Words for Others

I promised to come up with words for the blog readers who contribute to my "one word" research. Thank you so much for making the effort to come up with a word, if you did. I find it quite challenging!

To ensure that people coming to the experiment for the first time don't see a list of words I came up with for others, I will post them as comments. Try not to read them until you come up with your word for me. It may take me a while to come up with your word, so, if you contribute and don't have a word yet, that means I am still thinking.

So far we have these kind contributors (and how I know them):

  • Beccano (son)
  • Belinda (DNO friend)
  • Connor (DNO friend)
  • "He Who Never Comments" (church friend)
  • Katy S (DNO friend)
  • Kris (DNO friend)
  • Lee (partner)
  • Marianne (DNO friend)
  • Patty (DNO friend)
  • Robin (DNO friend)
  • Sam (DNO friend)
  • Sandy (DNO friend)
  • Shelley (DNO friend)
  • Stephanie (DNO friend)
  • Teresa (DNO friend)
  • Tina (tarot/knitting friend)
  • Vicki (email list and DNO friend)

What's nice is that these are some of the folks who know me best in the whole world, so they have a lot to base their words on. Thank you all!

PS: DNO = Dysfunctional Nonprofit Organization

PPS: I did not write explanations for why I picked your words, so if you'd like one, just email me. I plan to write up the explanations later, when I am analyzing.

Competent? Is that like... mediocre? Just barely able to get her underwear on in the morning type competent? Like when you are pressured to be a reference for someone and when the potential new boss calls you say "well, she's competent" but try to imply in your voice that she's also a huge pain in the ass?

Hmm...

Of course I did describe you as perceptive so I have to take this competent thing seriously...
