I’m freakishly good at getting problems solved, especially if it requires the right balance of being direct and diplomatic with a dash of “look, if we don’t settle this I’m going to be a pain your a** for a very long time” if necessary.
People often come to me for help but not because I’m some kind of genius. I think it’s because I ask them enough questions for them to self-assess their own situation and consequently solve their own problems.
At other times, people come to me because I am a wealth of random and sometimes useful information, like how to ask a first line customer service agent to make it a “warm transfer” before they bump you over to another department or how to get a broken light bulb of out of a fixture without electrocuting yourself.
Yeah, totally random knowledge about a bunch of unrelated stuff.
What are you freakishly good at?
