Testomania

2013 Column Contest Winner

Humans have long sought to unlock the mysteries of consciousness, shouting questions into the void like “Who am I?” “Can we talk about me for a minute?” and “Why is it always about walruses with you, Jason?” In Testomania, Janet Manley uses psychometrics to advance study into the nascent topic of yourself, helping explain why some of us seek the spotlight, while others of us devote our twilight years to pet portraiture.
