Someone approached me over the weekend, after overhearing me tell a friend that I was quitting a job. She just butted into the conversation. My friend and I were still standing there. “Why?” she asked me, in a challenging tone. “Why are you quitting this? Tell me why.”
I looked at her, steadily to slow her down. I learned how to do this from an old man when I was a teenager. You can learn too – How To Control A Conversation.
“Well,” I said, pausing to consider what to say next. “I am quitting for this reason, x and y…”
“Okay,” she said. “Because it it is over Z, I’m going to A, B and C…”
She was going to break some heads on my behalf, basically.
“I am not a weak person,” I said to her, earnestly. My friend burst out laughing. “Seriously, I’m not sure what you think, but I am not a weak person in any way, shape or form. If I seem like someone who would be pushed around, this is the not case. I’m the one running my life. I do what I do, because I want to do it and for no other reason.”
She accepted this.
I’m guessing she’s a Cardinal type as well…
Are you a weak person? How do you see your strength or weakness in your chart?
