Of course, the above is only my own assessment of myself - and is therefore subject to my personal bias. I would like to learn the assessments that people who know me may give me on the above traits to find out the reality: putting it all together may provide some worthwhile insights.
I claim that a sizable bit of the credit for the high scores I give myself on some of the above traits must go to my consistent, systematic and regular practice of OPMS in all that I do. (Before I started using OPMS, I believe I would have scored much lower on all the above traits).
I would be most happy to find out the self-assessments for the above traits of others at Math-Teach.
As always, I expecially seek the valued opinions of Haim, Wayne Bishop, Robert Hansen and other members of the 'Math-Teach Family' on my above thoughts.
