Paul MacPherson


My name is Paul MacPherson and I go by paulmacp almost everywhere online these days. I post 140 character updates about things that interest me, I have friends I interact with online, sometimes I like to ramble on a bit about my opinions and perspectives on things. I also work for a living.


I am a; brother, father, technician, intellectual, and a proud Canadian. I have been online one way or another for over twenty years now, and a computing professional for more than twenty-five. I enjoy Guinness, live theatre sushi, and vacations. I am good at many things, I am not very good at many more, but always have a desire to learn and improve.


In early June 2014, I took a course in effective communication, this course opened my eyes to what is termed behavioural science and how it affects communication. The pursuit of understanding why we react, why we do what we do as a result of good or bad communication (emotional intelligence) has become a real passion for me. Here on my blog I intend to keep a running notebook of thoughts, musings and discoveries on the related topics of behavioural science and effective communication.
