We all behave in a certain way based on the personality we have at any moment. Although most people have unconsciously shaped their personas, some have decided to choose them consciously. Before you can have this power, the first step is to find your personality.
Why start with your personality
Whenever you perform a task, you always have some identifications, either you are aware of them or not. Whether you identify with your family, nation, or universe, you still have some identity in place.
Getting to know your identity is the first step to changing it. You may wonder, “why to change my identity?”. It is a natural question to ask. You like your identity, and hence you have shaped it, even unconsciously at times.
However, note that whatever you do stems from your identity. You cannot do specific tasks unless you have the identity that supports them. In short, the more enhanced your identity is, the more things you can do. As a result, if you want to make a difference in the world or want to grow, then changing your identity is a necessary condition.
And the first step to changing something is understanding where you are right now. In short, your identity mainly comes from your personality. Changing your persona enables you to shift your identity to something greater. As a result, this change empowers you to make a bigger and more positive impact on the world and your life.
How to find your personality
No magic button will show your personality type and traits. There is work to be done here. If you want to make a lasting change and grow as a person, prepare to devote some committed time to this.
Fortunately, there is no one perfect way to find your personality. At the same time, there are specific actions that you can take that can help you with the task at hand. Speaking from personal experience, it can help if you spend some time alone at a place you have never visited before. And of course, this visit does not include using any mobile device or book.
“So what to do when I am alone and cannot check my phone or read my favorite book?”. The answer is observing your behavior at the present moment and in the past. Attempt to answer questions such as “What are my strengths, needs, weaknesses, desires, fears, or skills”. Don’t forget to write them down. Taking notes and often getting back to them can help immensely.
If you want to make this task more interactive, find a group of people, preferably strangers, and do the activity together. There are various workshops where strangers get together and try to understand each others’ personalities. Whether you have the privilege to attend one or not, remember that spending time alone is necessary if you want to see progress on this task.
