Did you know you could learn a lot about yourself by drawing a pig?
When I travel around the country, I often do a series of "Attitude Adjustment Exercises." The exercises are really a series of games that are great visual learning tool.
One of my favorite exercises to lead is called "The Pig Test." It's a great ice breaker and a great way for people to learn about themselves.
I first took the test almost 20 years ago. Now it's something I share with people around the world.
I've decided to share the test with you as a thank you for reading my blog. Take the test and when you're done, feel free to share it with others. If you want to share it via Twitter or Instagram, take a picture of your drawing and post the photo with the hashtag "#PigTest" and share it with me @frankkitchen.
