That’s all.

Think you’re self-aware? Think again
(The Guardian, May 26 2017)

Oliver Burkeman:

“The psychologist Tasha Eurich reports that 95% of people think they’re self-aware – that is, conscious of what really makes them tick and how they come across to others – yet only about 10-15% of us truly are.

The discrepancy shouldn’t come as a surprise, since one thing people with no self-awareness are going to lack self-awareness about, you’d assume, is their lack of self-awareness.

Doubtless you’re familiar with this phenomenon: your world is probably full of people – friends, colleagues, bosses – who seemingly haven’t a clue how others really see them. (…)

“The assumption that introspection leads to self-awareness is a myth.” In other words, looking deeply into who you are isn’t a reliable way to understand who you are.

For one thing, we’re highly susceptible to judging our lives, as a whole, on the basis of fleeting emotional states. (…) For another, we get bogged down in stories about ourselves, whether they’re true or false. (…)

What can we do? Among numerous strategies, Eurich recommends asking yourself questions that begin with “what?” rather than “why?”: not “Why do I hate my job?” or “Why isn’t this relationship working?”, but “What don’t I like about my job?” and “What’s not working in this relationship?”

“Why” has a tendency to suck you back into stories and inconclusive rumination; “what” is more likely to help identify your personality traits or patterns of behaviour so that you can either change them or change your job, relationship, etc, to accommodate them.

Like meditation and journaling – which Eurich also recommends – this allows you to objectify yourself to yourself.

She quotes Spinoza: “An emotion, which is a passion, ceases to be a passion as soon as we form a clear and distinct idea thereof.”

In some fundamental way, genuine self-knowledge relies on coming to see yourself as a stranger – as opposed to someone you already love (or hate) so much that you’re blinded to the truth.”
