When you think about your personality, do you consider who you are around others or who you are when you’re alone? I think there is some overlap between our social and solitary selves, but we definitely are different depending on the context we are in. I like to think about who each of us are when we’re alone, because I think it’s our true personality at our core. For example, I am probably more of a non-serious, outgoing type when I socialize, but by myself I am more contemplative and calm.
I think it’s interesting to ask where our personality comes from. Is it from how others perceive us? Or is our personality formed by how we perceive ourselves? I think that in the end, our personality is formed within – no matter how others perceive us. We never really know what people think of us, so even when we are weighing their perceptions, we do it through our own lens. (Haha, that may be been a little too deep for me… and I wrote it)
How do you perceive yourself? I see myself as introverted, thoughtful, and kind… but also as logical and critical. I see myself as a risk taker, although a measured on. I see myself as creative and innovative, but also as disorganized and a bit scattered 🙂
