Test Yourself: What Makes You Good and Kind

Each of us has a certain kind of kindness, through which we take care of our friends and loved ones, and provide them with support in their moments of need. However, the kindness that exists in each person comes from different places and is expressed differently. Today, you’ll discover the source of your kindness and how it is expressed, even in moments when you yourself may not be aware of it...

Nurturing Kindness

Michael Heiss
 
You have a nurturing kindness, meaning you always see the good in others and as soon as you understand their strengths, you know how to help them grow, develop and thrive, and thus become better people. It means that every person you meet becomes better because of you, and therefore the world becomes a little better every time you help someone else.
Selfless kindness

There are people who are kind to others just so that they can feel good about themselves, but your kindness comes from a real place of desire to help people. You're willing to do anything for your friends, and that includes helping them move or even just lending them a coat when they are cold. Your friends are lucky that you are part of their lives.
Helpful Kindness

Teamwork is your specialty, and by helping others you know you're helping make your life better. You have many talents that most of your friends don’t, and your friends have abilities that you don’t have - you have a wonderful relationship of mutual help that compensates for one another’s weaknesses.
Attentive Kindness

Your ear is always available to your friends, because your kindness is listening, and you're pretty good at it. Your friends feel comfortable sharing their concerns and pressures, and your ability to understand them and offer them solutions to their problems is very important to them. You also never forget the things they tell you, and although you may think this is not such an impressive trait, it is important that you know that most people aren’t great listeners.
Embracing Kindness

Your kindness is expressed with affection. You will always provide a shoulder to cry on or open arms to help your friends and people close to your heart, which makes you a special person because not everyone can bear the pain of others like you can. Never change, because affectionate people are rare!
Loyal Kindness

Not only are you a kind person, but you are also loyal and will always be there for your friends when they are in need. Whether it's a family member's medical emergency, a friend's need to find an apartment or anything else, they can count on you for help with any problem. You stand your ground in every situation, and it is very rare to find a person like you in an age of distractions and pressures. Continue what you do, because you are a wonderful person and you deserve to know it!
