Was it something i said, or just my personality?
Everyone grows and changes throughout their life. But a major personality change usually isn't part of this process of growing up.

Some are silly—like the internet quiz that tells everyone who takes it that they are procrastinators at the core. Other questionnaires, developed and sold as tools to help people hire the right candidate or find love, take themselves more seriously. The trouble is, if you ask the experts, most of these might not be worth the money. One famous example of a popular but dubious commercial personality test is the Myers—Briggs Type Indicator. The questions are confusing and poorly worded. Personality questionnaires began evolving about a century ago, says Jim Butcher, an emeritus psychologist at the University of Minnesota.

This is the story of a little pound man in India who went around four-fifths naked, who lived in a mud hut that never had a telephone or an electric light or running water. He did not own an automobile. He had no wealth, no diplomats, no armies. He never sought, nor ever held, a public office, and yet the great British government discovered that they could not rule India against Gandhi and they could not rule India without Gandhi. The Indian people understood that Gandhi was absolutely honest, that he could be trusted, that his motives were right.
