that we share in the relationship. Caution is - it has to be two-ways. When it is only one-sided, the relationship will stand a chance of being miserable, at least for the person who always get bullied. It also means, if you always get bullied, try to pick up the game and retaliate.

Do note that physical harm or aggressive behaviors are strictly not what I am talking about here. If your partner ever lay a hand on you so much as to cause you pain or small bruises, dum…

Myers-Briggs Personality Test

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator which based the test on 16 personality types is popular among big corporation like Coco-Cola. While the cost to take the test is very high, there are several advantages of knowing what type of employees or colleagues you have. Once we know, it is easier to understand others differences in personality , work-styles and learn to deal with the different personalities. Ultimately, the team can work better together.The 16 personality types are derived from the eight basic personality preferences, mainly:Extroversion vs. Introversion
Where do I get my energy? From the external world or people (extroverts), or from data, ideas, or things (introverts).

Sensing vs. Intuitive
How do I perceive information? Sensing types relate to information from their senses (visual, tactile, auditory, etc.) Intuitive types look at the “big” picture – global, spiritual, the possible, the infinite...
