What Personal Capacities Should I Develop?

How to Improve the Way You Feel and Function


Do you wonder…
  • Which capacities can help me be successful?
  • What will aid me in being more self-confident?
  • Do I need to be more at ease, responsible, clear?
  • Which capacities will help me be more comfortable with myself?
Take this quiz to learn which Personal Capacities would be most useful for you.

This quiz covers all the Personal Capacities. I have created two quizzes for capacities (this one and the Interpersonal Capacities Quiz) instead of one, in order to limit the number of questions in each quiz.
Some of the questions refer to your "work." If you are retired or not currently employed, answer these questions in term of whatever tasks or projects you need to accomplish in your life.
 
  • Most people take between 4 and 8 minutes to complete the quiz.
  • Answer these questions to the best of your ability, without giving them a great deal of thought.
  • Write down your first reaction.
  • You must answer all the questions.
