I noticed that I described Employee #2 as "unbelievably childish" in my post higher up the page. 

I thought to myself, "like a 15-year old boy in a 24-year old body". 

I remember a policeman telling me at the end of our encounter after Employee #2 was caught with some ganja, that this employee of mine is "budak lagi". 

Aren't these descriptions of developmental retardation? That is to say, a person is not as psychologically developed as their age peers are. 

Developmentally retarded = retarded 

What I should look out for in my search for future workers is how they are psychologically relative to their age. Do they sound "old" relative to their age? Or are they childish? 

I would be looking for people who---relative to their age---have a more complete model of how the world works, have a larger vocabulary, are able to look at an issue from more angles/perspectives, can describe a thing or situation with greater resolution, etc. 

After I am done talking to him/her, I want to feel that I've talked to someone older that what his/her age would indicate. 

But maybe I'm expecting too much. This is, after all, the tailoring industry. One where almost everybody is stupid.

At the Awana Horse Ranch, which is really just a deserted, rundown place in Gohtong Jaya halfway up Genting Highlands, Frenzy the German Shepherd found and chased a squirrel. As you can see, the squirrel lost.

Another one of my dogs, Grey, fought Frenzy for the prize. Grey had the top half of the squirrel in its jaws; Frenzy had the bottom half. The squirrel tore in two.

Grey with the top half of the squirrel. Grey belonged to an Indian farmer next to my house. He obtained Grey to guard his farm. But Grey preferred to hang around my house. He eventually stayed; he never went back to the Indian farmer.

I think despite all my flaws as a hiring manager, I seem to get one thing right: I have a good record of hiring born craftspeople. My previous four hires have turned out to be real craftspeople.

Not that many people are born as craftspeople. For instance, I've noticed that some people have trepidation engaging with the physical world. They feel more comfortable looking at a picture of a cloth on their phones than the physical cloth in front of them. When I hold up a jacket to their face to show them a feature of it, they almost shirk away from it. They prefer ogling it on Instagram or Pinterest. They find real things to be foreign.

Well anyway, what I want to say is that I'm discovering the Malay boy to be quite the craftsperson.

Next week, I have a fashion design student from JB coming for an internship interview. I shall have to figure out what sort of a person he is. Court mandarin, or gardener?

I think what I'm looking for in an employee is that he/she be a craftsperson, and be mindful who the customer is. I'm the customer. I'm trading with the employee. They should see themselves as freelancers, with me being their biggest client.

The problem I had with my previous two employees is that they never saw themselves as trading with me. They have never really traded with anyone. They were never in the open economy. They saw me as a sort of headmaster or something. Being in educational institutions is all they ever knew. I did not like trading with them. I kept feeling I was trying to trade with kindergarten children.

You're looking at the crotch of a trousers that used to have sacrificial barrier patches sewn in. I think someone used a Super 150's or something for the patches, because they have been abraded to nothing. Not only that, the trouser cloth has also ripped. What is not visible is that the cloth has also ripped at the seams. 

I gave this to the Malay boy. Do something, I said. A few hours later...

The Malay boy's previous employer was broken into yesterday morning at 6:30am. The name of the establishment is Bel Homme. It is an ambitious business that comprises 3 offerings: tailoring, hairdressing, and vape supllies. Also a well-stocked Gshock section within the vape shop. 

The two burglars were captured on cctv. None were wearing gloves. Even their getaway car was captured on cctv, but the registration number was indistinct. They stole gshocks, a few suits, shoes, petty cash, etc. They tried taking the arowana in the aquarium, but were unsuccessful. They scraped off a few scales from the fish in the process.

The only thing securing the shop is a little bit of aluminium. 

The police think it was done in collusion with a member of staff.

I get a steady trickle of applications for both full time and internship positions. Above is one of the more noteworthy. 

After three decades in the clothing business, his expected salary is RM3600/month. 

For a large portion of my life, I would have thought such a thing impossible. Given sufficient time, it is always possible to increase one's economic value in a free economy. I mean, there are so many degrees of freedom. You only have to do jobs for which you are peculiarly talented. When you do the job, you approach it so that each time you do it, you do it in a way that the customer notices is better. You also organise yourself such that you can produce more of it. As you make money, you invest it to increase your capabilities or output through "infrastructure": tools, machinery, software, training, etc. 

If you keep doing this, your growth in economic value would be exponential. Or so I thought. 

The principle breaks down when the person has insufficient IQ. Without enough innate intelligence, you are not self-teaching. Meaning, without someone explicitly instructing you on one thing repeatedly, you will never learn to do it better. In fact, there is an erosion over time. The longer they do it, the worse the product. 

With this job applicant, the free market has spoken clearly. He is of little economic value.

Damn, I forgot to come to the real point I wanted to make. 

So I receive all these applications. In almost all of them, I see people of insufficient intelligence. These are people who are in their 20's. When they are in their 50's, they are older but they are no better. 

I want to hire people who areintelligent enough that they are self teaching, and who direct resources (time, attention, capital, talent) to the most promising areas, instead of squandering resources on unpromising things or on addictions.

Can you imagine how much has been invested in him by various employers, co-workers, parents and friends over the decades of his life? The opportunities which were either explicitly given to him, or which were his to take? The coaching, the coaxing, the scoldings, and the teachings he has received over the decades. After all that, he is worth so little. 

This guy has no ability to turn opportunities into things that people value. He is like a tree that you can water and fertilise all you want, but bears no fruit. 

He reminds me of Employee #2.

Impossible. You are a degraded reincarnation of your grandfather, a decorated aristocratic senior Nazi officer, for whom hate and genocide are second nature. In peace times, they are paedophiles.

No salvation for you in this life. Next life, try to avoid being a particularly violent feral cat. 

In the meantime, Crompton has been spreading his false religion to an ever wider audience. Jacomet also really going at it. The rise of the false prophets.

You are a degenerate  psychopath and I should denunce you for animal violence and walking dogs with no mask!

 

Also to denunce you to the religious muslim authorities by having a nasty animal as the Fatua laws say about dogs.

 

Respect law or die!

Yeah. So many cums on his cv. 

In a blinding flash of inspired genius, long in its gestation, it occurred to me to ask for the SPM results of job applicants. This is before they even come for the interview, where I would discover they have 85 points of IQ.

A 22yo final year fashion design student at Inti sent me this:

I never thought it is possible to do so badly in SPM. 

I suspect all these fashion design students are retarded like this.

I am psychologist now ( at least)

And sorry to say Jeremy, you do punctuate quite high on several scales:

 

Antisocial, you love to bash others for pleasure, lack of empathy and kill animals for pleasure, always upset against society or others.

 

Narcissistic, to your side, almost all on clothes business are... I also was but got therapy and get cured. Thanks God for helping me improve. 

 

Passive agressive disorder, google about, always upset against all.

 

Maybe you suffered trauma, bad nursing parents, irresponsable ones and so on?

 

Bullying on school?

 

Hidden and denied homosexuality? ( no joking, might be a cause)

 

My speciality is trauma got by psychopaths and all the prior.

 

To help the inocent from the guilty.
