Maybe this is is just me, but it’s an across the board pet peeve when shows directly equate female strength with physical violence. Like somehow “strong female characters” means women in leather jackets swigging from flasks and punching people in the face. It’s my belief you don’t have to act like Popeye the Sailor Man to be strong, male or female. Being vulnerable takes strength, being a leader takes strength, standing up for what’s right instead of what’s safe takes strength.

anonymous asked:

I have a question for you, guild leader to guild leader. Why do you require an OOC interview but not an IC interview to join Coram Populo? Also, why do you use vent/Skype/voice chat for your interviews and not just whispers or an application post on your website?

Guild Recruitment

I have received this question a few times both here on Tumblr and via our official guild email address (corampopuloguild@gmail.com), so I figured I would answer it so people understand why our recruitment process was designed like this.

First, I should note that our recruitment process for raiders is slightly different than our recruitment process for role players or social members. Our guild rules and personal conduct policies are the same for all members, of course, but each division leader within Coram Populo sets their own rules and policies for the activities, groups, teams, and events that fall within their jurisdiction. As such, Tellara Evensong, our PvE Division Leader, approves all prospective members who wish to become part of our raid team or participate in PvE-related activities.

Second, I should note that our recruitment methods and strategies, much like World of Warcraft (and the Internet) itself, have changed over the years so that we may best adapt to the current state of affairs in-game and our own needs. For example, years ago, it was much more common for role play guilds to require prospective role players to submit lengthy applications on a guild website or guild forum in addition to availing themselves for an IC and OOC interview with guild officers before they were considered for membership. These days, it is hard to simply get people to go to a guild forum and sign up for an account, much less a writing sample.

I’ll try to answer each aspect of your questions as best I can, but since my overall response will most likely become fairly lengthy, I’m going to put it under a “read more” tag.

PLEASE NOTE: The recruitment methods and strategies employed by Coram Populo are just that, the methods and strategies employed by Coram Populo. Each guild is unique and so is each guild leader and officer corps. What works for one guild might not work for another guild. If you are a guild leader, do what works for you!

How to Live Longer

How to Live Longer

I have found the answer to eternal life. Well maybe not eternal, but you could certainly live longer.

But first let me ask you; don’t you just hate it when people say ‘What’s wrong with you today, you don’t look very happy?’

Maybe you don’t feel like smiling on that particular day, for no particular reason. Or maybe you feel like punching them in the nose.

However, a report in American…

Am I someone people can believe in?

If life’s journey is like a bus ride: there are drivers, and there are passengers.

(there are also conductors, there are navigators, there are engineers…)

There are a lot more passengers on the bus than drivers.

What does it take to be a driver?

The drivers are people that passengers can believe in.  Who do we believe in?  I am reminded of the Trust Equation.  Trust is made up of 4 elements –…

Catchy headline. Jerk is the wrong word.

What this article says, really, is that successful leaders (in the field of business) are ones who are able to to carry out actions for the greater good that other people refuse to do because:

1. the action violates social norms

2. the action makes people feel emotionally uncomfortable.

This behavior likely follows a bimodal distribution. People employing this strategy will either rise to the top or massively flame-out. There’s very little room in the middle for this personality style.
