behavioral competencies

Apparently my employers will be "looking at" behavioural competencies. How alarming.
Spare a thought for us geeks who thought that we'd found a niche that tolerated a degree of social dysfunction.

I consulted wikipaedia on the subject, only to discover that the reason I can never type that URL is because they've misspelled the domain name, surely the c'rect English speling should be wikipaedia if it is meant to reflect similar roots to encyclopaedia?

Anyway I see the Scottish translation, a refreshingly down to earth work, refers to "behavioural competencies" with the reassuring message "The'r nae text on this page the nou." confirming my suspicion that it may be a load of poncy nonsense.

I know nothing, I'm not a fortune teller, and you'd be insane to think that I am. This disclaimer was cribbed from an email footer I once received. It is so ridiculous I had to have it for myself.
