As it's the Easter weekend you might have a few minutes for quiet contemplation. If so then try doing a personality test. This one is based around what psychologists call "The Big Five". These are the main five traits that have been found to best describe people's behaviour.
This particular test also gives you the sub-divisions within each trait. You may already know that you're an extrovert for example, but how do you compare to others in gregariousness, cheerfulness or assertiveness?
There's 120 questions in this one but it doesn't take that long to complete. Go on, you just might learn something.

The Bookseller, “Editor’s Pick,” 10/12/12 “Sensible and very readable…By far the most useful of this month’s New You offerings.”
Kirkus Reviews, 1/1/13 “Making changes does take longer than we may expect—no 30-day, 30-pounds-lighter quick fix—but by following the guidelines laid out by Dean, readers have a decent chance at establishing fulfilling, new patterns.”
Publishers Weekly, 12/10/12 “An accessible and informative guide for readers to take control of their lives.”
