Know Thyself

To know yourself is to know yourself physically and to know yourself mentally. To know yourself is to understand your abilities and to understand your vulnerabilities and your limitations. To know yourself is to know yourself spiritually. A good way to know yourself is to know others.

How much knowledge and information would you need to truly and accurately understand yourself? What would you measure and how would you test yourself?

Temet Nosce -  Know Thyself

Nosce te ipsum." The Suda, a 10th-century encyclopedia of Greek knowledge, says: "the proverb is applied to those whose boasts exceed what they are", and that "know thyself" is a warning to pay no attention to the opinion of the multitude.

"Know thyself and thou shall know all the mysteries of the gods and of the universe", which is a lot easier said than done.

The better people understand themselves, the more easily they can put themselves in other people’s shoes.
