The Proust Questionnaire is an ingenious device for discovering the roots of one’s personality in just several questions. It was popularized by French author Marcel Proust, who believed that answering these queries reveals what you truly are: greedy or kind-hearted; confident or insecure…
There are different versions of this questionnaire. Over the years it was changed and modified according to the situation and particular needs.
Panda Group Magento Agency’s Backstage
At Panda Group we have also created our own version of the Proust Questionnaire and asked our team members to answer them. Our purpose is to let us know each other better. And we had fun answering them and spending some time on self-recognition.
In this fast-moving world stopping for a while and thinking about such details as annoying sounds, favourite characters and favourite places can be refreshing. Many thanks to all Pandas ready to share their thoughts and show their nature.
