HFDS – The Coach

Humanity, Foreground, Detail, and Shape

You perceive the world with particular attention to humanity. You focus on what’s in front of you (the foreground) and how that is affected by the details of life. You are also particularly drawn towards the shapes around you. Because of the value you place on humanity, you tend to seek out other people and get energized by being around others. You like to deal directly with whatever comes your way without dealing with speculating possibilities or outcomes you can’t control. You are highly focused on specific goals or tasks and find meaning in life by pursuing those goals. You prefer a structured environment within which to live and you like things to be predictable.

Live Journal was probably the first instance of my using Katen as a handle. 

Previously, I had used fiona_mclaud, a perversion of William Sharp’s pseudonym Fiona MacLeod.  That handle was chosen because at the time my name was Katherine Miller.  Do you know how many Katherine Miller’s there are in this world?  So many than when I used to go and pick up my college loan check, the lady that took care of the L-Ns commented that she had a niece named Katherine Miller.  Who in fact looked a little like me.  Unless I wanted to be KatherineMiller7252, I had to choose something not my name.

By 2001, when I created my LJ, I was married and had been for over a year.  I like my married name, Katherine Nabity, but it’s still a bit cumbersome for use as a handle.  (Or username, if I join the 21st century.)  Therefore I shortened it.  Katen.  ‘Course, I never go by Kate, which is slightly counter intuitive, but it’s better than Katherinen or Kathyn.  Katen has become my default user name now, modified to Katenab if Katen is unavailable.
