About Ray


Where I am coming from:

According to the Myers-Briggs personality types, I am an INTJ. I originally took the test during my bachelors degree program between 2001-2003, but every test I have taken over the years comes back INTJ.
From Wikipedia:
INTJ (introversion, intuition, thinking, judgment):

INTJs are one of the rarest of the sixteen personality types, and account for approximately 1-2% of the population.
From the fine folks at myersbriggs.org:
"INTJ:

Have original minds and great drive for implementing their ideas and achieving their goals. Quickly see patterns in external events and develop long-range explanatory perspectives. When committed, organize a job and carry it through. Skeptical and independent, have high standards of competence and performance - for themselves and others."
I found a few articles that kind of put it together with a nice neat bow.
Truity offers a visual chart which can give you a fast overview.

12 Type Secrets of the INTJ Personality is a good source of quick points.

INTJ The Mastermind. This one has a video that explains things nicely.

The Youtopiaproject offers the fastest test I have ever taken, it is free. In fact, when you go to the link, the very first thing is a pop up that asks you to take the test. The link is safe, but you can just say "later," and it will go away - until you go to another page on the site, where it will pop up again. On this site, INTJ is called a "Spider."

INTJ Personality Type. This page is long... and now you can get in my head... it's crowded in there!
I am currently studying law via distance education with Northwestern California University School of Law.

I have owned my own company since 1992, and I will always own the company. I am evolving it into something which can be done part time for the rest of my life.

My primary focus is in Education, Training, and Experience (ETE), and specifically in Asynchronous Open and Distance Learning (AODL).

I developed a program, which I call the Professional Development Weekend, which can be implemented in any of a number of ways, it was designed by me with flexibility in mind and has been successfully used by others across the country to get skill training to people in a very efficient manner.

My goals relate specifically to education, and Asynchronous Open and Distance Learning to bring people up to speed quickly, efficiently and effectively in the performance of their duties.

As my education may reflect, my skills are in research, development, and implementation of education and training programs.

I can work alone or with a small team of subject matter experts to accomplish the mission at hand.

Employment:

VDO1 - 1992 to present.
Litigation support video and audio production company.

Video production, editing, presentation.

I developed the standard, the practice, and I wrote the book on the subject - you should buy it, available from iUniverse directly, or it can be ordered from Barnes and Noble online - just click the image of the book in the menu bar to the left.

Shangri-La at Woodmont HOA - 2007 to present.
Small townhome / villa community in Tamarac, FL.

I serve as the President of the HOA, which means that I get to work with very talented people who know how to get the job done for our community, so that we are fiscally wise and financially strong.

I am a Licensed Community Association Manager, LCAM (Florida).

Living here, truly is, Shangri-La.

Broward College Fort Lauderdale, FL
Associate's Degree (AA) - Completion, 12/1986

Major: Psychology

Focus: I researched various areas of psychology, Cognitive, Comparative, Developmental, Educational, Experimental, Human Factors, and Social Psychology - I have interest in parts of all of that. My personal interests have remained strong through the years.

I am interested is more of what I would term Developmental Social Psychology, and it would refer to the continued development of the whole planet as one large society. It would fall in line with statistical and social analysis. Issac Asimov created a fictional character named Hari Seldon. This character created a theory known as Psychohistory. That theory is closest to what I hold an interest in.
