Hey all

I'm thinking about writing an article for my web site about the archetypal qualities of a technical writer. I basically want to make a profile/persona that describes:



frame of mind



I was planning on making it a little tongue-and-cheek, but still informative.

Where you all come in: can you provide me with some of this data so I can build the profile? Just drop in an entry or two for each of the "categories" I listed above. Or, create a category I hadn't thought of and add in some entries. :-) Anyway, you can base it on the technical writers you've met, and your own personalities. Opinions are welcome. It won't judge anyone, I promise. :-)

I'll apprecaite any help that I get, but I hope I get enough help to make my idea work. :-) I'll send good vibes to anyone who replies.

Thanks ahead of time.
