Intrapersonal Communication is communicating with ones' self. I know, it sounds like you've gone crazy! But think about it, everytime you pick out what you're going to wear, practice a difficult conversation in your head, solve a math problem, write in your planner, or journal, you're communicating with yourself. 

The key to a balanced person and successful intrapersonal communciation is to make sure your "inside" and your "outside" match. Do you show everyone in your life the real you, or do you sometimes feel like you're wearing a mask that is hiding the real you?

The Meyrs-Briggs Personality Inventory is widely regarded as one of the best personality tests around. Take the free online version to get a starting point to figuring out who you are on the inside and outside:
