comment Use of different tenses to express present fact on past action
Demonstrating insight would be the same as to demonstrating wisdom or demonstrating the ability to process knowledge well. It is a legitimate sentence and does make sense. It does, however, sound like a filler sentence because it's so vague and doesn't really say anything significant. No employer will say, "Oh wow! He demonstrates insight? That's incredible! I can't remember that last time someone demonstrated insight."

Good point, it isn't. It is more descriptive though. I'll make note of that.

comment Is there a word to describe the situation where you call someone and hang up so they call you back?
@JoseK A missed call describes the situation where someone calls you and you don't answer. The ping or beep is a subset of missed calls where the intent is to create a missed call so they call you back. Missed call itself doesn't describe the situation by the OP.

@Wayne Very relevant and interesting article! They defined the term as 'beeping', perhaps that is the norm?

It may be useful depending on the reason the OP asked the question. In the event where the OP's direct question is unanswerable this may be satisfactory.
