Personality type according to Myers-Briggs Type Indicator

E = Extroverted
S = Sensing
T = Thinking
J = Judging

"Creating order out of chaos" is one extraverted thinker's way of describing her volition. Determined, logical, critical, they love a challenge, especially one that will allow tangible improvement in productivity, efficiency or profitability. They are direct, finding the quickest, most direct path between what is and what should be.
They excel at implementing ideas and are often on the lookout for good ideas worthy of their attention. They are quick to organize, orchestrate, find resources, coordinate, and follow through to the end of a project. They love a problem, especially one that will make full use of their competencies, their logic and sense of order, justice and fair play.
Many find competition to be stimulating and fun. "These are the rules of the game now let us play." Fairness is sharing and respecting the same set of rules, so may the best one win. And since they readily acknowledge that there will be a winner and a loser, they would simply much rather be the winner. So they hone their strategies on the fine knife of experience and sharpen their skills to meet the next challenge head on.
They love having greater challenges bestowed on them as a result of having successfully met the last, as this attests to their competence and skills. They appear dispassionate because of their impersonal and objective approach, but close observation will reveal deep passion and enthusiasm as well as sensitivity, especially to cherished ones. However they expect others to roll up their sleeves as they do and meet the task in spite of personal hardships or discomfort.
They have little tolerance for personal whims that threaten a smooth running operation. They are direct and honest with most things that displease them and expect others to do the same. Their humanity shows in their sense of fairness and justice as well as their love of humour.

My Type

Your programmer personality type is:


You're a Planner.
You may be slow, but you'll usually find the best solution. If something's worth doing, it's worth doing right.

You like coding at a High level.
The world is made up of objects and components, you should create your programs in the same way.

You work best in a Team.
A good group is better than the sum of it's parts. The only thing better than a genius programmer is a cohesive group of genius programmers.

You are a liBeral programmer.
Programming is a complex task and you should use white space and comments as freely as possible to help simplify the task. We're not writing on paper anymore so we can take up as much room as we need.

One of Microsoft's finest technicans was drafted and sent to boot camp. At the rifle range, he was given some instruction, a rifle, and bullets. He fired several shots at the target. The report came from the target area that all attempts had completely missed the target.
The technician looked at his rifle, and then at the target. He looked at the rifle again, and then at the target again. He put his finger over the end of the rifle barrel and squeezed the trigger with his other hand. The end of his finger was blown off, whereupon he yelled toward the target area, "It's leaving here just fine, the trouble must be at your end!"

Month of Ramazan

Our holy month of Ramazan started. In this month office time are reduced to minimum, but my current company had hardly reduced it 1 hour. And they had made arrangements for night meeting on which they are only paying us a mere amount which donot fulfill our requirements. Some of us protested so now a little increase is expected lets see how much...


Technology by USA
Technology is something which has made us dull,
Technology is something which has made us quick,
Technology is something which has made us bad,
Technology is something which has made us good,
Technology is something which has made us far from humanity,
Technology is something which has made us near our loved one,
So I cannot tell whether technology is good or bad,
But I am a technical guy so I love Technology.

Problems by USA
Life is full of problems
But one has solution for problems
Standing strong and determined in front of problems
And so he is the one who’s solving problems
Life without problems …
Is just as living like angels,
But we are humans so we should love problems.

Developer Estimates

We are working on a confidential project as i cannot name it here ;) cause we got some NDA stuff related to it. Well i am leading some team here, we have to provide development estimates for particular features which is a common practice. I dont have a good idea how to estimate them correctly,but always try to do my best. Last time i saw around 200 hours for my feature estimated by our parent company. I have to send the actual one, i asked my dev to make his estimates well he is quite good. he shortens the time to approx 100 hrs. but some of our senior mangement still want justification on this estimates and called me up for interrogation. First i try to persuade him but when he is not gtting my point. I asked him that can i review it for 10 minutes. Later i just use my newly learned WBS(Work breakdown Structure) technique to make estimates and to my idea i have increased the time line by approx 2 days. and when we met again he is quite satisfied with this estimates. Lucky me as i got more time now to complete the same feature. I dont know is it me that fool him around or the estimates are really good.

Confusing Terms of CRM

One of my friend called me and was asking about some terms of CRM. Although not difficult but some what confusing for new comers. He is working on sugar CRM and have a problem in identifyng Lead, Opportunity, Account and Contact. Well the term lead is same as sales lead it is before the first contact with the person but he may be interested if contacted. Secondly Opportunity is a fair opportunity depending on the sales man, he had an open opportunity to make a cold opportunity or hot one. If it becomes cold then he missed the sales but if it is hot one. He is surely becoming a client or account for him. Account is basically the sales account it can either be a person or a corporate. If it is corporate you can create mulitple contacts for each account and a single one for person. Both contact and acount can be used for further sales and service jobs.

1.Programmer produces code he believes is bug-free.
2.Product is tested. 20 bugs are found.
3.Programmer fixes 10 of the bugs and explains to the testing department that the other 10 aren't really bugs.
4.Testing department finds that five of the fixes didn't work and discovers 15 new bugs. 5.Repeat three times steps 3 and 4.
6.Due to marketing pressure and an extremely premature product announcement based on overly-optimistic programming schedule, the product is released.
7.Users find 137 new bugs.
8.Original programmer, having cashed his royalty check, is nowhere to be found.

Love by USA
What is Love?
Love is just emotion of fools,
Fools making fool of others,
Others who don’t have some thing to do
Do Live for Love.
Love make people fall
Fallen people are never great,
Great people never love.
