You have recommended a book so obscure that I cannot find any reviews for it, on any platform. I'm more than a little impressed. Thank you :).
You'd think that after 21 technical interviews I'd get something because of human error if nothing else. Doesn't help that the main insight I got from people boils down to either having no skills to speak of or possessing the least compatible personality since the times of pharaoh Assholetep.
Did I... miss this update? Is there like a Pubski post you made or something? Yeah, "no skills", you're only a budding physicist-mathematician that operates at a level far beyond their age. Do you think you're overly intimidating your interviewers? Maybe they think that you're going to take their jobs out from under them? Because there's absolutely no way that your IRL personality is that dismal. After seeing you interact for 2+ years here, you play nice plenty of the time. Like almost all of it, 'cept when people are asking for it. I'm at maximum perplexion on this one.
Fuck it though, I hope you keep striking out so I can hire you someday, lolz (/s)! Not that I think you couldn't do my future job better than me, I'm just not terribly afraid of the prospect. Then you can hire me! Maybe.
