Fair enough. I'd add another one: You often care a lot about how gifts (deliverables) will be received and benefit your friends (clients), though level varies.

I had an interview last week. The interviewer asked me whether I was apply for other jobs as well & how it was going. After the interview I felt like I shouldn’t have disclosed so much information. I shared that I have been actively applying for other jobs but that I haven’t gotten many responses. And that in the meantime I’ve been focusing on developing myself (finished reading PMBOK, taking LinkedIn Learning PM course, etc). Should I have said this? Now they know I don’t have many options 🤦🏾‍♀️.
