It’s so important to be self aware, and one of the best ways to do that is to have a solid understanding of your strengths and weaknesses.
Knowing what you’re good at, where you may have a blindspot, and how you prefer to communicate and operate makes life so much easier across the board. You can take on more of what you enjoy and do well at work while delegating some of the things you don’t love or aren’t great at. You’ll know when to take a breath before sending that nasty email or text message, and when to be assertive and confident. Most importantly, you’ll have a better idea of what you need in a day to feel fulfilled, happy, and whole – which, obviously, we’re all about here at Mettacool.
There are so many great personality type quizzes out there, but one of our favorites is the Enneagram of Personality, a geometrically interconnected typology of nine personality types. The idea is that there are connections between each type, so while you may really identify as one specific type, you most likely also have several characteristics from other types, often called “wings”.
Our girl Jenna Kutcher just dedicated an entire episode of her podcast, The Goal Digger, to her Enneagram obsession. She, like both our founders, is a type 3. Check out what Jenna has to say about the Enneagram on her blog, and listen to Episode 237 on iTunes or in your podcast app!
