Top Tips to Help You Learn More About You

You spend every minute with yourself, but you may not know yourself as well as you think. We tend to deceive ourselves, whether we fully realize it or not.

Unfortunately, if you don’t know yourself, it can be difficult to make progress. It is a wee bit like driving a car that doesn’t run well, but you refuse to look under the hood. There are issues under your hood that are in your way!!

Here are some top tips to help you learn more about you:

1. Take a personality test.

There are many of tests available online. Some are better than others, so be sure to do some research. The more sophisticated and useful tests aren’t free, but you are worth it!

2. List your values.

What matters to you? What do you stand for? Make a list of your values and put them in order of which are most important to you. Do you live your life according to your values?

  • Imagine you are an acquaintance of yours. How would you list your values based upon your words and actions?

3. Whom do you admire?

Who are the people you admire the most? Why do you admire them? What character traits and skills do you admire in others? What you admire in others says a lot about you.

4. Whom do you despise and why?

Just as informative are the people you strongly dislike. Why do you dislike them? What exactly about them is it that you dislike? Do you see any of those traits within yourself?

5. Ask your friends and family for input.

Your friends and family know more about you than you think. They often know a thing or two about you that you don’t know. Ask them for reflection and assistance in learning more about yourself. Be prepared to be surprised.

6. Imagine watching yourself.

Imagine observing yourself for a day. Imagine watching yourself eat. Imagine seeing yourself in your typical clothing. Note how you interact with others.

  • You don’t appear to others the way you think you do. This is a chance to see what everyone else sees. Perhaps you could consider setting up a video camera for a wee while!

7. If you could be granted one wish, what would it be?

Imagine being given a wish. What would you do with it? What can you understand from that?

  • Wishing for a million dollars is different from wishing for world peace. Wishing for a loving spouse is different from wishing for the ability to fly or for a new sports car.

  • Your answer will tell you a lot about what is most important to you.

8. What do you believe is the meaning of life?

If you had to sum up the meaning of life in one sentence, what would it be? How did you come to that decision?

9. What is your biggest regret?

What is the one thing you wish you could go back in time and do over? Why do you regret it so much? How would your life be different if you could redo a few decisions?

10. What makes you anxious?

What causes you stress? What makes you worry? Why do these things upset you? What does your anxiety cost you? How does it limit you? How would your life change if you felt much less anxiety?

Knowing yourself is a bit of a challenge. You have probably never seriously considered why you think and behave the way you do. We spend a lot of time contemplating people and situations outside of ourselves, but little (or not enough) time investigating ourselves.

If you knew yourself better, you could make a few adjustments and enjoy an easier and more successful life. You would also be in a better position to deal with old emotional wounds.

Be courageous and take a long, deep look at yourself. Getting to know yourself can feel challenging, but in the long run, you will recognize that it is well worth the effort.
