Human Beings Are of Four Types.
- A man who knows, and knows that he knows. This is the scholar, so take and patiently learn from him.
2. A man who knows, but does not know that he knows. This one has forgotten, so quietly remind him.
3. A man who does not know, and knows that he does not know. This one is a student, so teach him continuously because he will be a great scholar one day.
4. A man who does not know, and does not know that he does not know and isn’t even interested in knowing. This one is an idiot, so reject him.
Are you a social person?
To evaluate you as a person, one of the first things people notice is how friendly you are. After all, if you aren’t willing to spend time with them, they can’t know much about you and, as a result, can’t connect with you.
Some people are naturally more introverted than others and are happy to be alone. Some others absolutely can’t stand isolation and need to have lots of friends to be happy and satisfied with their life.
What about you? Do you tend to avoid others and spend a lot of time alone? Are you a social butterfly? Or perhaps you fall somewhere in between?
Are you an impulsive person?
Have you ever done something you wish you hadn’t? Think shopping sprees, overeating, firing off an offensive response, breaking a relationship that had a potential. If you have, you’ve fallen victim of your own impulsivity (or impulsiveness, if you prefer).
Sometimes acting on an impulse isn’t that bad. It could help you seize opportunities and make your life more fun. But for the most part, it gets us in trouble. If being impulsive is your default mode of operation, you may appear reckless and out of control.
Are you a leader, a follower or a tyrant?
Do you secretly enjoy the fact that other people are afraid of you? Is it important for you to convince everyone to accept your point of view even when it comes to small and insignificant matters? Do you enjoy being in the center of attention?
Or maybe you are a complete opposite of that: Do you prefer following orders and being told what to do? Or do you prefer to work alone without being told what to do or having anyone to lead?
How do you cope with life’s challenges?
Life can be tough at times and we all have our unique strategies of dealing with fear, anxiety and negative emotions whether we are aware of them or not. How do you personally cope with these challenges?
Do you lie to yourself? Do you deny the obvious? Do you overeat? Do you become aggressive and direct that aggression towards someone weaker than you? Do you come home and kick your cat because your boss is being mean to you? Seriously! You might be doing these things without realizing. Our defense mechanism test takes a while to take, but it’s one of the best tests on personality types.
