- What is self-awareness and how should it be developed?
1. Pay attention to the things that bother you about other people
Sometimes things that irritate you in other people can be a reflection of certain aspects of yourself that you don’t like and so is the area in which you work.
Also, it may be because they think and process differently than they do and it prompts you to re-evaluate and upgrade your understanding.
I find myself uncomfortable when I reflect on certain behaviors that annoy me in some of the people I know socially, when I touch some part of my nature.
2. Pay attention to things that hurt other people about you
You meet and communicate with people who have an immediate and strong reluctance for reasons you do not see.
A few years ago, I was very sad to find out that there was some guy in my social circle called Mike. At the time I was completely unaware of this and when another social interaction took place, he was anxious about the upcoming social gatherings because this guy and I were both attending the same event.
3. Observe completeness and observe repetitive patterns of our thoughts and emotions
Thich Nat Hanh teaches us how to raise awareness by recognizing that our true home does not exist in the past and does not exist in the future. Our real home is here and now.
You understand that what is important is not the content of your thoughts, but your relationship with your thoughts.
This leads you to realize that it is not your thoughts.
4. Know your emotional triggers
One of the benefits of mindfulness is that you learn to respond to yourself when your emotions are aroused.
Having practiced intelligently for about 15 years I can now say with certainty that this practice is a process that helps me learn about my emotional trigger points painfully and regularly.
I have learned to handle my reactions to the big issues that have to do with the relationship. And things that happen in business and let them pass without sinking into my feelings.
5. Ask and listen to feedback
Choose and trust people you know well and ask them for objective feedback about you in specific situations.
I occasionally ask for feedback from my family and close work colleagues, and what I notice is the difference between how I think people are talking and how they are receiving it!
For example, I was often told that I would adopt the Kurt and Bose style. And say things in a way that seemed to tell people what to do. Inside my head, I was very reasonable and helpful.
6. Try different experiences – travel or learn a new skill
Going to new and unfamiliar places and stepping outside your comfort zones will show you about yourself. It can be as big as international travel or get a new interest in interacting with different people with your general audience.
Working in Singapore and traveling extensively across Southeast Asia and meeting. Working and socializing with people from many different backgrounds has challenged me and helped me in many ways and certainly boosted my self-awareness.
7. Take psychometric tests
Take one of the popular tests like Myers-Briggs or Engram. It turned out to be a real game for me! For many years of my adult life I was able to see how, why others could not see what I could see, why they could not assess the situation – especially in business- and see exactly what to do [or at least what I thought I needed to do]!
