If I were the judge, then Kevin’s solution may get rejected or rated mediocre.
I think the judgement can be unreasonably tough when the judge herself is a practitioner — consider Yang and Sundip Jangi.
On the other hand,
- Yang liked my OO design in EOS
- Sundip liked my personalization design
The outcome (PIP etc) doesn’t mean my work (i.e. output) is sub-standard. The outcome has many reasons and causes.
I need to be fair and impartial to myself. [[learned optimism]] uses the three P’s. One of them is Personal.
