Your mom may describe you as strong but careless, while Insta followers see that minimalist side of you. Your BFFS only know a party animal, the moody self-loather and an obnoxious drunk. The boss says you’re focused yet creative, while #bae says you’re spontaneously sexy. No wonder you’re so conflicted all the time.
Which is the “real” you ?
Lifestyle and relationship consultant Alina Berdichevsky explained, “Over the course of our lives, different situations will bring our different personalities in us. Some are subtle and some more dramatic.” The good news? All of this craziness helps us manage our lives more effectively. Alina said: “While there are different dimensions to a personality, they’re all still you and they help us survive in the world.” So while we’re all still on a journey of self-discovery, get these six personalities clicking for you.
