Personal development review (2)

I'm still filling in the bastard form - at quarter to ten in the evening, with the actual meeting tomorrow. Why is it so difficult? I guess it pains me that I have to lie quite so much.

And here I am bloody blogging about it... does it still count as displacement activity when you're quite up front about trying to avoid doing what you should be doing?

I was doing one of those today. In the bit where I was supposed to list my 'skills, experience and behaviours that might contribute to my personal development' I did include the statement "filling in forms like this is not one of my skills"

I once had to complete a skills audit for research. I asked the person deputed to carry out the audit with me whether it would cause problems if I gave spoof answers. His reply was to practically beg me not to do it. "They are horribly serious". The people who design these have no humour and no sense - why do we let them control our lives? I suffer with you in spirit.

I'm considering pasting in large chunks of last year's form to see if it gets noticed...
