|Interview with our colleague Peter Röckinger, Project Engineer, at Pitzek GMP Consulting with an unusual hobby: “Membership in the pranksters’ guild”.
Dear Peter, why did you decide to join a jesters’ or rogues’ guild?
Peter Röckinger (following PR): I was born in Staufen, my family has always had a strong connection with the Guild, my grandfather was a very active member, my great-grandfather was a founding member and my mother is such a carnival enthusiast that she used to carry me in her pram. There I was apparently already the born prankster ;-).
“A rogue who thinks evil of it” is what you say when you want to comment on an outwardly ambiguous action that allows for a very delicate interpretation. But to think like that, you have to be a “rogue”. In the past, active pranksters or court jesters had the freedom of the fool, which made it possible to criticise existing conditions with impunity. Would you call yourself a real prankster or jester in the sense of the freedom of the jester?
The prankster is a joker with a mischievous streak. Does that apply to you?
Originally, Schelm comes from the Old High German “Skelmo”, meaning death. Later, the Schelm even became an epithet for battle-hardened knights. Do you live the life of a battle-hardened knight? If so, what was your greatest knightly deed?
Back to the Middle Ages, here the rogue originally comes from the time of fools, rogues or fools. In the Middle Ages, a jester or rogue was the name given to a person who was supposed to provide entertainment and amusement as a joker and who was conspicuously dressed..
In the game of chess, the fool (“Fou”) has the role of the bishop. At the same time, he can only be captured if he is threatened by two parties at the same time, and the piece that captures him leaves the board together with him.
The Fool emerged as a character who has no fixed place in the estates order or society, who feels no obligation to any norms and falls out of the system in his human givenness.
Which brings us back to Pitzek GMP Consulting. Somehow our company is also out of the so-called frame. We are all individual and special GMP heroes and heroines who stand a bit “out of the box” in this rather conservative industry and also live it..
PR: I can definitely say that everyone can be what they want to be and that individuality is encouraged. This means that we really do stand out in the industry with a slightly different and younger look.
Gut, we come back to the fool and a completely different meaning.
For me personally, this combination of light-heartedness and mindfulness is very inspiring, because it can be the key to pure joy of life. This joie de vivre and the necessary mindfulness are attributes that are lived in the company Pitzek GMP Consulting.Can you subscribe?
May you say something in conclusion?
