I’ve been wondering how MBTI stands up to research. And looky here! 15 Personality Tests Compared for 2022 (traitlab.com)
It’s exciting to see more and more people sharing their critical knowledge freely online and also still finding a way to support themselves.
Traitlab.com above being one example. Mynoise.net and Epbot.com are the other two that come to mind immediately. WikiPedia and Wiktionary are sorta crowd sourced versions.
I started realizing today (Jan 17th) that in addition to speaking up about things that I see (advocacy) I’ve also begun coaching folks in their 20s-30s who are early on in their careers. They tend to react with bemusement when I tell them they aren’t charging me enough.
Here’s my logic:
$60/hour was considered reasonable years ago for folks working without a license or insurance and doing physical labor that required experience
Now add cost of living increase.
And license/bonding fees.
And retirement savings since Social Security doesn’t look super secure and hard physical labor is not really a long term option for many bodies.
Health insurance costs.
Bay area extra cost or travel costs to live in less expensive areas.
So now you’re looking at probably at least $100/hour per person. So if the job is done in 2 hours by 2 people, that’s still $400.
Women are generally underpaid and we tend to undercharge habitually based on that.
And I was doing it too in my 20s/30s and didn’t have anyone to tell me I was under-charging.
