“YOU-Q:” How Do You See Your Inner & Outer Beauty?

I came across a fun quiz in the November 2008 issue of O Magazine, The YOU-Q Test. The quiz measures the gap between the “Current YOU - the person you are right now” from the “Potential YOU - the person you’d like to be.” It suggests that the more these two YOUs are aligned (the smaller the gap), the “closer you are to finding in yourself authentic beauty.” (See You: Being Beautiful.)

Sounds a lot like Get A Life That Doesn’t Suck? The YOU-Q Test examines how you view your inner and outer beauty. Whereas, Get A Life That Doesn’t Suck measures the gap between what you think and what you actually do. 

Specifically, the YOU-Q Test looks at four major areas. The results of your quiz will identify areas you can focus on to bring the two “YOU’s” into greater alignment.

  • Looking Beautiful - how you look
  • Feeling Beautiful - how you feel
  • Being Beautiful - how satisfied you are
  • Understanding You - how you see/perceive yourself

What I really liked about the quiz is that it helped me see that I’m not very far off from where I’d like to be relative to how I look, feel and see myself. I can be so hard on myself about certain things sometimes. So it was a great reminder that I genuinely like several of my personality traits and also how I see myself. It was nice to give myself the gift of a quick ego boost!

If you’ve watched Oprah in the last few years, you’ve heard of Dr. Mehmet Oz and Dr. Michael Roizen. These guys write the You Books. Check out their site Real Age: Live Life To The Youngest.
