"The Best Years of Our Lives." That's how many people describe their college experience - in retrospect. The truth is, when most of us set out for college, it's often our first extended journey away from home and the comfort and watchful eye of parents, family, friends, coaches, and the familiarity of what we grew up with. Exciting? Absolutely! Daunting? Quite likely.

In this section of articles at, we'd like to help you gain success throughout your college career by better understanding yourself, your strengths, and your weaker points, based on a better understanding of your own personality and those around you - including roommates, professors, and (oh yeah...) your parents (prepare for those college holiday trips home). The best place to start is to begin with yourself, by taking The Keirsey Temperament Sorter-II. Then skim the articles in this section - figure out how to get along with your (weird) new roommate, or reach out to your distant and haughy-seeming professor. Be ready for that first holiday trip home - you know you've changed, but what's wrong with everyone else who didn't go off to college?

Are you in the right major? How do you know? What else might be a fit for your natural strengths and talents? Is grad school in your future? How about an internship?

It's all here at! (and if you don't find what you need in this section, try Temperament and Love or Temperament and Careers!
