As a trainer, self-awareness about ourselves; and each person in the audience can be the ideal. I cannot overemphasize the importance of building a rapport in the classroom ; or in any interpersonal context. For those who want to improve their communications, lets get down to the basics and check again to see that we don’t miss the following.
In my Communications trainings, I also use this quiz to understand current communication styles and concerns: (a few questions in each post; with Best Answers and Tips in the next post):

Another vocab quiz
Suffixes and Prefixes
A suffix is a group of letters that goes at the end of a word to change the part of speech.
For example, “to suit” means “to be proper” and is a verb. By adding the suffix able, we make suitable, which is the adjective form.
A prefix is a group of letters that goes at the beginning of a word to change the meaning.
For example, when we add un to suitable, we make unsuitable which means “not proper”.
This is an interesting quiz I found on WordPress
We all have Facebook friends with certain tells in their choice of status updates. There are the unabashedly peppy, the unrelenting complainers and the 800-word posters. To test how well you can identify your Facebook friends by these clues, we’ve built a simple quiz: This app will randomly select status updates from your recent newsfeed and present you with five possible authors for each one. (Note: This will not work for all users due to differences in privacy settings. If you’re asked for your password, you’ll be logging into Facebook. TIME is not recording or storing your password.)
Researchsuggests that a lot of our offline personality can shine through on Facebook, even if most of us complain about our friends’ behavior online. (And don’t delay. Facebook will soon be shutting down the service that lets us make apps like this one or the classic “How Much Time…

Another way to look at developing yourself, and growing is Multiple Intelligences. Each one of us has multiple strengths:
December is a good time to look back, introspect and plan ahead. I like to discover my strengths and work on it. I would say, my strengths are writing, sharing, helping kids and others discover their dreams, their hidden plans and make them come true in a structured, step-by-step manner. I am a great believer in setting goals- both long-term and short-term. Thats how we can build focus and not get distracted.
I know many friends(esp. at- home mothers) who feel that its no use planning, because it will never come true. Also it takes a lot of reflection, in-depth planning, syching with other family members and so on. No time for that. To them, I’ll say it will all be worth your while because slow and STEADY is the only way we can live our values and make our goals come true. I will not yet say DREAMS. We’ll come to that in a few months.
One way to begin this journey is to take a personality test. Lets take any one of these free tests (no need to take an expensive For Fee test):
Simplifying the Four dimensions of personality:
- Extraversion/Introversion: this dimension describes our approach to managing our energy levels
- Sensing/Intuition: this dimension describes our style of thinking about facts and ideas
- Thinking/Feeling: this dimension describes our orientation to personal values, biases, beliefs and other subjective inclination.
- Judging/Perceiving dimension describes our approach to goals and time management or how we make desicions or the big picture of life.
The goal of the personality test is to help us find our personality type, out of sixteen possibilities, which best reflects our attitudes and behavior.
Top questions in my mind:
1. Can a quiz give an objective view of our personality, when we are not consistent from day to day?
2. Can the results help us find ourselves and guide us to remain our authentic self or our true self?
3. Is this a valid way to set our goals? There are so many Personality Tests. Have you taken any?
