Learning about Others with EQ
Hello World, I’m so excited to introduce myself and tell you about the personality trait I represent. My name is EQ and I represent EQUALITY.
Equality and all that it adds to your personality are vital for developing a person of good character. Acceptance, morality, and justice are just a few of the pleasing qualities that equality encompasses which helps create a fair-minded, accepting, non-judgmental, free- thinking and progressive person; a person like me, EQ. No doubt I’m listing qualities that your personality already has. They’re personality traits that make us better people.
For instance, just consider one of the above qualities, acceptance, take it from me acceptance is an unbelievable trait that every person should want. The good news, all of the qualities that equality stands for are obtainable to anyone with the right outlook and attitude.
Equality was the trait that motivated me to learn all that was different from me including; different people, cultures, religions, races, or anything else that is different from what I know. Learning new and different characteristics of individuals and their worlds added so much to my life. You can’t imagine all the fascinating things I discovered. That’s why I opened my letter to you with “Hello World,” because that is what Equality does; it encourages you to see the world and the people in it with greater appreciation and understanding. Words like; ordinary, narrow-minded, racist or, bigoted would never describe ME, and hopefully never YOU.
All of the personality traits that the other five ItsIts represent are equal to mine (even though I think mine is special). In fact, it takes all of the personality traits together to develop a well- rounded person.
Here are just a few positive characteristics that equality brought into my life and can bring into yours:
1. Willingness to be open to new; different cultures, religions, races, tradition or anything else different from who I am and what I know and understand 2. A belief that everyone is of equal value 3. Fair Minded 4. Appreciating the uniqueness of others 5. Respecting difference 6. Learning about other people, other places and cultures, other ideas and, other opinions 7. Awareness and sensitivity to the environment
Representing equality also means I have a curious mind. Having a curious mind is over-the- top exciting. It certainly has made my life more adventurous. Never leaving your comfort
zone limits your willingness to learn; making for a dull and often ignorant person. Not to mention how it hinders your character.
Maybe now you can understand why I say “HELLO WORLD.” Equality stretched my boundaries and furnished me with a bigger picture of everything. It’s fantastic! I know you haven’t met Driver yet, but I promise you, the personality trait that Driver represents will blow you away.
So, friends, I beg you, don’t stay comfortable standing on the sidelines of life, learn what is great about “different.” Reach out and enjoy what you haven’t yet learned. Equality can be your best friend.
