It’s the end of the year and many people have started rolling out their New Year Resolutions and getting ready to update “New year, New me” on their social media pages. The bitter truth is, if you don’t truly know who you are, understand your personality style and take deliberate actions towards your goals, you will be the “new you”‘ that you were 5 years ago in 2016.
Several people have asked, “Why Should I be interested in knowing myself and My Personality Style?”

HERE ARE REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD KNOW YOUR PERSONALITY
1) You accept people’s differences and are able to live with and work better with other people. You are able to understand why certain people behave in certain ways and make decisions the way they do.
2) It gives you an assurance that you’re okay and not crazy. Some people can’t function in crowded rooms and loud music; however that is where and how others function the best. Some like quiet,tranquil and peaceful environments, while it drives other nuts.
3) You can manage roles and responsibilities better and more effectively. Understanding what makes you tick is key to optimization. Why do you do what you do? what are your critical personality needs? How do you like to organize things such that you can be most effective during the day? What makes you feel at your best and what makes you feel balanced and most in tune with yourself? What role, career and business best suits you? How can you best manage your energy?.
