Voor het vak Redesign maakte wij een een test genaamd ‘personal dna’. Mijn resultaat staat hieronder. Later zal ik mijn mening over het resultaat delen, maar laten we voor nu de beroemde uitspraak we agree to disagree gebruiken. Waarom ik het niet eens ben lees je hier.

You are a curator

  • You are straightforward and real, down-to-earth, and have a healthy respect for order and stability. These attributes, complemented by your desire to be surrounded by things of beauty, make you a CURATOR.
  • You don’t feel the need to try everything new that comes along – you know what you like and what you want.
  • You are a no-nonsense person, not someone who falls for pretensions.
  • Being strongly grounded in the here-and-now, you are practical and realistic about yourself and your life.
  • You find comfort and calmness in your habits and routines.
  • Although others might not know this about you, you strongly appreciate aesthetic qualities, noticing whether something is well-designed and stylish.
  • You have a refined sense of taste, and you want your environments to reflect your preferred style.
  • There are times when you feel insecure and vulnerable, even though you know deep down that you are a good person.
  • You aren’t narcissistic – you allow yourself to be realistic about your positive and negative qualities.
  • You’re not afraid to let your emotions guide you, and you’re generally considerate of others’ feelings as well.
  • Never one to be found in chic boutiques or trendy clothing stores, you take an extremely practical approach to getting dressed.

If you want to be different:

  • It wouldn’t hurt to indulge your imagination and creativity sometimes. These are skills like any other, and develop with practice, so try to carve out some time for them in your life.
  • Try to quiet your inner feelings of doubt – you will be more successful if you can overcome these worries and focus on your many strengths, such as your responsible and honest nature.

How you relate to others: you are free-wheeling

  • Your charismatic nature, liveliness, and independence make you FREE-WHEELING.
  • You don’t mind being in the spotlight, preferring social gatherings to quiet nights at home.
  • You take a practical approach to people, not getting too involved in their feelings—or their business.
  • At the same time, your acceptance of others leads you to be understanding of their life circumstances, even if you don’t quite understand their emotional reactions to some things.
  • Although you have a wide circle of friends, you’re very discerning as to whom you can trust.
  • You’re not rigid in your beliefs about the world, and you don’t want to impose your perspective on others, but at the same time, you know that plenty of people don’t always act responsibly.
  • Engaging with others is a large part of how you live in the world, and most importantly, it plays a role in how you see yourself—you tend to learn a lot about yourself in situations where you are with other people.
  • You have an understanding of the complexities of situations, and you don’t judge others too hastily.

If you want to be different:

  • Your open-mindedness about the world gives you a great perspective on things, but your lack of trust in others limits how close you can get with them. Try opening up to people a bit more without losing your healthy skepticism.
  • While being the life of the party will occasionally come naturally to you, be sure to reserve time for yourself—see what you can learn by spending some time observing the world rather than just by diving in.
