How well do you know yourself? I love studying human behavior. Digging into what makes us tick and why we respond the way we do is an interesting hobby I have. Have you ever taken a personality test? Do you consider yourself self-aware? It’s Mindfulness Monday time.
Being aware of how we process and perceive life is critical in learning to resolve conflict with others while building lasting relationships with those we love and those with whom we share ours lives.
Who Am I?
My Love Language is Words of Affirmation. I’m either a two or a seven on the enneagram, I’m pretty sure I’m a two. According to the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator I’m an ENTJ, (Extraversion, Intuition, Thinking, Judgment). In the Four Temperaments I’m mostly Sanguine. After reading Gretchen Rubin’s The Four Tendencies I learned I’m a Questioner/Rebel.
What is the point? So many of us go through life not knowing why we act the way we do or why we respond to certain stimuli the way we do and so many of us never even question why.
My goal with the Mindfulness Monday Challenges is to challenge us all to look at our lives and take small actionable steps to experience life in a fuller more present way.Sam Jerry
Positive thinking will only get you so far. At some point we have to baby step our way towards the results we want for ourselves and our lives.
So, our challenge this week is to find and take a personality test of some sort or the Love Language quiz and begin to learn a little more about yourself. Then find a friend to take the test with or your spouse, partner or coworker. Be open minded. Think of it as a personal meet and greet. You may even discover new strengths and weaknesses about yourself.
I’d love to hear what test you decide to take and if you learned anything new.
Be you – Be Beautiful – Be Imperfect
