Professional Career Movie. Infographic. About me. Autobiography. I was born (6 weeks premature) on Monday morning, January 23, 1950 at my parent's home on the grounds of my grandfather's coffee plantation, Hacienda Esperanza, in Barrio Guilarte (1843 feet up in the central mountains) of Adjuntas, Puerto Rico.
(Another map of Adjuntas here.) I was named after my father, José Antonio, to which was added Tomás thus explaining how I grew up with the family nickname of Tommy. My father left for the United States when I was 5 and the next year sent for us: my mother, Lucila, myself and my younger brother, René - we arrived in Elizabeth, New Jersey and lived there for a dozen years. René and I (the only Hispanics at the school at that time) attended Saint Mary of the Assumption (both grammar and high school) where we were also Boy Scouts in Troop #4 (and also both went to Philmont).
I eventually settled on physics as my major. At a job fair shortly before graduation in 1976 I interviewed with NCR adn IBM and the rest, as they say, is history.

The Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) assessment is a psychometric questionnaire designed to measure psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions. The questionnaire was created by Katharine Cook Briggs and Isabel Briggs Myers based on an extrapolation from the typological theories proposed by Carl Gustav Jung's 1921 book Psychological Types (English edition, 1923).
Jung had theorized that there are four principal psychological functions by which humans experience the world - sensation, intuition, feeling, and thinking - and that one of these four functions is dominant most of the time. Although very popular in businesses around the world, the MBTI is widely criticized by academics for its methodological weaknesses, poor statistical validity and low reliability.
