Self Awareness Assessment

Test your self awareness, your identity, and your direction in life

How well do you know who you really are – your deep values, priorities, interests, fears, beliefs, and hopes?  It takes a good deal of work to realize your essence and personal meaning.  How far along in this process are you?  Many of us think we really know ourselves and this may be true to greater or lesser extents.

See how well you really know yourself with this assessment.  This questionnaire will help you to realize how well you know yourself and where you are heading in life.  The results will provide you with a clear indication of how far along the process of self knowledge and personal goals you currently are.

Please complete ALL items.  Rate each item on a scale of 1-5, where 1 is less true and 5 is more true.  Select the answer that best represents your feelings, thoughts, and behaviors.  Try to answer as openly and honestly as possible.  Choose how true each statement is for you.
