Self-Assessment Tests and College

When I was in college, I wanted to be involved in things that would change the world.

-Elon Musk

And after college, that’s exactly what the Tesla founder did. Recently, I took a self -assessment. This test was designed to judge eight inner strengths, which are key in shaping how an individual experiences life. These eight strengths are:

  1. Accepting Personal Responsibility
  2. Discovering Self-Motivation
  3. Mastering Self-Management
  4. Employing Interdependence
  5. Gaining Self-Awareness
  6. Adopting Life Long Learning
  7. Developing Emotional Intelligence
  8. Believing in Yourself

From taking the assessment, as expected, I found that my scores were in the middle category, or “your choices will sometimes keep you on course.” Like I said, this is the outcome I expected. So why take the test? Tests like these are important to take from time to time to make sure the inner compass is still pointing in a direction you want. Especially as someone in college. College age is traditionally where people decide what direction they want their life to take. We can’t all invent Tesla and Space X like Elon Musk, but we can all do something to improve our lives and the lives of those around us. So I’m glad I took this Self-Assessment test, and I would recommend you do so as well.
