Trust-o-meter

Standard

I received about an hour ago an email from O, The Oprah Magazine, (I subscribe to their newsletter) and the feature articles are pretty interesting.

The article The Trust Test by Martha Beck lead me to answer several questions and below is the result and the corresponding interpretation (you can take the quiz yourself):

Your total score is 76.

55-79

You generally trust yourself with good results, but you have wobbly moments in new situations or when you’re interacting with people who impress or intimidate you. When you begin to lose trust in yourself, stop. Breathe. Ground yourself in the awareness that has served you so well, and remember that this same feeling can guide you through even the most unfamiliar circumstances.

I was struck by the “wobbly moments” described above. I couldn’t agree more with the interpretation. Just a realization: I think I know myself better now but I still have not done anything significant to reinforce that awareness.

    You really didn’t need this test—but you know that. You know pretty much everything you should to trust and be happy, and you reliably use that knowledge. Just remember another thing you know: When people tell you to act in opposition to your instincts, ignore them
