Good morning, everybody, and welcome to the very first lecture of the Equity course. Now, some of you guys might have been told a bit about equity before coming to do the GDL at BPP. You might have been told by your peers, your friends, people who’ve done the GDL in the past, that equity is an impossible subject. It’s one of the trickiest things you’re ever going to do, basically your life is going to end, and it’s death and pain and suffering if you’re trying to do the course, and AHHH. Or words to that sort of effect.
This is going to be a good module.
oh my fucking god I’m sorry the introvert/extrovert thing is absolute bullshit sure there are people who relax be being alone and some people who relax socially but you don’t have to build up a whole mythology around it
ok look at a list of things that apparently apply particularly to extroverts or particularly to introverts
- offer them options
- respect their privacy
- accept and encourage their enthusiasm
- understand when they are busy
- never embarrass them in public
- respect their independance
THESE ARE ACTUALLY THINGS YOU SHOULD DO FOR *EVERYONE* IT’S CALLED BEING A DECENT PERSON
YOU COULD PROBABLY REPLACE “INTROVERT” AND “EXTROVERT” WITH *RANDOM STAR SIGN* AND STICK IT IN THE LAST FEW PAGES OF YOUR FREE LOCAL NEWSPAPER AND NOBODY WOULD BE ABLE TO TELL THE DIFFERENCE

Reading up about pre-war flying boat airlines:
The land operations were based at Croydon Airport to the south of London. [Imperial Airways] immediately discontinued its predecessors’ service to points north of London, the airline not being interested in serving what they regarded as the ‘provinces’. Thereafter only IAL aircraft operating ad hoc charter flights deigned to fly ‘North of Watford’.
“As we know, the monarch is very busy. He’s got six wives, he’s composing Greensleeves, he’s dissolving a monastery, he’s got a spot of bother with the Pope - last thing he wants is people queuing up outside Hampton Court saying ‘Henry, man, help me.’”
