Cedulously assiduous, I was reared to the beat of Rudyard Kipling's "If," of course, taking "man" and "son" in their neuter sense! I'm a teacher/multiculturalist linguist/event planner/writer/ translator/editor/project and production assistant/caterer/private eye/witty, urbane poetess, studying to be a notary /paralegal/ Webmistress and constantly aspiring to be worthy of the sobriquet,"walking encyclopedia." As we say in Appalachia,"Why, bless your heart, hit airn't a-braggin' iffen ye kin prove it." Let me show you.

Description of my perfect job:
My ideal job would be permanent and stable, offering advancement and salary commensurate with outstanding performance, but fastpaced and broad-spectrum, involve international contact, negotiation, persuasion, research, writing, and editing, a great deal of travel and the opportunity to expand and exercise my heuristic, complex-adaptive mind. I would like to be in charge of troubleshooting, setting up systems, maintaining efficiency and streamlining. I am an INTJ personality which means that I am good at rapid, alternative problem solving. As a rare female INTJ, I tend to be better than my male counterparts at working cooperatively and developing consensus. I combine the creativity and critical thinking skills of a liberal arts education with the practical knowledge of experience in a wide variety of situations and the pursuit of a technical degree. Additionally, I combine assiduity, coping and problem solving skills and maturity with creativity, sponteneity and a willingness and ability to learn, divine, and try new approaches. In addition to a high I. Q., I also possess an "outstanding" E. Q. In the interest of cutting the number of people on your payroll, an eclectic person might be more diversely proficuous. Interest and aptitude tests suggest I would be equally good at
Research, Investigation, Social Science, Psychology
