Are you a tie-dyed shirt, a singing novelty toy, or a sled?

Learn more about yourself with the new personality quiz based on what you own!

Menlo Park, CA, July 9, 2007 – MyThings, the global online registry of belongings and the only free web service to provide a true one-stop shop to help people organise and manage their belongings, today announces it has introduced a personality quiz that can tell people a little about themselves based on the things they own.

They say “you are what you eat” – can it be true that “you are you what you own” as well? What do your possessions say about you? What do they reveal about your inner soul? Are you a tie-dye t-shirt, always looking on the bright side? Or a wooden sled, rough on the outside but fun to be with once people get to know you? Perhaps you’re a singing novelty toy, ready to break out into song?

“We’re all about things,” says MyThings CEO Benny Arbel. “Buying things. Enjoying things. Taking care of things – and then replacing things responsibly. The MyThings personality quiz is a fun way for members to express a bit of who they are through cherished belongings – theirs and others.”

More than just a personality magnet, MyThings offers people instant product information about their things, as well as a wide range of services to get the most out of them – from the time they purchase an item right through to the time they choose to dispose of it.

MyThings helps people to enjoy and care for their things through custom services, including instant access to product accessories, downloads, manuals and repair information. When it’s time to dispose of them, MyThings offers both instant and personal valuations to help people put a cash value on their things. And, through a seamless integration with eBay, MyThings makes it easy for people to sell the things they no longer want or need, as well as make it easy to find local donation and recycle drop off spots.

Only on can people learn more about themselves – and get the most out of the things they own. What do your things say about you?
