“Know Thyself” Socrates

Self awareness for Valentine’s Day?

Google reports an average of 400,000 searches each month for “personality tests”.  It appears that Americans are fascinated with what is called ‘personality science’.  Since Valentine’s Day is all about relationships and love, we would like to suggest that those who understand and know themselves have the most successful long term relationships, make good decisions, set appropriate goals and live more productive lives. Knowing myself means I have the ability to see how my emotions and thoughts influence how I behave and communicate.  Self-awareness is not always pleasant, but necessary for emotional growth and for understanding both our weaknesses and our strengths. It should be an ongoing, life long process.  There are excellent research findings, personality tests and evaluations for increased self-knowledge that are interesting to read and intriguing.

We got you warmed up to this topic with our article about The Enneagram. It is a theory that uses nine core human personality types. Each type has a comprehensive description of inner motivations, thoughts, beliefs, strengths and weaknesses. The Enneagram is an interesting and well-respected personality evaluation. You can find the test on the website.

You'll always know what we know & where we go. How fabulous is that?
