How Would You Describe Your Personality?

It’s interesting that you can’t necessarily sum up anyone’s personality – including your own – in just one word, usually. And you can’t really use fuzzy terms like “great” or “awful” to describe something as complex as a personality. There is so much more to a personality than that. It’s a big task, but describing a personality requires precision, and being able to define and describe it well.

What words would you use to describe your personality? You could run through the English language literally from A to Z with the range of words available for that. Would you call yourself “ambitious”? “Optimistic”? “Uninhibited”?

See? This is harder than you thought, I bet.

But hey, there’s help. Something called the Adjective Checklist can sort this out for you. Believe it or nor, this has over 300 adjectives for describing a personality. No, that’s not a typo. There are indeed 300 adjectives. I’m not expecting you to take it, so don’t worry. But I did include the Wikipedia link to it, if you’d like to find out more. There’s also good info on it at Mindgarden.com.

How would I describe my own personality? Curious…especially about personality. So I’m going to close out here and find another topic to look up for my next post. Stay tuned.
