It's Official

I don't mean to brag--honestly, I don't. Before I tell you my small story, you need a bit of background about me.

When my husband and I planned a church retreat some years ago, we settled on an introduction to Myers-Briggs personality typing. It was fascinating.

I have previously written about my personality type--here--which turned out to be INTJ.
Now, I will spare you the arcane aspects of personality typing right now, should know that the slogan for my personality type is--INTJs can improve anything; just ask.

So, I am constantly thinking about how things can be nudged into being just a bit better.
Our friends (and maybe even our children) recognize this trait in me. More than a decade ago, one of our friends gave me a button that read "I Thought I Was Wrong Once...But I Was Mistaken."

That about sums it up.
(And I hate to be wrong...ahem...but I'm working on that.)

Anyhow--now for the little story. I was looking on Google Maps the other day--looking for a store name. We have a cute little shopping center nearby us, called Shoppes at Susquehanna. When I got to the coordinates on Google Maps--nothing. No mention of that shopping center. What? It's been there at least 5 years. Then, I noticed--Google Maps lets you send them a message if they got something wrong.

Heh heh heh. So, off I sent a message. Then a couple of days ago, I got an answer.

TADA! "Your Google Maps report has been reviewed, and you were right!"
So, it's official.

Even Google Maps acknowledges that I am right.
Now, back to being humble.

So they actually pay attention and adjust. I've seen other errors but never bothered to report them.

Way to go! I also hate to be wrong and have been known to delete a comment made on someone's blog because of a typo.

I used to be just like you describe in your blog entry; but, as you intimate at the end, humble I was not !
Now I try to temper it a bit ... my kids have let me know, in no uncertain terms, that, although my ideas might be right that they can do it just fine on their own.
