Personality Testing with Alina

What is your personality type? Take my personality test to find out. In doing so, you will be taking the first step to healing through self analysis.

We are our own healers do not forget that! We are the light and the shadow and we often forget to love ourselves enough to be our own healers. I am a psychotherapist and trust me, I am not advocating not reaching out to healers as we do to doctors, mental health practitioners, massage therapists, spiritual guides, etc. …. It is important to learn from each other and help each other. However, in our society as well as in many other cultures on our planet, the idea of pampering, massaging, laughing with, and loving oneself is uncomfortable. We are wired to connect to all but we are also wired to connect to ourselves first. To Thine Own Self Be True.


So how come we feel uncomfortable with this self-love? I think it is because we are taught in our culture to “keep our hands off of ourselves!” “Don’t be selfish”; talking to yourself is a sign of craziness, etc. We are programmed to adapt to rules, regulations and be model student.

“We need to feel comfortable with our own inner diversity”

We feel comfortable being part of the crowd. After all, in the Emperor’s Clothes, we are made aware of our need to conform as a double-edged sword. Many of us suffer from an inferiority complex which may stem from our need to coexist and not be too self-centered. The issue is we have a tendency to go too far by ignoring ourselves. We are often comparing ourselves to others and wondering are we ok or just out there? We need to feel comfortable with being emotionally, intellectually and physically intimate with ourselves. We need to feel comfortable with our own inner diversity. We can be happy, sad, angry and enlightened at times. We need to feel comfortable with our authentic selves.

We are rich in outside diversity as well as in our own inner diversity. We must honor both the outside and inside, the dark and the light. In our angst to seek answers outside, we forget to look at our greatest treasure: our inner wisdom!

We must work on accepting our whole: the beauty and the beast, so to speak. To love our light and dark parts makes us whole.

In my practice, I work with the Personality Chart Program which is designed to have one identify your different parts such as the “kind and wise self”, “the nervous nelly”, etc. Looking at the different aspects of our personality and being honest with ourselves, helps us find out how to have the most rational parts of our personality rule our mind instead of the irrational parts. Check out my personality chart exercise above and write down your own version. If you want to go deeper into some aspects of your personality, appointments for new patients are available.

 It’s about wholeness and wellness.
