There is no greater gift than truly knowing ourselves. The world is full of people:

  • who believe they are very decisive, but 30 minutes cannot decide which pair of shoes to buy;
  • who consider themselves treated unfairly, but never hesitate to put the blame on a colleague;
  • who think they deserve to get much more, although the results achieved by them are insignificant. .introvert, extrovert, test

But enough about others. Do we really know ourselves?  How often do we look into the "mirror" in search of our real Me?

Something easy, "... mirror, mirror, tell me" what person am I?
