Skills and Strengths

My Neuro-exceptional talent

I have high empathy so tend to notice impacts others have not thought of yet. I seem to think further ahead than most. I am also quicker to consider an idea from different perspectives to ask hard questions and make the product more robust. For example, a new product on bias using MBTI to create an "unbiased" or "balanced" team. However, the MBTI result can vary due to mood, time of the day, time of the month etc that no one else had considered.

I struggle sitting by the door in the office as the open and closing is really distracting. I prefer a corner so there's no sound coming from two sides and can better focus on what is happening around me.
