Johari

Spcknght found something pretty cool - it's a Johari window generator. The Johari Window was invented by Joseph Luft and Harrington Ingram in the 1950s as a model for mapping personality awareness. By describing yourself from a fixed list of adjectives, then asking your friends and colleagues to describe you from the same list, a grid of overlap and difference can be built up.

I've always been very curious about how others perceive me versus how I perceive myself. One thing that I noticed while doing this was the lack of negative words - there are a few that lean towards the negative, but very few. I suppose it doesn't hurt to put a positive spin on things, but, in light of that, how accurate can it be? What if I saw myself as irresponsible, obnoxious and annoying? lol

If you would be so kind, please visit my Johari window and submit the words you associate with me. Hey, it never hurts to delve into a bit of self-analysis, huh? You can create your own there, too. C'mon - you know you wanna. :)

    This is from what I know of you on the blog; there's undoubtedly much more in person.
