We are "made in God's image," which means our true selves (the spirit aspect of us) reflect some aspect or aspects of God's nature. To identify what you reflect, choose your favorite story about Jesus from Scripture, evaluate what draws you to that story, then determine what aspects of God's nature Jesus is reflecting in that story. (For example, in the story of the woman at the well, Jesus reveals Himself as a lover of truth, as compassionate, as generous and giving, and as gracious.) Once you identify the aspects of God's nature reflected by Jesus in the story, look at your own heart and see how those same characteristics are present in you. You will likely find your own nature reflects those aspects of Jesus. This is a cool way to uncover who you were created by God to be.
