In a day and age with social sites dedicated to describing and talking about ourselves, we try to get folks to narrow it down to just a word.


For some reason, it’s much simpler to talk about something other than yourself.

When students and faculty members were asked to describe themselves in one word, answers did not come quickly.

It makes you wonder: If you had to choose, what word would you use to describe yourself?
