This is a fantastic question! We’ve often seen far too many people actually hiding their true selves and suppressing their strengths. This can be because of teachers, mentors and even friends who don’t make us feel safe to show the true spirit of who we are — especially when who we are is quite special or our potential is underutilized. If I could give you a piece of advice it would be to work on showing more of your personality in small ways first. For example, I’ve got a comic book obsessed friend who geeks out on comics. He knows everything. He always felt like an outlier but I’ve shared with him some of the philosophies of Rare Breed and now he’s tapping into that and really finding like-minded folks. He used to be ashamed of it, now he owns it. Remember, not everyone clicks with everyone so some folks might dig the real you. Just think about how controversial Lady Gaga has been. The people that love her, truly love her. But there are many people who think she’s just super weird. When you start finding your Rare Breed tribe, so to speak, you’ll find that they’ll celebrate and even begin to trust who you are at work, as a friend, etc. I’d encourage you to buy our book Rare Breed, A Guide to Success for the Defiant, Dangerous and Different — it discusses how to build trust by doubling down on all of who you are, not just the pretty parts! http://amzn.to/2Lb6FHV

I took the test. I came up as weird. I’m a creative so it goes with imagination. I was fine until you said Lady Gaga is super weird like it’s a bad thing ... what does your research show with success as a weirdo?
