Beloved of the Universe,
How are you all doing this crisp morning? I hope you are well, as always if your day and night had passed with emotional challenges – our wishes are that at least one person was there to hold your hand, pass a tissue and give you a hug.
We are smack bang back with the psychology and the relevance of knowing thy self. As I have mentioned to you yesterday, I will be sharing information about myself, besides pages from my book called life, to give you an understanding of whom you are speaking with.
I asked the question yesterday, of where you would place me – web readers- a challenge for you as well.
Amidst all that is going on in our illusion called life, take the couple of minutes with coffee or tea and have a good read.
When interacting with the world, you brain prefers the path it knows. If you can attend the reunion of your high school class, don’t miss it. It is an interesting experience.
In front of you stand stands a person who claims to be your old friend “Mike”, whom you haven’t seen for over 25 years. The last time you saw Mike, he was a skinny kid with messy hair, wearing floppy sneakers. But now he is not skinny, has very little hair, and is wearing a tie. However, within ten minutes of talking, you have a strange feeling that you are back with that same guy from age 16… His voice sounds the same, he still has an eye for detail, still has the same way of scratching his elbow while talking, and when it is his turn to speak in front of the group, he still is the funniest guy in the room.
Sure, we change with time. But the core part of our character stays the same, no matter where our lives takes us. Just like how we are born with a tendency to left-or-right-handed, there are guiding parts of our personalities that are likely to influence us and stay over time.
Do you not think that knowing your personality is key, as this affects all aspects of your life? Do you know how many people go through what is called a mid-life-crises? Or wake up one day and not know who the hell they are? If you are one of the unfortunate people going through this, there is a reason.
Personality researchers have found that when life’s challenges and demand FORCE a person to PLAY a role that doesn’t suit his or her personality, that person’s immune system, enthusiasm and motivation wear down the significantly over time. Such situations cause us to not only view life in a negative capacity, but also to feel tired all the time, to think less clearly, and to feel less satisfied in all other aspects of life.
When for example, a person who is naturally an extrovert is asked to do a job where he or she works in solitude for the majority of the day, for several weeks in a row, that person’s productivity and enthusiasm towards life will decrease.
We can flip the coin and say, when one that portray natural introvert is asked to continually think OUT LOUD, direct groups, and have limited quiet time for many weeks in a row, his or her ability to function and happiness will also decrease drastically. Why do you think we are unhappy most times in jobs we do not have any passion…. Simply because the environment doesn’t suit your personality.
Again, a challenge – what am I – Introvert or extrovert? And if you have any knowledge on borderlines for personalities – where does mine lie with your assumption?
Let us think for second – the above does not only affect our job performance, it carries over to all areas of our lives. For this reason, in any of life’s tasks – whether it be our “job” tasks, daily activities, or interactions with friends or partners – it is very important that we seek out opportunities that fit our natural strengths, predisposition and preferred brain pathways.
Each of us carry strengths and weaknesses. Even the most successful person out there. It may well be that they have built towards magnifying the strengths and paying close attention to the weaknesses. Knowing this about yourself, gives an upper hand toward any situation you may find yourself in.
The next couple of days I will journey with you in explaining the importance of the personality. It is a fascinating subject from a psychological perspective. It gives the person a greater understanding of the Higher Self.
I shall leave you all today, in asking. On a scale from 0-100%, where will you place me between the scales of extrovert, or introvert? His will be the first in 8 personality summary reports of little ol’ me, myself and I.
Have a blessed, beautiful day, enjoy the new moon energies – plant those wishes for the next “from now, until it is now again”.
