Place a check mark next to those that are most important to you. Write a brief statement that describe why these top ideas are an essential part of your self-perception.
(b). Next, compare the remaining adjectives or nouns from each list. These represent your oars, your perception of changes that have occurred in your self-perception over time or that you expect to change over time.

In your description, pay particular attention to which themes have changed from 5 to 10 years ago and which you expect to change over the next 5 to 10 years.
