You might think that you know yourself well, but the truth is you often do not. You can learn more about yourself by asking yourself these questions.
What are you like?
You can describe yourself in a number of ways, but it’s best to use positive adjectives. They help others understand you and your strengths. If you are applying for a job, these will help you stand out from the crowd and get the attention of the hiring manager or recruiter.
Do you have any special talents or interests?
Do you enjoy working with people?
Do you love the outdoors?
If you have a passion for something, let the hiring manager know about it. It can help them decide whether the position is right for you.
Who knows you better?
You will often find that your friends and family do not know you as well as you think they do. This is because you may have hidden parts of yourself, such as your idiosyncrasies, from them.
Similarly, you might have told lies that you regretted later on. You may also have avoided certain activities or relationships because you were afraid of how they would make you feel.
