project WORLDVIEW        META THEME         copyright 2020          Home


I am a team player. I love being part of co-operative efforts. I like “win-win” outcomes and think there’s enough glory to go around.  I suspect that my self-esteem benefits from the community groups I belong to, and to a “sense of belonging”. I value a social philosophy / belief system that emphasizes the interdependence of every human being and promotes co-operation over competition.   I'd say I'm more spiritual and value connectedness, than egotistical.  Where applicable, more often I'll say "we" than "I", or refer to “us” instead of “me.”
