i bet most of us can relate to this group of cats. the setting can be the classroom, at home, among friends, or co-workers. with a parent, a sibling, a teacher, a leader or a boss. do you tend to be the speaker, explainer, strategist? are you the attentive or relaxed listener? or the one who takes notes? do you have a buddy to discuss with later? or are you the bored or naughty one at the back or apart from the group? i've always been a notetaker (though sometimes it takes a while to understand my handwriting). i always stay at the back because i'm tall. i don't crack jokes or play pranks. i don't like it when i'm appointed or expected to be the leader. i have initiative, do my part and even go the extra mile.

During a long discussion or boring workshop, in class training session...Im the one trying to keep myself awake. I nod off and on and by the time it ends I have whiplash.

it's a challenge all right. one teacher told me when they're in a seminar, they pass notes to each other!

I am an organizer pf the meeting. It seepends on what kind of agenda is it. I can be the note taker, I can be the implementor but I am likely to be the back office. Meaning I am the person behind the scenes.

I am all of these - depending on the situation. In my younger days, I'd rather be the person in back though . . . the quiet notetaker trying to do my best to hide. But these days I speak out if the situation calls for it - I don't mind being the leader if I know exactly what I'm doing . And I do like to be the funny one .

@hereandthere I used to be never outwardly funny . But I was quite a prankster at work - and now I just try to translate it to real life !

That's a nice illustration. I pay attention and take notes but don't like to be noticed.

People often say that I act bossy and sounds bossy.. but actually I am just a teamplayer .. I pay attention and make sure I do part well .. I don't like bossing people around ..so I guess I will never be a good leader ..

Are they plotting to takeover the world? In a way I have to have the awareness of a cat because no one will look over me but my self.

I'm the one who always took notes from my elementary grades to college. BTW, I don't think you're a cat but a chick
