Finding Yourself

What Kind of Cookie Will You Be Today?

As a self-proclaimed Chocolate Chip, I pondered the accuracy of the “cookie test”.  For as long as I can remember, I’ve identified with the idea that I’m a chocolate chip cookie. (You’re level headed and reliable. People can trust you to make the right choice, and you care about other people, so you’re generally well-liked.  You’re confident in your own skin and comfortable being yourself. You do what you want as long as you’re not being a jerk. Just like the chocolate chip cookie, you’re always invited to the party and don’t need much to be a certified crowd pleaser! Yum.)  I thought this rationale would aid me well in my personal and professional relations.  Because everyone likes me, they must be interested in me and what I have to say. For a career in sales, that confidence can make all the difference. In personal relationships,  it may be a bit delusional.

A friend once told me that I was more like an oatmeal raisin.: You’re traditional and even a bit old-fashioned. You’re not overly adventurous, and prefer to cozy up with a book in front of the fire instead of brave the elements for a good time.

I took multiple online tests with a different result every time!

People say “Be yourself” but what does that really mean?  Even more ambiguous is “Be true to yourself”.  Does this encompass honesty? Honestly, I feel there are days that each result describes me. Self-reflection is healthy but one result won’t apply to every season throughout your life.

You may have been the life of the party and are now ready for a good book. Does that mean you need to “find yourself”? Sounds like you already did.
