I’ve always been obsessed with systems and structures that give me insight into my personal traits, tendencies and behavior as a human. Whether it’s what being born in the Year of the Rat tells me about my personality, which Zodiac signs I’d have the best relationship with being a Saggitarius, what ice cream flavor a buzz feed quiz says I would be, or what careers I’d work best in based on my ENFP personality type. Even the ridiculous “how many children you’ll have based on the amount of wrinkle lines on the side of your hand” shit has always fascinated me and I find myself engrossed in reading paragraphs about my personality strengths and weaknesses and such. To some people who think zodiac and horoscope stuff is just a load of crap and don’t believe a quiz can tell them how best they can learn in a classroom, I might sound like a wacko. But while I’m not a psychologist or psychiatrist or fortune teller or have any sort of sixth sense, I like to think that two of my major strengths are being both interpersonal and intrapersonal. Most people cling to either one, but I feel that I cling to both. I have a strong sense of self and my strong intuition allows me to read others easily and adapt to situations in order to communicate with people in the most appropriate way I can think possible in order to make them happy and myself happy and reinforce relationships.
So why am I blogging about this? Because I truly feel that developing interpersonal and intrapersonal intelligence will help anybody become 1. Happier with themselves 2. Develop a stronger understanding of themselves 3. Be able to form a more genuine, unique and honest identity that they can share with the world. 4. Strengthen current and future relationships of all kinds 5. Better understand everyone around them and therefore be adaptable and flexible in dynamic situations 6. Be more successful in everything they do 7. Have more fun and find yourself doing more things that make you happy
So how can somebody strengthen these intelligences? I think that taking some of these quizzes or reading about yourself based on certain personal facts can give you an awesome start into understanding yourself and finding things that will make you happy and successful. So start with THESE!!!!!!!!!!
P.S. If you are a Saggitarius, born in the year of the Rat, an ENFP personality type (but on the border of P and J) , strongest in the musical, interpersonal and intrapersonal intelligences and mostly an auditory learner, you are EXACTLY like me!!! J
