Introduction

[September] As I'm over the age of being AuPair I may continue to provide support to families as a service provider if requested. Since 2006 I assisted with driving children in Oxford, London, Luxembourg, France, Geneva and I've been living eight years in the UK working other jobs. In my twenties I worked as AuPair Plus one year long for one family, plus a cumulative year for other families. I think I had better relationships with small families of Rational (Phlegmatic) personality types. Choleric temperament often described as people who always want to dominate, easily irritable, unstable, impulsive, very energetic, combined with a lack of discipline seemed not easy going or risky to me; In general I tried to offer privileges such as: no contractual obligations, request of my support on demand, not charging money for the sitting hours and I never counted my working hours with the stopwatch. The values I share with the families I worked for are: maintaining a balanced lifestyle, working intelligently, not making a fuss of petty things.

Of the four main types of personalities according to Myers-Briggs test I'm an engineer (INTP) and I don't have a 4-in-1 personality. It's a delusion to call myself "Carer + Entertainer + Preacher + Superman"; Skills I've been rewarded for are driving, ironing, gardening, Maths & IT, creativity, hard skills (not soft skills). I did not have little brothers to look after but I convinced foreigners to look after their children. I help to maintain houses that are organised like systems. Efficiency means to me more time left to enjoy life, for both the employer and the employee. The equation of inefficiency is when the speed of creating disorder is not equal to the speed of creating order. Sometimes the employee can be slower to create order or the employer faster to create disorder; To find out how responsible someone is give them total freedom and see what they do with it. I believe people who listen during crises are more intelligent.

They say there is no such thing as a free lunch. That is the reason why I am accountable for my expenses: cooking for myself costs me £100/month, utilities £10/month, heating £100/winter; I accept to be a servant for a queen in which case my service fees are zero. Else, considering that the market rates cleaning ladies charges are about £10/h and that there is an alleged gender pay gap, I should be paid at least as much as cleaning ladies. However living in times when empires are falling money is quite worthless. I believe the government inflates the cost of childcare by offering childcare benefits; Employers who demanded full time work, plus a CV, plus excellent references, plus flexibility, plus to solve expensive problems, where still not satisfied, so I won’t answer such requests, I don’t beg for jobs. I trust: healthy people, dialogue, science, sportsmanship, transparency, what I see and feel, what I analyze, free markets. I don't trust: single parenthood, feminism, collectivism, wishful-thinking, compromising, gambling, feeling uneasy or "walking on eggshells", pseudo-science, propaganda, manipulations, self-victimization, bureaucracies, double-standards, horses, cats.

“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live it's whole life believing that it is stupid.” Also, when I criticise constructively I avoid using labels (like 'stupid'), and use instead verbs, (like "the fish does not want to learn to swim”). Some single mothers used shaming tactics like calling me “a beast”, “selfish” or “son of a bitch” ("beast" is a joke!). Even when I did take a role not fit for me, I handled conflicts without making damage or leaving a scar on anyone and I also read books about that skill. For me fun means awareness of unnecessary wars. I think a sign of courage is to accept reality with it’s pleasant and less pleasant experiences.
