Back when I was in high school, I took a leadership class, and though the subject matter was somewhat indefinable, it may have been one of the more valuable classes I had because it taught me life skills like communication and working with other people. In fact, one assignment still lingers with me today. We were asked to share with our classmates what our first impression of them had been and then fill in the following statement:
People usually assume that I ______ but what they'd be surprised to know about me is ______.
It was fascinating to find out how misperceived everyone was. Since I know that this is applicable at any age and point in life, try filling in the blanks yourselves. Tell me: What do people assume about you? But what are you really?
