Without fail, I’m usually asked to describe myself in a word. A single word, as if that’s even possible. "Fine," they say, "describe yourself in five words." I need to roll up my sleeves and get this one down because I know it’ll spring up soon enough. If forced, which five words would you use to describe yourself? Answer. Then ask those closest to you (a parent, a lover, a sibling, a friend or two) to describe YOU using only five words, and do the same for them. Is there any parity? Is there a gap between how you see yourself and how the world around you does? If so, what have you learned from it?
It sounds like one of those quizzes in Cosmo, except there’s no mention of a martini or an erogenous zone. Still, I think it’s Tuesday fun. Please report your findings here as they roll in. Commit to your five words first. Post them. Then return to post what others said and how you feel about it.
