Are you a Mentor and Tor-mentor?

The Evaluator - Army Evaluation & Counseling Guide

Have you ever had an individual come up to you and state they were going to Mentor you? What did you think when they said that to you. Typically in my mind I would say “How can you mentor me, I pick my mentors and usually they don’t even know they are my mentor”! I realize the individual making this statement is trying to help. They can coach me, train me, and teach me, but generally, usually, typically, they are not mentoring me. In some cases I have considered it tormentoring because the information shared was usually not what I would consider valuable.
