Thanks to The Apple for alerting me to this little gem. A website where people can give you anonymous feedback on yourself.
There are a few flaws in this idea. It’s only theoretically anonymous. I mean, I can guess which people would criticize me about what. Which brings us along to flaw #2 – that most people are at least vaguely aware of what’s wrong with them, but they either don’t think it’s that bad or worth the effort, they think it adds to their charm, they’re working on it, or they don’t think people notice. Oh, and one more problem: everyone else can log in too and see what everyone else thinks of you.
There’s a cheerful proposition. I’m almost tempted.
But just imagine if there were an entire world where everyone could give everyone else anonymous feedback on everything. You could just log on and let them know exactly what was wrong with them. And they could back atcha.
(“You know what your problem is? You’re too critical!”)
I can’t figure out how that would play out. Good? Bad? Neither?
