OK, not actually "me" in all my unique "Carl Robert Merola Jr.-ness", but another Rob Merola in all his unique "Robert Merola-ness". I've never met him, but based on his blog (yep, he blogs too) I think I might like to. The post below gives you an idea why.
Though he is writing from a business perspective, and this does seem like a great exercise in that context, it also seems like something that might be equally helpful in applying personally.
Yeah, I know, he could work a little on his spelling--but let's face it: If you read my blog even occasionally, you know I could too.
Anyway, take a gander at a cool post from Rob Merola of MerolaDesign:
Charles Dickens’s Christmas Carol reveals seven unflattering adjectives describing Scrooge, “squeezing, wrenching, grasping, scraping, clutching, covetous old sinner.”
The original manuscript revels that Dickens considered many others.

Could you effectively describe yourself in seven words?
This challenge comes up every time Merola Design works with a new client. It’s not easy, but it is an essential step in building a strong brand and effective corporate Identity. The truth is you have more then seven words if you include your company’s name, tag-line and logo. Leveraging these elements and taking care to avoid redundancy, can help you more fully describe your companies unique value proposition.
