Blimey, I’m on fire with my blogging today! I received an email asking me to complete an artist’s questionnaire online, which is funny because I am collaborating with my lovely friend Samuel Rogers in an interview. Coming soon!
So this website is: Whohub and I have started answering questions, you can see my own little page here: Lucy Barfoot at Whohub. How I love free publicity! It’s interesting reading other peoples answers too
Also, I came across Authentic Happiness which has lots of tests to “Develop insights into yourself and the world around you through these scientifically tested questionnaires, surveys, and scales.” There are so many to do. You have to create an account to take part, but this allows you to keep a lot of the results, to easily look back on.
Tests which measure: Overall Happiness, Depression Symptoms, Current Happiness, 24 Character Strengths, Appreciation about the Past, Character Strength of Perseverence, Optimism About the Future, Forgiveness. It’s so interesting to know these things, from a scientific point of view. Here are my results for the character strengths. I’m flattered!
Top Strength: Perspective (wisdom): Although you may not think of yourself as wise, your friends hold this view of you. They value your perspective on matters and turn to you for advice. You have a way of looking at the world that makes sense to others and to yourself.
Appreciation of beauty and excellence: You notice and appreciate beauty, excellence, and/or skilled performance in all domains of life, from nature to art to mathematics to science to everyday experience.
Capacity to love and be loved: You value close relations with others, in particular those in which sharing and caring are reciprocated. The people to whom you feel most close are the same people who feel most close to you.
Humor and playfulness: You like to laugh and tease. Bringing smiles to other people is important to you. You try to see the light side of all situations.
Kindness and generosity: You are kind and generous to others, and you are never too busy to do a favor. You enjoy doing good deeds for others, even if you do not know them well.
