NORWAY – Teens ages 13 to 18 who want to find out how they tick are invited to “Get to Know Yourself @ Your Library!” from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 10.

Young Adult Services at Norway Memorial Library is offering the program and all teens have to do is take a free online psychological profile test similar to the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator.

The test is based on the idea that people’s personalities can be understood based on their answers to four basic questions: Where do you draw your energy from? How do you take in information? How do you make decisions? How do you like to run your life?

The online test asks 70 questions focused in the four areas. Each question can be answered in one of two ways and the test can be completed in 10 to 15 minutes. Those who answer all questions will immediately get their score. Those wishing are asked to take the results to the program.

Program facilitators will be Tally DeCato of Norway, who will explain the different profile types and use examples that highlight the characteristics of each type, and Sarah Shepley and Libby Graffam of the Youth Advocacy Program of Healthy Oxford Hills, who will help teens understand the information using group activities and role-playing skits.

Participants will also learn some tips on becoming a better communicator – in school and with friends and family.

Preregistration is required. Snacks will be provided by Healthy Oxford Hills. Those who register will be given the online site or participants can go to the library at 12:30 p.m. to take the test before the program begins. Call the Norway Memorial Library at 743-5309 for more information or to register. Deadline is Friday, Feb. 9.
