Know Your Shape to Shape Your World

Take the ‘LIFE-SHAPES' online personality appraisal. Find out who you are and what you can bring to the movement. Every one of us has strengths and weaknesses; that is why we are called to be inter-dependent not independent. Learning about your shape will help you understand the personal benefit you will gain from being part of Pais. Plus it will help you see the specific impact you can have on a Pais team.

How to take the appraisal

Note that this appraisal works best when it is done quickly without over-analyzing it. You will get the most accurate appraisal if you can do this quickly and without speaking to another person or asking other people for their thoughts.

Step 1: Go through the questions giving each answer a score of 1 to 4.
Step 2: Please give 4 points to the answer you think most represents you, 3 to the next, 2 to the next and finally give a score of 1 to the answer that least represents you.
Step 3: When you answered ALL the questions, press the 'Discover your shape' - button.
