Your quest for self-understanding

Your existence has you asking questions.

You want to know: Who am I and why do I exist?

As a self-scientist you’re on a search to discover the truth of the matter so you question, hypothesize, wonder and investigate. It’s in your nature to think up ideas and test them out.

You want to know yourself and you want to do it your way. You want personal truths that explain who you are and why you exist. You don’t want other people putting their spin on who you are.

You’ve got to explain yourself and your reason for being in a way that gets it right for you.

You want to be yourself and live your life your way.


Self-information is personal data that primarily comes from your life experience.

It’s by living your life that you learn about your character.

You learn about the dynamic psychological drivers that propel you into action and your wants, needs, desires, ambitions and aspirations.

It’s by living your life that you learn about your likes, dislikes, natural inclinations, skills, talents and what you can and can’t do.

You learn about your thought and feeling world and the life-matters and social relations that cause you to think and feel the way you do.

And if you’ve paid close attention and assessed things realistically you should have acquired a reliable data-base of self-information. You should know yourself rather well. But do you?

Searching for identity

Your primary topic of interest is you. You’d like to know who you are, why you exist, why you’re here and where you’re going.

Your searching for identity and your search must explain your character, reason for being and life experience.

Your information market place offers scientific theories and religious beliefs but you don’t want explanations involving scientific razzle-dazzle, faith-based belief or weird, mystical superstitions.

In the very smart 21st-century the ‘who am I industry’ involves genealogy, genetic ancestry and ethnic identity. There’s mystery, research, some interesting ancestral insights, but very few benefits.

What have you really learned about yourself?

When you deep-think the information it’s superficial, shallow and not much help. Surely there has to be more.

You know that solving the me-mystery is likely to be a little complex, but you would just like an explanation that when understood makes sense to you.

That’s what your quest for self-understanding is all about.
