A beginning coder's guide to half of the behavioral design patterns with an alternate telling of Goldilocks and the Three Bears.
I'm working at SeeClickFix, an app that helps citizens report local issues to municipal governments. You can see other work I've done at my Github and CodePen profiles, and my online notebook. In my spare time I write about coding, my life, and random musings.
A note I'd taken while abroad on my time in Hungary's capital, and learning to be happy alone as well as with others.
- Good people who feel big try to lift up others, wanting to share the joy.
- Bad people who feel big try to push others down, terrified to lose their spot.
- Good people who feel small try to climb up, helping others when they can.
- Bad people who feel small try to drag others down, finding “joy” in spreading their misery.
We can’t always control how big or small we feel in the world. At least we can choose not to be an asshole about it.
An eFriend of mine pointed out how many people in a group chat don’t often write something productive. Instead, they often talked in circles, shared few facts or insights, and more often seemed just liked reading their own words.
So for the record, productive conversations mean accepting there are smarter people worth taking advice from. Even if (perhaps especially if) you’re a man and the smarter people are women.
