Book Recommendation

I love taking surveys that help illuminate aspects of your personality. Now that I'm in my 30s, I've moved away from the quizzes in Seventeen magazine and instead gravitate toward things like the Myers-Briggs.

That's why I'm excited about a book that my best friend gave Matt for Christmas that's based on decades of research: StrengthsFinder 2.0. The book comes with a code to take a free assessment online. I took my assessment already, and apparently my strengths are:
  1. Futuristic
  2. Significance
  3. Focus
  4. Responsibility
  5. Strategic

The book contains information about how I can better interact with other people, as well as information about how others can better interact with me. Once Matt takes his quiz, I hope we get some good insight into ways to continue to strengthen our relationship. I'm excited!

My fiance and I are doing marriage preparation. It's so much fun learning about each other. I've learned so much about my partner that I never knew. He's learned a lot about me. Just recently we had to answer 156 questions about each other! It was fascinating to go over our answers!

Jodi, you are so, so smart. It can be really hard to set aside time for that kind of work during the craziness of wedding planning and yet being prepared for marriage (more than being prepared for the wedding) is the point! Thank you for the reminder.
