Considering this fresh new year I have ahead of me, I'm trying to figure out how to change something deeply rooted in my personality. So deeply rooted in fact, I doubt it is possible for me to change my ways at all. When I was training to get that fancy diploma I have in my "office" at work, the one that says I attended the company academy for Visual Merchandisers, I had to do a proffesional personality test, and exercises based on what type of personality I turned out to be. It was really fascinating to find myself beeing picked apart, and those parts actually made sense to me. It's been a good tool for me when trying to understand myself and my actions. It is also a pretty strong suggestion that I will never change. This is how I am, but it is not who I am. I never considered the difference before, but seeing it now, I can feel the truth of it.
Food for thought.
