One of my favorite things about having a baby in the house is watching a new personality emerge. Will he be shy or outgoing? Athletic or intellectual? What personality traits will he get from his father? Will he be like me?
In a way I have always loved uncovering pieces of people's personalities, even my own. I love taking those quizes in magazines that promise to break down your personality traits and tell you how to do everything better. Mostly I like seeing if who I think I am matches up with the results.
I once had a friend do a handwriting analysis and I was pretty impressed with the results. One of the conclusions was that I was a procrastinator, determined by the fact that I would go back and cross my 't's after I had finished writing the entire sentence. I do like to wait until the last minute to get things done. I am sure my husband would like me to find a test that would explain why I won't ever pick out a restaurant, but will veto all of his ideas.
In college, during one of my education courses, we studied personality types and how they corresponded with learning in a classroom. What I took away from that study was that all personality types have positive and negative aspects to them. So we should never try to hide who we really are, we should just search out the positive in our personalities and use them to help us succeed.
With the start of a new year, it is always a good time to take a little introspective look at who we are and what we are doing. ArchetypeMe offers a fun challenge to do just that.
