Self-discovery is a complicated topic. While much has been written on this, little is available at this point on what are the processes involved and how one commences on the road to self-discovery.
There is a big potential in each one of us, but it remains latent in many of us. Becoming the person that you want to be, requires that you do the inner work and self-identification. Self-understanding also provides a sound basis for understanding other people.
Most of us have had an opportunity to undergo a variety of psychological tests to determine our personality type. Yet, most of us don't feel we ever find our path, or fully understand our true authentic potential. Self-awareness is key to being fulfilled, accomplished and a happier person.
Tests are great, Yes, we agree, but in the US alone, there are about 2,500 personality tests on the market. We all have done it, whether our manager and colleagues recommended it, or as part of our MBA program, or just as a fun exercise in the middle of the night.
Regardless of what the test is, the main question remains - what do you do with this information?
Knowledge, understanding, and execution are the key. Knowing who you are and knowing what you were born to do and understanding your talents is only half the battle. Knowing how to apply this knowledge in business and in your personal life makes you extremely powerful.
Plus, any psychological test is measuring your state of being and the side of the personality that you are experiencing at the moment you take it, and given that a human being is multidimensional it is only a slice of yourself that you are measuring.
