Taking personality assessment tests makes me realize certain things

about myself . It also makes me understand other people 's preferences and

tendencies which may pave the way for a better relationship with them .

Constructing a Johari Window is another way to improve self-knowledge .

Let me now discuss what I have done in details .

In the first quadrant , which represents my Open Self , or the side that

are known to me and to others , I have put the adjectives sympathetic ,

caring , and emotional . Being a ''feeler ' I understand the complexity

of emotions which makes me compassionate towards other people . I always

put myself in their shoes and try to imagine where they are coming from .

During times of conflict , I try hard not to cast judgment and talk to

the person involved to straighten things out . I also try to mediate in

cases when the persons around are in some kind of fight . It gives me a

special kind of joy when I am able to help them understand each other

and get along well .

In the second quadrant , which represents my Blind Window , or the side

that are known to others but not to me , I have put the adjectives ,

extroverted , friendly and confident . I got these responses during my

''interviews ' with my friends and family . I must say I was surprised

with these descriptions . But I must say they are right in saying that I

am friendly . Having a temperament of an idealist , I believe that being

friendly cooperation is the best way for people to get what they want .

It also ensures a win-win situation for everyone . I am however doubtful

that I am indeed confident . I may have posted myself as such but I know

that I have a LOT of insecurities that I have to work with . Also , I

disagree that I am extroverted .
