What Does Your Phone Say About You?

White Nokia N9

Smart phone, touch screen, candy bar, slider, etc. All different types of phones whose main job it is to make a phone call. However, this is becoming less and less important though it will remain the main function of these devices for a while.

The functionality of all the phones available vary greatly. Some simply make calls and send text. Others are small computers capable of doing just about anything on a mobile scale (such as take over small cities if a small group wanted to). Each phone carries a certain capacity to aid the end user. What can your phone do? What is your phone’s capacity in terms of productivity, memory, processing power, bandwidth? What do these things say about you?

Today everything evolves around apps (applications). There are apps for just about everything from entrainment to serious business accounting. If we compare you to your phone and your apps to your current skills and interest, what will we discover? Are you walking around with an old flip phone? Is your phone a 10-key, full qwerty, touch screen or some combination there of? Does your phone have full Internet capability, expandable memory, an 8 mega pixel camera? What about your phone’s OS, is that upgradable? Does your phone even have an OS? Let’s break this down a little more.

Memory: Capacity
Older phones say how many numbers you can hold while newer phone just speak about how much internal memory (mega/gigabytes) the phone has. Now it’s how much internal memory plus expandable memory. When we add in “Cloud” (Internet apps and storage) technology, it continues even more! Did you even know what “the cloud” is before you read this? How does this compare to you?

Operating System (OS): Philosophy
How do you do everything. What is the ideologies links all your actions and thoughts together? Is it upgradable? Have you upgraded? Are you afraid to upgrade? Is it a popular OS like Apple’s iOS  or Android or an uncommon one like Meego?

Processing power: Efficiency
How many task can you handle at once? Do you have too many apps running and your whole system runs slow?

Bandwidth: Effectiveness
How much info can you take in at once. Working on the EDGE network or do you have 4G running strong? Is your phone even capable of using the Internet or downloading anything?

Qua-band: Sociable and Amiable Qualities
How many types of people can you get along with in the world? Or can you limited to one type (band)?

Carrier: Group/Religion/Cult
Who provides your thoughts and how much coverage do you get with them? Do they have you SIM locked to them (your phone only works on their network)? Will they let you unlock your phone or do you have to jailbreak it? Some carriers won’t let go easily.

Screen Lock: Privacy
What is the level of privacy you operate at? Can your phone even lock others out or is it open to the public? Can anyone get a hold of your information easily?

Phone cover: Protection
Do you have any protection from harm for your phone like an Otter box? Trust, corporations, asset protection, tax shelter?

Mobile Hot spot: Helpfulness
How helpful are you to others? Do people come to you for things. Is this important to you?

Talk Time: Health
What level of health are you at? Can you last all day or does your battery drain after a couple hours?

There are a lot of terms and things that go into a phone. Many are unimportant to the end user but are vital to phones usage. How much do you know about your phone? How important is it to know more and how much more? How would that a/effect aid you in your daily activities?

Do you operate in the world like an old phone where these terms are meaningless or the technology isn’t even available on your phone? Do you have a Smartphone just because everyone else dose? Are you in your phone too much or overwhelmed by the technology? Do you refuse to change and keep coming up with arbitrary excuse to justify your current level of technology? Do you actually need to upgrade? There are a lot of questions here and finding the answers will reveal a lot about yourself. These answers are needed to properly seize control of your life, circumstances and situations. We’re going to continue covering and expanding on this concept in this phone series. Look at your phone and how you utilize it. Do you even have a phone? How does this reflect your life? Is there a phone you want verse the one you have? Do you like the phone you have?

    A recent study published in PNAS (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America), an important scientific journal, shows that a memory task called dual n-back improves working memory (short term memory) and fluid intelligence. These findings are important because fluid intelligence was previously thought to be unchangeable.

    It is my goal to practice this every day and become superman. Or superbrain at least, but I figure if you have a superbrain then everything else is easier to make super.. 🙂

    I have a smart phone with apple iOS .The reason ichose this phone is that I want seamless integration in my life.i want the ability to work whether or not I am at my desk.I also am a fan of simplicity the more I can eliminate the better.Since I work primarily in ios(my iPad ) the phone allows me to push projects and files wirelessly to all my devices,”integration”.I admire the stability I’ve experienced over the course if time I’ve used apple products and thus continue to use them to this day.i feel I maximize my time using all the components of this system .As far as what this says about me , i really want simplicity and transparency in my life.I don’t want to be confined to a specific location for gainful employment or hindered by my location from productivity. And I don’t like spending a lot of time “fixing ” versus “using” or “doing” .So I tend to favor quality over popularity and what manner I am able to integrate things into my life as opposed to the converse..
