It gives a sense of responsibility to make important life decisions and a better understanding of themselves is attained. Understanding one’s assets and liabilities, highlights and challenges, give a better understanding to humans about life purpose, goals and to seek the betterment in the right direction with knowledge of all aye and nay.
