Nearly every culture on Earth managed to establish a set of directions to help orient themselves at some time in history because how could we not? The way we navigate life involves navigating the world on which we live and that means knowing where things are. We need direction to determine where to go and how to get there. How to tell others where we are, or where other things of importance are. Without direction, what do we have? A set of landmarks lost in space? That helps no one. So direction has long been key to who we are and how we live. And given their incredible importance, is it a stretch to wonder how the cardinal directions, North, South, East, and West, relate to you as a person? Each direction really does have its own unique flair and the very words tend to represent certain thoughts and feelings without any other context required.
So who are you? Which was does your inner compass point? What cardinal directions peaks to the soul of you as a person as you navigate your way through life along whatever path you're on? We bet we can make a pretty good guess. All you need to do is take the quiz!
