Rabbi - What I Really Do Meme

The "What I Really Do" meme has taken over the Internet.

As explained on the website: "What People Think I Do / What I Really Do is a series of visual charts depicting a range of preconceptions associated with a particular field of occupation or expertise. Unlike image macro series that are based on singular stereotypes like Advice Animals, this series compares varying impressions about one’s profession held by others, self-image and the often mundane reality of the job."

The meme originated with artist Garnet Hertz's various preconceived notions and generalizations that are associated with being a contemporary artist.

Here is my 'RABBI' contribution to the meme:

Rabbi Hillel Norry said...

Regarding what I really do...

I once heard it expressed as 90% of the people don't know 90% of what you do 90% of the time.

When we get beyond the chuckling, the real question is "What are the emotional implications, professional consequences, and personal impact that this understanding gap can cause?"

Also, do they really want to know what we really do, or would they prefer their version of the fantasy?

I had not heard of this in my far away overseas neck of the woods, but it is absolutely wonderful and fabulous, a great idea. Thanks for sharing this. I need to do one for "freelancer journalist"
