The Proust Questionaire - In my words

Have you know about The Proust Questionnaire?

I've heard about about this But I have know idea what was it, until I did research about the history of it. 

Marcel Proust was a French writer who took this survey several times with enthusiasm. He believed that people must know and understand themselves before they could know and understand others. Thus, he developed a list of subjective questions that he felt would help reveal a person's true selves and true nature.
