Thinking different from others [#permalink] New post 21 Oct 2004, 11:07
Am I being paranoid as the deadline for MIT nears?

I have described a situation where a friend of mine at work and I had an argument over a project that I was trying to implement. I failed and in the essay analyze thoroughly why it happened and what I learned.

Does it show that my leadership skills are limited?

Hi,

This does not necessarily show that your leadership skills are limited, it really depends on the quality of your analysis and how you present the lessons you learned. Even great leaders have times when they could have led better.

This topic as described doesn't say anything positive or negative about your leadership skills. However, if it's supposed to answer the question, "Please give an example when your thinking was different from others’ (up to 500 words)," I'm not sure it's doing the job. Obviously, I haven't read the essay, so it's hard to say.

I don' t mean to increase your paranoia, but ... "others" in the question is plural. I'm not sure an argument with a friend really answers the question.

Good luck!

My friend is a head of a team, so it was really an argument between me and his group, where my thinking was different from that of him and his group. The project that I was trying to push didn't get any support and I'm describing what I would have done differently now that I have more experience.

My question was whether I picked the right example, as there are far more projects where I succeeded. I thought this one was interesting to analyze and would show the fact that I can be friends with someone and disagree with them.

It's paranoia. The app is submitted, so there is no going back now. I can relax for a while ;)

Relax. Have a good weekend. Your response addressed my concern.
