How big is your ego, do you tend to say I a lot, and find yourself boring others while talking about yourself? Well of course not, everything you do and are is exciting, right?
There are a couple of short quizzes you can do online to do an ego check on yourself. The first one I did was The Ego Meter, it’s only about 10 questions and it aligns you up with some examples like Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Hemingway and Kenya West. Mine came up as a mixture between Mother Teresa and Gandhi, called Mondhi. It explains that wherever there are people in trouble or obstacles that need overcoming, you’re there. White hats were invented for personalities like this. There is, however, a line between a superhero and goody two-shoes, so put down the weight of the world every once in a while.
The other quiz, How Big Is Your Ego/confidence, was pretty basic and the questions more geared toward school age kids, but I did score as being normal, that I have the right level of self-esteem. I don’t know if that’s good or bad.
I think the biggest test to know if your ego isn’t matching social norms is to think, do I care more about myself than others. Do I talk down to people, or do I lift them up? If you think you’re better than others, then maybe it’s time to check your ego in at the door, and lose the ticket to get it back.
