DBD 4.26.12 What's a common misconception about you?


So I was preparing for interviews last night and this was one of the practise questions. So I figured it'd obviously be an interesting question.

What's a common misconception about you? What do people think about you that simply isn't true? Maybe it's based on your appearance or rumours or something?

I can think of two - first, (partially relevant to yesterday's discussion) I really don't spend too much time talking about my work outside of work. Partly because I don't want to deal with people who love to hate on bankers. Partly because I don't just want to give out stock advice (only to later be blamed if things don't go perfectly). But mostly because I'm self-aware enough to know that most people aren't interested in the day-to-day details of my job. I have no issue talking about actual macro issues -- the Euro debt crisis, Arab Spring, etc -- but who cares what pitchbook I made or trades I worked that day? And seriously, why do I want to spend the time I have away from work talking about it?

Second one, a lot of people see how I'm dressed and make some assumptions based on that. Some people assume I'm serious and straight-laced (hint, I'm not). Others assume that I'm super arrogant (I joke about it, but I really don't think of myself as better than anyone else). Yet others assume I'm totally awesome (which I am).

Okay, that's enough, time to find some links to calm Twist down.
