The prompt for week 1 is a recognized psychology test: Ask yourself 20 times “Who are you?” Each time you should give yourself a different answer, and if you can easily go beyond 20 entries then that is fine too. This prompt is about how YOU see YOU.
Unlike others who were able to compose their posts promptly I have taken days to reflect on mine (I am a thinker who always likes to ponder for a while) . I am a procrastinator so I also took a few days to decide whether I should share my answers because I am basically shy and find it a challenge to publish a post like this. I am following the lead of those who have been open and honest (Interesting that I didn't think of these in connection with myself) and shared their lists publicly. I have also posted this to the private blog I set up for the challenge.
I have restricted myself to 20 items as I do tend to ramble on, This has forced me to think long and hard about what I see as my most dominant attributes. What I have found interesting is that each of the descriptors I have labelled myself with would be an excellent topic for a further post about me.
