How To Find Yourself in 20 Minutes


Have been thinking a lot over the past couple days. I spent a few days in New York (and attended a live viewing of The Daily Show and The Colbert Report). I was mostly on my BlackBerry so I had more time to think instead of just “surfing” the web.

One of the things that’s fascinated me recently has been Personality Profiles – Jung, Myers-Briggs, anything that categorizes us by the way we think, feel and interact with the world.

To find out your profile its really simple:

  1. Take a Personality Quiz. There are many that are free and fairly accurate. Try Kisa.
  2. Do some basic research. Identify the basic elements of each component. Click here for a good guide.
  3. Find Yourself. (No Ashram necessary). Just Google your 4-letter combination. Personality Page is great for this.

It’s a fascinating experience and one that will help you find out who you are, your strengths, your weaknesses, and how you best interact with various other types. Not to mention all the fun in getting suggested interests, find celebrities and fictional characters with similar traits and – best of all – becoming a pseudo-psychologist trying to crack the code of everyone you meet.

As a matter of fact, once you get the hang of it you can become quite good at figuring people out quickly. Psychics use this to fool people into believing they know more about them then they really do. They are simply taking the major clues and tinkering with the more subtle ones.

All in all its fun. Try it!
