For me some are:
Funerals
Bars (good thing I don't drink)
Managing other people
Interact with anglo women
Places where people are talking from different directions
Multi-tasking
Live meetings: I generally attend remotely from my desk

I often am asked "Is anything wrong? at buffets and cafeterias. Try getting lunch when the noise and movement around you make you dizzy. It can be done, but apparently it makes people around you uncomfortable (that's THEIR problem).


My manager told me not to give up on managing people. He thinks one day, I can manage an offshore team. What are some things you won't even attempt, because they are 100% beyond your ability?

Just a few:

Brain surgery
Flying without the aid of any mechanical external device
Reading other peoples minds
Understanding women

Depends on what you're defending. Defending unappreciative sheep seems to be a mindset.

1) Don't like to fly. I figure that God put my nose at the height it is for a reason
2) Don't ski or run, knees are shot
3) Hate roller coasters
4) LOVED taking a 44 foot MLB into the surf

Communicating with other people who are willing to admit....They don't know, what they don't know, they don't know. And not trying to always pretend...they somehow, DO?
