I think most of the people who decide to see this post are people who know that it is extremely important for us to know our strong points and weak points.
However, I still feel like talking a bit about it. I hope you won’t get angry for my nagging.
Making a right decision about where we want to spend our time to make our life successful is important.
If we try to reach our target by spending most of our time on our weak points, it will be the same like walking to our destination. It is much slower. Maybe, we will never reach the destination. Who knows? However, it is important for us to correct our weak points.
Then, how to understand our strong points and weak points better? I know that you are keen on knowing the methods. Please be cool down I will tell you what I learn from the books of one of my favorite writers, Kazuyo Katsuma.
First, you can try to analyze yourselves by using SWOT (as picture below), MBTI, and Strength Finder. MBTI? It is actually a test. You can get it by googling it. I think the result is quite useful, but I think it can only be used as a reference, as it is still just a test, no matter how prestigious it is. Then, what is Strength Finder? I have never tried it, as in order to do this test, we need to buy its book. I believe the book it is quite expensive. Therefore, I cannot give you any suggestion. Sorry! Sorry! Can you forgive me?
I think no matter how good the tests and SWOT are. We must still need to experience as many things as possible to understand ourselves better. While I was still very young I always thought that I liked studying very difficult subjects, as I thought I liked to study crazily. However, with the studying experiences in science class for 4 years and my working experiences, I found out that I would be very sad if I needed to study all days every day.
Wow! It takes time to experience many things. How to fasten the process? I think the two methods below can be used to fasten the process.
Try to collect other people’s opinion on us. Through this process, we will be able to discover our strong points and weak points. However, you should remember that other people’s opinion is just a way to judge ourselves but not principles, because other people’s opinion contains some casual and irresponsible information. You should also try your best to keep the ability to judge yourself objectively. For example, if we want to know our writing ability, we can write blogs, as if we write blogs we will know our writing quality by reading our readers’ comments.
The last by not least, write your own history. I think it is quite the same like writing diaries. If we write our history, we can discover our strong points and weak points by using our previous successful and failing experiences. Ha! Ha! I think you can prepare tissue first, before you want to recall your failing experiences.
I hope they do help to make you understand yourselves better.
At the end, can you give me a hand? I hope you can tell me my weak points and strong points on writing. You just tell me your opinion. I accept both good and bad comments. I think you can see my sincere face?
I do not have enough knowledge about copyright. Can anyone of you tell me if my writing contradicts copyright law.
