Marcel Proust  

Discover your inner Self

Marcel Proust answered this questionnaire in the late 19th century, to unearth his true personality, wishes and aspirations, and it's still so relevant today. The U.S version of Vanity Fair has as its last article,the questionnaire completed by a famous person. It's always revealing and diverse and even funny sometimes!!

The other day I read about someone that has done the qustionaire for the last 5 years, and every year her answers differ slightly. It's not a personality change but perhaps we mature  (hopefully!) and our responses reflect those changes. 

So why not do the questionnaire, perhaps towards the end of every year, reflections of the past and hopes for the future, ( I'm going to do this), and keep it to look back upon in a couple of years.
