Who Am I? Motivations

My top motivation factor is recognition.  I like getting recognized because it proves I have done something resizable.  When I helped my grandpa fix the feeder chain on his combine he said that I was a great help and that he could do it himself.  On Wednesday I helped my dad get the pump out of the combine header.  I know he could not have done it himself.  He had hit himself with a hammer in the thumb knuckle twice as hard as he could.  He was using a push and a hammer and the hammer slipped and hit his thumb knuckle.  When we came in for supper he said that he was thankful for my help and that he would not have done it without me.  My second motivation factor is achievement.  In both of those scenarios I had achieved something I have always wanted.  The trust of my dad and my grandpa who I both look up too.  My dad is always pushing me to be better every day.

Who Am I? Knowledge

I like computers and how they work.  It will be cool to learn how a computer works.  I think it will be fun to take one apart and put it back together.  I would also like to create a program for a lot of people to use.  My dad has created a radio business and I want to take it over some day.  I will get to climb 500 ft towers.  It will be fun to learn from the best.  He was up late every night and up early every morning.  I would get to go with him some days when I wasn’t at school.  My mom was an accountant for the mayor in vermilion when she was younger.  I would like to see how to be an accountant so I can help my dad make important money decisions on the farm and with his radio business.

Who Am I? Interests

 

I am a  hands on guy.  I like to get my hands dirty.  When I am working on the combine with my grandpa he will let me do the hard work and the dirty work.  He said it is because he has had his turn getting dirty and now it’s my turn.  He was a mechanic in the old days.  I think things through to see if they would actually work in real life before I do them.  I am not a dreamer. I am a developer.

Who Am I? Personality.

Who Am I? Personality.

I like to work in small groups of two or three.  I think it gets too crowded when there are more than three.  I prefer to work alone because I am with my thoughts and not distracted by others.  It is easier to write and think when there aren’t three people talking to you at once or three people arguing over whose answer is right and who’s wrong.  I am influenced not by my personal bias but by what I know.

My Learning Styles

My Learning Styles
 

 

I am Kayden McPhee.  I like to do things myself.  I like when i get to do things myself it is a sense of me growing up and becoming a responsible kid.  When I was younger I had to sit on my grandpa’s knee to drive the truck or the combine, now when I ask to drive the truck or the combine I am allowed to drive it by myself.  This is my learning style.
