Whenever people talk about Herb’s accomplishments, they invariably end with the same sentiment.
And it makes him cringe.
Certainly, many are impressed to meet an icon in the world of psychological assessments, one who codeveloped an approach that can accurately identify an individual’s strengths, motivations, and potential. Their thoughts may have been expanded by one of the articles he coauthored in the Harvard Business Review, just as their hearts may have been touched by a keynote presentation he delivered at a global conference. But invariably, they end by saying something along the lines of “and, on top of all that, he is blind.”
That last sentiment is very unsettling for Herb. He dislikes it. Immensely.
