A truth about me: I am introspective to the max, and maybe it’s considered narcissistic by some but I love learning more about who I am at my core. I believe a thousand percent in self-improvement and that in order to be and do better, I must challenge myself to think deeply about what makes me tick. I’ll take any personality quiz and read any horoscope, but I’ve found something even more detailed and true: The Secret Language Name.
The Secret Language Name is “a distillation of personality traits found during a 40-year empirical study of more than 20,000 people, organized by birthday.” It’s easy to use; visit URL HERE and scroll to your birthday (date, month, year) to generate your report. A Secret Language Name reveals a person’s natural identity. For example, Abe Lincoln was an “Intentional Unifier” and Mother Theresa was an “Innocent Supportive Partner.”
Wanna know what I am?
I’m a “Compassionate Mortal Mirror.”
Meaning, I “hold up a mirror to the human condition…. Themes of reflection and revelation run through the lives of August 14 people.” Yup, it’s true; refer to the first paragraph of this post!
More that I believe to be true:
August 14 people who are not commentators but embodiers of the human condition very much wear their heart on their sleeve. They cannot really hide their faults or their problems. But though their struggles are painfully evident, they are perhaps representative of what many others are experiencing.
This reminds me so much of my experience as an advocate of mental health, particularly maternal mental health, after my experience with postpartum depression and anxiety.
The SNL also provides helpful advice for daily life:
Apply your understanding of the human condition to your own life; turn a mirror to yourself.
Evaluate your personal processes and monitor them regularly.
Do not lose your spontaneity but moderate it.
You can change yourself if you want to.
The SNL then breaks down the character traits of individuals born the same week as me, the Week of Leadership. The descriptor I related to most was that “action comes naturally to these dynamic individuals. They are also good planners, well capable of organizing an effective plan of attack and seeing it through.” This is one of the traits I’m most proud of about myself: I am ambitious, always figuring out the next move, and I always follow through after creating a solid plan–which is also a flaw of mine, if I’m being honest, because sometimes I follow through when my heart’s just not in it.
I looked at Jackson’s Secret Language, too. The Secret Language Name for this date, and for those born during it, is… “Electric Royal Command.” Pretty cool phrase, right? According to the data, Jax is a born leader (words a momma loves hearing), who will focus on the big show.
If you’re into personality tests, horoscopes, and life advice (like I am), I encourage you to find your Secret Language Name by visiting http://clvr.li/SLNME. You can even check your friends’ names and read about who they are deep inside. You’ll learn something new, trust me.
