How Do You Describe Yourself?

We all have positive qualities, but often don’t take time to identify them. This activity is a simple way of becoming aware of your qualities. You can even use some of them in your cover letters and interviews.

Instructions: Circle the words that relate to you. Think about how you see yourself, your character, intellect, and outlook on life. Circle as many words as you want. Be as honest and objective as possible. You can even ask people who know you well to do this activity!
