Memes Du Semaine

MISCELLANEOUS MEMES ON MY MIND…
* Yet-Another-Behavioral-Model: TETRAMAPS ! — my firm uses this often with clients… its much cooler than DISC and includes fun toys and props like Buckyballs. i love the fact that they compare it against other models, though the traditional 4 elements used in western astrology (props to BP) aren’t included in their comparison.. probably because it would be confusing. i ran the test this morning and apparently i measure 17-26-25-32, earth-air-water-fire respectively.
* Steering away from the architectural-communicative realm, another question that’s been bugging me lately is “can you teach intellectual curiosity?” i believe you can, not because curiosity is teachable per se, but because it’s an innate trait (advantageous from an evolutionary standpoint when combined with learning– “i wonder if what that berry tastes like,,,” **thud** “ok, that was poison, but i wonder what this one tastes like…” ) that can be unleashed and channeled… the fact that many people seem to be intellectually incurious is because the trait simply gets buried / conditioned out of their minds. (wdyt, nareg? too optimistic?)
* The Dow Jones Industrial Average : Recession-shmession, this is a target-rich environment.
* Literal Music Videos… well actually, most of them are boring, but this one rocks:
now i can’t get the refrain ” (Pipe wrench fight) ” out of my head….
..wait.. i have a cure…
