Some questions that will help you get to know yourself

If you answer honestly, you will go through a process that may be painful, but surely uplifting.

As we are

Knowing yourself is not an easy task, in fact, perhaps one of the most difficult issues of all. Knowing what you are and what you want and what you expect from life is the first step on the path of happiness. It seems a little superficial sentence, but I swear I'm convinced of what I'm telling you. Atenti: it is important that they respond at a time when they are alone and relaxed (so that they can devote the time and attention they deserve) and if they can do it in writing — by hand, no compu or phone — better (it is proven that writing in pencil helps the brain concentrate on the area that dominates the language, which will help to arrive at more concrete and in-depth responses). Now, let's get started.

Do you prefer to be a misunderstood and worried genius or a social and cheerful fool?

It is true that it is formulated in an extreme way, no one is neither one nor the other, but when it comes to enjoying the recognition of others we often force ourselves to levels that hurt us. How far do you demand yourself? Do you feel good in that position?

What makes you you you?

An almost rhetorical question. Socratic mayeutics was practically based on this little trick. I do not want to add anything, the question itself is clear and forceful. All I can say is, did your answer make you happy? Or are there more things you'd like to change? If so, knowing them is having half the battle won.

Would you like to be a friend of yours?

Somehow it is a question similar to the previous one, but in this case more oriented to how you are out, with those around you and with the world. Where it says “friend” you can think “couple” or “son” or “coworker”. If you're honest with the answer, it can be a life-changing question.

What is the reason you are most grateful to life?

In addition to putting in perspective the importance of being a grateful person (motives sure you have), the idea of identifying them is that you see if you are able to reproduce them and thus have every day a new reason to be aware of everything beautiful that happens to you.

If you were given a choice: do you prefer not to remember what happened or not to be able to generate new memories?

The question is formulated in a somewhat poetic way, but if we go to the bone it is one of the most important questions of life: is the best already over or the best is yet to come? I do not want to get into your answers, but optimism is the basis of joy. Don't lie. Knowing yourself can be a painful process, but from which you are sure to get better than you entered.
