Why You Should Know Your Personality Labels
The field of therapy is the study of personality. To understand youreself and others better, invaluable tools to use are personality tests. The more we know about the labels for our personality, the better we can see these same traits in others. Because we each are unique, no one will have the exact same traits.
How we use our personality labels is our choice. How you feel about anything is your choice. No one can make you feel anything you don’t choose to feel.
On your road to self-discovery, remember to look for guidance among persons that are on their individual path of growth. If someone wants to tell you who to be, that person is not growing but is trying to avoid growth by “changing” you. Some people call this codependency.
