What Are Yours? 7 Things I Am Not Handling Well


Posted on 17 May 2019 21:00 in ASKSiddhiのひとりごと by Yoko Deshmukh

You are strong only because you can do what all I cannot do!

ASKSiddhi's Japanese profile page receives a constant number of accesses recently, and so I thought now is a good time to introduce the things I am not good at, to avoid misunderstanding. Here we go. 

1. Multiple tasks at a time
I tend to make mistakes and cause significant trouble if I try to do more than one things simultaneously. Let me finish one by one. 

2. Continually responding to SNS, instant messengers, personal emails
My processing capacity is so tiny that easily overflown by a specific volume of inputs. Usually, I turn off most of the notifications of SNS and messengers, etc. Instead, I occasionally go and check all those new messages whenever I get time. However, on the other hand, I do respond to work or professional related inquiries as fast as I can. People call it "genkin (=cash) na hito" (literal meaning is "calculating person") in Japanese!

3. Small talks
As my brain does not run as fast as yours, I like to skip all the formalities and directly get to the point even if we are meeting for the first time. It's not like I am not interested in you, but I believe that whether or not I feel excited and comfortable with the other person's personality and the vibe is more important than knowing the background of each other. Also, some personal questions are too odd or annoying to answer. 

4. Conversations with a too negative or too positive person
I bump on the deadlock if the other person responds to its self-satisfactory conclusions out of whatever I say.

5. Telling a lie or adulation
I don't like to give or receive any of them. Therefore, whatever I say by being exclaimed and overwhelmed are real words. 

6. Criticism
Even if I find some shortcomings of a person, I like to ignore or leave them, and when those are unbearable, I rather keep distance than pointing them out. 

7. Making friends or buddies
"Pune International Tea Party" is entirely non-profit making event out of my hobby. I like to welcome new and old participants equally so they can thoroughly mix and mingle together. Therefore, I do not actively invite my friends or acquaintances, although their participation is always welcome. Sometimes I deliberately keep the gap between two tea parties to circulate the fresh air in the meet-up. "Pune International Tea Party" is for everyone interested in the international exchanges, and people should feel free to participate regardless of their nationalities and backgrounds. 

These are all that I am poor at handling; most of them are related to human relationships. 
So, please do not misunderstand me when I am taking too much time in responding to you, it's just that I am a person who has a slow processor. If you like, please help me whenever you can!
