Let Proust introduce myself

I never really know how to introduce about myself. Our personality is usually the result of perceptions. You might thing you are one thing but others think you are something else. It’s complicated. The interesting thing about the Proust Questionnaire is that my answers have changed a bit since the first time, which was 5 years ago. The main reason is that I’ve learned more about myself, others and I am more educated.
