Here's a situation:
Let's say that there is a project in which students are invited to volunteer. The project involves 5-6 hours a week of practice (that is cca 3 hours of actual practice, and the rest is preparation and paperology) and 1 supervision a week (90 mins). Let's say that the rule was set at the beginning of the year in which a volunteer can only miss 2 supervision meetings max within a given year.
Let's say that one of the volunteers is also an avid amateur dancer who performs on dancing shows a few times a year. And let's say that she already missed two supervisions in 4 months (once she was sick, the second time was sister's wedding or something, don't remember clearly) - and now, the date of her next dancing show is suddenly changed so that it's at the same time as a supervision meeting. This means that she either has to break the rule and miss her third supervision, risking to be kicked out of the project, or cancel her dance performance and risk messing up her dance group and future participation in it.
My questions for you are:
1) if you were the supervisor, would you kick her out of the project if she chooses the dance show, or would you make an exemption? Why?
2) if you were the volunteer-dancer, which choice would you make? Knowing that choosing one most likely means losing the other.
Btw. I'm not asking for advice, it's just a situation I witnessed and it's in the past now. I'm simply curious about what choice would ENTJs make from either perspective.
BIGJake111 Oh, so you're saying that the "Random Thoughts Thread" is just thinly veiled code for "MsBossyPants Appreciation Thread", I like it. I guess all threads in the forum only relate to ENTJs as a whole then? ;) I'm kidding thanks for the reply.
@MsBossyPants I'm someone who enjoys a good roasting too and I have no problem with criticism, but I prefer it when reasons are given. I'll take what I can from it and discard (to a greater or lesser extent) the rest.
I think the points you make about that thread potentially setting a dangerous precedent for abuse are good ones, even if in your individual case it would have been a lot of fun. I guess I'll have to find other avenues for expressing my admiration, you got snapchat? ;) haha
@BIGJake111 "were both allergic to fish" I'm literally crying onto my computer
When do they get to the interesting stuff?
