Self-Knowledge in psychology
is the information an individual draws upon
when answering the questions:
Who am I?
How did I become who I am?
Who do I want to be?"
To answer these questions, you must get to know
yourself through steps such as:
Reflecting curiously the values that drive your behaviour.
Listening openly to how people see and experience you.
Observing carefully your inner conversations about yourself.
Do an Experiment:
What am I thinking, feeling and doing?
Why do I experience this situation this way?
How do my perspectives impact my interactions?
As you go through your day, observe and reflect on
your thoughts, emotions and behavior.
Deeper knowledge of yourself
has the profound power to shape your:
Sense of Self
Sense of Others
Behaviour and Role in the World
"If most of us remain ignorant of ourselves,
it is because self-knowledge (can be) painful
and we prefer the pleasures of illusion."
